Egypt is a literal gem, very much underrated when it comes to holiday destinations. This North African country has so much history and beauty that you are sure to be amazed. If you are familiar with Ancient Egypt, the pyramids, the pharaohs, the tombs and temples, then seeing these wonders in real life is a surreal experience. Learning about the history of a country while being able to see the old architecture, museums and ancient artifacts makes it magical. The true essence of Egypt can be found while you move from Cairo to Luxor and Aswan. Discover majestic temples and incredible architecture, all built by man.

You also have the option to relax by the red sea. Drive to Hurghada and experience vast beaches, golden sand and world class hotels.
