Overview

More beautiful than a desert mirage and with thousands of years of history and culture waiting to be uncovered, Egypt is a destination that will leave you speechless. This dazzling tour, which takes in all the highlights of Egypt, is guaranteed to have you – and a friend – talking about its wondrous sights, sounds and experiences for years to come.

Over 14 unforgettable days, you’ll take in icons like the Pyramids at Giza, journey through the ages at the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities – home to the Tutankhamun exhibit – and soak up the colour and vibrancy of Old Cairo. Switching gear, climb aboard a Nile River cruise to admire the changing landscape and the extraordinary temples of Edfu, Kom Ombo and Horus. The famed Valley of the Kings – resting place for many of the great pharaohs – is destined to be a highlight, as is the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Although it could easily end there, you’ll also have the opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful Hurghada, a resort town on the Red Sea.

Along the way, you’ll enjoy return international flights, eight nights of 4-star hotel accommodation, including three at a beachfront resort, in addition to 22 meals, informative commentary from an English-speaking Egyptologist guide and so much more!

Visas

Egypt
A tourist visa is a strict requirement when travelling to Egypt on an Australian passport. The tourist visa is available for purchase upon arrival.
Important:
• Please start arranging your visa three weeks before departure to account for any delays due to consulate operating hours.
• Visa rules may have changed since Covid-19. Some countries and airlines may require you to obtain an additional visa before arrival. Please check with the nearest embassy, consulate or immigration department of the destination you're entering.
Please note:
• Passengers who are not Australian citizens must also check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required.
• It is also important to note that some areas of employment, such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations, may have additional restrictions in applying for Visas. This may, in turn, affect the type of application required.

United Arab Emirates (17-Day Package only)
Tourist visas on arrival are available in Dubai on an Australian passport.

Supplier Fees
In the event the Travel Offer you have purchased is unable to proceed, and/or a travel Supplier is unable to fulfil the Travel Offer due to external circumstances (Limitation of Liability e.g. a Force Majeure event), there may be a fee or amount of money that is withheld by our Suppliers and is unrecoverable. This may be due to non-refundable airline tickets, cancellation penalties with cruise cabins or unrecoverable payments with our land/accommodation partners. TripADeal has committed to these costs as your Agent and will endeavour to recover all funds committed and/or paid for your Travel Offer, but this may not be possible in all circumstances. If refunds are unavailable from Suppliers, we will endeavour to obtain a travel credit on the best terms available and communicate these outcomes to you. If TripADeal cannot obtain a refund or travel service credit, or part thereof, this cost is passed on to the customer as a Supplier Fee. This fee is not revenue-raising and is paid to or withheld by our suppliers when recovering payments.
