Egypt means pyramids, camels and mummies, right? Wrong. Ok yes, there are certainly plenty of those but you'd be shortchanging yourself to miss out on taking a Nile cruise, snorkelling with dolphins, climbing Mount Sinai or taking a hot air balloon ride over the ancient town of Luxor. An Egypt tour is far more than just sand and hieroglyphics.
Take a day trip or longer around the Egyptian sights. Even if you'd rather go it on your own, it's still a good idea to get a bit of an induction to the ancient land by taking a guided Cairo tour. Some tours cover the best of both worlds where you can visit the pyramids and cross over into Jordan and check out the ancient lost city of Petra too.
Book your Egypt tour through Student Flights and you'll get to speculate with your tour buddies about how the Sphinx lost its nose in Cairo then haggle your way through bazaars. Next up could be a 3-day Nile cruise set to Arabic pop music. In Luxor, you'll take a donkey ride through the Valley of the Kings. Prefer the beach? Book a tour that includes the seaside village of Dahab on the Sinai Peninsula and you can swim, snorkel and scuba dive to your heart's content. There's plenty of affordable tours and activities on offer, so give us a call to chat about more things to do and see on your Egypt holiday.
The easiest point of access to Egypt is Cairo International Airport, and the country's busiest, which is located around 15 kilometres from the city centre. Student Flights has cheap flights to Cairo with a handful of trusty airlines. No airlines fly direct from Australia to Cairo; however Emirates, Singapore Airlines and Etihad Airways offer a short stopover along the way.
