Originally a fishing village, Hurghada has long since morphed into today’s dense band of resorts and hotels that marches along the coastline for more than 20km. It is a great destination for combining a diving holiday with the Nile Valley sites. Further offshore there is still superb diving aplenty; local NGOs are helping the town clean up its act, and the southern resort area and Sigala's sparklingly modern marina have brought back some of Hurghada's sheen.
Egypt’s trove of ancient ruins is more than anyone could take in in a single lifetime. You may start with the Great Pyramid of Giza, the largest pyramid in the world, with its stuffy interior and imposing façade. And you may choose to marvel at the mystery of the Sphinx, whose origins and maker are still unknown. Or you may choose to study Egypt’s lesser-known ancient Christian and medieval Muslim sites with their labyrinths of churches and mosques. In a land where the sand meets the sea, Egypt’s wonders are endless. These are our favorite roundtrips, as with most of our trips, the itinerary can be tailored around your preferences.
