The Great Pyramids of Giza

You’ll visit all 3 of the major pyramids and even enter the greatest pyramid and climb all the way to its center. And to top it all off, you’ll have an incredible guide along with you explaining to you the history and incredible things we’ve learnt of the Ancient Egyptians. 

The Red Sea

We spend a full day at sea on our own private boat. After a couple of island visits,  you’ll snorkel amidst some of the best coral reefs in the world. And, for those looking for a little more adventure, Scuba diving gear and instructors will be at your disposal.

Ancient Temples

During Egypt Tryp, you’ll visit 6 unique temples that cover over 3,000 years of history. From the help of your professional tour guide, you’ll learn the story Ramses the 2nd as you stand next to his tomb and the rich history of so many other pharaohs including Cleopatra, Hatchepsut and King Tut.

  Every single day you’ll be learning about, meeting and making friends with all types of Egyptians including Bedouins, Nubians, and more. And as is the Egyptian tradition, every new encounter must be accompanied with traditional cuisine.

“Not at all touristy!”

The experience was not at all touristy, and truly felt off the beaten path which was exactly what I was looking for. It would have been very difficult to do this by myself. To top it off, the group was made up of easy-going, like-minded people. Recommend 100%!
