Ever wanted to get to the heart of the coolest place this side of 2000BC, complete with nose-less monuments, towering pyramids and bejewelled camels? Of course you have. Get yourself to Egypt, post haste.
You’ve kind of got to see it to believe it in Egypt – the chaos of Cairo (seriously, this city never stops); the epic awesomeness of the Pyramids of Giza and world’s most famous nose-less lady-lion, The Sphinx; sailing into the sunset on a felucca cruise along the Nile, then jumping on the back of a camel and riding into Luxor’s Valley of the Kings.
If you want to walk like an Egyptian, this is where you do it. It’s even better with a crew of 18-29 year olds on a small group adventure with Geckos.
Egypt travel highlights
Walk like an Egyptian among the Pyramids of Giza
These have to be the world’s most impressive tombstones. Also nearby is that rather famous half human/half lion – the Sphinx
Cruise down the Nile River on a felucca
It sounds a bit like a whale, but a felucca is actually a traditional wooden boat with canvas sails (and your ticket down the Nile)
Ride a donkey into the Valley of the Kings
Because when you travel to the underground crypts of the New Kingdom pharaohs, you should travel in style

Egypt Unearthed, April 2017
The tour through Egypt was amazing with high exposure to incredible history (both ancient and modern). Our guide was so knowledgeable and infectious with his enthusiasm for Egyptian culture and history. Highlights were the felucca trip, the Pyramids and our tour of Cairo city.

Egypt Unearthed, March 2017
Amazing tour - very well organised, ticked off all the major must see sights, and a perfect way to see Egypt for the first time. Our guide, Ahmed, was fantastic, as was all the accomodation - especially the felucca! Takes away all the hassle of planning a multi stop trip but there was still plenty of free time to explore alone and do your own thing.
