Egypt family tour - Pyramids, camels, Sphinx's and kids

egypt family holidays- egypt with kidsEgypt Family tour and Nile cruise - Ancient Egypt has always captured the imagination of children. Pyramids, secret passages, mummies, tombs, treasure and camel rides appeal to kids' sense of the macabre, mysterious, fun and excitement.  Our Egyptian Family Adventure is private vehicle tour where you and your family have your own vehicle and guide.  With boats, planes, horse and cart, feluccas and more there is no chance for the kids to get bored. 

The 11 Day Egypt Family Adventure tour starts in Cairo with visits to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx including a camel ride and a visit to the Egyptian museum. An optional extra is the sound and light show at the pyramids.

The tour then includes a sleeper train trip from Cairo to Luxor including a horse and carriage ride through the streets of Luxor and visits to the fabulous tombs and Temples of Luxor.  From Luxor experience a Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan. The tour also include a felucca ride around Kitcheners Island in Aswan famous for its exotic bird and plant life and a visit to a Nubian village where the people retain their ancient costumes, customs and architecture.  From Aswan travel on the sleeper train for the return trip to Cairo. The final afternoon in Cairo is at leisure giving the family the opportunity to explore the markets and favourite sights of Cairo.
