A bucket list family holiday destination if ever there was one, Egypt is understandably a perennial favourite, and just under a 5-hour flight from the UK. Not only does a family trip to Egypt bring the (ancient) history books to life, with the wow factor of the Great Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, exploring the Valley of the Kings and wandering through Abu Simbel, Karnak, Luxor (and more), but there’s also a whole heap of other inclusions to keep temple fatigue at bay.
A sunset cruise down the Nile at Aswan by motorboat, en route to the Nubian dinner. Just one of the exciting activities on our Egypt itineraries.
And……relax! Enjoy time to chill as a family on board a felucca. Grab a book, get out the cards, or catch up on some R and R as you gently float along the Nile. Just before sunset, the boat is moored to the river bank and you will sleep overnight under the stars. See where else you can sleep and stay in Egypt.
Round off your trip with a few days on the Red Sea coast for world-class diving! You can find more exciting activities for families in our Egypt with Kids blog.
