Cairo: The bustling capital is where you'll find the iconic Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. But that's not all – explore the Egyptian Museum, stroll through the historic streets of Islamic Cairo, and feast on delicious street food.

Luxor: This city is like an open-air museum with its jaw-dropping temples and ancient tombs, including the Valley of the Kings. It's a history buff's dream come true. It's also the place you start a river cruise journey down the majestic River Nile.

Sharm El Sheikh: For some serious beach vibes, head to Sharm El Sheikh. It's a haven for snorkeling and diving, with coral reefs that'll leave you spellbound. With so many hotels on offer here, you'll have plenty of options to choose from for a late deal.

Hurghada: If water sports are your jam, Hurghada is the place to be. Dive into the Red Sea, go windsurfing, or take a boat trip to Giftun Island.

Diving and Snorkeling: The Red Sea is a treasure trove of marine life. Get your snorkelling or scuba gear and explore the vibrant coral reefs teeming with fish, turtles, and even the occasional dolphin.

Desert Safaris: Ever ridden a camel or gone quad biking in the desert? Well, now's your chance. The Egyptian deserts offer epic landscapes, Bedouin encounters, and stargazing under a million stars.

Nile River Cruise: Sail down the Nile River in style. You'll pass by ancient temples, lush landscapes, and charming villages. It's a history lesson with a view.

Tasting Egyptian Cuisine: Don't miss out on Egyptian food. Try dishes like koshari (a mix of lentils, pasta, and rice), shawarma, and tasty street eats like falafel and ta'ameya.

Historical Exploration: Of course, we can't not talk about the exciting history of the country. Explore the wonders of Luxor and marvel at the Temples of Karnak, Hatshepsut, and Luxor. Visit the Valley of the Kings and step into the tombs of pharaohs.
