The amazing things you'll be doing:

Journey back in time in the land of the Pharaohs. There cannot be many places that excite the imagination as much as Egypt.
We uncover the secrets of the Ancient Pharaohs on a tour that takes us from the massive Pyramids at
Giza to the deep tombs cut into the earth at the Valley of the Kings.
We ride donkeys in
Luxor, snorkel in the Red Sea with its fantastic coral and marine life and haggle in the markets for souvenirs.
An adventure not to be missed!

this tour:

This is a 'small group family adventure' - typically you will join several other families and travel in a group of approx. 16 people. The trips are great value and a great way for you and your children to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of time to yourselves. Most adventure kids tend to be aged between 7 and 15, but some are younger (minimum age 6) and some older (perhaps travelling as part of a larger family group). Please check with the operator to confirm the minimum age for this trip.
