Why Travel Solo To Egypt?
The pyramids, the River Nile, vast and ancient temple complexes...Egypt lays claim to some of the world’s most revered treasures.
This is a destination imbued with history and legend, a place that still conjures images of tomb invaders and the discovery of Tutankhamun. And whilst nowadays you’re less likely to unearth gold and riches in an uncharted temple on your tour through Egypt, you will stumble upon treasures of other kinds every way you turn.
Imagine losing yourself in the intense sounds and smells of the labyrinthine Khan al-Khalili Bazaar. Picture the moment you see the pyramids of Giza for the first time. See yourself drifting down the Nile on a traditional sailboat, and witnessing the temples of Luxor by candlelight. These are moments more valuable than gold, we think. Although gold would be nice too.
