Highlights

Luxor


Luxor is often called the world’s greatest open-air museum, but that comes nowhere near describing this extraordinary place.

Petra


Petra, the great Ancient 'Red-Rose City, is one of the world's most treasured Unesco Heritage Sites.

Sharm El Sheikh


The crystal-clear waters and incredible variety of exotic fish darting in and out of the colourful coral reefs have made this spot a snorkeling mecca of the Red Sea region.
