Our expert travel consultants will create a tailor-made luxury Egypt holiday offering you the very best hotels and experiences the country has to offer. The people of Egypt are lovely and keen to show you the very best of their country, it is a great holiday destination and offers something for everyone, it is also perfect for some sun during our winter months.

Cruising the Nile River

Taking a Nile cruise is the best introduction to this fascinating country. With so much focus on the Nile, a river cruise offers the perfect platform from which to access many of the country’s greatest archaeological treasures and sights.

There are many boats to choose from which can become a bit of a minefield when deciding which boat to choose. Steppes Travel only works with a handful of the smaller vessels and know each of them personally so we can advise which would best suit your holiday depending on the type of experience you are looking for.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

The choice of accommodation was absolutely excellent throughout! Mohamed Saad, our guide from Luxor onwards, was outstanding and should be recommended strongly. We also hired an ornithological expert ( Shaban ) for a morning - excellent.
