Egypt Uncovered - Your Passport to Adventure

At Egypt Uncovered, we specialise in tailor-made tours in Egypt and the surrounding region, as well as a range of good value small group tours. We’re a small company, jointly UK and Egyptian owned, with a sales team who have visited Egypt and the Middle East many times, some living and working there for extended periods. Along with a team of professional Egyptologist guides, most of whom have worked with us for over 10 years, this gives us the knowledge and experience to provide innovative and rewarding itineraries from the height of luxury travel to more adventurous and exploratory tours.

Whether you are a solo traveller, a couple, family or small group, you should find a tour on our website that suits you, or provides ideas that we can use to build a custom trip. We're committed to designing itineraries that work well for you, the traveller, and don't cut corners. We include as much as possible in the upfront tour price, while keeping the tours good value and providing clear information about what extras you may need to allow for.

What our travellers have in common is a passion to experience the vast diversity of scenery, history and culture found in the Middle East region. You may like a private holiday just for yourselves, or prefer travelling with a group of like-minded people. Our group tours provide a great opportunity to meet new people, often from different countries themselves, while exploring a new destination.

So, if you're looking to put together a special one-off holiday to one of our featured countries, or you love returning to the region, then we're confident you'll find our Egypt Uncovered tours full of cultural and adventurous experiences ready to inspire you.

This website features a selection of sample Private tours which can either be booked as they are, or used as the base for a customised itinerary that our travel consultants can design for you, adjusting accommodation levels, sites visited and activities included to fit your personal requirements and budget.

Our Small Group tours give you the chance to explore Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and Sudan with fellow like-minded travellers. There are regular departures, all of which run with a minimum of just two people. All these small-group tour itineraries can also be booked as private tours for a small supplement (please ask for details).

Our City Breaks give you the opportunity to visit some of the Middle East's most iconic cities such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Cairo & Beirut. We've also designed special Family tours that you can either enjoy with other families or by yourselves for an exciting and rewarding holiday for both adults and children alike.

The Cruise Tours category brings together both Private and Small Group tours which feature cruises on the Nile and Lake Nasser in Egypt. Our Special Interest tours include a range of sample itineraries focussed focus on specific areas,, such as scuba diving or tours with a religious focus. We also offer a selection of Day Tours in Egypt.

We know that choosing and booking a holiday is an exciting time - we all love travelling ourselves after all. We want you to feel confident when booking your tour with us so you can look forward to your upcoming adventure in a relaxed frame of mind.

You can be reassured that your money is safe with us as we provide all our travellers with comprehensive financial protection through a Financial Failure Insurance Policy provided by Affirma. We are also members of and regulated by ABTA, the UK's largest travel association, representing travel agents and tour operators, and ATTA (the Adventure Travel Trade Association).

While you are on holiday, we will provide you with a local contact number as well as a 24-hour emergency number that you can call anytime should you need to.

The growth in global tourism inevitably impacts upon the fragile environments and cultures that travellers seek to experience. We understand the impacts of our operations, and pro-actively seek to ensure that they are as locally sustainable as possible.

Many of our tours, by definition, travel through a variety of different environments and cultures. We try to cause as little negative impact as possible during our tours and where possible to act in such a way to benefit the local communities and environment.

We use local guides on the vast majority of our tours, as we feel that a resident of the destination you're visiting can give you a better insight into their country, and many of our travellers find our guides a real highlight of their tour.
