Amazing Winter experiences
There are some incredible experiences you could enjoy of a Travelsphere winter holiday - we share some of our highlights.
Shrouded in mystery and intrigue and home to some of the world’s most famous historical treasures, Egypt guided holidays are on most people’s must-do lists.
On an escorted tour to Egypt you can explore ancient wonders such as the Pyramids at Giza, the temples of Karnak and the excavated tombs located in Luxor’s haunting Valley of the Kings. You can descend into many of the tombs and gaze in disbelief at the near-perfect condition of some of the paintings and hieroglyphics which adorn the walls of these underground treasure troves. In the Egyptian Museum in Cairo you can marvel at the riches discovered inside the tomb of Tutankhamun, the boy king who died in his late teens and remained at rest for more than 3,300 years before he was discovered, as well as view thousands of other ancient artefacts housed there including many mummies, sarcophagi, sculptures, household items and grand statues.
Many people who take Egypt tours plan to take a panoramic cruise on the River Nile, which flows through nine countries and is the longest river in the world. The stunning natural scenery of the Sinai Peninsula and vast expanses of desert which are home to the nomadic Bedouin tribes are yet more mesmerizing sights to be admired on holidays to Egypt.
