Aswan

Aswan is a charming city in the south of Egypt characterized by stunning Nile scenery, archeological temples and the brightly colored houses of the Nubian people.

Luxor

The city of Luxor is known as the ‘world’s largest open air museum’ and is home to some of Egypt’s most significant surviving ancient monuments.

When is the best time to go?

The best time to visit Egypt is between October and April when temperatures are cooler. However, it is important to note that between the winter months of December and February – prime tourist season in Cairo – the crowds can be rather unpleasant to manage. Swarms of tourists visit in the winter which means you’ll be battling with long lines at the main attractions and finding availability at hotels might be more difficult. 

 

We recommend visiting during late fall (October – November) and the spring (March – April). During these shorter shoulder seasons, temperatures are still comfortable and crowds are either yet to arrive, or are waning after the mad winter rush.
