Transit Visa:

Transit Visa: Cruise passengers can obtain a transit visa stamp on board, provided free of charge by the Egyptian Immigration Association.


Tour Availability:

We offer tours from all Egyptian ports: Alexandria, Safaga, Port Said and Ain Sokhna.

If your cruise is scheduled to arrive later than 7 AM or depart before 9 PM from Alexandria or Port Said, we recommend opting for a day trip to Cairo to exclusively visit the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Given the time constraints, it would be challenging to include any additional sights beyond these iconic landmarks. This recommendation ensures you can enjoy a memorable visit to these ancient wonders and return to your cruise ship on time.


Our tours are small group tours, and can also be fully customized as private VIP tours upon request.


Tours and Prices:

Prices are quoted in USD but payment in Euro or British Pound is also accepted. 


Accessible Tours:

 We cater private tours to travelers with disabilities, offering accessible holiday options.


More Affordable than Cruise Line Excursions:

Our prices are consistently lower than those offered by cruise lines, with savings of up to 40% in some cases. We believe that you should enjoy outstanding experiences without overpaying. In instances where our prices are higher, it reflects the superior quality of our excursions. These often involve smaller, more intimate groups, providing a more bespoke experience with a lower guide-to-guest ratio.

Superior Quality Compared to Cruise Line Tours:

 We are dedicated to delivering exceptional experiences. Unlike the typical cruise line tours that often have more than 50 people per group, our tours are tailored for smaller groups. This ensures a more personalised and enjoyable experience, allowing for in-depth exploration and individual attention


Hotel Ratings in Egypt:


Note that hotel ratings in Egypt differ from those in the USA or Europe. We recommend choosing Luxury hotels (Plan B) for a true 5-star experience. Standard (Plan A) hotels, although officially rated 5-star in Egypt, are more akin to 3-star by international standards.
