“I recently embarked on a breathtaking 9-day journey to Egypt, and I must say, it was an experience of a lifetime! From the moment I arrived until the day of my departure, the level of service and the helpfulness of the staff left me thoroughly impressed. First and foremost, the hospitality extended by the Egyptian people was truly heartwarming. Everywhere I went, from bustling cities to secluded oases, the locals greeted me with genuine warmth and a willingness to assist. Whether it was seeking directions or recommendations for local attractions, their knowledge and friendliness made me feel instantly at home. The tour company I chose for this adventure deserves special mention. Their attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction were evident from the very beginning. The tour guides were not only knowledgeable but also passionate about sharing the rich history and cultural heritage of Egypt. Their insights and anecdotes brought ancient monuments and archaeological sites to life, making each visit an educational and unforgettable experience. Throughout my stay, the accommodations provided were nothing short of exceptional. From luxurious hotels in Cairo to charming boutique resorts in Luxor and Aswan, every establishment was a haven of comfort and elegance. The staff members were attentive, ensuring that all my needs were met promptly and efficiently. Their professionalism and dedication to ensuring a pleasant stay were truly commendable. Transportation arrangements were seamless, with well-maintained vehicles and skilled drivers who navigated Egypt's bustling streets with ease. The tour company's meticulous planning ensured that we made the most of our time, allowing us to explore iconic destinations such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Valley of the Kings and the majestic temples along the Nile. One aspect that truly stood out was the assistance provided by the tour company's staff. They went above and beyond to accommodate my requests and promptly addressed any concerns that arose during the trip. Their commitment to ensuring a smooth and enjoyable journey was evident at every step, making me feel like a valued guest throughout my time in Egypt. The sheer beauty and historical significance of the sites I visited left me awe-inspired. From the grandeur of the Great Sphinx to the colorful hieroglyphics adorning the walls of ancient temples, Egypt's rich cultural heritage unfolded before my eyes. The tour guides' expertise and passion for sharing their country's history added an extra layer of depth to each visit, making the experience all the more enriching. In conclusion, my 9-day trip to Egypt was an extraordinary adventure made even more memorable by the outstanding service and assistance provided by the staff. From the warm hospitality of the Egyptian people to the knowledgeable tour guides and seamless logistics, every aspect of the journey exceeded my expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend exploring Egypt to anyone seeking a blend of history, culture, and exceptional service. It is an experience that will leave an indelible mark on your heart and mind.”
Outstanding King Ramses Tour
5 - Excellent
  • Mark Olson
“We really enjoyed our recent King Ramses Tour of Egypt. Great guide (Nashat), good hotels, enjoyable Nile River cruise and awesome sights and history made for a wonderful experience. Longer-than-preferred bus travel between cities, and the overnight train travel between Cairo and Aswan was less than desirable, but OTG was up front and realistic in setting expectations in advance of the trip. We knew what we could expect; thereby no surprises.”

Egypt and Turkey— Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Top Tours

  • Major UNESCO World Heritage sites: Your Egypt and Turkey tour packages will be filled with amazing heritage sites in both countries. Start your trip with a visit to the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. These 4500 years old, structures still stand as a symbol of Egypt's architectural prowess and cultural heritage. Then travel to Turkey and witness the splendor of Ottoman history on a tour of Topkapi Palace. Conclude your trip at Goreme National Park's fairy-tale-like landscapes and rock-cut churches.
  • Major architectural features: See the masterpiece of Byzantine architecture in Turkey, the Hagia Sophia. This structure was transformed from a mosque to a museum and showcased remarkable artistic fusion. Book a flight from Turkey to Egypt and gaze at incredible limestone statues at the Great Sphinx. Then head to Luxor Temple and take in the incredible Egyptian architecture featuring grand columns and hieroglyphics.
  • Culinary specialties: With Egypt and Turkey being so close to each other, they offer an incredible blend of cultures that can be found even in their cuisine. Try Koshari (a blend of rice, lentils and sauces), a staple of Egyptian street food. When you are in Turkey, you have to try Doner kebabs and Baklava (a traditional nuts and syrup dessert).

Traveling between Egypt Vs Turkey: An Overview

The quickest way to travel from Egypt to Turkey is via flight and it takes about 2 hours.

Getting from Egypt and Turkey

If you are starting your trip in Egypt, direct flights connect the US and the UK to Cairo. From Cairo, you can fly to Luxor for a Nile cruise and continue sailing to Aswan. Then fly back to Cairo to catch a flight to Istanbul, Turkey, for the second leg of your tour. Turkey can be explored by a combination of flights, bus or train travel. Your escorted tour of Egypt and Turkey ends in Istanbul.

You can also do the Turkey leg of the trip first and fly from Istanbul to Cairo. You can also take a passenger ferry from Limassol (Cyprus) to Port Said in northeastern Egypt. The ferry service operates roughly from May to October, but it is not always reliable. You can also fly to Israel and enter Egypt by road at the Taba crossing. Alternatively, you can catch a flight from Istanbul to Jordan and take a long bus ride (nearly 24 hours) from Amman to Cairo. Ferry options from the Jordanian port city of Aqaba to Sinai are also available, but delays are frequent.

Best Time to Visit Egypt and Turkey

The best time to go on Egypt and Turkey tours depends on what you want to get from your vacation. If you don’t mind the hot weather in Egypt, you can visit both countries from June to September. However, we recommend visiting Egypt and Turkey in May or October if you wish to avoid the heat and get good deals on flights and accommodation.

Egypt and Turkey Travel Tips

  • In both Egypt and Turkey, you should be prepared to haggle at markets. Price negotiation for goods and services is quite common in both countries.
  • In Egypt, travelers should dress conservatively when visiting rural locations and religious sites. For instance, women would want to cover their shoulders and knees. Men should not wear flip-flops and shorts when exploring temples.
  • Do not drink tap water in Egypt. You can use tap water to brush your teeth and shower but not drinking. We recommend that you buy bottled water for drinking.
  • In Turkey, you should always carry cash with you, as ATM centers are not available in small rural towns and even at markets in Istanbul.
