An Active Family Getaway for Lasting Memories!

Designed for families with teenagers, this tour offers a personalized itinerary for a stress-free and unforgettable experience.

  • This private tour covers all the destinations for the family's first trip to Egypt: Cairo with Giza Pyramids, Aswan, Luxor, and Hurghada.
  • Your family-friendly guide will not only help you experience the unique culture and stunning historical sights but also ensure you capture the most cherished family memories with the best photos.
