Feature Stories

When visiting Egypt, or any country for that matter, the first thing anyone does in planning their trip is research. The research phase involves looking into the history, culture, and food; looking at photos of places of interest; and reading about previous visitors experiences in the country. Tour Egypt has collected this information and put it all in one place. For nearly 15 years now, Tour Egypt has dedicated itself to bringing our readers the most detailed information about Egypt and everything related to its history and culture. While part of this has undoubtedly been many historical, fact-based articles, another major part of this is definitely our feature stories.

Desert Adventures in Egypt

What makes feature stories so special is the fact that our staff hasnt just researched the places theyve written abouttheyve actually visited these locations and taken a walk in your shoes: the visitor. Since its quite helpful to read about other peoples experiences in order to decide if this destination is right for you, weve visited countless monuments throughout the years, cities, hotels, and restaurants, and have compiled a vast collection of stories based on our experiences. Covering the gamut from sand to sea, from ancient to modern, from religious to secular, our more than 2,000 feature stories truly give the feeling that youre living the adventure yourself with details such as directions, dress codes, and activities all included. Weve tried everything from desert safaris, diving and snorkeling in the Red Sea, camping under the stars in the Western Desert, sand boarding some of the incredibly picturesque sand dunes, to visiting every major museum and Pharaonic site on all ends of Egypt.
