Egypt might be well and truly on the tourist trail, but there is also a whole other unseen side that we present to you as part of our Alternative Egypt Tour.
We’ll be exploring the City of the Dead – an impressive neighbourhood composed of old buildings which have been now occupied by the poorer classes of the country. A frenetic hustle and bustle amongst ruins. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the Garbage City – a slum neighbourhood of the capital literally overrun by trash, an easily overlooked side of our urban, globalised planet.
Obviously a trip to Egypt cannot be complete without visiting any pyramids, so allow us to take you way off the tourist path and explore the rarely seen Bent Pyramid, Red Pyramid and the Pyramid of Djoser. Each with their own unique history and designs.
We’ll spend overnight at a Bedouin camp to give you enough time to explore the White Desert of Egypt. An incredible scenery with a landscape made of white chalk rock formations.
This is currently a standalone tour, with us working on a Jordan tour directly after.
