This Egypt holiday is unique and fairly busy but doable in a single week. It will allow you enough time to see several of Egypt’s key iconic monuments while still tagging a day at the beach on the end. Classical Egypt tour packages are always more fun with a touch of blue sea water, and more beautiful with the colors of the Egyptian water living organisms.
