Delve Deep: Egypt

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

(Previously called: Egypt Express) TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader. The pyramids, the Sphinx, the Nile... they’re all here. But where are you? You’ve seen them in books. You’ve seen them in documentaries. You’ve seen them in movie after movie after movie. But experiencing them in real life = a whole different level of AMAZING. Ancient, archaeological and wall-to-wall ICONIC, this sure as hell isn’t your average holiday. But then – you’re not your average traveller.

Worth noting…
Psst! All our Egyptian Topdeck Trip Leaders are qualified Egyptologists. Meaning? You’re gonna have more fact-filled days than you can poke a mummified finger at. This trip includes an overnight stay aboard a traditional felucca sailing boat – don’t forget to pack a sleeping bag. Sweet!

    This is your chance to delve deeper, to explore more. To experience a new and exotic destination to the absolute fullest. Ladies and gents – welcome to Egypt. Spot your Topdeck Rep at the airport (hint: they’re holding a placard with your name on it). Then: dump your stuff at the hotel and meet your fellow explorers by the pool. Tonight, we’ll dig into our first included group dinner at a local restaurant. Time to talk tombs, swap pharaoh facts, and discover how many times everyone’s watched The Mummy.
