Egypt Meetup Tour
We learned about Ancient Egypt in school- growing up day dreaming about mummies, pyramids, temples, and the Nile River. The Egypt Meetup Tour is nothing short of everything that younger you could have dreamed.
Dive deep into Egypt’s rich history while your textbooks come alive right in front of you. Enjoy the perfect mix of history, luxury, and culture all while eating the best Egyptian food a girl can ask for. From learning hieroglyphics and sailing the Nile to coming face to face with King Ramses III’s mummy, you will never forget your time in in the magical land of Egypt.

Our accommodation is hand-picked to give you the best combination of comfort, location, and style. These are photos from our collection of favorite hotels and resorts to give you a sense of the accommodation you can expect with us.
Steigenberger Pyramids, Cairo
Pyramid views, a delicious breakfast, and a bar inside make this hotel the perfect escape from the busy city. Plus it is next door to one of our favorite Egyptian restaurants!
El Nakil Hotel, Countryside Luxor
Tucked away in the countryside, you will be greeted by smiling locals and waving kids as you make your way to this little hotel. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable, the grounds are gorgeous, and the food is some of the best we’ve ever had in Egypt.
Gravity Hotel, Sahl Hasheesh
Located right next to the Red Sea, this resort features multiple restaurants, a shisha bar, a dive/snorkel center, a few pools to choose from, a spa, and more. It’s far enough away from busy Hurghada and close enough to jump on a shuttle to explore.

What our travelers say
This tour was epic in every way
“This was my 2nd solo trip with SoFe. I initially went to Bali and because that tour was so good I decided to go to Egypt meetup and I am so happy that I did. This tour was EPIC. I am even planning on going on this same tour again to experience it all over again!” Aihee R. | Egypt & Bali
This trip was everything and more
“I’m 100% going to book another trip, although this one will be hard to beat. This trip was everything and more I could ever ask for. I saw places I only ever saw in photos, experienced “Egyptian Hospitality” first hand, had stereotypes of the middle east shattered, watched the sunrise over the Sahara, swam in the Nile AND the Red Sea, and danced to the sound of Nubian drums on a felucca at sunset on the Nile. How could a girl ever ask for more? This trip was the perfect blend of history and education, culture, great food, bucket list items completed, and topped off with even better company.” Dani B. | Egypt
The Egypt SoFe trip was life-changing.
“The Egypt SoFe trip was life-changing, truly! From our amazing egyptologist guide, Sameh, to the sites and wonders of Egypt, and the amazing women that I got to meet and travel with, it was extraordinary. The experiences shared and the memories made are unparalleled and will hold a place in my heart forever. Thank you SoFe Traveler Network.” Darlyne M. | Egypt
