Ultimate Egypt

Birthdays can be landmark occasions in one’s life, which often sparks feelings of dreams unfulfilled or adventures yet to be had. Well, if a big bucket-list getaway is how you want to celebrate that occasion, you’ll struggle to find a destination more befitting of the word ‘landmark’ than Egypt. Our nine-day tour of this storied land combines the country’s most famous sights with some lesser-known gems. We’ll start in the bustling streets of Cairo and the ancient ruins of Giza, where you can visit the Pyramids, the Sphinx and the brand new Grand Egyptian Museum. From there we’ll trace the Nile south, first by train and then via a luxury river cruiser, which we’ll call home for a few nights. Explore the candlelit remains of Luxor Temple at night, haggle away in busy souks and explore the islands of Aswan by kayaking along the Nile – now that should make some serious damage to your lifelong bucket list.

Blissful Bali

This island paradise is the perfect place to gather your favourite people for some pure escapism. From unique cultural experiences to serene tropical landscapes and world class hospitality, a trip to Bali can mean laid-back retreat and adventurous escape in equal measure. That’s certainly the case on our epic 12-day itinerary. You’ll start by making a traditional Balinese offering and placing it in a sacred temple, before hiking through rice paddies and rural villages, and picnicking amid hidden waterfalls. Our guide will take you to yoga and cooking classes, as well as temples and royal gardens. On day five you’ll have to make sure everyone’s alarms are set early for our sunrise hike to the peak of Mount Batur, but things get more chilled on Gili Trawangan, a tiny island where we’ll spend a few nights at a luxurious beach resort. Lounge by the pool, hit the beach or walk around the entire island – it only takes a few hours – and don’t forget to join our guide as we go snorkelling with sea turtles off the coast of the Gili Islands.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
