Egypt can be a Challenge with Kids, but it Reaps Big Rewards

A trip to Egypt offers unforgettable, world-class experiences. School curricula give at least a nod to the ancients, so the chance to get up close to a pyramid or descend into the tomb of a pharaoh is a fantastic way to make history come alive. Encountering traditional hospitality in an Islamic country is a great way to challenge negative perceptions about the Middle East and offers opportunities to form lifelong friendships across cultural divides. Egypt’s Red Sea coast is particularly well set up for a family beach vacation, with excellent facilities for learning new skills such as snorkeling, diving and windsurfing, while older kids can learn that the desert is not deserted through trips with the Bedouin.
