Why go? The dry heat (around 25°C) and cloudless skies make Egypt a popular winter sun destination. In Luxor you can expect up to 10 hours of sunshine a day. A tour to the Great Pyramids or the Valley of the Kings will bring school lessons alive. Kids and adults both will love running and rolling down sand dunes and exploring the insides of pyramids until their hearts desires. Then why not end the day with a trip down the Nile and meeting some baby camels? Couldn't imagine anything better.
Top tip: Choose well-paced, small-group tours that are specially designed for families.
Flying time: 5.5 hours.
