Special Heritage

Ancient Kingdoms Holidays most popular choice: Many of these hotels are graded as 5-star locally, but rated by Ancient Kingdoms Holidays as superb first class hotels.  You'll find more than expected in our carefully chosen locations.  In large cities such as Cairo we feature two different locations, the Pyramids and downtown to maximise your time for sightseeing.


We carefully check out more economical hotels, to ensure that they are a true 3 star standard and where ever possible in prime locations.  A great choice if your budget is limited, while your tours still meet our high standards.


Clean and simple and often rated as 3 star locally.  Ideal for the cost conscious traveller and carefully selected by Ancient Kingdoms Holidays.  Generally only available on flexi holidays or when you design your own itinerary.


Tours including special category hotels are designed to capture the essence of the destination.  These hotels reflect regional architecture, history and culture, generally located in the historic heart of an area.  Whilst not always having all the amenities of modern hotels, the character, service & charm make these properties and this touring option even more special.
