Looking for the ultimate history and culture holiday, combined with some beach and relaxing whilst riding fabulous horses throughout, then this trip is a dream come true! 

We start our holiday in historical Luxor, often called the world’s greatest open-air museum where the number and preservation of the monuments in the Luxor area are unparalleled anywhere else in the world. Our facilities are located on the West Bank. It’s quirky and it’s real Egypt. The horses have a fabulous life. There are several well-maintained boxes, although most live out in huge, lush, green paddocks with mountain views (and who can blame them!). 

After 3 fabulous days in Luxor, we will head to Fort Arabesque Makadi Bay in Hurghada. Located on the Red Sea Riviera and nestled between a desert and a mountain range, Makadi Bay has beautiful, white sand beaches and crystal blue water.
