Egypt is home to one of the world's most awe-inspiring remnants of ancient civilization. Dating back to 5,000 B.C., it boasts of a comprehensive collection of artifacts and monuments on the planet.
A Getaway Goddess trip to Egypt is incomplete without a visit to the Pyramids of Giza, the enigmatic Sphinx, monuments of Luxor and granite statues in Aswan. And of course a cruise down the ancient Nile river.
If you are a lover of history and culture, then a visit to see the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt is an absolute must!

Hi, I am mukta Rastogi, and I have just got back from an amazing trip to Egypt. This tour was completely organised by tasneem rangwala. She customised my tour, did the arrangements according to my wishes and gave me a very good deal too. I was happy with her involment and execution of the trip. During the tour too, she was constantly in touch with me, and she also upgraded my room in cairo when I told her that I was not happy with the current room. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciate tasneem for all her efforts to make my trip memorable and fantastic in all ways possible. Kudos to her and her team. I have already started recommending her to my family and friends and wish her lots of success in her work and vision.
Another beautiful thing I adored was that she is always smiling and friendly even if I called her 10 times in a day... That's so welcoming and sweet of her to make us feel comfortable. All she says is " just go and have a wonderful and fun trip" .... That's what we did.... Thanks again tasneem. Love you and looking to have many more fun trips ....
It was a wonderfully planned trip, especially for me - since I traveled solo.
A very well arranged service right from the beginning, be it in Rome, Florence or Venice. Nothing was left for me to worry for, with all the well planned service.
Trip to Venice is the highlight of the trip - fun packed days!
Loved every second of my trip:)
Thanks to Cox and Kings for making my Solo Travel hassle free.

Getaway Goddess holiday to Sri Lanka was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. From the moment we landed and started on our private tour of the island - seeing Dambulla Caves; driving through Kandy and into the Highlands through tea plantation estates at Nuwara Eliya; an early morning safari at Yela National Park; to the beach at Bentota - it ticked every box for us. Guide would always waiting for us and gave an extra insight into the activities we undertook. On the ground arrangements and accommodation could not be any better than this. Namrata took the trouble to listen to our requirements and put together a first class itinerary which worked really well for us. A well organised and wonderful holiday with full of memories.
Once again big thanks to Cox and Kings team for creating memories which will last forever.
