Portland Holidays - now Thomson
You're probably here because you're looking for a Portland Holiday in 2013 - well, Portland Holidays have become part of Thomson Holidays now. In fact, Portland Holidays has been owned by Thomson for several years, but since 2011 the Portland brand has been stopped, and all holidays are now sold through Thomson. All's not lost though - it's still worth having a look at Thomson to see what they can offer you in the way of a good deal.

Egypt - Red Sea

Egypt, a fabled land of ancient wonders, basks under timeless blue skies and almost perpetual sunshine. The Nile is the country's lifeblood and is as important today as it was in the times of the Pharaohs. The river wends its way amongst white-sailed feluccas and modern cruise ships while its dusky banks rise slowly from clear, still waters over historic architecture towards the cloudless horizon.

Food & Wine in Egypt - Red Sea
Egyptian cuisine blends a delicious fusion of Arabic and Mediterranean influences. Falafel - round patties made from ground broad beans or chickpeas - originate from here. Enjoy them in warm pitta bread accompanied by crispy salad and a tangy yoghurt sauce. The national dish is 'fool', a hearty stew made with broad beans, garlic, tomatoes and paprika whilst veal is the most popular meat, along with lamb and pigeon. All of these delicious specialities, as well as international cuisine ranging from Chinese to Italian, can be enjoyed in the lively restaurants of Cairo and Luxor.

Days & Nights in Egypt - Red Sea
Much of the entertainment in Luxor is hotel-based, with dazzling belly-dancing shows, live Egyptian folk music and opulent bars on offer. Outside, in the city streets, you can discover authentic bars exuding real Egyptian charm.

Sights & Sounds in Egypt - Red Sea
Sightseeing: The most spectacular Egyptian ruins are in Luxor, or Thebes as it was known in ancient times. Temples stand tall and proud against the blue backdrop of Egyptian sky with thickets of pillars casting shadows on the arid ground. Visit the impressive Temple of Luxor or the massive Temple of Karnak with its dazzling sound and light shows. Set amid vast desert plains, the intriguing Valleys of the Kings and Queens are home to a host of impressive burial tombs, including that of the famous Tutankhamun.

Sun & Sand in Egypt - Red Sea
Luxor has no beaches, but the River Nile more than compensates and all hotels have pools. The Red Sea Riviera, on the other hand, is renowned for its idyllic swathes of powdery-soft sand, clear waters, superb diving and kaleidoscopic underwater scenery.
