So you’ve been enjoying Bloody Scotland have you? If crime fiction is your favourite, then we’ve got the adventure-of-a-lifetime waiting right here in exciting Egypt!

For crime readers looking to unpick a mystery in a setting reminiscent of the golden age of travel, Egypt is the jewel of the Nile. Alongside Agatha Christie, the queen of crime fiction, many contemporary crime writers have set their bestsellers here.

    Follow the footsteps of Agatha Christie's greatest characters

    Bring the pages to life in front of your eyes

    At Literary Tours in Egypt, we have several tours inspired by the queen of crime fiction – Agatha Christie. Her world-famous murder mystery story, Death on the Nile, is set along the smooth waters of the Nile River. But what happens aboard the river steamer is far from calming…

    The tranquillity of Poirot’s cruise is shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway has been fatally shot. She was young, stylish and beautiful, a girl who had everything – until she lost her life. The Belgian (not French!) detective’s vacation becomes a busman’s holiday as he must solve this gripping whodunnit. 

    Let us turn this story from page to place on our signature Death on the Nile tour. Set during the glamorous 1930s, you can follow the trail of the inimitable Hercule Poirot and investigate your Aswan-based affair. 

    Go back in time and experience the elegance and luxury of Egypt’s grand hotels, where Christie wrote some of her most popular works.

    You too can cruise on the Nile in five-star luxury, though the journey will be much more calming than Poirot’s! 

    This exceptional eight-day tour means you can soak up plenty of local atmosphere and culture, with our specially trained guides. 

    The Death on the Nile tour is just one of several Agatha Christie-inspired tours we have in our library. If you’re looking to unravel more mysteries on your Egyptian journey, why not try our 15-day luxury Agatha Christie Tour? Beyond her classic novel, this adventure encompasses the historical, Death Comes as the End, and another Poirot short story – The Adventure of The Egyptian Tomb.

    Book your tour by January 2023 for travel any time next year and you’ll get a free unique experience that will make your Egypt excursion even better.
