History’s Masterpiece

Overview

As you explore Egypt and listen to numerous stories dating back to several centuries, you are intrigued and left with more questions than answers! From the majestic Pyramids of Giza guarded fiercely by the Sphinx to the mysterious hieroglyphs at the Karnak Temple in Luxor to the fascinating temples of Abu Simbel, Egypt has an unbelievably rich history.

It is not just history that sets Egypt apart. The longest river in the world, the mighty Nile, cuts across Egypt pumping life into the desert country. There is no better way to explore this spectacular river than to go cruising on a Felucca and watch the sunset and the gaze at the scintillating night sky. As you glide over the river, you realise how crucial the Nile is to Egypt’s evolution and survival.

Back in the cities, life is chaotic as ever with bustling markets and crowded streets. Step into the labyrinthine bazaars of Cairo and explore a world of spices, antiquities and souvenirs. If you ever get tired, there is always a café around the corner brewing fresh coffee.

So, come, step into a land of mysteries and spectacular landscapes. Every experience in Egypt will leave you enriched and overwhelmed.
