The Sights – Return economy class flights will drop you amidst the famous sights of ancient Egypt

When someone says “Egypt”, images of ancient tombs, enormous pyramids, Pharaohs and a rich cultural history come to mind – and that is exactly what you’ll get on this 12-day tour of one of the most fascinating countries in** Northeast Africa**.

Witness the magnificence of one of the Seven Wonders of the World with a trip to Cairo’s Great Pyramids. Built around 2500 B.C., the largest pyramid –** Giza – is not only the oldest wonder of the world but it also the only one that has remained largely intact. Nearby, capture the greatness of the **Great Sphinx of Giza. The limestone statue with the body of a lion and the head of a human is a huge 73 metres long from paw to tail and is one of the most visited sights in the country.

Journey to the Valley of the Kings *– the ancient royal burial ground for pharaohs such as *Tutankhamun – and wander through the sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids and towering Pharaonic temples appear in this magical and expansive slice of desert.

On the third day of the tour, hop in the private deluxe motorcoach *and travel to *Alexandria – the second largest city in Egypt and an interesting economic hub. Perched on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria holds a lot of the historical culture of Egypt.

You’ll explore the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages that was accidentally discovered in 1900 when a donkey disappeared through the ground. The Catacombs make up the largest Roman burial site in Egypt and combines the phenomenal architecture of Pharaonic and Greek styles.

Then board the *MS Princess Sarah II cruise ship *for *seven nights *and set out to explore ancient Egypt from a different angle.
