The Experiences – Included flights will take you to 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 splendour of one of the Ancient 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 also the only to remain largely intact. Nearby, capture the magnificence 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 sites in the country.
Journey to the Egyptian Museum and allow yourself to be transported back in time as you marvel at a vast collection of Pharaonic antiques – including the golden treasures of Tutankhamun.
On the third day of the tour, hop in the private deluxe motor coach 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 combine the phenomenal architecture of Pharaonic and Greek styles.
