Egypt

 

 


It is more than five thousand years since Upper and Lower Egypt were united into a single kingdom with its capital at Memphis, and it is hard to appreciate that it was to be more than five hundred years from this time before the great pyramids and the Sphinx were constructed at Giza.

 

Our groups visiting Cairo on a five-day tour visit all these sites together with the step pyramid at Saqqara.  A day is spent exploring old Cairo, and another in Alexandria.

 

Groups on our eight day tour combine Cairo and its nearby antiquities with Luxor, Thebes and Aswan, ancient Egypt's gateway to Africa.
