Commemorating Ramses II and his victory at the battle of Kadesh, the temples are a miracle of engineering as twice a year, the inner sanctuary receives the sunbeams that light up three of the 4 sculptures. This incredible, hard to believe feat will keep the God of Darkness Ptah in obscurity. Back in Aswan, you will board your 5 star cruise ship. The rest of the day is yours.

Good morning. Today we are in for an early start in order to avoid the sultry hot sun of noontime.

Then walk along and feel tiny next to the towering Colossi of Memnon. Lunch will be on board the cruise ship and then the afternoon is yours.

First, we shall enjoy a visit to the ancient ruin of the city of Karanis, known also as Kom Aushim dating back to Greco-Roman times. Then its on to the Water Wheels ( said to number 200) dating back to the Ptolemaic era and take in Lake Qarun or Birket Qarun in Arabic, Moeris in Greek is considered the oldest natural lake in the world.

We wish you well and hope to welcome you back in Egypt for some more of our adventures.
This was one of the best trips that I've ever had in a long time. The agents that put my trip together did a great job with the short time that I stayed in Egypt. The transportation from the airport and throughout the whole trip was great. The hotels and the hospitality was amazing. The tour guides from Lady Egypt were very knowledgable about the subject matter. I would definitely come back to Egypt and use Lady Egypt as my tour guide agency in the future
My family and I spent an amazing two weeks in Egypt over Christmas. Through Lady Egypt Tours, the experience was phenomenal. Our tour guide was the absolute best. I personally learned so much about Egyptian culture, and it all made sense because of our tour guide, Mahmoud Salem. As American tourists in Egypt, we all felt safe at all times. The people of Egypt were very friendly and welcoming. I would totally plan a trip with Lady Egypt again, without them the experience wouldn’t have been as rewarding
Where do I begin? Me and my girlfriend were in the process of getting quotes from several travel agencies to travel Egypt through and we heard so many passionate testimonials about Lady Egypt that we eventually booked with them. We did a 7 day excursion. And we're so glad we did! From the moment we walked into the terminal of Cairo and were received by Khalifa, he assured us to relax and start enjoying the vacation cause everything else was to be taken care of. It may have been lucky but my girlfriend and I were the entirety of the tour group and we had an extremely knowledgeable tour guide at all times while out and about. Fayed and Aboudy could not be more gracious, patient and comforting with their thorough and enthusiastic manner. I want to stress that not ONCE did ever feel anything even remotely close to danger or fear. On the contrary, it felt extra special and intimate to interact with the ancient temples with less tourists around. The Egyptian pound was really weak (19 LE to $1 USD) so things were more affordable. The hotel rooms in Giza, Luxor and the room on the Nile river were all way more luxurious than i ever imagined. The bathrooms had bidets!!! On early days of flying to Aswan or Luxor, we were always escorted at all times, even at odd hours like 4 am, it truly felt like we were VIP. They even made sure we went to the best local food places as well as authentic local establishments (e.g. flower perfumery, papyrus museum, fine stone shop) Other companies were quoting us for so much more and it didn't even include many meals or admission to the numerous temples and tombs we were visiting. The price point from this company, as well as itinerary was by far the best bang for buck value. I could not recommend Lady Egypt more for a true, hassle free, safe Egypt experience. They're extremely professional, comforting and willing to tailor a trip exactly to your liking. Go visit Egypt!!!
Lady Egypt was formed 10 years ago to proudly share the wonders and delights of Egypt, a place we call home.
Since then we've expanded to include Jordan, Turkey, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and, most recently, Oman. Our priority has always been to keep a friendly, hands-on feel that make our customers feel part of the family.
