Christmas Egyptian Legacy

11 Days / 10 Nights
$1810 USD
If you are looking for a change this Christmas, a swap from the wet and cold weather to a golden, sunny weather... then this trip is for you! Spend your Christmas morning on the beach soaking up the sun while listening to the soothing waves.
There is absolutely nothing that this tour leaves out. I am of course exaggerating yet it truly gives you a big whiff of all that this country puts forth. Come and view the Pyramids, the Sphinx and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Take in the magnificent temple of Abu Simbel (transfer by bus), view the romantic and well preserved Philae Temple in Aswan, the twin temples of Kom Ombo and the Edfu temple, bask in the sunset sun and partake of a Bedouin dinner in Hurghada by the coast and check out the green oasis of Fayoum encircled by the desert. Then head to Wadi El Rayan and behold Lake Qaroun in the midst of the desert and visit Tunis Village which is a potters haven.

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 it's on to the Water Wheels ( said to number 200) dating back to the Ptolemaic era and takes in Lake Qarun or Birket Qarun in Arabic, Moeris in Greek is considered the oldest natural lake in the world. It is a saltwater latke having been a freshwater later in prehistory. Is that not amazing? And so we go on now to Qasr Qaroun, where the ancient town of Dionysias was located and the Temple of Stone still stands. We shall then go on to survey Wadi el Rayan in the western desert, a unique nature protectorate, with its freshwater lakes and stunning dunes made for skidding in a 4x4.
