Welcome to Egypt

Discover the world’s greatest civilizations in this curated expedition of significant historical monuments including The Great Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, a journey to Memphis, Saqqara, Egypt’s largest Archaeological site and burial ground, including the Egypt National Museum to view the treasures of boy king Tutankhamen and his regal tomb and the ultimate Nile Cruise.

The World At Her Feet on this 8 days/ 7 nights tour. Our experience to Egypt is a guaranteed departure and needs just a minimum two women travelling together.
The Pyramids of Giza
One of the last surviving of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Pyramids of Giza are one of the world’s most recognized landmarks. Built as tombs for the mighty Pharaohs, the Pyramids can be viewed from outer space and has awed travelers and archaeologists for centuries.
Believed to represent Pharaoh Khafre, the Great Sphinx is the oldest known monumental sculpture built by ancient Egyptians to mark the reign of this mighty pharaoh. The mythical creature with a lion’s body and a human head stands on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile
Housing the most extensive collection of antiquities, the Egypt Museum was established in the late 19th century under Auguste Mariette and housed in Boulaq. The museum houses approximately 160,000 objects covering 5,000 years of Egypt’s past including the treasures from King Tut’s tombs and collections from the valley of kings.
Temple of Philae
Dedicated to Goddess Isis, the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus, the three characters that dominated Egyptian culture and history. This is believed to be one of the burying places of Osiris and held in high reverence by ancient Egyptians and Nubians
Temple of Horus
The Temple of Horus is one of the best preserved temples in Egypt, dedicated to the falcon god Horus and was built in the Ptolemaic period between 237 and 57 BCE. The inscriptions on its walls provide important information on language, myth and religion during the Greco-Roman period.
Sail the majestic Nile between Luxor and Aswan and discover landmark temples, tombs and ruins along the way. No trip to Egypt is complete without this fascinating journey on one of the world’s most famous and beautiful rivers.
Built over 2000 years ago, The Karnak Temple is dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun, Mut and Khonsu and overshadows many wonders of the modern world. It is the largest religious building ever made and was a place for pilgrimage for ancient Egyptians.
Valley of the Kings
The valley was a royal burial ground for pharaohs such as Tutankhamun, Seti I, and Ramses II, as well as queens, high priests, and other elites of the 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasties.
The sculpture within Hatshepsut’s temple recites the tale of the divine birth of a female pharaoh – the first of its kind. The text and pictorial cycle also tell of an expedition to the Land of Punt, an exotic country on the Red Sea coast
Colossi of Memnon
Located west of the River Nile from the modern city of Luxor, Colossi of Memnon is a monument whose function was to stand guard at the entrance to Amenhotep’s memorial temple
The Catacombs of Egypt
Discovered accidentally in 1900 when a donkey disappeared through the ground, these catacombs are the largest known Roman burial site in Egypt and one of the last major works of construction dedicated to the religion of ancient Egypt. The catacombs consist of three tiers of tombs and chambers cut into bedrock to a depth of 35m.
Visit the palace and extensive gardens in the Montazah district of Alexandria, Egypt. It was built on a low plateau east of central Alexandria overlooking a beach on the Mediterranean Sea
