the capital of Egypt, has been described as the city with a thousand
minarets. This city - the crossroads of the ancient world - is where
old and modern meet in a seething populace that makes Cairo the original
city that never sleeps.
Cairo you will be able to visit the Pyramids of Giza - The Great Pyramid
of Khufu, the Pyramids of Khafra and Menkaura, the Giza Necropolis and
the Majestic Sphinx with its unwavering gaze towards the sunrises of
the last four and a half thousand years.
Egyptian Museum at Cairo is a must, even if you only see Tutankhamen's
treasure. Then see history brought to life at the Pharaonic
Village, where actors perform scenes from everyday life in setting provided
by reproductions of ancient monuments, buildings and tombs.
Pyramid Complex of Djoser is just a short journey away at Sakkara and
you can see some of the earliest buildings ever constructed from stone,
including the Stepped Pyramid designed by the famous architect - Imhotep.
- The City of a Hundred Gates - was the ancient capital of Egypt during

tombs were prepared to ensure their immortality in the afterlife.

III, and choose from a whole host of other tombs, temples and sites
of antiquities to satisfy your quest for adventure and history.

you can relax as you watch life go by, virtually unchanged since Pharaonic
times. No visit to Luxor would be complete, however, without a hot-air
balloon ride at dawn over the Great Theban Necropolis.

Or, if relaxing by the beach is your idea of a holiday then you can

as you gaze in wonder from a glass bottomed boat.
the young and the young at heart, you can party the night away in one
of the many clubs and night spots that line the main thoroughfares or
enjoy a quiet drink in a beach-front bar and watch the moon rise over
the Red Sea.
