Egypt Unveiled: A Journey of Wonders and Delights
Join us on as we share Rowena‘s recent journey to Egypt where she and a lovely group of travellers embarked on an adventure that left them in awe at every turn. The sights they encountered were nothing short of amazing, and their daily exclamation was a resounding “WOW!”
The Grand Egyptian Museum and Beyond
Our adventure began at the Grand Egyptian Museum (The GEM), even though it was only partially open at the time. Still, its grandeur was spectacular. Little did we know that this was just the beginning. The wonders of the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx left us thrilled, and this was only day one!
Camel Rides and High Perspectives
To get an even better view, we took to camel-back and found ourselves soaring, in more ways than one. The true scale of the pyramids is only fully understood when you’re right in front of them, whether on foot or high atop a camel. It was a breathtaking experience, quite literally.
Luxurious Mornings at Sofitel, Cairo
Each morning at Sofitel, we awoke to an indulgent gourmet breakfast spread at the luxurious hotel in Cairo. It was the perfect way to start our day, with a touch of French influence that made our taste buds dance. The flaky croissants were nothing short of heavenly.
A Nile River Cruise to Remember
Our journey continued with a fabulous cruise aboard the Sonesta Moon Goddess, gliding down the storied Nile River to Luxor and Aswan. The attentive staff catered to our every need, providing us with exceptional food, drinks, and creature comforts that exceeded our expectations.
A Delightful Felucca Ride
One of the highlights of our trip was a felucca ride around beautiful Kitchener’s Island, the former home of the Agha Khan. Accompanied by Nubian sailors who sang their local folk songs and danced with us, it was a truly special afternoon, filled with cultural immersion and connection.
Exploring Hidden Treasures
Our journey took us off the beaten track to places like Sakkara, Dahshur, Karnak, and Kom Ombo, where we discovered the hidden treasures of historic pyramids and temples. The significance of these sites came to life through the unparalleled knowledge and storytelling skills of our personal Egyptologist. With a Master’s degree in Egyptology, 27 years of tour guide experience, and a pending PhD, our guide transformed this trip into “The Trip of a Lifetime” for each and every traveler.
Egypt revealed its wonders and delights in ways we could have never imagined, leaving us with memories that will last a lifetime.
