Itinerary

After breakfast at your hotel in Cairo, start the trip to the valley of the whales. On the route, we stop first by Lake Qaroon where the famous Auberge still stands which was once the rest house of king Farook 1936. Proceed to Wadi ElRayyan with stops in El Mudawara mountain (the magnificent spot overlooks the beautiful landscape below where deep blue waters meet the golden yellow sands). Continue to the valley of Rayyan protectorate area where there is so much to see (the two lakes, waterfalls, natural life, birds, . . . etc). The most memorable is the spectacular scenery of Wadi El-Rayyan, the contrast between the blue waters of the lakes and the golden desert land. Continue our trip to Wadi El-Hitan which is one of the UNESCO sites classified as a world's heritage site. Visit the Hitan museum, see the fossilized whales 35 to 200 million years old, fossilized Mangrove, . . . and much more. The site used to be part of the ocean millions of years ago.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was one of our most memorable trip. All the credit goes to Nahla, she is an excellent guide and very passionate about her work. She delivers to her promise and leaves no room for dissatisfaction. The transport she provided was always punctual, clean and new. She has a good grip on the Egyptian history, monuments & artifacts. Nahal has good contacts in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan and can arrange for very nice accommodation in good hotels at very reasonable price. She provided us good rooms in Luxor.
