Architectural Treasures of Ancient Egypt


Come with me on a life-time tour to the most impressive structures of the Pharaohs : the Great Pyramid , the Sphinx and the Step Pyramid. Tick another wonder off your bucket list and see the Great Pyramid - the only wonder of the ancient world still standing. Take a camel across the Sahara Desert and take the best panoramic pictures of ALL the pyramids.

I will show around the enigmatic Sphinx, the man-headed lion guarding the Pyramids since the 3rd millennium BC. We will visit the mysterious Valley Temple where the Egyptian kings were mummified. Here the megalithic blocks weigh more than 400 tons! It's still a mystery how the Egyptians moved them.

I will take you to Saqqara, Egypt's largest necropolis, and show you around the Step Pyramid - the oldest pyramid ever raised by the Pharaohs. We will also visit the Complex of King Zoser - the oldest structure made of stone in ancient Egypt.

We will go around the ruins of Memphis and see the Colossal statue of King Ramses II and the Alabaster Sphinx.

A Recent Review of this tour

Tarek looked after us today so well, his English is extremely good and his cultural and Egyptology knowledge were fantastic. He adjusted the tour schedule at the drop of a hat and kept us fascinated the whole day through. Never quite sure what to expect in Egypt (even though that's half the fun ), but this was altogether an outstanding experience. Highly recommended -we will be back !
