Our country holds one of the oldest and most amazing Wonders of the World - the ancient pyramids of Giza and it one of the Wonders that is still mostly intact. They form a gorgeous backdrop for incentives and events.
Egypt holds many more treasures, the sand covered tombs, filled to the brim with treasures of the pharaohs who departed from this world. The treasures have long been looted or displayed in museums around the world, but who knows, you might stumble yourself over a stone in the Valley of the Kings and unearth a new archeological find, Egypt is filled with them.
Landscapes in Egypt lend itself very well to adventures in the desert, river cruises on the long river Nile - an Agatha Christie setting,snorkeling and diving in the Red Sea where the desert meets the ocean, white sand beaches, and Mount Sinai, where Moses received the Ten Commandments.
We would be delighted to put together a wonderful program of Egypt for you and your clients.

Cairo has probably never been described as dull, it is worth spending more than just a couple of days. There is a lot to see in Cairo. You can enjoy the numerous historic buildings of the city's many rulers - Arab, Roman, Greek, Turkish, British, French - spanning over five millennia. And of course there are the Pyramids and the Sphinx in Giza.
It is the city where past and present meet, on its east side stands the evidence of 2000 years of Islamic, Christian Coptic, and Jewish culture still flourishing to this day. On its west side lays the Ancient Egyptian city of Memphis Giza, the renowned capital of the Old Kingdom and the site of the Pyramids, the only wonder surviving of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Luxor temple in Luxor
In the middle of the city of Luxor you find Luxor temple. Although maybe the most excavated temple in the world, just by chance some few years ago it was here found several statues that had been placed under earth in Pharaonic times.
