SHORE EXCURSION TO EGYPT: CAIRO/PYRAMIDS/RIVER NILE
From Port-Said we drive through the cultivated desert to Cairo -
home to 18 million people and the largest city of the African continent. Our
first stop is the Giza Plateau and the only remaining Wonder of the Ancient
World, the Great Pyramids of Giza. We continue down the valley to visit the
guardian of this mortuary complex, the mighty Sphinx. Watching the passage of
time and men in centuries of silence, its enigmatic expression is a mystery yet
to be unravelled. Our next stop is at Papyrus Institute where the science of
paper-making of reeds, an art first discovered by the ancient Egyptians, is
demonstrated. We continue downtown to the Banks of the River Nile where a
luxurious cruise boat awaits to sail down the same timeless waterway traversed
by Pharaohs, Queens and Nobles thousands of years ago. Sit back, relax and enjoy
a sumptuous buffet lunch in elaborate interiors as we glide past Cairo's
waterfront landmarks. For our entertainment, a folkloric presentation and belly
dancing will be performed during lunch. (included in price) Our last stop is at Tahrir (Liberty)
Square, the heart of downtown Cairo. We visit the National Archaeological Museum
and acquaint ourselves with Egypt's ancient history, spanning a period of over
50 centuries! The Museum is the repository of the world's largest and richest
collection of Egyptian Antiquities, amongst them the priceless collection of
King Tut-Ank-Hamon. Return to Port Said at the conclusion of your visit.
Then we sail back to Limassol and after another night on board,
we arrive at around 11.00 a.m. the next day.
All coaches have toilette and bar facilities on board.
