Book your holiday to Egypt with Wendy Wu Tours
Tracing its history back to the time of the ancient Pharaohs, Egypt is the home to the epic pyramids, intricate hieroglyphics, mysterious mummies and the majestic River Nile. But look closer, and you will find a history laced with ingenious inventions; the 365-day calendar and paper and pen from the reeds that grew beside the river to name a few.
The saying ‘Egypt is the gift of the Nile’ still rings true today, with the mighty river a great way to discover the beauty of the landscapes from the waters that run through the length of the country. Take a leisurely cruise and admire the awe-inspiring monuments studding the banks of the river where one of the oldest civilisations in the world first began.
Egypt's most famous attactions are of course the monumental ruins and incredible tombs of the ancient pharoahs and whether you are gazing awe-struck at the huge pyramids, wandering around the vast temple complex of Karnak or marvelling at the vibrant tomb paintings of the Valley of the Kings you will not be disapointed.
In Cairo you have one of the great islamic cities of the world; a fascinating whirl of grand mosques, churches and bazaars, whilst to the north lies Alexandria with its intriguing reminders of its glorious Roman past and the second world war battlefield sites of El-Alemain.
