Egypt
Explore Egypt

Egypt is perhaps the oldest tourist destination in the world!  Long before tourism was thought of as an industry, people were arranging tours to Egypt.  The Sphinx, Pyramids, temples of Karnak and Luxor, Valley of the Kings, and Abu Simbel are each individually some of the most amazing sites in the world!  The culture of Egypt has also been a fascination to the world for millenniums; Egypt is one of the few areas where conquerors tried to become more like the people that they conquered.  This amazing society developed in a country that is over 90% desert, but it was along the banks of the Nile River where one of history’s most amazing cultures lived and thrived.  The Egyptians developed their society and culture to amazing heights in early history.  From the their advanced medical and chemical knowledge, which allowed them to preserve mummies, to the development of papyrus, on which they could easily transfer written messages, to the development of the chariot, which gave them a superior military might, the Egyptians were undoubtedly a highly advanced society! Today, the same sites still produce awe and wonder. Come to Cairo and Giza and marvel at the pyramids, take a relaxing cruise along the Nile River, or visit the Greco-Egyptian city of Alexandria.  If you want a beach resort experience, you can stay at Sharm Al Sheikh at the bottom tip of the Sinai Peninsula.  There are also many other sites in the Sinai or in the western deserts or even Lake Nassar (which has a cruise from Abu Simbel to Aswan).  Egypt is a destination which should not be missed.
