Tour Summary

Touring Cairo and cruise the nile in style

 

THE PYRAMIDS OF GIZA   The great Pyramids of Choeps, Chepren and Mysterious are the only ones surviving of the seven wonders of the ancient world. They are Egypt’s most visited monuments and among the world's greatest tourist attractions.

THE SPHINX is carved from a single piece of stone. It is a lion with the head of a pharaoh   thought to be the portrait of Chepren. 

CHURCH OF ST.SERGIUS (ABU SERGA) - A 5th century basilica built over crypt where the Holy Family is believed to have stayed during their flight into Egypt. 

 

CHURCH OF ST.MERCURIUS (ABU SEFEIN) - boasts a unique collection of Coptic art including 175 icons that depict scenes from the old and new testaments, wall paintings, etching and stained glass.

 

  BEN EZRA SYNAGOGUE 

 

Modest in appearance, delightful in interior and boasting of legends, the Ben Ezra synagogue is the supreme Jewish monument in Cairo. Legends claim that the synagogue is built on the spot where pharaoh's daughter found Moses in the bulrushes and where Jeremiah spoke to survivors after the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar. The most important recent event is the finding of medieval manuscripts in 1894. The collection, called Geniza, , counted more than 250,000 pages, dating to the period between 1002 and 1266.

  

THE KHAN EL KHALILI   The most famous of oriental bazaars it is a treasure of trove of medieval craftsmanship. Shop to your total hearts content- for the Egyptian artifacts…or order yourself a sheesha, indulge and watch the world go by…both very enjoyable pass times!!
