Highlights

Are you intrigued by 5000 years of Egyptian history?  And yet could not make sense what happened exactly over the 5000 years and would like to know how the ancient Egyptians has shaped our modern world and pouring over history books is not your cup of tea.  If you are like me, then join me on the journey to Egypt, discover and learn ancient Egypt from the local Egyptologist as the tour guide. 

At a glimpse, this is what we will be experiencing:

  • One of the oldest countries in the world with a long history of peace and turbulence.
  • Inventions that influence our modern society.
  • UNESCO world heritage site.
  • Be amazed at how advanced the ancient Egyptians were.
  • Ride an ATV to the desert and swim with the wild Dolphins.
  • Cruise the Nile River, one of the longest river in the world.
  • See the other side of Cairo that is seldom talk about, the Old Cairo.

I have designed this trip to be an immersive experience, as such there will be some interaction learning from the expert and for us to ask as many questions as possible.  If time permits, maybe we can learn how to write and read hieroglyphics.  

We will start our journey with a visit to the Egyptian museum, Egypt's most extensive museum of ancient antiquities.  Seeing the famous Tut Mask and the mummies.
