Encompassing some of the world’s most famous monuments, Egypt is rich in ancient treasures and civilisations. Colossal pyramids, temples and mythical creatures cut from stone have been placed across the vast desert landscape. Egyptians celebrated and worshipped ancient deities representing natural forces and phenomena, and appeased them by offering sacrifices and partaking in rituals, controlled by the pharaoh. What we are left with today is a huge variety of artworks and communications depicting the life and times of this great nation. Their history is tangible at the ancient sites as you can enter their tombs, touch their clothes, read their stories etched into stone walls and marvel at the forces that would have been required to erect the massive structures. Snaking through the middle of the country is the lifeblood of Egypt, the Nile River. No trip to Egypt is complete without a relaxing sunset cruise on a Felucca on the Nile.
