Egypt

Egypt is a place that takes you back in time, not only hundreds of years, but thousands, with a vast and rich history. Amongst the earliest civilizations, it was ruled by ancient Egyptian pharaohs, Persians, Greeks and finally by Muslims around 1400 years ago.  Of course, it is most famous for its ancient Egyptian history, the pharaohs, pyramids, hieroglyphics and artefacts and there is plenty of all for everyone to see and be amazed.  

 Egypt has had a large Muslim population since the 7th century and there are many treasured mosques throughout the country, with the most iconic and world famous being the Al-Azhar mosque, which developed into one of the oldest universities in the world.  Additionally, the Grand Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha, widely celebrated as the founder of modern Egypt, built this mosque in memory of his son who died in 1816.  Beyond its fascinating history, Egypt is known for its warm, hospitable people, bustling bazaars and cafés and delicious must-try cuisines that will have you falling in love with it.

The Nubian people have preserved their ancient traditions, their language and are known for their culture, friendliness and hospitality.  Interestingly, crocodiles are an important part of their culture, even homes were once guarded by them, and you’ll find some mummified crocodiles hanging in people’s homes as well as some live ones in cages!

Valley of the Kings

The first woman who ruled Egypt, this temple was used as a monastery in the Christian era that is why it is famous for the name “El Deir Al Bahry”, or the Western Monastery.

Your last stop of the day will be at the gigantic Colossi of Memnon. These two 18 meters high statues are the only remaining items of the temple of Amenhotep III. During the roman era, music was heard coming out of one of the statues that were attributed, by the Greeks to Aga Memnon the Greek Hero.

Luxor

Luxor, located in the south of Egypt, is often referred to as the world’s largest open-air museum due to its vast array of ancient monuments, tombs and temples.  Formerly a capital of the Pharaohs and home to the famed Valley of the Kings tombs, a royal necropolis of the Pharaonic New Kingdom era where, amongst many others, the famous Tutankhamen and Ramses were buried. As you venture inside you can appreciate the elaborate decorations and see the depictions of the afterlife in their tombs.

The Luxor and Karnak Temples are amongst the archaeological highlights of Egypt and the most visited sites after the Pyramids in Giza.  The temples are thousands of years old and were once the most important and largest religious centers in Egypt. The Luxor Museum contains fascinating ancient statues and artifacts found in the temples and will have you captivated by the absolutely amazing ancient Egyptian history.

Old Cairo

Cairo is often referred to as a city of a thousand minarets and it is certainly full of impressive, historic mosques from the time Muslims first conquered Egypt in the 7th century and throughout the various caliphates that ruled over it. Masjid Al-Azhar is an icon of Islam in Egypt, built in the 10th century, for the newly established capital city. Around 900 years later, the Ottomans built the Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha, modeled on the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul.
