Book your holiday to Egypt with Wendy Wu Tours
Tracing its history back to the time of the ancient Pharaohs, Egypt is the home to the epic pyramids, intricate hieroglyphics, mysterious mummies and the majestic River Nile. But look closer, and you will find a history laced with ingenious inventions; the 365-day calendar and paper and pen from the reeds that grew beside the river to name a few.
The saying ‘Egypt is the gift of the Nile’ still rings true today, with the mighty river a great way to discover the beauty of the landscapes from the waters that run through the length of the country. Take a leisurely cruise and admire the awe-inspiring monuments studding the banks of the river where one of the oldest civilisations in the world first began.
Egypt is split into 4 regions: the Nile Valley, the Western Desert, the Eastern Desert, and Sinai Peninsula. Each region has its own individualities and customs worth showcasing.
The Valley of the Kings gives an insight into Ancient Egyptian burial practices, and, as Egypt is the melting pot of different religions and cultures, the many temples, mosques and monasteries dedicated to respective gods are a must-see when visiting this diverse and exotic land.
Egypt offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences. What better way to explore them than on a Wendy Wu tour?
