Sights Visited on This Tour

Sunniest city of Egypt and a popular touristic stop for many cruises. The local market here is an excellent place to do some shopping and to find Egyptian fresh spices.

Cairo is the sprawling capital city of Egypt, located on the banks of the Nile River, known for its rich history, vibrant culture, and bustling city life.

“Gold” in Arabic, the city’s name was inspired from the golden sands by the Red Sea coast. Dahab offers Oceanside dinners and crystal-clear waters for diving and snorkeling.

Edfu has the most complete and best-preserved temple in Egypt, the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus, which was constructed between 237 BC and 57 BC

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and the only one still remaining to this day. An absolute must see.

Kom Ombo means ‘hill of the gold’ crowned with Temple of Komombo. The temple is unusual as one side is dedicated to the god Haroesis and the other side to Sobek.

A top travel destination in Egypt with a wealth of historic monuments and buildings bringing Egypt’s fabled past to life. Luxor is called the world’s greatest open air museum.

Sakkara is a vast ancient burial ground in Egypt, located about 30 kilometers south of Cairo, and is known for its remarkable collection of pyramids and tombs.

The 42m long obelisk was left unfinished when some cracks appeared, but had this obelisk been completed, it would have been the heaviest, weighing nearly 1100 tons!

Overall, I really enjoyed the tour & found Dahab a really good way to finish off a full on week of sightseeing. Adham – I found him really good in the sense of his knowledge of the temples history etc. As far organisation, I feel he could improve here. I missed the first meeting, if it was not for my friends being there i don’t think i would have been as informed know what was happening with the tours. Ramy was really good balance of informative and getting tours organised for us as well as letting us have our own free time.

Brilliant tour! Adham was very knowledgeable on Egypt culture and history. There were some challenging members of our overall group and i appreciate the way he managed everyone’s different expectations. Dahab was such a highlight – amazing hotel & great way to chill. I would 100% go on a tour with Guide Ramy again. He was brilliant to chat to, super organised and really went above and beyond to make sure everyone got the most from Dahab. THANK YOU!
