Description

Join us for an excursion to Cairo, “walking in the footsteps of the Pharaohs” (lunch included; approx. 10 hours total, incl. 4 hours round trip). The Giza pyramid complex is home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the “Great Pyramid of Giza” (137m) whose peak is still covered in the original white "casing stones” made of highly polished white limestone, its neighbors, the Pyramid of Khafra and the Pyramid of Menkaure (exterior views only). Not far from this jewel of symmetry, the Sphinx stands guard, arousing the admiration of passersby. Abou al-Hôl, literally the “Father of Terror” in Arabic, was called Sphinx by the Greeks because he resembled the mythical winged monster, who, according to legend, guarded the Greek city of Thebes, asking a riddle to travelers seeking entry into the city, and killing those who were unable to answer. It is thought to represent the Pharaoh Khafra. We’ll then continue on to visit the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo, one of the highlights of the day—housing, among other things, the Treasure of Tutankhamun.
