Egypt Heritage-History Tour

Egypt is a land of mystery and intrigue. For hundreds of years, the pyramids have awed visitors with their size and the history attached to them – never mind the hundreds of other historical landmarks to take in along the way. In a land that’s been shaped by Greeks, Persians, Romans, Arabs, and Europeans, you can bet that Egypt’s history is complicated and fascinating. To experience it all, an Egypt heritage-history tour will take you sightseeing while walking you through the country’s past.

Cairo tends to be the main stop for many visitors, especially those who want to see the Great Pyramids. Cairo lies along the River Nile, and the people who live there call their city the “Mother of All Cities.” It’s the largest city in Middle East and Africa, after all. From here, Giza Plateau is easily reached on the west bank of the Nile. The Egyptian Museum is definitely a “must visit” highlight as well; it showcases over 6,000 years of Egyptian history.

Other pyramids worth visiting in Egypt include the Pyramids of Cheops, Chefren, and Mykerionos. From here, it’s possible to see the great Sphinx, which guards the Royal Burial Chambers and Temple of Cheops.

Alexandria, the “Pearl of the Mediterranean,” is another great city to visit on your Egypt heritage-history tour. Founded by Alexander the Great, Alexandria has been a beacon of culture characterized by Pharaohs. You can see the lighthouse that was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was also the relationship setting for the tangled love affair between Mark Antony and Cleopatra. In the ancient world, Alexandria was the centre for learning, and so here you’ll find the Citadel of Qaitbay, the Library of Alexandria, Montazah Palace, and the Catacomb of Kom el-Shokafa.

Egypt Heritage-History Tour Continued...

In Luxor, you’ll find a pleasant blend of mixed culture. The food here is an indicator of Luxor’s multicultural background: the local cuisine has a little taste of everything, and you could spend a great deal of time here exploring your tastes. But the real draw to Luxor is the fact that it was once the ancient city of Thebes, the great capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom. Your local guide will be able to give you an in-depth account of the role Luxor once played in the ancient world, where it was known as the “city of the scepter.”

Once you’re done exploring all the most famous sites, get out on a desert safari where a guide trained in Egyptology will show you more historical monuments while explaining the desert lifestyle.
