Egypt Sightseeing

Egypt, a transcontinental country that, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula, spans the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia. It is more than just sand, pyramids, and camels: Egypt is historically rich – its history dates back to the tenth millennium BCE, and, in its earliest days, experienced some of the first developments of writing, agriculture, urbanization and organized religion. It is full of iconic monuments and ruins that attract the top archeologists from all over, and it has a dynamic cultural heritage having assimilated a multitude of foreign influences, including Greek, Persian, Roman, Arab, Ottoman, and European. In other words, it’s one of the world’s top destinations for sightseeing!

Whether you’re interested in prehistoric or ancient Egypt, or simply want to marvel at the size of the country’s renowned pyramids that, interestingly enough, are shaped as a reference to the rays of the sun, and were made to have a polished, highly reflective white limestone surface to give them a shining appearance when viewed from afar, Egyptian sightseeing guides are a must for when you visit the country. Not only do they provide in-depth local knowledge of Egyptian customs, they teach you things about the likes of The Great Pyramid of Giza (one of the Seven Wonders of The Ancient World) that you wound’t learn otherwise.

Sightseeing guides in Egypt will enthusiastically take you to the country’s highlights like the Great Sphinx, the largest monolith statue in the world that depicts a reclining sphinx (a mythical creature with a lion’s body and human’s head), but they’ll also tell you little-known facts about the country, such as that the constellation currently referred to as the Big Dipper, the ancient Egyptians called the Hippopotamus, and that ancient Egyptian women wore perfume not on their skin, but on their head in the form of solid perfume cones.
