Tour Description

Our Cairo and Sinai Desert 3 Day Tour will take you on an epic journey to discover Egypt’s top highlights. You will start your tour in Egypt’s swarming capital, Cairo, one of the largest capital cities in the world. You will be amazed by one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids of Giza, and the equally imposing Sphinx. You’ll explore the ancient relics at the Egyptian Museum, the majestic Nile River, and the stunning Mohammad Ali Castle. You’ll also have a chance to visit Cairo’s colorful markets and experience its animated culture.

 

Our tour will then take you down south to the Sinai peninsula, where quiet and calm are the norm. Here, you’ll explore the ancient Saint Catherine Monastery, which sits at the base of the revered Mount Sinai. The monastery is the oldest running Christian monastery in the world and also the site of the burning bush from the bible. Those who are up for the challenge will even get a chance to welcome the sun with an early morning hike up the mountain.
