MIND – History & Culture in Egypt

Let history come to life as the Egyptologist guides travellers around Cairo, uncovering the history of the Pyramids and Sphinx, stunning mosques and the famous Egyptian Museum. Then visit the island temple of Philae and the huge High Dam before stepping on board a traditional Felucca sailboat that meanders down the Nile. After spending two nights on board, head to dry land to explore Luxor and its markets, the Valley of the Kings and end the trip back in Cairo.
