If you are looking to combine a love of travel and history, there are few places you can head to that are better than Egypt.
Nearly every tour operator provides some sort of ‘antiquity tour’ around this ancient part of the world. There is so much to see in this part of the world that you will certainly struggle to fit it all into one holiday and you may find yourself coming back a year later to visit the bits you missed.
However, one of the best ways to make sure you see the best of what is on offer is pay a little extra for an escorted tour of Egypt that many tour operators provide. By having a tour guide you can guarantee that you will get to see all the things you want to and that you won’t miss out on the world famous sites.
Any good escorted tour should at least include the Nile River and the Pyramids along with other nearby ancient temples, tombs and museums. Depending on how long your holiday is you may be able to visit some of the lesser known sites and get off the beaten track a little. One thing you need to be absolutely sure is on your itinerary is the Giza Plateau, home to the great pyramids. After all, these are probably one of the most famous and instantly recognisable man-made structures in the entire world.
Sticking with the Pyramid theme, once you have finished taking in the spectacular sites to be had at the Giza Plateau you should definitely head to Saggara and get on a tour of the Step Pyramid Complex of Djoser. The cultural significance of the Step Pyramid cannot be overstated in this part of the world as it was the first Pyramid built in classical Egypt and is referred to as the ‘grandfather of them all’!
If this glimpse into what can be found in Egypt makes you keen to visit some ancient historical sites, then you should look for a holiday that offers tours of these locations. Bales Worldwide offer escorted tours of Egypt that include the Pyramids and other incredibly popular tourist spots such as the Nile and Cairo. We certainly recommend you look for an operator like this that has been running tours in this part of the world for many a year so you can guarantee a thorough visit to this amazing part of the world.
