This expedition will be somewhat different from the usual, as we will explore some less accessible parts of the country.
After arriving in Cairo and transferring to the hotel, our journey to Egypt and its hidden corners begins. We have a welcome dinner planned near the pyramids and the famous Sphinx. Egyptian cuisine is healthy and exceptionally tasty, influenced by Mediterranean, North African, and Middle Eastern flavors.
