... the 4 to 5 thousand year old pyramids and sphinx. Our guide, Hesham, studied Egyptology and is hugely knowledgeable about all things Egypt, from the time of the pharoahs through the Greco-Roman period until now. We were extremely privileged to have Hesham all to ourselves for the first 5 days of our tour and we have both learnt so much about ancient Egypt right up until it's current political struggle.
