Our tour guide will meet you at your hotel and accompany you by A\C car to visit Great Pyramids & Sphinx one of the seven wonders of the ancient world they are great monument of a great civilization that was born seven thousand years ago. The largest one in Egypt is the one built for King Khufu in Giza. Khufu’s pyramid known as the great pyramid, is the only one of the seven as wonders of the world that still exists. Egyptian pyramids were originally built to serve as tombs for kings and queens, then visit Sakkara more ancient site than that of Giza contains tombs and temples Sakkara was the principal necropolis for the ancient city of Memphis, visit Dahshur there you will see the Red Pyramid Located in South Saqqara stand the pyramids of Dahshur . The Red Pyramid and the Bent Pyramid are about 2 km south of the Mastaba Faraoun. The constructor of these pyramids is thought to have been Snofru (2575 – 2551 BC), who was the first ruler of the 4th Dynasty. Snofru built these two pyramids and is thought to have built the pyramid at Maidoun. His son was Cheops who continued his constructive tendencies & The  Bent Pyramid is unique for two reasons. The first is the angle change. There are two theories for this change. The first is that the builders may have gotten tired and wanted to reduce the volume and to finish faster. Another is that when the pyramid at Maidoun collapsed, the architect lost his nerve and changed the angle. The angle at Maidoun was 52 degrees as is the base of the Bent Pyramid. At the bend, the angle is changed to 43.5 degrees up to the peak ; finally you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Cairo here we come.


I`m one happy bunny right now. For the first time I have all my bookings in order well nearly all of them. So Cairo here we come. April 1 to April 6. Will definitely enjoy my birthday in Cairo.

So I have booked and paid for our flights and hotels. Yep Hotels I always want to stay at two different hotels in different locations.

Hotel 1 is Sheraton in Giza and very affordable. I just hope I won`t hate it especially since we are staying for 3nights. It’s near the pyramids. Hotel 2 is Intercontinental City Stars in Cairo. Not so affordable and booked a suite. Well a studio suite. Not sure what to expect since I have never stayed in one. My issue is that it was less expensive than booking in a normal room wierd really so I`m quite worrisome. the good thing its a flexible rate. If I don’t like it we can ask to change rooms. This hotel is close to a mall one huge mall city stars. I know people are not supposed to shop while on holidays but this is the only chance I get to shop. I will find everything I need under one umbrella. I will talk about The Palms one day and you will understand why i always schedule a shopping event in our trips.

I have two schedules need to go over them with DH and then will post the one we are going to do.

Kisses my loves
