EGPYT ITINERARIES

No place on earth brings history to life like Egypt. The only experience that rivals your own discovery of this ancient land is watching your children have their minds

blown by the antiquities and monuments that set the tone for future civilizations.

Global CommUnity’s team in Egypt is amazing, and your experience in this land of Pharaohs and queens will bring invaluable perspective to your whole family.

 

Enjoy a short plane ride from Cairo for a day trip to visit Abu Simbel.  The two temples of Ramses II at Abu Simbel are each fronted by colossal statues up

to 20 meters high, and are famed as the most impressive monuments remaining of Ancient Egypt in modern times. Recently the temples were threatened by the waters of Lake Nasser, and with the help of a UNESCO campaign they were cut into blocks, raised piece by piece, and reassembled in a new position higher up the hillside.
