Today all visits are in Wadi El Ryan, designated as Protected Area in 1989. We will start our tour to Wadi Hitan Protected Area (Valley of the Whales), about 90 km far from Fayoum. Wadi Hitan or Valley of the Whales is located in the Protected Area of Wadi El Rayan and it was designated by UNISCO as a world Heritage Site in recognition of the 40 million year –old whale skeletons found there. On the way to Wadi El Rayan Water Falls, visit Mudawara Mountain. Then into Wadi Al Ryan Water Falls. Wadi El Rayan is a natural depression located in the western desert, Wadi Rayan consists of two lakes connected by Egypt’s only waterfalls, formed in 1970 by an overflow of drainage water from the farmlands in Fayoum. Late Lunch will be served at a good quality restaurant. After that transfer back to Cairo.
We felt absolutely safe and secure the whole time; mainly because of our guide and driver. A deep love and friendship developed between us so that we felt we were family; their warmth and consideration for us exceeded our expectations. So much so that even now, we are overwhelmed as we think back to their exceptional care for us. We have fallen in love with Egypt because of them.
Now is a great time to go to Egypt, because there are less of us tourists. There is great opportunity to see the wonderful historical monuments that Egypt has to offer, in a more intimate way, without contending with hoards of people. We had many magical moments where it was just us and our guides; experiences of descending into ancient monolithic pyramids alone, for example that can never be replaced in a life time.
We would highly recommend our guides and Memphis Tours, nothing was too much for them; they catered to our every need; at such a reasonable price too. I have travelled extensively, and been on many tours over the years and I can say wholeheartedly they were the best.
