Going inside the Great Pyramid at Giza, Cairo was a childhood bucket list item, but the hot air balloon trip from Luxor over the Valley of the Kings, Karnak & Luxor temples was fantastic! The sights and sounds of 20 odd hot air balloons being inflated at dawn all around us is a memory that will stay forever. Read full review

Being guided around the ancient monuments of Egypt by knowledgeable guides bringing the past alive. Too many highlights but the colours in the tombs.... From 4500 years ago. 5 stars.
