Welcome to Egypt Herodotus the great fifth century BC historian wrote about Egypt that:
“Nowhere are there so many marvellous things, nor in the world besides are to be seen so many things of unspeakable greatness.”
In fact very little have changed since then. The Great Pyramids of Giza, the River Nile, Alexandria, the Sphinx, and Luxor...
Egypt’s scope is glorious!
It's not just the Pharaonic monuments that have drawn travellers to Egypt since long before the birth of Christ - it's the legacy of the Greeks, Romans, and early Christians, and the profusion of art and architecture accumulated from centuries of successive Islamic dynasties.
Today’s Egypt boosts so many great wonders, old and new for travellers and tourists, unequalled in any other destination in the world.

Welcome to Egypt "The Gift of the Nile By Omar Sharif "
5200 years of Egypt History...Briefly!
The regularity of the annual Nile River flood, coupled with semi-isolation provided by deserts to the east and west, allowed for the development of one of the world's great civilizations.
A unified kingdom arose circa 3200 B.C., and a series of dynasties ruled in Egypt for the next three millennia.
The last native dynasty fell to the Persians in 341 B.C., who in turn were replaced by the Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines.
It was the Arabs who introduced Islam and the Arabic language in the 7th century and who ruled for the next six centuries.
A local military caste, the Mamluks took control about 1250 and continued to govern after the conquest of Egypt by the Ottoman Turks in 1517.
Following the completion of the Suez Canal in 1869, Egypt became an important world transportation hub, but also fell heavily into debt.
Ostensibly to protect its investments, Britain seized control of Egypt's government in 1882, but nominal allegiance to the Ottoman Empire continued until 1914.
Partially independent from the UK in 1922, Egypt acquired full sovereignty with the overthrow of the British-backed monarchy in 1952.
The completion of the Aswan High Dam in 1971 and the resultant Lake Nasser have altered the time-honored place of the Nile River in the agriculture and ecology of Egypt.
A rapidly growing population (the largest in the Arab world), limited arable land, and dependence on the Nile all continue to overtax resources and stress society.
The government has struggled to meet the demands of Egypt's growing population through economic reform and massive investment in communications and physical infrastructure.
