What To Expect

Wadi El-Rayan
Meet your guide at your Cairo hotel, and watch the city give way to orchards and green fields on the trip to Lake Qarun in a private, air-conditioned vehicle. Spot some of the stunning birds that thrive at the edge of this salty lake, from black-necked grebes to ibis and flamingos.

Continue to the local museum to see stunning examples of Fayoum’s mummy portraits, cloth panel paintings with distinctive Greco-Roman influence. Learn about local history and culture while exploring the museum with your guide, and don’t miss the remarkable collection of statues from regional archeological sites.

Visit a local restaurant for an Egyptian-style lunch before heading to Wadi El-Rayan, to see the manmade waterfalls in the middle of the desert.

Then take a scenic trip on a felucca, a wooden sailing boat with an elegant, gaff-rigged sail.

Our tour guide Abdullah gomma was fantastic. Unlike some other tour guides didn’t take us to shops. Very cool and helpful.
A worthwhile venture

Fayoum is the hidden jewel of Egypt. In this tour they showed it with all of Fayoum’s highlights. Some of the best things of the city are remote from the center. However, the tour not only covered these places, but also went around to others and even stopped by my hotel there so that I could stay a few more days (The tour can finish in Cairo or Fayoum so choose one that you prefer). They are very generous, friendly and put great effort into their tours. A thousand thanks to them.
