Egypt is famous for its ancient civilisation and hosts some of the world’s most ancient and important monuments, including the Pyramids of Giza, the Karnak Temple, the Valley of the Kings and the Great Sphinx of Giza. The city of Luxor contains a particularly large number of ancient artifacts. Egypt is a prime location to see this great heritage from the ancient world, including Pyramids and wonderful temples, but it is also part of the Holy Land, and tours to Christian and other religious monuments are popular. Egypt also offers nature and desert treks, fantastic scuba diving as well as golf, fishing and birding expeditions. Guests may choose to relax on the wondrous Egypt Red Sea or Sinai coasts, take in the high culture of Cairo, or even leisurely float down the Egyptian Nile on a luxurious river boat.
Morocco is an exotic blend of old and new, soaked in sunshine and magic. From her fabulous climate to the warmth of her people, Morocco promises an unforgettable experience. Cradled in the red foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is a riot of colour, culture and magic. An absolute must-see, this magical red-walled city gives you a taste of authentic Morocco. Its rambling old medina is a flurry of excitement, hiding history and incredible restaurants, while the snake charmers, musicians and entertainers of its main square, Djemaa el-Fna, make it intoxicating at night. Agadir provides the perfect, modern contrast. Cool and cosmopolitan, Agadir mixes modern hotels, an almost endless sandy beach and an upmarket flavour. Meknes is a dream made reality. Bab al-Mansour, the main and finest gate in Morocco, leads to the immense mechouar where the moving mausoleum of Moulay Ismaïl stands. The city hosts palaces and monuments of a bygone era.
