Wonderful day trip
Tim B, 16-09-2022
This was a very interesting and well organised day trip from Cairo. I was picked up early in the morning and travelled north-eastwards to Tanis, a former capital of Ancient Egypt. Although there are no intact buildings, the complex is extensive and has many fascinating obelisks, statues, wells, and graves to explore, a particular plus being that you have the site almost to yourself. The trip also included a visit to the Suez Canal, and a fantastic (optional) lunch at the local fish market. Also amazing is the whole surrounding delta area with lagoons, canals, orchards, villages, and farms, which give an unforgettable insight into rural Egypt. The guide, Mr Waleed, was a fountain of knowledge and was extremely helpful. As was the driver, Mr Bills, who made the trip comfortable and safe. Definitely highly recommended for those who want to experience something different.
