Giza Pyramids and Sphinx
It is the one and only wonder which does not require a description by early historians and poets. It also does not need speculations concerning its appearance, size, and shape. It is the oldest, yet it is the only survivor of the Seven Ancient Wonders. It is the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The great pyramid is believed to have been built over a 20 year period. The site was first prepared and then blocks of stone were transported and placed. One theory on how the pyramid was built involves the construction of a straight or spiral ramp that was raised as the building proceeded. This ramp, coated with mud and water, eased the displacement of the blocks which were pushed (or pulled) into place. A second theory suggests that the blocks were placed using long levers with a short angled foot.

Private Cruise ship Shore excursions: Egypt, Greece & Turkey
The cruise regular shore excursion are generally a good introduction to the city. Most of the seasoned cruise travelers prefer to go sightseeing with a private guide.

The difference between ship organized and private tours is best described as "package versus tailor-made." Some people may feel all right joining a large tour group whereas sometimes it is difficult to hear the guide and the group moves only as fast as its slowest participant.

Others may not get their questions answered at all as there may be twenty other people in the group trying to do the same.

In contrast, a small tour group with a tailor-made program is way more enjoyable and ensures personal attention for everyone. You will spend as much time as you want.

Therefore, if you want to maximize your limited time, the private escorted tour tailored to your unique wishes and interests is an ideal solution.

All our private shore excursions tours are carefully designed to give you the best possible experience. Our knowledgeable, friendly and qualified tour guide and driver will ensure that your visit ashore is truly memorable. When you tour with us in Turkey as part of a private shore excursion, your tour guide will get you into sites without waiting in lines that is especially valuable given the limited time you have to spend in Turkey, Greece or Egypt.

Visit Giza and see the Sphinx
Royal Gringo Tourists (Photo Credit: Alan aka "The Mighty Ra")

Just being on the Nile, the home of the oldest Western civilization (the Chinese always argue their's is older and since as a nation we are currently in hock to them, I thought I'd show some respect) and seeing and being in man made places that are 2500 years older than the grandeur that was Rome, is very special. The building of the Parthenon occurred midway between building the Great Pyramid of Khufu and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, so that gives a unique perspective on the time line.

I had done my homework so I got a lot out of it. As a result I wasn't being numbed by the history of 20+ Dynasties, but able to go to the next level. ...

So we got to see a lot and do a lot. The food was typical middle east--lots of grilled meats and fish, yogurt, hummus and fruit. Pleasant enough, but not a cuisine destination. I am a bird watcher, so I did get a few new ones and enjoyed going out at dawn before Egypt woke up.
