Tuna El Gabal

It's an ancient archeological site that was used as the burial tombs of the ancient city of Hermopolis. Tuna El Gabal also served as the worship center of the god Thoth, the deity of wisdom, and the most renowned tomb you will visit in the necropolis is the tomb of Petosiris, one of the gods Thoth's loyal priests.

At the end of the day, we will drive you to 4* hotel to check-in and overnight.

Beni Hassan Tombs

It's one of the most impressive burial sites. Date back to the reign of the Middle Kingdom of Egypt, the tombs of Beni Hassan had been used as a resting place for the governors of El Minya during the ruling time of the 11th and 12th dynasty and unlike most of the burials built in Ancient Egypt, Beni Hassan tombs were founded on the east bank of the Nile.

Let's have lunch at a local restaurant then head to visit:

Tel Al Amarna - Egypt Tours Portal

Tel Al Amarna

It's one of the hidden treasures of the Nile Valley that was founded by Pharaoh Akhenaton in 1363 BC to his new capital after he decided to change Egypt's worship system and unified all the Egyptians' gods into one god, Aten, the god of the sun.

Finally, we will transfer you back to your hotel in Cairo by your A/C vehicle
