Day by Day Itinerary

Explore the oasis of Fayoum, which is located 48 miles (80 kilometers) south of Cairo. The visitors, who choose to go for this private day tour, will have a very different feeling away from the capital. You will enjoy the agricultural landscape of vegetation. Rural life is one of the pleasant experiences of Al Fayoum. Your first destination will be Lake Moris as the Greeks called it but Arabs call it Lake Qarun. The Lake is an expansive one. It is not a big swimming spot, but even the sight of the lake on the edge of the desert is refreshing, and you can rent a rowing boat. The lake is now an important bird area where thousands of migratory birds rest during their winter migration pattern south, including large numbers of flamingos. Following this, you will drive the popular waterfalls of Wadi El Rayan. The waterfalls are beautifully connected to the lake; your tour guide will accompany you everywhere to explain all about the places you will visit.
