Heba

Guided trip
Hello! My name is Heba, I am 35 years old Egyptian, who would love to share with you new adventures. I love to travel and explore the world, and living in Egypt gave me the chance to know most of its hidden gems. That’s why I chose Siwa, one of my Favorite Destinations in the world, it has it all - Desert, Lakes and Springs, amazing nature, Safari Adventure, history, the friendliest and welcoming locals, and much more. 📍 What's the plan? At the beginning, we will spend 2 nights in Cairo, Egypt’s Capital. We will stay in a 5 stars Hotel. The rate is based on double rooms, Half Board. The hotel in Cairo is near the road to Siwa, that’s why I chose it. (it is also 25 minutes away from the pyramids). In Cairo, we will visit one of the World Wonders: The Great Pyramids and the Sphinx. And if we are lucky, The New Grand Egyptian Museum will be opened, so it is a must-visit. We will also go to Cairo Citadel and just get lost in the old streets of Islamic Cairo, and be amazed by the architecture, art, and the food. I am flexible regarding the nights in Cairo; if you visited it before, and you want to spend 1 night only to just take a rest after your flight, (as the road to Siwa is 9 hrs), that’s totally fine, and I will change the fees accordingly. We will move to Siwa very early, and we will arrive around noon. Siwa’s accommodation is an experience itself; we will stay in an amazing Eco Lodge. The rate is also based on double rooms, Half Board. I went to Siwa many times before, so rest assure you are in good hands, but also we will have on board the friendliest and most professional local guide. So be prepared to spend 4 Amazing Days, and expect a once in a lifetime adventure. Siwa is suitable for anyone and everyone; young travelers, couples, old ones, you won’t regret it. Also, if you have kids, they will love it, last year we went with our daughter (she was 3), and she had an amazing time. So do not worry, it is THE DESTINATION for all of you! 💰 Trip Fees include: • 3 Nights’ Accommodation in Cairo (flexible to changes) • 4 Nights’ Accommodation in Siwa Accommodation rates based on double rooms, half board (breakfast at accommodation, and dinner in different amazing restaurants) • Transportation from/to airport • Transportation within Cairo • Transportation to/from Siwa • Transportation within Siwa • Safari Trip (Jeep Cars) • All entrance and tickets in Cairo and Siwa • Tour Guides in Cairo and Siwa • Water Trip Fees exclude: • Flight tickets to Egypt • Any extra meal • Shopping Let me know if you have a question in the Q&A below!

It is a natural water spring, fed naturally by the underground water and is considered the best-known water spring in the area, and it is said that the Egyptian queen (Cleopatra) swam in it during her visit to Siwa. 3. Oracle Temple In the mostly abandoned village of Aghurmi in the Siwa Oasis is a most famous temple of Amun, now more known as the Temple of the Oracle because of Alexander's visit when he conquered Egypt.
