2023 G.O. TEAM | EXPERIENCE EGYPT
Greeks and Romans were amongst the first ‘tourists’ to this country. Even Jesus came to this land as an infant with his parents, Mary and Joseph. Egypt, “Misr” in Arabic, is most visited for the Nile River, Mount Sinai (of the 10 Commandments in the Bible), the Giza pyramids outside Cairo (Egypt’s capital) and many other sites and treasures of the Pharaohs along the Nile in and near Luxor and Aswan.

Although most visitors travel to Egypt to see the monuments and the Nile, the most enduring and endearing memory will certainly be her people and their way of life.
Situated at a cross-roads of trade and culture, Egypt continues to be a focal point of change in North Africa and the Middle East and has key links with her neighbors, Sudan and Ethiopia, further up the Nile.
