The Great Pyramid and the Great Sphinx of Giza

One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Great Pyramid of Giza is among the most impressive structures on Earth. The largest of the incredible pyramids located in the Giza Necropolis, the Great Pyramid is also called the Pyramid of Khufu, named for the Pharaoh for whom the giant tomb structure was built. Constructed over 4,500 years ago in the 2,500s BC, the structure stands at nearly 500 ft and stands in full to this day. Learn in detail about the amazing pyramids that have made it through countless leaders, wars and natural disasters. From how they were built to how they gained fame in Ancient Greece, the Great Pyramid is a wonder like no other. In the same complex, you will find the Great Sphinx. Standing at 240 ft, the history of the Sphinx is mysterious. Learn about the stories and theories of one of the world's oldest statues.

King Tut, Mummies and Ancient Egyptian Culture

Built around the fertile Nile Delta, Ancient Egypt was one of the world's first great civilizations with advancements unmatched again for centuries. Your expert guide Arafa will take you through the wonders of Ancient Egyptian culture. Much of what is known today of Egyptian culture is due to their incredible work in preservation, especially mummification. With the plethora of information, Arafa will explain the world of Egypt over 4,000 years ago including language, hieroglyphics, and societal structure. Learn about what's so special about the most famous ancient Egyptian pharaoh, King Tut and how he easily could have been lost without a mention in the history books.

Pyramids, Dynasties and Power

Very nicely done. I particularly appreciated the variety of visuals, the box view of the tour guide allowing images on the screen at all times (no talking head here) and knowledgeable commentary. Good pace, good choice and mix of information, excellent English, warm personality and obvious pride in the treasure that Egypt is. On the flip side, even though the polls were a nice interactive break I think that they took time away from the material. But considering that our guide didn't know who he would be talking to, I think he did a great job choosing information and activities for a general audience. I loved the fun facts at the end.
