We have been granted very special access not normally available to the general public. We will have the privilege of watching the sunrise on the Giza Plateau with just our group in between the Paws of the mighty Sphinx. The Sphinx was widely believed to have been an oracle. Between its paws is a 15th-century BC stone tablet called a ‘Dream Stela’ recounting a vision given to a prince who slept in the shadow of the Sphinx (and perhaps sought its divine aid) and later became a pharaoh.
We will return to the hotel for breakfast and a short rest.
Later today we will explore the Giza Plateau, your chance to personally stand where the Ancient Egyptians stood thousands of years ago, next to the Great Pyramid of Cheops, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one that still exists. Here you will have the option to climb inside the Kings Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza (optional extra cost).
We continue our adventure with a camel ride through the Sahara for some amazing photos of 9 Pyramids. Late lunch will be served on the Giza Plateau with a final view of the pyramids as we leave Cairo tomorrow. Before returning to the hotel we will spend a few hours with Gamal Abdul an Egyptian Reiki Master and Healer to learn about Chakra Healing Oils that date back to the time of the Pharaoh’s and all their healing benefits.
