Egypt   


Egypt's Private Tombs - This unusual tour will give you the opportunity to explore Egypt through its great variety of private tombs. From Cairo to Aswan, from the Old Kingdom to the Late Period, the tombs of the artists, administrators and relatives of the Royal Family offer a rare glimpse of the life and art of Egypt that are not found in the royal tombs and temples. With tomb decorations that often challenge, and in some cases surpass, that of the kings' burials, descriptions of the afterlife and historical inscriptions that simply cannot be found anywhere else, these tombs will provide you with a view of ancient Egypt that is truly unique.
