What to Expect
Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo to enjoy El Fayoum’s famous sites. From Cairo to Fayoum is about 95 km.

Today all visits are in Wadi El Ryan, designated as Protected Area in 1989. You will start your tour in Wadi Hitan Protected Area (Valley of the Whales), about 90 km far from Fayoum. Wadi Hitan, or Valley of the Whales, is located in the Protected Area of Wadi El Rayan and it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of the 40 million year old whale skeletons found there.

On the way to Wadi El Rayan Water Falls, visit Mudawara Mountain. Then on to Wadi Al Ryan Water Falls. Wadi El Rayan is a natural depression located in the western desert, 42m below sea level. Wadi Rayan consists of two lakes connected by Egypt’s only waterfalls, formed in 1970 by an overflow of drainage water from the farmlands in Fayoum. After that, enjoy Medinet Madi (Ancient City Uncovered) which dates back to the third pharaonic dynasty built by Amenemhet III and completed Amenemhet IV.
