tour overview

Discover the Bahariya Oasis in one day with Your Egypt Tours. You will drive with your Egyptologist guide to Bahariya Oasis, located 360 kilometers south west of Cairo. Once you arrive there, you will enjoy walking around the Old Village of the Oasis where you will see the enchanting groves of palms and fruit trees. You will then go on a trip to the Black Mountains, the sand dunes and the salt lake. Thereafter, you will continue to the famous Mummies Hall. The Golden mummies were discovered in 1996 when a donkey belonging to an Antiquities guard on duty at the nearby Temple of Alexander got its foot caught in a hole. The donkey eventually freed itself and its owner, Abd El Maugud, notified the Antiquities authority that then discovered the first golden Mummies. You will then proceed to visit Temple of Ain El Muftella which was once the main water source of the old capital of the oasis. Thereafter, you will go to the ruins on a hill, the English House, at sunset and enjoy the panoramic view. In the evening, you will visit the village and shops before you drive back to Cairo
