The tour guide & the driver will meet you in the early morning in your hotel’s lobby then you will travel to the oasis town of Fayoum which was the main place of worship of the crocodile god, Sobek. Wander Qaroon Lake the largest lake in the entire country, 45 metres below sea level, temples of Karanis,its history goes back to the 3rd century BCE, when Greek mercenaries founded it, and lasts until the 5th century CE, stop at Wadi El Rian protected area and its waterfalls is an amazing destination for a soft-adventure, you can swim in the lakes, jump off the waterfalls, and most of all, just enjoy the amazing natural scenery and enjoy bird watching

Of interest are the huge wooden waterwheels, another incredible engineering feat by the ancient Egyptians, though less known than the mighty Pyramids. The waters of the Bahr Yusef are distributed throughout the oasis from the city, the capital of the Fayoum. Approximately 200 of the great waterwheels are located throughout the oasis. The Seven Waterwheels, a Fayoum landmark, are surrounded by mangoes, palms and willows.
