After our camel ride we go back to Karnak for the Sound and Light Show. Neat day is another very early start as we attempt to beat the sun into the sky in a hot air balloon ride with the Valley of the Queens beneath us and the Nile

  flood plain stretching into the distance. In the afternoon we fly to Cairo for a three day spell staying in the Pyramids Park Hotel. Unfortunately an early morning rise is again required for our first tour of the day – the Great Pyramids of the Giza.
