Witness enormous ships taking a shortcut through the desert at the Suez Canal and enjoy the intimacy of this personalized, private tour. Experience this modern wonder of the world with a boat trip along the canal followed by a tailor-made tour of Port Said and Ismaïlia.
After 10 years of construction, the Suez Canal opened in 1869. Your guide explains how this big development helped to shorten trade routes between Europe and eastern Asia, eliminating the need to navigate around Africa. This artificial sea-level waterway connects the Mediterranean and the Red seas.
Take a boat trip from Port Said to Port Fuad and experience the illusion of cruising through the desert as you pass by the immense sand dunes lining the canal. Your private guide tells you the canal's role in international relations and how it gave rise to Verdi's opera Aida while you admire the highlights of Port Said.
Pause for a delicious seafood lunch before heading to Ismaïlia, known in the country as “The City of Beauty and Enchantment.” Situated on the west bank of the canal, Ismailia Governorate is the capital of the canal region. Hear about its history, which dates back to 1863, and admire its large number of buildings, most of which are still being used by the canal's employees.
