are taking a reasonably long break in Cyprus, then a mini cruise to the Holy Land, Egypt
or both is to be recommended. You can see a lot in 2 or 3 days, and although it is very
much an organised tour, it is an interesting one. You do not have to
take any of the excursions at the other end, if you prefer you can wander around by
yourself, but for goodness sake don't miss the boat !
You can take a 2 or 3 legged journey, and as you can see by the map both
places are very convenient to Cyprus.
There is a two day cruise to Egypt that departs twice a week from
On arrival you can be taken by coach to Cairo to see the Egyptian
museum, the Pyramids at
Giza and the sphinx. Usually a couple of shopping venues are included as well.
The cruise to the Holy land also departs twice a week from Limassol
Then a coach will take you (if you book it) to Jerusalem and take a guided tour of Golgotha
and the Kidron valley, also a walk to the wailing wall, churches, bazaars and
then on to Bethlehem.
Then there is the three day option
It combines both of the other excursions, but mind that the excursion
prices are not included in the ticket price. Each coach trip is between
Cú15 and Cú39
