  • About 3 hours from Giza is this sector of the desert called "Valley of whales" since they were found there and many can currently see fossil remains of animals ancestors of the current whales, which says that all this huge desert was part of the ocean, walking through the place of soft golden dunes that the wind runs every day and seeing those fossils of millions of years old erred the skin, we returned in wonder, well worth the dusty walk...

  • I booked a tour to go to the valley of the whales today, however informs me the tourist agency that the tourism police are not allowing tourists access to this site. Still, the tours continue to promote them. Check before you buy the tour.
