    What to Expect
    The quiet oasis of Fayoum, located a short distance from Cairo, was once known as Crocodilopolis, since the city was originally home to priests who worshiped these giant reptiles and gilded them with gold and sweet honey cakes. Today, travelers find their way to this unique destination where ancient wooden waterwheels highlight another of the incredible engineering contributions made by early Egyptians. Follow your expert Egyptologist on this private day tour from Cairo and explore some of the 200 plus wheels that transported water from the Bahr Yusef to Medinet. Learn about the impressive stone obelisk that was discovered in the 18th century and recently restored before it was erected in Medinet.
