From the airport, you will be transferred by a private air-conditioned car to your five-star hotel for checking-in.
Visit the Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum on Day Two.
After eating breakfast in the early morning, you’ll meet your private tour guide to see some of human history’s biggest structures, including one of the Seven Wonders of the World: the Great Pyramid.
Egyptian Pyramids in Giza
One of the world’s oldest structures, the Giza Pyramids Complex is made up of three major pyramids, six smaller ones, the huge sphinx, who served as the nation’s lone guardian, and the valley temple, which was used to preserve the cultural legacy of the kings and queens for endless centuries. The complex is regarded as one of the top tourist destinations in Egypt.
The Great Pyramid
It is one of the oldest and biggest buildings in the whole modern world since it is the final remaining piece of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Due to its complicated interior relative to its size, the Great Pyramid is shrouded in enigmas and far-fetched speculations. It was the first of its sort and the catalyst for Ancient Egypt’s golden period of building, dating to 2580 BC, making it more than 4500 years old. With a staff of 100,000 free skilled employees and 2,300,000 pieces of limestone, each weighing 2.5 tonnes, it was constructed in 20 years. Its height of 147 meters (481 feet) made it the highest structure in the world for 3800 years, until the Lincoln Cathedral in England was built in 1311.
The Great Sphinx
The oldest statue in history is known as Abu Al-Hawl, which is Arabic for “The Father of Terror.” It is shaped after the mythological monster known as the Sphinx, which has the body of a lion and the head of a man, most likely King Khafre, as a sign of strength and knowledge. Even now, there are still many mysteries and unresolved questions surrounding the sphinx, thus it continues to inspire innumerable visitors, poets, and adventurers. It was cut out of single limestone rock and measures 73 meters (240 feet) and 19 meters (66 feet) in height.
The Valley Temple
It is where the ancient kingdom’s mummification practice was first practiced (2686 2134 BC). It is composed completely of limestone and granite and has amazing diorite sculptures of Chephren. It is one of the best-preserved buildings from the ancient Egyptian civilization.
After eating lunch at a neighborhood eatery in Cairo, continue your journey by touring:
The Egyptian Museum
It is situated in the center of Cairo and has the largest collection of exquisite, rare ancient Egyptian artifacts and monuments that date back more than 4,000 years, from all different historical eras, including ancient Egyptian, Greek, Coptic, and Islamic. In the shape of sculptures, jewelry, funerary goods like the treasures of King Tutankhamun, the Narmer palette, Papyrus, and numerous others, there are more than 150,000 rare genuine manufactured from costly materials like gold or jewelry to simple ones like wood or stone.
We will transport you to the hotel for the night at the conclusion of the day.
Third day: a trip to Alexandria
Following breakfast, you will travel to Alexandria, a gem of the Mediterranean Sea where charm and wonder radiate in a really wonderful way, to see its tourist attractions, beginning with:
Kom El Shoqafa’s catacombs
The Necropolis, an ancient Egyptian monument from the second century AD, is one of Egypt’s most distinctive structures because it successfully merged Roman and Hellenistic aesthetic influences with Pharaonic Egyptian architecture. It was named one of the seven marvels of the Middle Ages because it has many magnificent items and décor over its three levels.
returning to the surface, continue your journey by going to:
The biggest monolithic column ever constructed outside of Rome, it is made of solid red granite and is 28 meters tall by 2.7 meters broad. On its western top side is a Greek inscription honoring Emperor Diocletian. Because the Crusaders thought in error that the renowned Roman leader Pompey’s bones were kept in a jar at the very top of the pillar, it was given the name Pompey’s Pillar.
Citadel of Qaitbay
The Mediterranean Sea is the best illustration of its beauty and power. It was built in 1477 by Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf Al-Din Qa’it Bay on top of the fabled lighthouse of Alexandria, which was the third-longest-lasting ancient marvel until it was destroyed by earthquakes between 956 AD and 1323 AD. The Qaitbay Citadel is well-known because it has amazing Islamic-era decorations and some people think it carries the eternal brilliant spirit of the Alexandria Lighthouse.
You will stop for lunch at a seafood restaurant before continuing your adventure by visiting:
It serves as a tribute to the historic Alexandria Library and is one of the largest and most sophisticated libraries in the world. It is well known for being the sixth-largest library for Francophones in the world. The library is trilingual since it has volumes in Arabic, English, and French. It also has the greatest collection of French-language literature in North Africa and the Middle East, as well as some of the rarest books on the planet.
We will return you to your hotel in Cairo for the night at the conclusion of the day.
