Description

Day 1. Arrival in Cairo - tour of the Egyptian Museum and Old Cairo

Welcome to Egypt. Upon arrival at Cairo Airport, our representative will greet you and drive you to your hotel in Ain Sokhna in a private air-conditioned car. In Ain Sokhna, you can enjoy the beauty of the Red Sea, go snorkeling or diving, visit thermal springs, or explore desert oases. You can also book additional excursions based on your preferences. Your full-day tour will begin with a visit to the Egyptian Museum, the most important repository of Egyptian antiquities in the world. It houses the most extensive collection of artifacts from the Pharaohs, allowing you to feel the magic of Ancient Egypt's history. Have lunch at a nice local restaurant. Visit the Citadel of Saladin, which was the center of Egypt for almost 700 years, with the Alabaster Mosque of Muhammad Ali, designed by Turkish architect Yusuf Bushnak. Then, visit the Hanging Church in Old Cairo, the Church of Abu Serga where Jesus is said to have sought refuge, and the Ben Ezra Synagogue. After completing the tour, you'll return to Ain Sokhna for your last night.

Day 2. Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara and Memphis

After a delicious breakfast, you will set out with our experienced guide in a private air-conditioned car. Your full-day tour begins with a visit to the Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, which are among the ancient Seven Wonders of the World, and the Great Sphinx of Giza, dating back to the time of Khafre (2620 BCE). You will be amazed by the grandeur and mystery of the Giza Pyramids, built as tombs for pharaohs and their queens. If you wish, you can enter one of the pyramids and see how they were constructed from the inside. You'll also have the opportunity to take impressive photos with a panoramic view of the legendary Giza Pyramids.

Have lunch at a good local restaurant. Then, visit Memphis, the capital of Upper and Lower Egypt about 5000 years ago during the first dynasty. Memphis was the political, religious, and cultural center of Ancient Egypt, where the pharaoh and his court lived. Today, you can see the ruins of this great city, as well as an open-air museum featuring huge statues of Ramses II, the Alabaster Sphinx, and other pharaohs.

Next, visit Saqqara, one of the most interesting historical and archaeological areas in all of Egypt. Saqqara is an ancient cemetery where you will find many pyramids of various shapes and sizes, as well as mastabas – brick tombs of nobility and officials. Among them, the most famous is the Step Pyramid of Djoser, considered the first pyramid in history and a masterpiece of Ancient Egyptian architecture. You will also visit the Imhotep Museum, where you'll see numerous artifacts related to this famous vizier and architect.

After completing the excursion, you will return to Ain Sokhna, where you will spend your last night.
