The Giza complex consists of three main pyramids, six little pyramids, the great sphinx, and the place of immortal preservation of the valley temple.
The Great Pyramid
The Great Pyramid of Khufu lies among the skies of paradise, it is known for being the last intact structure of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It is older than 4500 years old which makes it the world’s oldest mystery because of the fringe theories attached to its origin, and its complex interior compared to its magnitude. It was constructed in 2580 BC for 20 years using 2,300,000 pieces of limestone each weighing 2.5 tons and a workforce of 100,000 free skilled workers resulting in making the height of the pyramid 147 m (481 ft) which made it the tallest building in the world for 3800 years until the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1311.
The Great Sphinx
The Great Sphinx is one of the most mysterious objects in existence, it has the shape of a mythical creature called the sphinx that has the body of a lion and the head of a man who is believed to be king Khafre to represent power and wisdom. It is known as Abu Al-Hawl which is Arabic for The Father of terror. The sphinx is at the height of 73 m (240 ft) and 19 m (66 ft) and was carved out of single limestone rock.
The Valley Temple
The Valley Temple is home to the Mummification process, it was constructed within Egypt’s old Kingdom (2686 2134 BC) within the complex. It’s one of the best-preserved archeological sites of the ancient Egyptian civilization and the source of great information about the mummification of Ancient Egypt. The valley is made of limestone, and granite and holds unique diorite statues of King Khafre.
Proceed to have your lunch at a local restaurant in Cairo. Then we will move to visit:
The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum contains the largest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts and monuments in the world dating back to more than 4000 years across. Inside the two stories building are over 150,000 artifacts made from extravagant materials like gold & gemstones to ordinary ones like wood or stone that come in the shape of statues, funerary objects like the treasures of King Tutankhamun, the Narmer palette, Papyrus, and countless others. Several famous mummies give an insight into the mentality of ancient Egyptians.
Finally, you will drive to Cairo airport then catch your flight to Luxor then check-in 5* hotel overnight.
Day Three: Tour to Luxor Attractions
On day three, you will enjoy your breakfast at the hotel, then accompany your Egyptologist tour guide to explore all the famous Luxor tourist attractions such as:
Valley of the Kings
The valley of the kings is like a time capsule located in the heart of the holy mountain which has acted as the final resting place for the greatest kings and queens of Egypt’s new kingdom (1570-1070 BC). It holds 63 tombs filled with various enchanting treasures, artifacts, statues, hypnotically beautiful decorations, and the remains of pharaohs like Rameses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX, X), Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and the famous King Tutankhamun which all resulted in the valley becoming a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1979.
Queen Hatshepsut Temple
The Hatshepsut Temple is renowned for being the beauty of Luxor, it gained the name Djoser-Djeseru (Holy of Holies) and showcases the might & will of one of the most successful rulers in the history of ancient Egypt Queen Hatshepsut. The temple was designed in 1479 BC and took 15 years to construct. The design of the temple is based on the concept of Classical Architecture of the new kingdom and within the temple lies some of the most impressive statues, decorations, and artifacts in all of Egypt.
Colossi of Memnon
Colossi of Memnon is different than most of the monuments in Upper Egypt, it has been known as the colossal guardians of Luxor. They are two massive blocks of quartzite sandstone standing at the height of 18 m (60ft) weighing 720 tons each and have the shape of Pharaoh Amenhotep III(1386-1350). The colossi were damaged due to a large earthquake in 27 BC but were rebuilt again in 199 AD. The statues gained quite a fame during the Greco-Roman period due to The Vocal Memnon which resulted from the statues singing from time to time which were nothing more than the sound of the wind passing through the statue at dawn.
Then move to have your lunch on an island, so your tour includes a boat trip in the Nile River followed by a tour to:
Karnak temple is one of the holiest places on the face of the planet, it was known as Ipet-isu The Most Selected Of Places, and Pr-Imn House Of Amon, it dates to more than 4000 years and is the largest religious man-made construction in the world & also the biggest open-air museums on earth. It was the heart of the religious worship of the entire ancient Egyptian kingdom for more than 1500 years to various deities but was dedicated primarily to the Theban triad that consisted of God Amun with his wife the Goddess of Justice Mut and his son the moon god Khnsou, plus other gods like the great Osiris, Montu, Ptah and Isis.
You will spend your overnight at your hotel.

The High Dam
The High Dam represents the modern might of the city of Aswan, the dam was constructed between 1960 & 1970 during the reign of president Gamal Adel-Nasser. The dam was designed as a cooperation project with the Moscow-based Hydro project Institute to have better control over Nile flooding, generate Hydroelectricity, and provide increased water storage for irrigation in its reservoir lake Nasser.
The Unfinished Obelisk
The Unfinished Obelisk is a tale that was sadly left unfinished, it was ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to stand at the entrance of the Karnak temple. It was known as “Tekhenu” which means to pierce the sky” and shows how obelisks were created from scratch and the method of construction of Ancient Egypt, it reached the height of 42 m and weighed 1200 tons. Unfortunately, the obelisk was cracked during construction and remained at the same location even today.
