After unwinding and taking in a vibrant belly dance performance with a folklore band that includes the iconic Tannoura spin in observance of Egypt’s whirling dervishes heritage, you will be transferred back to your hotel for the night.
Day Two: Go to Sakkara and the Giza Pyramids.
After breakfast and check-out from the hotel, you’ll meet your private Egyptologist tour guide to start your Cairo, Luxor, and Alexandria trip by visiting some of the most important structures from ancient Egypt’s civilization, such as:
Giza Pyramids Complex
The Giza pyramid complex is a genuine miracle that dates back more than 4,000 years. It contains the three main pyramids, six smaller pyramids, the great sphinx, the only guardian of Egypt, and the valley temple, all of which were built to ascend to the heavens to take their rightful place and leave their legacy for countless future generations.
The Great Pyramid
The Great Pyramid of Khufu is one of the biggest buildings in the world and the last remaining example of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was built in 2580 BC, making it more than 4500 years old, and is credited for ushering in the Golden Age of Contracture. It took 20 years to construct, using 2,300,000 pieces of limestone, and it rises to a height of 147 meters (481 feet), making it the highest structure in existence for 3800 years until the Lincoln Cathedral in England was erected in 1311 AD. Due to its intricate construction and design throughout ancient times, the pyramid continues to be the subject of several fanciful and enigmatic hypotheses.
The Great Sphinx
Being the oldest monument still standing and the source of so much mystery and awe, the magnificent sphinx is well recognized. It is shaped like the mythological monster known as the sphinx, which has a lion’s body and a man’s head, most likely King Khafre, also known as King Chephren, as a sign of knowledge and strength. Its heights are 73 meters (240 feet) and 19 meters (66 feet).
The Valley Temple
The Valley Temple is a funerary temple famous for having been the site of mummification since the Old Kingdom of Egypt. It is one of the best-preserved constructions from the era of ancient Egypt. It is composed completely of limestone and granite and has magnificent Chephren diorite figures.
Proceed to a neighborhood eatery in Cairo for lunch. Next, go to visit:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara
The Saqqara Step Pyramid was the first pyramid built in ancient Egypt, ushering in an era of pyramid building there. Its distinctive design, which consists of six steps and rises to a total height of 62 meters, was created by the notorious Imhotep, the vizier of Pharaoh Djoser. Additionally, a complex that was the first of its type and has stunning ornamentation and imposing ceremonial buildings surrounds the pyramid.
City of Memphis
Memphis City, established by King Menes, also known as Narmer, to unite the two kingdoms, was the cradle of ancient Egyptian hierarchy and control. It was also the country’s first recognized capital. It is renowned for being a country of tenacity, strength, and beauty. It is also the birthplace of the god Ptah, the patron of creation and the arts. It is home to several ancient ruins that date back more than 4,000 years, as well as magnificent temples to gods and goddesses like Aton and Hathor.
After the second day, your tour guide will take you to the airport in Cairo so you can catch your flight to the fantastical city of Luxor, where you will spend the night.
Day 3: View Luxor East Bank Attractions
You will have your breakfast at your accommodation on day three as you meet your tour guide and see all the stunning Luxor tourist sites in the East Bank, beginning with:
Temple of Karnak
The Karnak Temple sometimes referred to as the Temple of Holy Beauty, is one of the largest outdoor museums in the world. It was also referred to as Pr-Imn House of Amon and Ipet-isu The Most Selected Of Places. It has been around for more than 4,000 years and is one of the biggest religious man-made structures in the world. For more than 1500 years, it served as the center of all of ancient Egypt’s religious observances. It had a shrine for several gods, including Osiris, Montu, Ptah, Isis, and others, but it was primarily devoted to the Theban triad, which was made up of God Amun, his wife Mut, the Goddess of Justice, and their son Khnsou, the Moon God.
After a delicious restaurant for lunch, you’ll be driven to a 5-star hotel to check in and unwind. In the evening, you’ll travel with your tour guide to see the following places:
Luxor Temple by Night
The mesmerizing beauty, charm, and creative essence of the whole city may be seen in the Luxor Temple. It was constructed about 1400 BCE under Pharaoh Amenhotep III, and at the time it was called “Ipetresyet,” which means the southern sanctuary. The temple, which was devoted to the Theban Triad god Amun and intended to symbolize the idea of the revival of royalty, was genuinely enchanting because of its elaborate embellishments. The moon only shines on the temple at night, when it is the greatest time to visit when everything is brought to the world of the living.
Go to your 5-star hotel to spend the night.
Visit Luxor West Bank landmarks on the fourth day.
After breakfast, you will continue your tour of the gorgeous cities of Cairo, Luxor, and Alexandria with your guide before enjoying a tour of Luxor West Bank, which will begin with:
The Kings’ Valley
The greatest kings and queens of the New Kingdom are buried in the Valley of the Kings, a mythical gateway to the afterlife constructed by the ancient Egyptians in the middle of a mountain (1570-1070 BC). The valley was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979 due to its historical and artistic significance; it contains 63 tombs, the most famous of which are those of Rameses II, Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and the well-known boy-king Tutankhamun. Each of these tombs is filled with magnificent statues, artifacts, and decorative elements.
Temple of Hatshepsut
The Hatshepsut Temple, also known as Djeser-Djeseru (Holy of Holies), is said to be the most exquisite building ever built by ancient Egyptians. It was constructed in 1479 BC to demonstrate the danger posed by the New Kingdom (1550–1070 BC), Hatshepsut’s devotion to the god Amun, and her might and allure, which made her one of the most successful monarchs in Ancient Egypt’s history. The temple’s structure is based on the idea of classical architecture and houses some of Egypt’s most stunning sculptures, decorations, and works of art.
Enjoy your lunch at a first-rate Luxor restaurant before traveling with your tour guide to see:
Amenhotep III (1386–1350) constructed the Colossi of Memnon, which rise at a height of 18 meters (60 feet), weigh 720 tonnes each, and are shaped like the Pharaoh himself. They were intended to serve as the enormous guards of Luxor. A significant earthquake that occurred in 27 BC devastated the colossi, although they were later reconstructed in 199 AD. The Vocal Memnon phenomena, which was caused by the statues sometimes making a singing sound that was nothing more than the sound of the wind blowing past the statue at dawn, made the sculptures highly well-known throughout the Greco-Roman era.
Transfer back to your 5-star hotel in Luxor for the night after the day.
Day 5: Fly to Cairo and see the city’s historic landmarks
After eating breakfast at the hotel, you will be taken to the airport in Luxor to catch your flight to Cairo. When you get to Cairo, you’ll finish your tour of the city’s sites, beginning with:
The Egyptian Museum
All the marvels and secrets of the ancient Egyptian culture are kept in storage and are guarded by the Egyptian Museum. The museum’s monuments and relics span more than 4000 years and several historical eras. Over 120,000 unique, authentic artifacts in the shape of sculptures, jewelry, and funerary items are housed inside the museum’s two levels. These artifacts are fashioned from both expensive materials like gold and jewels and more affordable ones like wood or stone. King Tutankhamun’s riches are the most well-known and popular exhibits, and the museum also included several mummies that were on display.
In Cairo, lunch will be provided in a neighborhood eatery before visiting:
Citadel of Salah El Din
The Salah El-Din Citadel, often known as the Cairo Citadel, has been keeping watch over the city for many generations. The great king Salah el Din finished it in 1182 AD. During the Crusades and Napoleon’s French invasion, it functioned as a strong fortification, and in the 19th century, it was transformed into the government’s seat of power for more than 700 years. The citadel is a magnificent marvel, including several museums in exquisitely designed structures, as well as unfathomable beauty and amazement.
Mosque of Mohamed Ali
The Mohamed Ali Mosque, which makes great use of marble, is a work of living art known as the alabaster mosque. It was built between 1830 and 1848 AD as a copy of the blue mosque in Istanbul as a symbol of freedom and independence from the Ottoman Empire. The mosque was built with elements of French rococo and ottoman design, and it has an enormous, breath-taking dome. It includes a Turkish ablutions fountain that resembles a large Easter egg and an elegant brass clock that King Louis Philippe of France gave to Muhammad Ali in 1845 in return for an obelisk that now stands in Paris’ Concorde Square.
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) is a mystical gateway to Egypt’s eternal legacy, which will be revealed via the amazing artifacts and monuments that date back more than 4,000 years, exposing both Egypt’s physical and intangible culture and history.
Market in Khan El Khalili
The Khan El Khalili Mosque is a time capsule that has managed to endure in the present. The bazaar, which dates back to 970 AD and is the oldest operating market in the Middle East, is known as the “golden brick road of the Middle East.” The street has exquisitely decorated Islamic buildings. The street is still in use today and has everything a traveler could want. It is also home to several cafés and stores that are hundreds of years old, giving it a fantastic vintage atmosphere.
After that, you’ll move to a five-star hotel in Cairo for the night to round off your day.
Sixth day: a visit to Alexandria landmarks
Day six begins with you enjoying breakfast before continuing your trip to Cairo, Luxor, and Alexandria. You will be accompanied by your Egyptologist tour guide as you travel to Alexandria, starting with:
Kom El Shoqafa’s catacombs
The Catacombs are one of the rare instances of art designs to be found anywhere on the globe, and they represent the appeal and impact of ancient Egyptian civilization on Greco-Roman society. It was built as a necropolis in the second century AD and can combine aesthetic aspects from the Hellenistic and Roman cultures with the Pharaonic architecture of ancient Egypt in the most beautiful way. Its extensive collection of Greek and Roman antiques and decorations earned it the distinction of being one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages.
Return to the surface and continue your visit:
One of the most impressive monolithic columns ever constructed outside of Rome, Pompey’s Pillar is a true representation of power. It is composed entirely of solid red granite and is 28 meters high by 2.7 meters broad. On its western top side is a Greek inscription honoring Emperor Diocletian. It is known as Pompey’s Pillar because, throughout the Middle Ages, crusaders thought in error that the renowned Roman leader Pompey’s bones were kept in a jar at the very top of the pillar.
Enjoy a wonderful lunch at a seafood restaurant before going to:
Citadel of Qaitbay
QaitBey Citadel was built in 1477 by Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf Al-Din Qa’it Bay on the same site as the fabled lighthouse of Alexandria using stones salvaged from the destroyed lighthouse that served as the third longest surviving ancient wonder in the world until it was destroyed by a series of earthquakes between 956 AD and 1323 AD. QaitBey Citadel is an echo from the past waiting to survive. For the Islamic age, the citadel boasts some very amazing and entrancing designs.
One of the most well-known and well-known places in the world, Alexandria Library serves as a memorial to the old Alexandria library. The sixth-biggest Francophone library in the world is housed in one of the world’s largest and most technologically equipped libraries. The library is trilingual since it has books in Arabic, English, and French. It also has the greatest collection of French-language literature in North Africa and the Middle East, lovely art galleries, and some of the world’s rarest books.
In the evening, take a private air-conditioned vehicle back to your accommodation in Cairo.
