Tour Itinerary

Detailed itinerary of the 10 Days Classical Egypt Tour

Day 1: Arrival at Cairo International Airport and check in at a 5* hotel: When you land in Cairo, a representative from “Egypt Fun Tours” will meet you there to help you with passport control procedures, baggage identification, and carrying. You will then be driven by a private air-conditioned vehicle to your 5* hotel reservation where you may check-in and relax. Before returning to your hotel for the night, you will be treated to a dinner cruise on the alluring Nile. During this time, you will see a vibrant belly dance performance with a folklore band, replete with a mesmerizing Tannoura spin in the style of Egypt’s whirling dervishes.

Day 2: Visit the Great Pyramids of Giza: Breakfast will be served at the hotel, and you will begin your holiday in the arms of the Giza pyramids complex, whose splendor has been preserved. For more than 4000 years, the Giza pyramids complex has preserved the sanctity of ancient Egyptian culture; there, you can find some of the most unforgettable Cairo tourist sites, including:

Khufu’s Great Pyramid

The Great Pyramid, also known as the Pyramid of Khufu, is the final remaining construction of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was built in 23 years in 2580 BC with 2,300,000 chunks of limestone, each weighing 2.5 tons, and a workforce of roughly 100,000 free skilled craftsmen. The pyramid stands at a height of 147 meters (481 feet), making it the world’s tallest structure for 3800 years until the completion of the Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1311. Its sophisticated complicated interior and mystery purpose have piqued everyone’s interest in the plant.

The Great Sphinx of Giza

In ancient times, the giant sphinx was known as “Hor-Em-Akhet,” which meant “Horus of the Horizon,” and is now known as Abu Al-Hawl, which means “The Father of Terror” in contemporary Arabic. It is shaped like the sphinx, a legendary monster with the body of a lion and the head of a man thought to represent King Khafre and serves as a symbol of his strength and wisdom. The sphinx is totally carved out of giant single limestone rock and stands at a height of 73 meters (240 feet) and a width of 19 meters (66 feet).

The Valley Temple

It was built within the complex during Egypt’s ancient monarchy (2686-2134 BC) and was where the Mummification process took place. The valley is highly well-preserved archeologically due to the ancient Egyptians’ building skills, and it provided a source of valuable knowledge regarding the mummification process and Egyptian funeral ceremonies. After touring the valley, take a break for a delicious lunch before finishing your day trip by visiting:

Memphis city

It was created by King Menes in 2925 BC and is recognized for being the Land of Endurance and Allure, as well as being under the protection of the deity Ptah, patron of creativity and artwork. It housed the Hut-Ka-Ptah temple, which meant “Enclosure of the Ka of Ptah,” and was translated into Greek as “Ai-Gy-Ptos,” the etymological basis of the name Egypt.

Step Pyramid of Saqqara

The celestial vision of the Saqqara Step Pyramid transformed Egypt forever by ushering in the golden period of pyramid building in Ancient Egypt. It was built by the renowned Imhotep, Pharaoh Djoser’s vizier, and has a unique design consisting of six steps. It rises at a height of 62 meters and is surrounded by a large complex with impressive ceremonial monuments. You’ll fly to Aswan and check into your 5-star hotel reservation after arriving in Cairo.

We will return you to your hotel for the night.

Day 3: Explore Alexandria’s Top Attractions: On the third day, wake up to a delicious breakfast at your Cairo hotel before being transferred to Alexandria, the Mediterranean Sea’s jewel, to see some of the city’s most popular tourist sites, including:

Citadel of Qaitbay

Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf Al-Din Qait Bay built the Qaitbay Citadel in 1477 on the same site as the legendary Alexandria Lighthouse, using salvaged stones from the wrecked lighthouse that was once the third longest surviving ancient wonder until its sad destruction by a series of earthquakes between 956 AD and 1323 AD.

The Library of Alexandria

The Alexandria Library is a replica of the ancient Alexandria Library, and it is one of the world’s best and most sophisticated libraries, housing the world’s sixth-largest Francophone library. It is a trilingual library with volumes in Arabic, English, and French. It also has the biggest storehouse of French literature in North Africa and the Middle East, as well as spectacular art galleries and some of the world’s rarest book collections.

After that, enjoy your lunch and prepare to visit:

Pompey’s Pillar

The biggest monolithic column ever erected outside of Rome, reaching 28 meters tall and 2.7 meters broad and containing a Greek inscription dedicated to Emperor Diocletian on its western top side. It was given the name Pompey’s Pillar because Crusaders thought that the relics of the renowned Roman leader Pompey were kept in a jar at the very top of the pillar during the Middle Ages.

Kom El Shoqafa’s Catacombs

The Catacombs are a one-of-a-kind archaeological site that represents the merging of Hellenistic and Roman aesthetic elements with ancient Egyptian Pharaonic design. It was built as a necropolis in the 2nd century AD and has a variety of Greek and Roman antiquities and decorations across its three-level stories, earning it the distinction of one of the Middle Ages’ seven wonders.

We will take you back to your Cairo hotel for the night at the conclusion of the day.

Day 4: Fly to Aswan and Explore Aswan’s Top Attractions: After breakfast and check-out from your Cairo hotel, we will drive you to Cairo Airport to catch your flight to Aswan for a fantastic day tour of the stunning Aswan tourist sites, including:

The High Dam

A contemporary monument was built between 1960 and 1970 as part of a cooperative project with the Moscow-based Hydro Project Institute to improve Nile flooding management, generate hydroelectricity, and boost agricultural water storage. The dam was to blame for the likely destruction of the Abu Simbel and Philae temples.

The Unfinished Obelisk

The unfinished obelisk is a beautiful vision 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,” it demonstrates how obelisks were shaped as it would have reached a total height of 42 m and weighed 1200 tons, but unfortunately, the obelisk was cracked during construction and has remained

After lunch, finish your journey by paying a special visit to:

Temple of Philae

Philea Temple is the birthplace of ancient Egyptian mythology, such as the “Myth of Osiris,” in which Isis’ husband “Osiris” is murdered by his brother, the desert god. After being killed out of enmity, Osiris is resurrected as the ruler of the underworld. Hours, the falcon sky God and son of Isis and Osiris, defeats Set, ushering in a new period of wealth and justice. The temple was moved to the island of Agilkia in the 1960s as part of a UNESCO-led rescue attempt to keep it from being lost.

We will take you to a 5* hotel in Aswan for the night at the conclusion of the day.

Day 5: Travel to Abu Simbel and learn about its history: Take your breakfast boxes and check out of the hotel in Aswan on day five of your 10-day classic vacation to Egypt, then join your tour guide for a drive to the southwest of Aswan to see:

Temples of Abu Simbel

Since its construction by King Ramses II, the Abu Simbel temple has stood as guard in front of the gates of heaven (1279-1213 BCE). The sun festival takes place on the 22nd of February and the 22nd of October each year, when the sun shines on the faces of the four seated statues of Ramses the Great, Ptah (God of Creation), Amun (The Creator God), and Ra (Sun God), and the second smaller temple is dedicated to his beloved wife Queen Nefertari. The temple is known as the “Temple of Ramesses, Beloved of Amun,” and it was the focal point of a UNESCO-led rescue campaign in the mid-1960s.

After that, you’ll travel to Aswan for lunch before boarding your train to Luxor, where you’ll check into a 5* hotel for the night.

Day 6: Explore Luxor’s East Bank: On the fifth day, you will have breakfast at the hotel and then continue your holiday by seeing some of the top Luxor tourist sites on the East Bank, including:

Karnak Temple

When it was built more than 4000 years ago, the temple of Karnak was labeled Ipet-isu The Most Selected of Places and Pr-Imn House Of Amon, and it was dubbed Ipet-isu The Most Selected of Places and Pr-Imn House Of Amon. It is one of the world’s largest religious man-made structures, serving as the worship center of the entire ancient Egyptian civilization for over 1500 years to countless deities such as Osiris, Ptah, and Isis, but the complex was primarily dedicated to the Theban triad of God Amun, his wife the Goddess of Justice Mut, and his son the moon god Khnsou. After that, you will have lunch in a Luxor restaurant, then transfer to your hotel to recover, and then move with your tour guide at night to enjoy:

Temple of Luxor

Luxor Temple is a lunar marvel, protected by the moon, which throws its cool light on it, revealing its hidden mystery and charm. It was built around 1400 BCE under the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and was called as “Ipetresyet,” which means “southern sanctuary.” It was devoted to the Theban Triad’s God Amun, which symbolized royal regeneration. The temple’s architecture is extremely stunning, with elaborate decorations and structures that become even more enticing at night.

You will return to your accommodation for the night when your day excursion is over.

Day 7: Explore Luxor’s West Bank: After breakfast at the hotel, you’ll continue your Luxor adventure by seeing the remainder of the West Bank’s fascinating Luxor attractions, such as:

The Kings’ Valley

The Valley of the Kings is a place of blissful rest for the greatest kings and queens of the new kingdom (1570-1070 BC). It contains 63 tombs filled with mind-blowing treasures, artifacts, statues, enchanting decorations, and the remains of pharaohs such as Rameses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X), Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and In 1979, UNESCO designated the Valley of the Kings as a World Heritage Site.

Temple of Hatshepsut

Hatshepsut Temple, also known as Djoser-Djeseru “Holy of Holies,” is an angelic structure from heaven dedicated to one of Ancient Egypt’s most successful rulers, Queen Hatshepsut. The temple was completed in 1479 BC during Egypt’s new monarchy and took 15 years to complete. The temple’s architecture is based on the new kingdom’s Classical Architecture style, and it houses some of ancient Egypt’s most exquisite antiquities and sculptures.

Take a little pause to eat your lunch and prepare to visit:

Memnon’s Colossi

The Colossal Colossi of Memnon are two quartzite sandstone stones that reach 18 meters (60 feet) tall, weigh 720 tons each, and are shaped like Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1386-1350). The Colossus was destroyed by a huge earthquake in 27 BC and reconstructed in 199 AD. During the Greco-Roman era, the sculptures were immensely famous due to the Vocal Memnon phenomenon, which was created by singing at dawn, which was nothing more than the sound of the wind blowing through the statue.

Then go back to your hotel for the night.

Day 8: Fly to Cairo and see some of the city’s historic landmarks: Day eight will begin with breakfast and check-out from your Luxor hotel, followed by a flight to Cairo to finish your holiday in Egypt and explore some of the most fascinating Cairo tourist sites, including:

Mosque of Sultan Hassan

It included a prayer house and a tomb for the royal line descended from Mohammad Ali, and was supposed to mirror the mosque of Sultan Hassan in design, volume, and height.

Mosque of Ibn Tulun

Ibn Tulun Mosque is authentic Islamic architecture that encapsulates the actual spirit of Islamic civilization in Egypt in the most fascinating way.

Day trip to Wadi el Hitan and Wadi el Rayan

July 9, 2024

We went on a full day trip to Wadi el Hitan and Wadi el Rayan with Mohamed (Hamada). Mohamed was a wonderful guide, always making sure we had plenty of water and enough to eat, and providing us with information about the area and Egypt more generally. He also gave us plenty of time to explore by ourselves. We would highly recommend Egypt Fun Tours and Mohamed.
