The Great Pyramid
The final of the seven marvels that Pharaoh Khufu’s vizier Hemiunu planned and constructed, the Great Pyramid, is still standing. It is 6 million tonnes in weight, 147 meters (481 feet) tall, and has a very intricate interior with mind-blowing chambers and passages.
The Great Sphinx
The huge Sphinx of Khafre, also known as Horus of the Horizon (2558–2532 BC), became famous as one of the largest and oldest man-made monuments in the world and a representation of strength and knowledge. It is the location of Thutmose IV’s dream stele, which has a lion’s body and Khafre’s face characteristics.
The Valley Temple
The valley temple was built during the ancient kingdom (2686–2134 BC) to execute mummification on the kings’ and queens’ remains.

Step Pyramid of Saqqara
The great step pyramid of Saqqara was constructed between 2670 and 2650 BC according to Imhotep’s original idea, which had six steps that rose to a height of 62 meters, a one-of-a-kind funeral complex, and a sizable courtyard.
City of Memphis
Pharaoh Narmer established Memphis City in 3200 BC as the nation’s first uniting capital under the divine protection of Ptah, the deity of craftsmanship and the arts. The word “Egypt” has its roots in the Greek term “Aigyptos,” which was formerly used to refer to it. The city is home to some of the most fascinating historical and archaeological sites.

The whole family will have lunch in Cairo before traveling to:
Citadel of Salah El Din
Between 1176 and 1182, the Cairo Citadel, a floating celestial spirit, arrived and served as Egypt’s administrative hub for more than 500 years, up to the 1860s. This massive defensive structure houses several mosques and museums with magnificent Islamic architecture and ornamentation.
Mosque of Mohamed Ali
Built between 1830 and 1848 as a symbol of freedom, Mohamed Ali Mosque is a beautiful religious complex of historical value. It is home to some of the finest specimens of Ottoman architecture and was dubbed “The Alabaster Mosque” because its walls were constructed from white alabaster scraped from the enormous Giza pyramids.
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization
To shed some light on Egypt’s historical and cultural heritage from all eras, the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) was established in 2017. About 50,000 items from more than 5000 years are kept at the museum. 18 remarkably well-preserved monarchs and 4 queens who date back more than 4500 years may be found in the hall of mummies.
Market in Khan El Khalili

Temple of Hatshepsut
The sacred temple of Hatshepsut represents the best in aesthetics, refinement, and beauty. Under the direction of the queen’s vizier Senemmut, it was carved out of the Deir el-Bahari cliffs in 1479 BC to serve as the epicenter of Hatshepsut’s royal mortuary cult, host the valley festival in the sanctuary of Amun, and develop into the most ideal illustration of ancient Egyptian classical architecture.
