Day 1: Welcome to the Pharaohs’ Land.
When your plane arrives in Egypt, our authorized representative will greet you there and help you with the formalities and travel documentation while carrying a sign with our business name, “Egypt Fun Tours” Then, he will hand you off to your private tour guide outside the airport so you may be driven in a luxury private car with air conditioning to a five-star hotel in Cairo to check-in.

You’ll spend the night at your Cairo hotel.
Day Two: Visit the Museum and Pyramids of Giza
Your knowledgeable tour guide will accompany you after breakfast as you see Cairo’s most ancient historical sites, including:
Giza Pyramids Complex
The complex of the Giza Pyramids dates to the fourth dynasty. The complex is made up of three fabled pyramids that served as the last resting places for the most well-known kings of the fourth dynasty. The greatest of these pyramids belonged to Pharaoh Khufu, and it was regarded as the highest construction in prehistoric times.
The Great Sphinx
The Valley Temple
Enjoy your meal in a fancy restaurant, after which you’ll see:
The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum houses more than 250,000 ancient Egyptian antiquities and is Egypt’s most monumental exhibition. The Great Tutankhamun’s famous collection is another reason why it is regarded as the home of priceless antiques.
You’ll go back to your hotel.
Day three: a day trip to Alexandria
After breakfast at the hotel, a private A/C car will pick you up for a wonderful day tour to the well-known sites in Alexandria, such as:
Kom El Shoqafa’s catacombs
The Kom El Shoqafa Catacombs are a sizable royal cemetery that dates to the second century AD. The complex has an amazing fusion of Roman-style sculptures and tombs with wall decorations inspired by pharaonic art.
The enormous 30-meter-tall Pompey pillar is located above the historic town of Rhakotis. The column has emerged from the Temple of Serapeum, which was built from Aswan red granite.
Citadel of Qaitbay
The most impressive structure in Alexandria, the Qaitbay Citadel, dates to the 1480s. Sultan Al-Ashraf Qaitbey built this enormous castle to stave off Ottoman invasions.
After a delicious lunch at a fish restaurant, you’ll go to see:
One of the most important 21st-century accomplishments is the Alexandria Library, which has more than 10 million volumes in all subject areas as well as a conference center and other specialist libraries.
