Day Two: A tour of Memphis, Sakkara, and the Pyramids
After breakfast, you’ll meet your own tour guide to start your 7-day trip to Cairo and Hurghada by visiting the most notable sites of the ancient Egyptian Civilization, beginning with:
Egyptian Pyramids in Giza
The Giza Pyramids Complex, which goes back more than 4000 years and includes the three major pyramids, six smaller pyramids, the great sphinx, and the valley temple, is home to the oldest marvel in existence.
The Great Pyramid
One of the most well-known objects on the planet is the Great Pyramid of Khufu, which dates to 2580 BC, making it more than 4500 years old. It was one of the largest buildings in the world when it was completed in 20 years utilizing 2,300,000 pieces of limestone. Its height of 147 meters (481 feet) made it the highest structure in the world for 3800 years, until the Lincoln Cathedral in England was built in 1311. The origin, function, and magnificent construction of the pyramid are the subject of several fringe ideas.
The Great Sphinx
Since ancient times, Egypt has only had one guardian: the Great Sphinx. Since there is still much mystery surrounding the monument’s age, function, and origin, it has inspired innumerable dreamers and travelers throughout the years and continues to do so now. It is the oldest statue on the whole globe. It is 73 meters (240 feet) tall, 19 meters (66 feet) wide, and is shaped after the mythological creature known as the sphinx, which has a lion’s body and a man’s head—likely king Khafre—as a sign of strength and wisdom.
The Valley Temple
The Valley Temple is one of the best-preserved structures of the ancient Egyptian civilization, made entirely of limestone and granite and holding amazing diorite statues of king Chephren in addition to showcasing a great deal of information about the ritual burial practices of that time. Mummification was first used in Egypt during the Old Kingdom (2686–2181 BC), a challenging time for the mummification process.
Proceed to a neighborhood eatery in Cairo for lunch. Then, we’ll go over to see:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara
As the first large-cut stone building, the Saqqara Step Pyramid is a unique structure in the globe. It was constructed by Pharaoh Djoser’s wisecracking vizier Imhotep. With six stairs and a height of 62 meters, it has a distinctive design. The complex that surrounds the pyramid was the first of its type and has exquisite ornamentation and imposing ceremonial buildings, ushering in the golden era of architecture.
Memphis City, established by King Menes to be the life of the two kingdoms and its first formal capital, was renowned for being a country of endurance and beauty. The patron deity of creation and art, Ptah, resides there. It is home to several monuments going back more than 4,000 years to prominent figures from ancient Egypt, including Ramses II, as well as magnificent temples dedicated to gods and goddesses like Aton and Hathor.
After that, we return you to your hotel for the night.
Day 3: Visit the Egyptian Museum and the Old Cairo Landmarks

In Cairo, lunch will be provided at a neighborhood eatery before the tour.
Citadel of Salah El Din
The Salah El-Din Citadel was built by the great conqueror Salah El-Din in 1182 AD, earning it the nickname “Cairo Citadel” for how it appears and totally looms over the whole city. Late in the 19th century, it was transformed into the government’s seat of power after serving as the heart of the rule and a strong defensive bastion against Napoleon’s French invasion and the Crusaders. A courtroom, an armory, access points, four palaces, a sizable terrace, and multiple gateways mosques with beautiful designs are all located inside the citadel.
Mosque of Mohamed Ali
The Mohamed Ali Mosque sometimes referred to as the alabaster mosque, is a magnificent piece of architectural art. Between 1830 and 1848 AD, it was built as a copy of the blue mosque in Istanbul and as a protest against Ottoman Empire royal law, which forbade anybody other than the Turkish sultan from building mosques with more than two minarets. With its magnificent dome, exquisite finishing, and Ottoman-style construction with French rococo influences, the mosque is spectacular.

Market in Khan El Khalili
