Detailed itinerary of the 9 Days Tour Itinerary to The Highlights of Egypt
Day 1: Welcome to Egypt: Welcome to the “Land of the Pharaohs.” Our representative will greet you at the Cairo airport, assist you with the passport requirements, and then drive you in a private, air-conditioned vehicle to a 5-star hotel in Cairo so you can check in. Your tour guide will be with you as you enjoy a dinner cruise with a view of the Nile in the evening. You will then go back to the hotel for the night.
Day 2: Explore the Giza Pyramids: After breakfast at your hotel, meet your tour guide to begin your nine-day journey across Egypt by gazing at one of the seven wonders of the world:
Egyptian Pyramids in Giza
Explore the vast ancient Egyptian civilization on the Giza plateau, capture some historical images there, and let the greatness and strength of the Egyptian pharaohs liberate your spirit. Six smaller pyramids, the large sphinx, the Valley Temple, and three major pyramids make up the complex. The structure is 2400 years old, from the 4th dynasty.
The Great Pyramid
The only preserved pyramid among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, it is the oldest and biggest of the three pyramids on the Giza plateau. King Khufu owns the Pyramid. The great pyramid is 147 meters tall, was erected over 20 years, and 2,300,000 stones were utilized in its construction. One of the greatest accomplishments of the ancient Egyptians was this.
The Great Sphinx
The Sphinx, which is owned by King Chephren and is 73 meters long, 19 meters broad, and 20 meters tall, is the biggest statue in the world. The monument has the earliest known sculpture in it. It was constructed because the ancient Egyptians thought it would make them dread their enemies and keep the three Pyramids safe.
The Valley Temple
The sole one still standing on the Giza plateau is a granite funerary temple that the Ancient Egyptians used for the mummification process.
Your lunch will be provided at a Cairo restaurant when your trip to see the Giza Pyramids has concluded. Next, go to Egypt’s ancient pyramids.
Step Pyramid of Saqqara
The Sakkara step pyramid is made up of 6 steps that are stacked on top of one another and have a height of 62 meters. It is regarded as the first large-scale cut-stone building and dates back to the time of King Djoser, who ruled Egypt in the 27th century B.C.
We will then return you to your hotel in Cairo so you may spend the night there.
Day 3: Visit the Attractions in Alexandria

a 25-meter-tall (82-foot) granite column erected as a monument to Emperor Diocletian, who liberated the besieged city and provided food for its hungry citizens.

The Unfinished Obelisk
It was built by Queen Hatshepsut (1508 1458 BC) to accompany the Lateran Obelisk, which was initially located at Karnak and was eventually transported to the Lateran Palace in Rome. It was the biggest obelisk in antiquity.
Temple of Philae
Isis, the goddess of love and beauty, is honored in the Philae Temple. As part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign initiative, the temple complex was disassembled and moved to the adjacent island of Agilkia Island to safeguard it and other sites before the Aswan High Dam was finished in 1970.

The tombs were fully furnished with everything a monarch may want in the afterlife in terms of material things. The majority of the interior decorations are still in good condition. During your travel to Egypt, you must see the Valley of the Kings.
Temple of Hatshepsut
One of the most stunning and well-preserved of all the Egyptian temples is Queen Hatshepsut Temple. The temple was constructed on three levels, connected by two large ramps in the middle.
