It took 20 years to build in 2580 BC, utilizing 2,300,000 2.5-ton limestone stones and a staff of roughly 100,000 free skilled craftsmen. With a height of 147 meters (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the world’s tallest structure for 3800 years, until the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1311. Its advanced complicated interior has piqued the attention and piqued the curiosity of people all over the globe.
The Great Sphinx
It’s a legendary champion who was formerly 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 Arabic. It is shaped like the sphinx, a legendary monster with the body of a lion and the head of a man thought to be King Khafre, to represent his strength and intelligence. The sphinx, which stands at 73 meters (240 feet) tall and 19 meters (66 feet) wide, was carved out of a single massive limestone boulder.
The Valley Temple
It was built during Egypt’s old monarchy (2686 2134 BC) within the complex, and because of the ancient Egyptians’ building abilities, the valley is one of the best-preserved archeological sites of the ancient Egyptian civilization. It was a key source of knowledge regarding the mummification process and ancient Egyptian burial customs.
After that, join your tour guide for a great lunch at a luxurious Pyramids / Nile view restaurant and finish your day in Cairo by visiting:
Memphis was built by King Menes Narmer to be the life of the two lands in 2925 BC, and it is where the heritage of ancient Egypt made its initial steps as the official capital of Egypt. It was the abode of the deity Ptah, patron of creativity and art, and was known as the Land of Endurance and Beauty. 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 term Egypt.

The Unfinished Obelisk
The Unfinished Obelisk, which stands tall as a sign of majesty, was erected at the gateway to Karnak temple by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC). It was known as “Tekhenu,” which means “To Pierce the Sky,” and displayed how obelisks were built. It would have stood 42 meters tall and weighed 1200 tons, but the obelisk was fractured during construction, forcing it to stay in the same spot till today.

It is one of the world’s most significant religious man-made structures, and it served as the worship center for countless deities for over 1500 years, including the great Osiris, Montu, Ptah, and Isis, but the complex was primarily dedicated to the Theban triad, which consisted of God Amun, his wife the Goddess of Justice Mut, and his son the moon god Khnsou.

Its architecture is based on the new kingdom’s Classical Architecture style, and it houses some of ancient Egypt’s most fascinating treasures and statuary.
The Kings’ Valley
It was the burial place for the Egyptian kings and queens of the new kingdom (1570-1070 BC). It contains 63 tombs filled with countless treasures, artifacts, statues, enchanting decorations, and the remains of pharaohs such as Rameses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, IX, X), Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and Tutankhamun, In 1979, UNESCO designated the Valley of the Kings as a World Heritage Site.

A huge earthquake in 27 BC severely destroyed the colossi, which were reconstructed in 199 AD. During the Greco-Roman era, the sculptures were well-known due to the Vocal Memnon phenomenon, produced by singing at dawn from time to time, which was nothing more than the sound of the wind blowing through the statue.
Then return to your Luxor hotel for the night.
Day 7: Take in the Must-See Old Cairo Attractions
Day seven will begin with breakfast and check-out from your Luxor hotel, followed by a flight to Cairo to finish your 9-day Egypt luxury itinerary by seeing some of Cairo’s major tourist sites, including:

It is the tallest monolithic column ever erected outside of Rome, standing 28 meters tall and 2.7 meters wide and composed completely of solid red granite, with a Greek inscription dedicated to Emperor Diocletian carved on its western top side.
