Tour Plan

01

Your Best of Egypt Tour Begins

When you arrive in Cairo we will have a business representative and a driver waiting for you at the airport, regardless of what time your airline arrives. They will help you with your bags and then bring you to your hotel in a nice air-conditioned car. After you have checked in, your tour manager will explain your schedule with you and answer any questions you may have. He will also confirm pick up times for your different excursions, and then you will be left in peace to spend the remainder of the day as you desire. Enjoy a complimentary "Welcome" drink on us.

02

Tour of the Pyramids

Our English-speaking Egyptologist guide will meet you at your Cairo hotel for breakfast before taking you to the "Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure" Pyramids of Giza, where the grandeur has been personified in three pyramids and a limestone statue of Sphinx guards the whole area. After that, have lunch at a nearby restaurant. Then you'll go to Sakkara, where King Djoser's Step Pyramid will be a big surprise. The king Djoser told his best architect, Imhotep, to make something special so that the king could be buried there. This beautiful pyramid is what Imhotep came up with. So, the well-known architect builds the Step Pyramid, which surprised the king a lot at the time because it was something new. The Open Air Museum in Memphis has many wonderful things from the time of King Ramses II. Your next stop will be Memphis, which was the capital of the Old Kingdom. You will spend the night in Cairo.

Sightseeing in Cairo

Breakfast at the hotel. Our English-speaking Egyptologist tour guide will next meet you and take you to the Egyptian Museum, one of the world's most significant museums, where you can see the famous king Tutankhamen's tomb and other Pharaonic structures. You'll also get to see the Mummies' Room, which is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. As a tourist, you'll get the opportunity to witness the genuine pharaohs in their entirety. We had lunch at a small tavern. Before heading into the Old Cairo neighborhood, you'll want to stop at Salah El-Din Citadel, which served as Egypt's center of authority for more than 700 years. A stop in Khan El Khalili, one of the most beautiful bazaars in the Middle East, will be next on our itinerary. You will then return to your hotel in Cairo for the night.

Fly to Luxor for Nile Cruise

After breakfast and checking out of your hotel in Cairo, you'll be driven to the airport to catch a flight to Luxor, where you'll be met by a representative and driven in a private A/C van to your Nile Cruise. To leave on time, you have to be there before 12 o'clock. You'll spend the afternoon exploring the East Bank of Luxor, which has the huge Karnak Temples Complex, which is one of the biggest buildings ever made by humans. Amun Ra's temple was thought to be the most important building in the Middle Kingdom because it was where god lived on earth. However, there are signs that it was built on top of structures from the 3rd dynasty. The next place you'll visit is the Temple of Luxor, which was started by a member of the 12th Dynasty and finished by Ramses II, Egypt's most famous ruler. Like Karnak, this temple was dedicated to Amun Re, the main god of ancient Thebes. When your day of sight-seeing is over, you'll be taken back to the ship so you can take it easy. At night, they will put on shows about Egyptian culture. We'll stay the night in Luxor, where dinner and a bed will be ready for us.

To start your amazing tour of Thebes, the holy region, you will go to the wet bank of Luxor to see the Valley of the Kings, a royal cemetery for ancient Egyptian kings and rulers, and the tomb of King Tut Ankh Amun. Your next stop will be Haowrd Carter House, where you can see where the man who found King Tut's tomb used to live. After that, you can see the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut in Deir El Bahari. This temple is thought to be one of the best examples of ancient Egyptian architecture because it was built right into the mountain. Your trip will end at the Colossi of Memnon, which was built by Amenhotep III. On the way to Essna, you'll eat lunch on the ship and then go through the lock (just like Panama Canal locks). You can do whatever you want with the time. On the ship, we had dinner and slept for the night.
