What to Expect
Day 1: Tour the Pyramids and visit the Egyptian Museum
After being picked up from Alexandria Port, your journey begins to Cairo in a private air-conditioned vehicle. Stop by to marvel at the Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinus, followed by the famous Great Sphinx and the Valley Temple. These pyramids once belonged to Chephren, the famous Egyptian pharaoh of the Fourth dynasty.
Next, soak up the educational history at the Egyptian Museum, and encounter artefacts from the Pharaonic period. The museum displays a rare collection of 5000 years’ worth of art, considered to be the largest collection of Egyptian art in the world. Over 250,000 genuine artefacts are displayed here, including a collection of treasures, gold and jewellery that was stowed in Tutankhamen’s tomb for over 3,500 years until excavation in the 1920s.
Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in Cairo, after which you will have the option to be driven to your hotel where you will be spending the night. Alternatively, shopping tours of Cairo will be available, or you may choose to enjoy a 2-hour dinner cruise on the River Nile.
Day 02: Ancient Alexandria
Wake up to breakfast in the hotel, then take off towards Alexandria. Explore an early Roman Catacomb, which was discovered in 1900 after 12 years of searching! Continue to visit the Citadel of Quaitbay, a 15th Century defence fortress built upon the ruins of the famous Alexandria Lighthouse. Admire the Alexandria library from the outside, followed by lunch and the final leg of your return journey to Alexandria Port, where you will be dropped off.
