What to Expect
Be a part of this amazing 1-day tour to Alexandria in Egypt and see the incredible Cairo pyramids and Egypt Museum.
The tour begins with a tour representative picking guests up from Alexandria Port by the cruise exit door.
Guests enjoy a shore excursion and day trip from Alexandria to Cairo. This journey is approximately 2.5 hours by a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle.
Along the way a panoramic view of the majestic Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinus begins the day’s excitement. Guests then proceed to visit the spellbinding Great Sphinx, which consists of the massive head of a pharaoh on a lion's body - all carved completely out of stone. The Sphinx dates back to the time of Chephren. This section of the tour also includes an interesting visit to the famous Valley Temple, which belongs to the Pyramids of Chefren.
A delicious lunch is served at a local authentic restaurant.
Continue on to the Egyptian Museum, which features artifacts from the Pharaonic period. The museum displays a rare collection of 5000 years of art which is considered to be the largest most precious collection of Egyptian art in the whole world. Over 250,000 genuine artifacts are presented.
The museum also includes an exhibit specifically dedicated to Tutankhamen. This incredible collection of treasure, gold and jewelry was enclosed in his tomb for over 3,500 years before it was discovered in the 1920s when his tomb was first excavated.
Before beginning the return trip to Alexandria, guests will stop at a Papyrus Institute where they have the opportunity to shop for interesting souvenirs of Cairo & Egypt to take back on the journey home.
