What to Expect
Spend the day in Cairo on this full-day private shore excursion from the Alexandria Port.

In the morning you will be picked up from your cruise by an Egyptologist guide who will accompany you to the famous Giza Plateau, home of Egypt’s greatest attractions. Here you will visit the Great Pyramids, one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. View the Great Pyramid of Cheops, middle pyramids of Chephren, and the little one of Mykerinos, as well as the mysterious Sphinx, the Father of Terror for the ancient pharaohs.

The tour includes a visit to the valley temple facing the Great Sphinx. You will be having lunch on the way, which provides an opportunity to try authentic Egyptian food. Later on you will be driven to see the world-renowned Museum of Egyptian Antiquities that was built in the neo-classical style and designed by the French architect Marcel Dourgnon. This museum exhibits a collection of more than 120,000 masterpieces ranging from the pre-dynastic era, Pharaonic era to the Greco-roman period in Egypt.

Next, you will ride a felucca on the Nile. Continue the tour to old Cairo, where you will stop by the Hanging Church, Mary Gerges Church, and Ben Ezra Synagogue.
