What to Expect
A Private Tours Egypt representative will meet you by the cruise exit door at the Alexandria port, and you’ll depart on this full-day shore excursion of ancient Egypt.

You’ll travel by air-conditioned vehicle on a 3-hour drive south, toward Cairo. Stop at Dahshur, located around 10 kilometers to the south of Sakkara. See the Bent Pyramid, and also the Red Pyramid which was never completed. Archaeological research shows that the Red Pyramid dates back to the 4th Dynasty, but its intended purpose is not known.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to Memphis, the capital of Egypt during the Old Kingdom. It was the center of power and culture for over 3,000 years and was characterized by outstanding architectural achievements. Memphis is thought to have been the world’s largest city from its foundation until around 2250 B.C.

Have lunch at a local restaurant, at a time of your choosing. Afterwards, you’ll continue on to see the Step Pyramid of Djoser, the oldest major stone structure in the world. It was built for King Djoser in around 2630 B.C.

At the end of the tour you’ll be transferred back to the Alexandria cruise port.

Know Before You Go
Egypt now is as secure as it has always been. This is why many tourists state that they feel even more secure in Egypt than in their homeland.

Security for all tourists arriving in Egypt is provided by the Egyptian government. There will be a guard on the bus and police/army vehicles in front and behind, all organized by the authorities.

Egypt is proud to have one of the lowest crime rates in the world and travelers are always safe in Egypt if they take the same sensible precautions that apply to destinations around the world.
