Today you begin your Egypt journey by boarding your international flight to Cairo. On reaching Cairo, you will meet your private guide at the airport and transferred to the hotel.
Popularly known as the City of a Thousand Minarets, the capital city of Egypt, Cairo is a place of extremes, packed with medieval landmarks, growling traffic, baroque mosques, and sparkling modern skyscrapers.
The greater metropolitan area of Cairo is the second-largest in Africa, providing a home for more than 20 million people. Filled with sounds, sights, and smells, many tourists find Cairo's intense energy overwhelming. However, for those with a certain amount of patience and a sense of humor, it fosters a treasure trove of experiences that cannot be recreated anywhere else.
This morning, get ready for a full day tour of the pyramids at Giza, Dashur, and Saqqara. Make your way to the Bent Pyramid at Dashur, which is one of the earliest examples of Pyramid architecture before heading back to Cairo, visiting the behemoths at Giza and the stepped pyramid of Saqqara.
Today, enjoy a full day tour around Cairo accompanied by your private guide. Undoubtedly the attraction is viewing the treasures of the Egyptian Museum. Later, make your way to the Citadel for the amazing views over the city, the back streets of Coptic Cairo and the forthright Hanging Church.
One of the most significant and best-loved medieval sights of Egypt, Luxor is often referred to as the world's greatest open-air museum. The modern city of Luxor is constructed on and around the site of the medieval city of Thebes, which historians approximate to have been inhabited since 3,200 BC. It is also home to the Karnak temple complex, which acted as the main place of worship for the Thebans. The three sites together have been drawing visitors since the Greco-Roman times, all of them attracted by the area's splendid collection of medieval temples and monuments.
