Day Two: Visit Memphis, Sakkara, and the Giza Pyramids
After savoring your breakfast, you’ll start your 5-day trip to Cairo and Luxor, where you’ll see the eternal sights of this sacred nation by going to:
Giza Pyramids Complex
One of the most well-known and well-known locations in the world, the Giza Pyramids Complex is a remarkable testament to the magnificence of ancient Egyptian culture. It is one of the oldest monuments in history and has been situated in the enigmatic western desert for the past 4,000 years. The whole complex comprises of three major pyramids—Khafre, Khufu, and Menkaure—six smaller pyramids, the magnificent sphinx, who served as Egypt’s great guardian, and the valley temple, which was used to safeguard the history and legacies of the kings and queens for endless centuries.
The Great Pyramid
One of the oldest and biggest buildings in history and on the planet, the Great Pyramid of Khufu is the last of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World to still be intact. The pyramid was created by King Khufu’s vizier Hemiunu to be 147 meters (481 feet) tall, making it the highest structure in the world for 3800 years until the Lincoln Cathedral in England was built in 1311. It is more than 4500 years old and dates to 2580 BC.
The Great Sphinx
The Great Sphinx is the largest and oldest statue in recorded history. It is modeled after the fabled monster known as the Sphinx, which has a lion’s body and a man’s head (perhaps King Khafre’s head) as a sign of strength and knowledge. In Arabic, it is known as Abu Al-Hawl, which translates to “The Father of Terror,” and in the past, it was known as “Hor-em-Akhet,” which translates to “Horus of the Horizon.” It was cut out of single limestone rock and measures 73 meters (240 feet) and 19 meters (66 feet) in height.
The Valley Temple
The Valley Temple is as ancient as the Giza Pyramids; it was built during the Old Kingdom of Egypt (2686–2134 BC), and it served as the site of mummification. Made completely of limestone and granite, it is one of the best-preserved constructions from the ancient Egyptian civilization and contains stunning Chephren diorite figures.
Proceed to a neighborhood eatery in Cairo for lunch. Next, go to visit:
Saqqara Step Pyramid
The Saqqara Step Pyramid, which was built in Egypt for the first time in 2700, is attributed to ushering in the era of building. It was constructed by the fabled Imhotep, vizier of Pharaoh Djoser. The pyramid has a distinctive form since it has six steps, is 62 meters high, and is encircled by a wall that is 10.5 meters high and has 14 entrances. The pyramid is encircled by a distinctive complex that was the first of its type and has exquisite ornamentation and imposing ceremonial buildings that are still in excellent shape.
Then go to the first Egyptian capital in antiquity:
City of Memphis
King Menes established Memphis city as Egypt’s first recognized capital to unite the two nations. It is renowned for being the country of endurance and beauty, the epicenter of rule, commerce, art, and religion, and the setting for Ptah’s vision, direction, and guardianship (the Patron of Craftsmen). It is home to several ancient Egyptian remains that date back more than 4,000 years, including those of Ramses II and huge temples to the gods Aton and Hathor.
Finally, we return you to your hotel so you may spend the night in Cairo.
Day Three: Sightseeing tour of Old Cairo
With your tour guide by your side, you will enter “The City of Minarets” after breakfast and experience all of Cairo’s major sites, beginning with:
The Egyptian Museum
It is one of the largest museums in the world and has many magnificent objects and structures that date back more than 4000 years from all different historical eras, including ancient Egyptian, Greek, Coptic, and Islamic ages. More than 150,000 real artifacts, including sculptures, jewelry, funerary items like King Tutankhamen’s riches, and many on exhibit mummies, are housed inside the two levels of the museum. These artifacts range from lavish ones like gold or jewels to simple ones like wood or stone.
In Cairo, lunch will be provided in a neighborhood eatery before visiting:
Citadel of Salah El Din
The Salah El-Din Citadel, also known as the Cairo Citadel, has seen all that has occurred in this eternal city. Since Salah El-Din, the great conquistador, finished the building in 1182 A.D., it has provided a panoramic view of the whole city of Cairo. Against the Crusaders and Napoleon’s French invasion, it functioned as a strong fortification and seat of government. Late in the 19th century, it became the government’s administrative center, where it remained for more than 700 years.
Mosque of Mohamed Ali
Because of its distinctive style and copious use of marble, the lovely Mohamed Ali Mosque has earned the nickname “The Alabaster Mosque.” Between 1830 and 1848 AD, it was built to be a duplicate of the blue mosque in Istanbul and serve as a protest against the Ottoman Empire. The mosque’s rococo-inspired ottoman architecture, opulent crimson, green, and gold decorations, and magnificently entrancing dome make it utterly magical.
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) is a surreal link between predynastic and modern and current eras via art and recollections. With the aid of the most cutting-edge museological techniques, the museum will employ the simplest and most wonderful means to present all the great art, history, and culture of Egypt that date back more than 4000 years.
Finalize your Cairo sightseeing by stopping at:
Market in Khan El Khalili
Given that Khan El Khalili is the oldest market in the area and dates back to 970 AD, it is referred to as the “golden brick road” of the Middle East. The street is still in use today and has everything a traveler might want in addition to all the lovely cafes and stores that have been there for hundreds of years. The beautiful Islamic buildings and street decorations are all alluring and are still in fantastic shape today.
We will take you to the airport in Cairo after the day so you can fly to Luxor, where you will be met by one of our representatives and taken to a five-star hotel for the night.
Day Four: Visit the Attractions in Luxor
The second portion of your 5-day Cairo & Luxor trip will be completed by seeing the following places on Day Four after you have breakfast in the early morning at your hotel, check out, and meet with your private tour guide.
The Kings’ Valley
For the greatest kings and queens of Egypt’s New Kingdom, the Valley of the Kings served as a ladder to heaven and a gate to the afterlife (1570-1070 BC). Given that UNESCO designated it as a World Heritage Site in 1979, it is one of the most significant archaeological sites on the whole planet. It has 63 tombs that are each packed with wonderful objects, decorations, and the bones of pharaohs like Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and Ramses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX, X), and the well-known boy-king Tutankhamen.
Temple of Hatshepsut
Hatshepsut Temple is the pinnacle of beauty, the most accurate depiction of the splendor of the new kingdom (1550–1070 BC), and it displays the vision and glory of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the most successful monarchs in the annals of Ancient Egypt. Senenmut, the chancellor of Hatshepsut, planned it in 1479 BC, and it took 15 years to build. The idea of classical architecture served as the foundation for the temple’s design. The temple was once known as Djeser-Djeseru and is currently known as Deir El-Bahari (Holy of Holies). It has some of Egypt’s most stunning decorations and sculptures.
The enormous Colossi of Memnon are regarded as Luxor’s protectors. The colossi are made up of two pieces of quartzite sandstone that are 18 meters (60 feet) tall, weigh 720 tonnes each, and are shaped like Amenhotep III (1386-1350). A significant earthquake that occurred in 27 BC severely destroyed the colossi, but they were reconstructed in 199 AD. The sculptures gained notoriety during the Greco-Roman era because of the legend of The Vocal Memnon, who sang sometimes at dawn in a sobbing sound that was only the sound of the wind blowing through the statue.
Your excursion begins with a boat ride along the Nile to the island where lunch will be provided before continuing to:
Temple of Karnak
In addition to being the largest open-air museum in the world, the Karnak Temple was also known as Ipet-isu, which means The Most Selected Of Places, and the Pr-Imn House Of Amon. It is the oldest man-made religious structure in history, dating back more than 4,000 years. It served as the focal point of all of ancient Egypt’s religious devotion. The Theban triad included God Amun, his wife, the Goddess of Justice Mut, and their son, the Moon God Khnsou, as well as other gods including Osiris, Montu, Ptah, and Isis, who received direct homage from this work.
We will take you to the airport in Luxor at the end of the day so you can fly back to Cairo for the night.
