Day 1:  CAIRO
After arrival at Cairo Airport you will be transferred to the hotel. You will have time at leisure to get a head start on exploring this city of wonders.

Overnight: Cairo

Day 2:  CAIRO
Today will be spent exploring the city of Cairo starting with a tour of the Egyptian Museum with the treasures from the Tut-Ankh-Amun burial site. Then the tour will continue to the Citadel from where one can enjoy a spectacular view of Cairo. Later you will visit the Alabaster Mosque, which adds a wonderful picture-postcard element to Cairo’s skyline. You will be given some time at leisure for shopping in the famous Khan-el-Khalili bazaar which is a labyrinth of cobbled alleyways. This vast bazaar tempts the senses with spices, perfume and glittering gold, silver and brass.

Day 3:  CAIRO – MEMPHIS – SAKKARA – CAIRO
On this day you will finally be able to satisfy your curiosity regarding the Pyramid. But first you will visit Memphis, the ancient capital of the Old Kingdom of Egypt. It is the home of a colossal Statue of Ramesses II and the Alabaster Sphinx. Then you will continue to the “Cemetery City” of Sakkara and view the Step Pyramid of King Zoser, the oldest of all Pyramids. In the afternoon you will visit the Great Pyramids of Giza, the only present-day survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the image which immediately pops into your head when you think of Egypt. Nearby, the mystical Sphinx surveys the plains of Giza. The 20m high man-animal Sphinx, created as a “living image of the sun-god”, was built by Chephren to guard the entrance to the Pyramids.
