Day 1 : Giza Pyramids, Saqqara and Egyptian museum

In the morning, our tour guide will meet and accompany you to witness the glory of the old kingdom located in Giza Plateau. Start your private tour by discovering the last remaining ancient wonder of the world, the Pyramids of Giza, Cheops, Mykerinus, and Chephren. Guided by our expert Egyptologist, learn the history of this miraculous edifice that still keeps the mystery of their construction. From the Plateau, enjoy the unique view of the Pyramids emerging from the golden sand of Giza. It’s the moment to take pictures of your life! Before leaving the site, let’s greet Abu El Hol, the 3000 years old great Sphinx.

Reach now the second step of your journey, the Pyramid of Saqqara also know as the Pyramid of Djoser. Saqqara is the vast necropolis of ancient Memphis. It’s on this site that King Djoser built his tomb more than 4000 years ago. It was the first time in history that the pyramidal shape was used to build a tomb of a kind.

After lunch, finish your day by visiting the Museum of Cairo which contains the most beautiful artifacts of Ancient Egypt, royal mummies, and the amazing treasure of King Tutankhamun.

Our guide will finally accompany you back to your hotel.

Day 2 : Islamic and Coptic Cairo.

Travel back to time by visiting the medieval district of Cairo. Start your day with a prodigious sample of Ottoman architecture, the Alabaster mosque. Constructed by Muhammad Ali Pasha between 1830 and 1848 as a tribute to his oldest son who died in 1816, the Alabaster mosque is mostly made of limestone which plausibly comes from the Pyramids of Giza.

Visit one of the most beautiful and impressive historic construction of the Mamluk epoch, Sultan Hassan Mosque. It’s an Islamic complex composed of a mosque and a madrassa where the 4 Islamic schools of thought used to be taught.

Proceed to the Coptic part of the city and pay attention to Ben Ezra Synagogue. Famous for its Geniza, this temple is believed to have been built where Moses was found by Pharaoh’s daughter when he was a baby.

Hanged above the gate of the old Babylone Fortress, the Hanging church seeks to be admired. Proceed inside this holy edifice and examine the 13 pillars the whole nave stands on.

Stroll along El Moez street and admire the beautiful buildings, madrassas (Koran schools), mosques, and traditional houses. You might visit one of them, Bayt El Suheymi or Sultan Qalawun Complex

Then, make your way through the streets of Khan El Khalili. Built-in the 14th century this souk is still the first choice for all locals who want to buy gold. Spices, soap, handmade souvenirs.

Our guide will finally accompany you back to your hotel.
