Day 1: Tour to The Pyramids of Giza, Memphis, and Saqqara
The Giza Pyramid Complex is where the glory of the ancient Egyptian civilization for more than 4000 years touched the heavens. The Giza Pyramids complex comprises three main pyramids plus six smaller pyramids, the Great Sphinx and the Valley Temple.
The Great Pyramid is a monument out of our time and the last intact structure of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It was built with 2,300,000 pieces of limestone, each piece weighing 2.5 tons per 100,000 skilled workers. The pyramid is 146 meters tall and was the tallest building in the world for 3,800 years until Lincoln Cathedral was built in England in 1311.
The Great Sphinx is an ancient Egyptian God called “Hor-em-a jet,” which means Horus on the horizon, but today it is called “Abu el Hol” which means father of terror in Arabic.
He has the body of a lion (symbol of strength) and a human head (symbol of intelligence) with the face of Pharaoh Kefren (the founder of the second pyramid).
The sphinx measures 73 meters in length, 20 meters in height, and 19 meters in width. It was carved from a single piece of limestone.
The valley temple is a mortuary temple built of granite. It dates back to the time of the old empire (2686-2134 BC). It was built by the pharaoh kefren to carry out the process of mummification of the pharaoh. The temple is very well preserved.
The Saqqara Pyramid was a godsend that began the golden age of pyramid building in ancient Egypt. It was built by the legendary architect Imhotep who was deified in Greek times. The pyramid has a unique design in that it was built with six steps, 62 meters high, surrounded by the gigantic funerary complex of Pharaoh Djoser by a great wall.
The City of Memphis is the first official capital of Egypt. Pharaoh Mena built it in the year 3100 BC. The city was protected by the god Ptah (the ancient Egyptian god of creation and crafts).
The city contains the temple of “Hut-Ka-Ptah,” which means the house of the spirit of the god Ptah which was translated into Greek “Ay-gobos” (in etymology, it is the origin of the name of Egypt).
Day 2 Tour to The Egyptian Museum and Old Cairo
The Egyptian Museum is the magical gateway through more than 4,000 years of ancient Egypt. On the museum’s two floors, there are more than 120,000 pieces; made of gold, silver, precious stones, wood and stone, statues, jewels, and funerary objects such as the solid gold mask of Pharaoh Tutankhamun.
You can also see the mummies of the pharaohs.
National Museum of Civilization The exhibits of the National Museum of Civilization are in a main room that shows the important achievements of civilization, plus 6 other rooms show other thematic objects such as the Nile, society, culture, civilization, and the mummy room. real.
The Hanging Church is the holy Church of the Virgin Mary. It is the heart of Coptic culture in Cairo and one of Egypt’s most important Coptic sites.
It was the residence of the patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church for centuries. It was built on top of the southern wall of the Babylonian fortress in the 5th century.
In this church, we can see the artistic and architectural elements from the 7th to the 13th century AD. It has 110 icons, the oldest dating back to the 8th century.
It was built like Noah’s ark (a symbol of salvation in Christianity).
The Mosque of Amr Ibn El-As is where history in Egypt begins and one of the most important mosques in Egypt. The Mosque of Amr Ibn El-As was built in 641 AD and rebuilt many times during the Islamic times of Egypt, so it is a living example of the progress of Islamic architecture through the centuries.
The Ben Ezra Synagogue is the only tourist attraction. Dating back to the 9th century, it was built as a church before being transformed into a synagogue in 882 AD. That synagogue was the most important in Egypt until the year 1950.
The Khan El Khalili bazaar dates back to 970 AD when the city of Cairo was built. It was one of the main streets of the old city of Cairo. The whole street contains Islamic architecture and art and many shops and cafes with the same Islamic style.
comprises Khan El Khalili’s thousands of shops on dozens of small streets. Many of the shops even date back to the 14th century AD. Here you can shop for some of your favorite souvenirs before leaving Egypt.

Day 3 Luxor City Tour
Luxor is the concentration of ancient Thebes’ cultural relics. Egyptians often say: “If you haven’t been to Luxor, you haven’t been to Egypt.” Today we will start our tour here.
Located on the west bank of the Nile, the Valley of the kings is a mausoleum of many kings and royal family members. There are 64 pharaohs buried here from the 17th Dynasty to the 20th Dynasty, of which only 17 are open.
Temple of Hatshepsut It is the only female pharaoh temple in Egypt, located a few kilometers east of the Valley of the Kings. It is currently recognized
worldwide as a model of the full integration of ancient architecture and natural landscapes. It is a temple built by the famous Queen Hatshepsut and her father Thutmose I in EgHistHistoryory.
In series, two long and wide slopes connect three flat and wide colonnade buildings. The overall shape is simple and bright but shows majestic momentum.
Hatshepsut was the pharaoh of the 18th dynasty who created the prosperity of ancient Egypt and the only child of Thutmose I and the queen. She wears a fake beard, men’s clothes, a corset,
and a scepter in her hand, and she is extremely majestic.
This is the usual attire of the most powerful female pharaoh in ancient Egypt. Few have ever seen her in person, and her true appearance is as mysterious as her legend.
Day 4 Colossi of Memnon and Karnak and Luxor Temple
Colossi of Memnon These are two seated rock statues standing on the field between the West Bank of the Nile and the Valley of the Kings. These two giant statues of Memnon, originally standing in front of the gate of the first tower, are about 18 meters high. On the side relief of the base, there is a pattern of the Nile God Habi tying lotus and papyrus, which symbolizes the unity of upper and lower Egypt. It is said that The stone statue originally weighed 1,300 tons each, and small statues of Amenophis III’s mother and queen can be seen on both sides of the legs.
In 27 BC, the colossus was cracked by an earthquake, and since then, it has been crying every morning. The ancient Romans and Greeks believed that Memnon was crying for his mother.
After the fissure was mended in the 3rd century AD, the screams were no longer heard. Therefore, it is also called “singing stone”, which is quite mysterious.
Temple of Luxor It is located on the banks of the Nile River in Upper Egypt, more than 670 kilometers south of Cairo, on the southern half of Thebes,
the capital of the Middle Kingdom of Ancient Egypt and the New Kingdom. Amenhotep III built it, the ninth pharaoh of the eighteenth dynasty of ancient Egypt, worshiped the sun god Amon,
his wife Mut, and his son, the moon god. built. Ramesses II expanded the scale in the late eighteenth dynasty to form the scale preserved today. The temple is 262 meters long and 56 meters wide. It consists of a tower gate, a courtyard, a multi-column hall, and a temple. Entering the temple from the north-facing entrance, a causeway across the water leads to the Karnak Temple outside the temple. This causeway has become a highlight of Luxor after being renovated. Initially, there was an avenue with sphinxes on both sides of the outer wall of the temple leading to
Karnak Temple is where all prayers are answered. It was known as “Ipt-Sut,” which means the most selected sites or “Pr In,” which means the house of Amun, the main god of Egypt, during the new empire. It is one of the largest temples in the world; it contains sanctuaries of several gods such as Osiris, Isis, and Ptah, but the complex was dedicated mainly to the Theban triad (Amun, Mut, Junsu).

Day 5 Aswan City tour
After breakfast, we go to Cairo airport to take the flight to Aswan. Upon arrival, you will be escorted by your private tour guide to continue your tour to Cairo,
Aswan and Abu Simbel and visit a few Aswan attractions, starting with:
On this Egypt itinerary, you will visit The Aswan High Dam, a modern attraction built between the 1960s and 1970s during the tenure of President Gamal Abdel-Nasser. The design is the result of cooperation with the Moscow Institute of Water Projects to regulate the level of Nile flooding, generating hydroelectric power and providing a water reservoir for irrigation in an artificial lake, “Lake Nasser”, which threatened to destroy the temples of Abu Simbel and Philae.
The Unfinished Obelisk is an impressive pillar cut by the order of Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to adorn the entrance to the Karnak Temple. The obelisk was known as “takhenu,” meaning prick the sky. This obelisk shows us how obelisks were carved from scratch and give us an insight into construction techniques in ancient Egypt. The Unfinished Obelisk is 42 m long and weighs 1,200 tons. The obelisk broke during the separation phase and has remained in place.
Philae Temple It is one of the scenarios of the myth of Isis and Osiris that tells that Osiris (husband of Isis) was killed by his brother “Set” out of pure hatred and envy. In the end, Osiris was resurrected and became the king of the afterlife. Set was defeated by Horus (the son of Isis and Osiris), who established a new era of peace, prosperity, and justice. The temple was relocated in the sixties by a UNESCO mission in charge of rescuing the temples threatened by the construction of La Alta Presa.
The Abu Simbel Temple served as the guard of the southern border and final gate of Egypt since its construction in the New Kingdom (1570–1050 BC) by King Ramses II (1279–1213 BC)
to immortalize his legacy forever. Abu Simbel consists of two temples; the largest belongs to Ramses II; the sun festival is celebrated every year on February 22 and October 22 when the sun’s rays illuminate the four statues of the sanctuary (Ramesses, Ptah, Amun, and Ra). While the small temple was dedicated to his beloved wife, Queen Nefertari.
The two temples were part of the efforts of a rescue mission that succeeded in carrying out, in the mid-1960s, the most challenging archaeological history of UNESCO.
Day 6 – Alexandria Day Tour
In our Egypt itinerary, you will visit The Library of Alexandria In recognition of this historical and cultural hub, a brand-new library was conceived and built-in 1987. UNESCO played a crucial role in garnering contributions from other nations to build the new Alexandrian Library. The doors first opened in 2002.
National Museum of Alexandria The building that now houses the museum was formerly the palace of Governor Al-Saad Bassili and was constructed in 1926. It is a white home in the Italianate style, historically known as the gathering spot for Alexandria’s upper-class Egyptians. The museum is composed of three levels, and the narrative for each level focuses on a different period in world history.
Archaeological site Kom the Dekka This is an excavation site in a residential neighborhood that dates back to the Greco-Roman period. The excavation
has made it possible to distinguish between several components of this area, including the baths, the cisterns, some villas, and even a tiny amphitheater.
A little-known fact: the best way to gauge the quality of the acoustics in an amphitheater is to speak while standing in the center of the structure.
Day 7 Qaitbay Citadel, The Catacombs, and Pompey’s Pillar
Qaitbay Citadel is a castle that served as a defense structure and was constructed in the 15th century (quite recently if we compare it with all the monuments we are talking about).
It may be found in the port of Faro, on the island of Faro. This castle was constructed in 1477 by Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf al-Din Qa’it Bay as part of his defensive plan against the Ottoman Empire, which posed a threat to the country.
The Catacombs This monument is unique in that there is only one of its kind in all of Egypt. A necropolis dating back to the 2nd century AD that is capable of combining
Hellenistic and Roman artistic elements with Pharaonic Ancient Egyptian design. It has many Greek and Roman artifacts and decorations between the three levels,
making it a marvel of medieval times.
Pompey’s Pillar It is 28 meters high and made of pure red granite. On its western side is a Greek inscription dedicated to the Roman Emperor Diocletian.
That triumphal column is considered the largest to have been built outside Rome or Constantinople. It was built in honor of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who freed the besieged city and gave wheat to the people. It is called Pompey’s Pillar because, at the time of the crusades, it was believed that the remains of the Roman commander were.
Pompey was placed on top of the capital of the column.
