Departure : Arrive to Egypt (Cairo) and Join the Tour

Egypt, a country linking northeast Africa with the Middle East, dates to the time of the pharaohs. Millennia-old monuments sit along the fertile Nile River Valley, including Giza's colossal Pyramids and Great Sphinx as well as Luxor's hieroglyph-lined Karnak Temple and Valley of the Kings tombs. The capital, Cairo, is home to Ottoman landmarks like Muhammad Ali Mosque and the Egyptian Museum, a trove of antiquities.

Day Wise Itinerary

Day 1 - Hello, Egypt !
• Welcome to Cairo - Egypt’s capital – built on the banks of the river Nile.

There are also other attractions such as palaces, historical mosques, mausoleums, citadels and much more and Cairo is also known for its nightlife and various cafes.
• Upon arrival at the Cairo International airport, you will be met by our local representative who will assist you. Head to your hotel while passing through Old Cairo to enjoy the panoramic view of the citadel with the towering Mosque of Mohamed Ali. Pass by Sultan Hassan & El Refaie mosques. Spend the day relaxing and taking in the breath- taking sights this colourful city has to offer. Else, you may opt to head out for a Sound and Light Show by the Pyramids (available at additional cost).


• Overnight stay at the hotel in the comforts of your room at Cairo.

Day 2 - Cairo
• Rise to a beautiful day and Savour a hearty breakfast.
• Today morning you will be met at the hotel by your guide for a full day tour of the Pyramids at Giza, Sphinx, papyrus fair, perfume factory and cotton shop. Thereafter visit the Egyptian Museum. Designed in the Neoclassical style by Marcel Dourgnon, the Egyptian Museum boasts 107 halls filled with artifacts dating from the prehistoric through the Roman periods, with the majority of the collection focused on the pharaonic era. The museum houses approximately 160,000 objects covering 5,000 years of Egypt's past. Post the visit to Egyptian Museum, proceed to Khan El-Khalili Bazaar. No visit to Cairo is Complete without a stop at the Khan El-Khalili bazaar, where you will be transported back in time to an old Arab souk. Shop owners calling you to their stalls, the scent of spices, the hustle and bustle of trade, and the many beautiful objects that can purchased will have you lost among alleys for hours. Put your
haggling skills to the test when buying statuettes, spices, souvenirs, silver jewellery, t-shirts, galabiyyas, belly dancing costumes, or anything for that matter. When your shopping’s done, do not miss out on a traditional cup of tea at the famous Fishawi’s cafe (own expense).

They are undisputedly one of the world's most breathtaking monuments, and Egypt's second most visited touristic site. The most remarkable feature of the temple of Abu-Simbel is that the construction is oriented in a way that twice a year, the morning sun rays shine through the length of the inner temple cave and illuminate the statues of the four gods seated at the end of the cave.
• Next up, Sail to Kom Ombo to visit The Ptolemaic Temple shared by two gods Sobek & Haeroris.
