    Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 Arrive in Cairo

    Welcome to Egypt! Upon arrival to the Cairo International airport, you will meet a representative from our team who will assist with the visa formalities (you will need to purchase a tourist visa at the airport) and luggage. You will take a private transfer to your hotel. If you have time in the day, you will take a half-day city tour.

    Accommodation: 3★, 4★ or 5★ options

    Day 2Full Day Tour in Cairo

    After breakfast, you will head off to see the world-famous pyramids of Giza and your guide will walk you through their ancient pasts (if the interior of the pyramids are open, we highly recommend paying the additional fee to enter one of the pyramids).

    Afterward, your guide will take you to the Sphinx and funerary complex where you will learn about the process of mumification.

    Next, you will enjoy a traditional Egyptian lunch and then head off to Saqqara, the famous ‘step pyramid’ and funerary complex.

    In the afternoon, step aboard a small traditional Flouka for a 30 minute to 1-hour ride along the Nile.

    Accommodation: 3★, 4★, or 5★ options

    Day 3Full Day in Cairo

    Start the day with a guided tour to the famous Egyptian Museum, which hosts 120,000 artifacts found throughout Egypt, including the large collection found in Tutankhamun’s Tomb and mummy rooms.

    Enjoy a relaxing lunch beside the Nile. Afterward, you will travel through ‘Garbage City’ (where Cairo’s garbage and recycling takes place) until you reach the Cave Church, which is the largest Church in the Middle East. The Cave Church is built in the side of the Mokattam mountain and includes large rock sculptures.

    Finish the day with a visit to the Ibn Tulum Mosque which is part of ‘Islamic Cairo’. This is said to be the oldest mosque in Cairo and arguably on the whole continent of Africa.

    Accommodation: 3★, 4★, or 5★ options

    Day 4Full Day in Cairo

    After breakfast, you will visit ‘Coptic Cairo’. Your first stop will be the famous Hanging Church, which is said to be dated back to the 3rd or 4th century AD.

    Your next stop will be the Church of St. Sergious (4th century AD), which is traditionally believed to be built on the location where the Holy family rested while on their journey to Egypt. Continue to the Synagogue of Ben Ezra which is said to be the location where baby Moses was found.

    You will enjoy lunch and spend the afternoon exploring the Islamic Citadel with incredible views of the city of Cairo and Pyramids in the distance. The Citadel was the residence of rulers and place of government for Egypt from the 13-19th centuries.

    Finish the day by winding through the famous Khan El Khalily Bazaar and learn about its ancient past. Take time to sip tea or coffee at the El Fishawy Café, which is the oldest cafe in the city, while you take in the culture of this historically rich souk.
