With your own private Egyptologist guide to accompany you, prepare to be amazed at the history of this great city.
Great Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza
While there are actually over 100 pyramids in Egypt, including at least eight more at Giza, the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) is the only “Wonder of the Ancient World” that still survives. During your time at the Great Pyramids of Giza you’ll also see the mysterious Sphinx, a symbol that has come to represent the essence of Egypt for thousands of years.
The Egyptian Museum
Explore the history of Egypt through the 120,000 artifacts exhibited, from Narmer to Akhnaton and Ramses. On the upper floor is the famous collection of King Tutankhamun treasures.
Khan el-Khalili Bazaars
Grab a bargain when you barter with the locals at Cairo’s most famous shopping area. Shop for spices, local arts and crafts, leather goods, jewelry and more. You name it, you can buy it at Khan el-Khalili.
Citadel of Salah el-Din with Alabaster Mosque
The Citadel is one of the world’s greatest monuments to medieval warfare, as well as a highly visible landmark on Cairo’s eastern skyline, situated on a spur of limestone.
The Hanging Church, built into the walls of the Water Gate of the Roman fortress, is possibly the oldest Christian church in Egypt, dating to around the 4th century. See the Church of St Sergius (Abu Serga), built atop one of the sites where the Holy Family rested on their flight from Herod, and Ben Ezra Synagogue which is Egypt’s oldest synagogue, dating to the 9th century.
