Cairo - two days tour by plane from Sharm El Sheikh Airport

Day 1:

Morning- Breakfast at the hotel then our friendly expert Egyptologist will accompany you to the area of inspiring Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza. Built 4600 years ago Khufu, the successor of Sneferu, was known as a tyrant and in his arrogance he decided to have a tomb built that was bigger and better than all others.
Cheops (Khufu) was the builder of the Great Pyramid in the IV dynasty. Chephren (Khufru) was the builder of the second Pyramid, whilst the third was built by Mycrenios (Menkuara) the son of Chephren. The mysterious Sphinx, with its mask of Chephren and body of a Lion, stands close by as a guard of the land of pharaohs.
The Sphinx and the three Pyramids were considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
After that you will move on to Sakkara (located 25 Km south of Cairo). Djeser’s (Zosser’s) step Pyramid (built 4700 years ago) dominates the skyline and is believed to be the ancient Egyptians first attempt at pyramid building.
We then go to The Southern (Bent) Pyramid of Dashur which was built of local limestone and cased with fine Turah limestone. It is about 101m in height while the length of each side is 188.6m. As with all Pyramids the original entrance of the Pyramid is on the northern face, however Professor Ahmed Fakhry (1905–1973), during his works in 1951, discovered another entrance on its western side.
Back to the hotel to refresh and then we will invite you to enjoy the delights of the best Middle-Eastern cuisine while cruising down the Nile on a 5-star Riverboat. Enjoy a traditional Egyptian Sufi and Belly Dancing show, which is a very pleasant way to spend an evening and experience Cairo by night.
Overnight at your hotel.

Day2:


After breakfast you will enjoy the legendary treasures of the Egyptian Museum. Take a look at some of the most exquisite and ancient artifacts and statues in history. Then we take you to see the Islamic areas of Cairo including the Citadel of Saladdin - boasting the famous Alabaster Mosque of Mohammed Ali.
Then onto the Coptic area of Cairo where the Romans constructed the fortress of Babylon which is built over the ruins of two towers of the church of St. Mary or more commonly know as the Hanging Church, followed by St Sergius which is said to be the resting place for the Holy Family .
For the last evening in Cairo we offer a great performance at the Giza Pyramids. The spectacular sound and laser light show is a must to see while in Cairo. The voice of the great Sphinx tells the story of the Pharaohs, their lives and how the great Pyramids were built. (The show is available in many different languages).
Transfer back to Cairo airport to fly back to Sharm. Transfer back to your hotel in Dahab.
