This 4 day Egypt short break tour takes you to the best of Cairo and Giza. You will have a fantastic opportunity to visit the ancient capital of Memphis as well as the 21 pyramids in Giza and Sakkara. King Tut’s and other royal mummies are among the magnificent treasures on show in the Egyptian museum. Enjoy Cairo’s old-town’s historic mosques, churches, and synagogues. Nothing could be more pleasurable than sipping a local beverage in a 300-year-old coffee shop in the market while observing the residents and their culture and customs. The tour includes qualified drivers and guides, transportation, admission tickets, meet-and-greet services, and assistance at all times.
On this day, your Dav safaris representative will meet and greet you at Cairo International Airport and manage your operations through customs formalities, the luggage area, and passport control. Your trip to your hotel (with a pool) will afterwards take place in a private air-conditioned vehicle.
After breakfast in the hotel, take a wonderful tour of the three pyramids of the Giza plateau, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, including Cheops, Chephren, and Mycerinus, to transport you back in time to ancient Egypt. Follow that by going to the Sphinx and the King Chephren’s Granite Temple. Drive to Memphis and Sakkara next, two of Egypt’s most fascinating historical and archaeological sites. The oldest significant stone construction in the world is the Step Pyramids of Sakkara. For King Djoser, it was erected during the third dynasty. Then travel to Prince Ptahotep’s tomb, the Ti Mastabas, and the Sakkara Necropolis. Then, proceed to Memphis, which was established by King Menes and served as the first capital of the Ancient Kingdom of Lower and Upper Egypt. Afterward, stop to visit the Alabaster Sphinx and the two remaining enormous statues of Ramses II. The Papyrus Institute, a sound and light show of the pyramids, and an overnight stay in Cairo are all additional opportunities for you to learn how the famous artwork is created and teach children how to write their names in hieroglyphics.
After breakfast in the hotel, go to Cairo’s famed Egyptian Museum to see its 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, but the highlights are the magnificent treasures of King Tutankhamen. The focal point of the main hall is his stunning death mask and six golden coffins. Visit Abu Serga, where the Holy Family sought refuge, and Ben Ezra, one of Cairo’s oldest synagogues, before moving on to the historic Coptic Christian landmarks and culture. Discover more about Christian life in Egypt. Discover Mohamed Ali Alabaster Mosque’s home, the Citadel of Salah el-Din, before moving on to Khan el Khalili Bazaars.
