The museum is like a time machine that you can travel through.


Finally, Khan El-Khalili in Old Cairo, which was founded in the 14th century and has traditionally been a significant place for both commercial and cultural activity, will be our next stop. Here is a map that will help you navigate the Khan El-Khalili market and its surroundings.

Meals: Lunch.

Take your breakfast. You will be picked up at your Cairo lodging around six in the morning, the trip departs the city through the nearby desert landscapes. The beautiful Bahariya Oasis, which was formerly the primary agricultural hub of the Pharaonic Empire, is the day's first visit.

It is well known for having a lot of dates and olives. With the help of your guide, explore the oasis and take in the expansive setting of shaded palm trees and natural springs.

Visit the Black Desert after lunch for a breath-taking view of the region's craggy, mountain-like domes that stand out against the surrounding sand. Visit the Agabat valley, which has spectacular white cliff walls and yellow limestone rocks, after that.

Continue to Crystal Mountain, an incredibly rare structure that glistens and glows in the Egyptian sun and is composed completely of calcite crystal.

The White Desert, which received its name from the huge expanse of white sand it contains, is the next stop. It is possible to climb a few sand dunes for breath-taking views that never seem to end.

Finally, unwind while you travel back to Cairo; you'll get to your hotel around 11 PM.

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch.

After taking your delicious breakfast, our Egyptologist tour guide will take you from your hotel to transfer to Alexandria.

Alexandria, Egypt's second-largest city, is well-known for its Roman remains and has a more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern vibe. Your Egyptologist tour guide will give you a customized tour of Alexandria while imparting knowledge about the location. You decide how much time to spend at each location you stop at along the way. Alexandria was established by Alexander the Great as the capital of Greco-Roman Egypt in 332 B.C. The catacombs of Kom ash-Shuqqafa, a Roman cemetery with a family tomb that showcases the merger of Egyptian and Roman art and architecture, should be the destination of your first trip to this historic city. Visit Caracalla Hall and the tomb underneath.

Return to Pompey's Pillar once you are above ground. Built as an homage to Emperor Diocletian, who delivered the city from a siege and fed the starving citizens, this granite monument is 25 meters tall (82 feet). Your tour guide will also take you to the citadel of Qaitbay, which was constructed in 1477 to protect the city's eastern side, continuing the Roman motif. The substantial lighthouse at Alexandria stood close to the fort.

You'll tour the Alexandria Library following lunch (an extra fee). The Norwegian-designed skyscraper is a stunning example of contemporary architecture in contrast to the historic buildings found all around Egypt. The library is one of the biggest literary institutions in the world since it holds copies of every book ever written. The library has several historical displays in addition to a collection of priceless antiquarian books (additional cost).

Then drive you back to your Cairo hotel.

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch.

Following breakfast, you check out of your Cairo hotel and our tour guide picks you up to take you to the Cairo international airport to back to your home.

If you must remain anywhere in Egypt, make Cairo your home. Cairo is undoubtedly the best location in Egypt to visit, therefore this statement is hardly unnecessary. The Giza Pyramids, Khan El-Khalili, the Egyptian Museum, the gorgeous Bahariya Oasis, the Black Desert, Crystal Mountain, and finally Alexandria to view the citadel of Qaitbay and Pompey's Pillar may all be visited while on one of our Cairo short break packages.
 

Must-visit attractions in Cairo include the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum, Khan el-Khalili Bazaar, and the historic Islamic Cairo district.

Cairo is a really important city in Egypt. It's the biggest city in Africa and it has a special name that means "the city that won." It's found on both sides of the River Nile, near where the river splits into smaller parts in the north of Egypt. People have been living in Cairo for a really long time, like more than 6,000 years! It has been the capital city of many different kingdoms in Egypt.

The Egyptian Museum in Cairo is a really big place where they keep lots of old things from a long time ago. They have over 120,000 special objects, like the stuff they found in King Tutankhamen's tomb and some really old bodies called mummies. The things in the museum are from a time when Egypt was a very important place, starting from around 2700 BC to a long time ago when the Greeks and Romans were around.

The crystal mountain crown is like a special hat that is on top of a white desert. It is a very valuable treasure in a place called Farafra Oasis. The mountain is about 120 kilometers away from Farafra Oasis, and it is even farther away from another place called Bahariya Oasis. It is more than 400 kilometers away from a city called Giza.

This big column called Pompey's Pillar was built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian to celebrate his win over a rebellion in a city called Alexandria. It was a way for the people to say thank you to the Emperor for his help. The city had a big problem and the people were very upset, but the Emperor came and made things better.

Alexandria is a calm and not very busy place, while Cairo is very busy with lots of cars and people. But both cities will show you different parts of modern life in Egypt. Going to these cities during your trip to Egypt is the best option for people who love to travel.

One of the amazing things to do near Islamic Cairo is to visit the Cairo Citadel. It's a special place where you can see really beautiful Islamic buildings and get the best view of the city.
