Cairo, Alexandria, and Luxor
5 Days Cairo Alexandria Luxor Short Break Tour Package
With our 5-day trip, you'll get a chance to experience all of Egypt's most famous sites without having to deal with their notorious heat. We'll take you first to Cairo, where you can see the pyramids at Giza and go inside the museum holding King Tutankhamun's tomb before heading off to Alexandria for some time at the beach or visiting Pompey's Pillar (which is actually not a pillar but an obelisk). After that, we'll head to Luxor and spend two days seeing some of Egypt's most beautiful temples like Karnak and Valley of the Kings before ending our tour back in Cairo so we can catch our flights home.
After a long flight, you'll arrive at Cairo International Airport. A representative from Cairo Top Tours will be waiting for you with a sign bearing your name and will help you check in at the hotel. After checking in, relax in your room and freshen up.
This morning, you'll tour the Great Giza Pyramids - the largest in Egypt. You'll see the Great Sphinx, which dates back to 2500 B.C. and can be found near the pyramids themselves. Next, you'll visit the Egyptian Museum, where you will see some of Egypt's most famous artifacts, including King Tutankhamen's treasures!
Overnight at the hotel.
Our day two will start off with a trip to the city of Alexandria, where you will have the chance to visit the famous Catacombs of Kom el-Shuqafa. The catacombs are one of the most famous Christian sites in Egypt and date back to Roman times and contain more than 1,000 chambers with ornate facades carved into rock walls. You will also see some ancient Greek ruins on your way to your next stop, Fort Qaitbey, which was built by Saladin in 1168-1169 CE. Next up is Pompey's Pillar, which was built by Pharaoh Ptolemy II Philadelphus in 285 BCE and is considered one of the best-preserved examples of ancient Egyptian architecture. At the end you will visit Saint Mark's Coptic Orthodox Cathedral: This cathedral was built in 1881 and is one of only two churches that were built during that time period by Christians who lived under Ottoman rule. It contains many historic artifacts including an iconostasis made out of gold-plated wood with icons painted on it in bright colors.
Your day will be capped off with dinner at an authentic Egyptian restaurant before heading back to your hotel.
In the morning, we will fly to Luxor on our way to explore the East Bank of the Nile. The first stop is Karnak Temple: The largest temple in Egypt, Karnak is a complex of massive buildings dedicated to the gods Amon and Amun. It's also home to one of the most famous obelisks in the world, which you can see from the Temple of Luxor.
After that, we'll head over to Luxor temple.: Like Karnak, this temple was dedicated to the god Amon. Walk through its hallways and courtyards to see some incredible carvings and sculptures—you'll also be able to see some of the ruins that are being excavated as part of a massive restoration effort.
