After enjoying your breakfast, you'll join one of our fascinating Cairo day tours and visit the Giza pyramids.
The great pyramid of Cheops and the pyramid of Chephren as well as the smallest royal pyramid in Giza were built for the burial of King Mycerinus, one of the lastest kings of the fourth dynasty who ruled Egypt before his son King Shepseskaf.
With a specialist Egyptologist by your side, you'll learn all about the Sphinx and the historical details surrounding it. Then you'll visit the Valley Temple, also known as the mummification temple of king Chephren. This impressive structure was built from Aswan granite quarries and paved with white alabaster.
Your tour guide and personal driver will take you on a wonderful tour of the Egyptian Museum, where you'll be delightfully impressed by the treasures of Tutankhamun.
We'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant, and then we'll continue our tour of Coptic Cairo to see the old churches and synagogues. First, we'll visit the Hanging Church, built above the ruins of an ancient Roman fortress of Babylon. Then, we'll visit the Cavern Church of Abu Serga, where the holy family took shelter for few months during the holy family journey to Egypt. Finally, we'll visit the Ben Ezra Synagogue, the oldest Jewish temple in Egypt.
Back to the hotel and overnight.
