Giza's Egyptian Pyramids
The Giza pyramid complex, which has been around for more than 4,000 years, represents the pinnacle of ancient Egypt's reputation. The Giza complex includes the Great Sphinx, the Everlasting Valley Temple, six smaller pyramids in addition to the three main pyramids.

The great Pyramid
The sole structure from the era when people could reach the stars and build the seven wonders of the ancient world is the Great Pyramid. The Great Pyramid was built in 2580 BC with the aid of 2,300,000 limestone blocks, each weighing 2.5 tonnes, and a workforce of about 100,000 free skilled labourers over the course of 20 years. After the pyramid's height of 147 metres (481 feet) was surpassed by the Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1311, it held the record for the highest structure in the world for 3800 years. Everyone at the facility is fascinated by the interior's intricate design and enigmatic provenance to this day.

The great Sphinx of Giza
The Great Sphinx is now referred as as Abu al-Hawl, which in contemporary Arabic means "The Father of Terror," replacing its former name of "Hor-Em-Akhet," which translates to "Horus of the Horizon." The sphinx, a legendary animal with a lion's body and a man's head, is thought to represent King Khafre as a representation of his strength and intelligence. The sphinx is 73 metres (240 feet) tall and 19 metres (60 feet) broad, carved from a single, enormous limestone boulder (66 feet).

The Valley of Temple
The Valley Temple was built in the complex where the mummification process took place during the Old Kingdom of Egypt (2686 2134 BC). The valley is a remarkably well-preserved archaeological site and has been the source of essential knowledge on the mummification process and ancient Egyptian burial practises because of the ancient Egyptians' talent in construction.

After a great lunch at a café with a view of the pyramids, your tour guide will lead you on a stunning tour of the following:

This building, which was erected in the fifth century AD on the southern wall of a Roman stronghold known as Babylon, served as a haven for the holy family. The hanging church, which combines creative architectural elements from the seventh to the twelfth centuries, is 30 feet tall and breathtaking on the inside and outside.

Mosque of Amr Ibn Al Aas
One of Egypt's most important and well-known Islamic landmarks, it was constructed in 641 AD and is still used as a place of worship today. It is the start of Egypt's Islamic history. The Amr Ibn Al-Aas Mosque, which serves as a living museum of Islamic architectural evolution, has undergone numerous restorations over the years.

The Ben Ezra Temple
The Ben Ezra Synagogue from the 19th century is a remarkable tourist destination. It functioned as a church until 882 AD, when it underwent conversion and became a synagogue. The synagogue was revealed to be in fantastic shape and to have outstanding Jewish patterns and decorations. long, all the way up until the 1950s.

Market in Khan El Khalili
The Khan El Khalili Bazaar, which was built around 970 AD and is still in use today, is a wonderful representation of a bygone era. The reason it is referred to as the "Golden Brick Road" of the Middle East is that it has everything a visitor could want in its fantastic market, stores, and a few old cafés that perfectly embody the traditional beauty and refinement of early Islamic civilization. The entire street is lined with magnificent Islamic ornamentation and architecture. Then we'll make a pit break for lunch at a neighbouring eatery.

When that is finished, we'll transport you to a five-star hotel in Cairo where you'll spend the night.

Temple of Karnak
The names Ipet-isu The Most Selected of Places and later Pr-Imn House of Amon, which were given to the Karnak temple during building, suggested that it was the origin of ancient Egyptian religion. It has been the main location of devotion for a number of gods, including Osiris, Ptah, and Isis, for more than 1500 years. However, the Theban triad—God Amun, his wife the Goddess of Justice Mut, and themselves—was the focus of the complex.

Following lunch, you'll return to the Nile Cruise before spending the afternoon and evening exploring, stopping at:

 Luxor Temple
Every night, a lunar miracle occurs in Luxor Temple as the moon illuminates the entire building, displaying its allure and mystique. It was given the name "Ipetresyet," which translates to "southern sanctuary," when it was built in 1400 BCE, during the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. The temple has a remarkable design with pillars and elaborate ornamentation that appears even more lovely at night. It was dedicated to Amun, a member of the Theban Triad and a symbol of the return of regal authority.

There are 63 tombs in the valley, including those of the pharaohs Rameses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X), Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and Tutankhamun, whose tomb receives more visitors than any other after Ramses the Great. In 1979, the Valley was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Temple of Hatshepsut
One of the most illustrious kings of ancient Egypt, Queen Hatshepsut, is honoured at the beautiful Hatshepsut Temple, also known as Djoser-"Holy Djeseru's of Holies." The temple took 15 years to complete and was constructed in 1479 BC during the nascent kingdom. It was dedicated to Hatshepsut's enduring heritage and the creator god Amun. Some of the most spectacular artefacts and sculptures from ancient Egypt are on exhibit in the temple's breathtaking Classical Architecture, which is based on the style of the New Kingdom.

The Colossi of memnon

The two massive Huge Colossi of Memnon stones, each weighing 720 tonnes and made of quartzite sandstone, were modelled after Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1386-1350). They were destroyed by a major earthquake in 27 BC, and they were reconstructed in 199 AD. The enormous reputation of the statues spread throughout the Greco-Roman Empire as a result of the Vocal Memnon phenomenon, which was merely the sound of wind blowing through the monument at dawn. Then you'll return to your cruise.

Lunch and the remainder of the day will be spent on board your Nile Cruise.


After breakfast, your journey will begin as you get set to visit one of Egypt's most spectacular temples, which is:: The Kom Ombo Temple , which means "Golden Hill," was built between 205 and 180 BC, under the reign of Ptolemy V.

One of the final temples constructed during the Ptolemaic period, which lasted from 237 BC to 57 BC, to serve as the recognised temple of the sky god Horus, was the Edfu Temple. From 237 BC to 57 BC, it was one of the last temples ever built for the sky god Horus to act as his official house of worship.

Obelisk Completed
At the entrance to the Karnak temple, Queen Hatshepsut erected the incomplete obelisk known as "Tekhenu," which means "to pierce the sky" (1508-1458 BC). It demonstrates how obelisks were created because they would have weighed 1200 tonnes and stood 42 metres tall if they hadn't been destroyed during construction. Unfortunately, the obelisk was harmed during building and is still there.

The proportionately higher prices for people traveling alone (Solo Travelers) mostly result from the higher overnight-room costs, as normally almost all hotel rooms are structured for 2 people who can each assume half of the overnight costs. This also applies to flat-rate travel. The hotels would not benefit from offering a reduction to solo travelers when the rooms could be occupied by 2 persons at a normal price. During the low season, some hotels lower the prices as a reason for the decreased demand since they have a large number of beds when the demand is not too high.
Prices vary throughout the year depending on the offer and request. During the summer and especially during the holidays that are considered high seasons like the Christma and New Year holidays, Easter holidays, and special events such as sports championship or destinations that are very popular and recent. Therefore tour operators can demand higher prices according to the increasing cost of accommodation and/ or implementation.
Most trips can also be booked for a shorter or longer period. However, if, for example, your departure time is changed, trips lasting 5 or 10 days will not be possible, that’s why we always request the flight details before proceeding with the booking, just to make sure the last suggested itinerary is fit for both the traveler and the operator.
From the date of booking until 46 days before your arrival date, 10% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 45 and 31 days before your arrival date, 20% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 30 and 15 days before your arrival date, 50% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 14 and 1 days before your arrival date, 100% of the entire tour price will be charged.
