The Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, which is one of Egypt's most significant museums since it has the most extensive exhibits relating to ancient Egyptian history, will be our next stop after touring the Giza pyramids. This features some exceptional items that belonged to Pharaohs and their family, such as King Tutankhamun's magnificent tombs and the fascinating room of mummified animals. It also includes more than 100,000 artifacts from different cultures that have affected Ancient Egyptian Civilization over the course of thousands of years in diverse ways.
After that, we'll have lunch in Cairo at a real Egyptian restaurant. From this point on, we will visit the Islamic section of old Cairo as part of our trip. The Saladin Citadel trip will be the first stop on the journey. You may visit this magnificent citadel's "Mohamed Ali Mosque" and take in the fortifications while there. It is important to note that from this fortress, you can see the entire ancient city from a wide angle.
You will go to Coptic Cairo, the Christian area of the city, at the conclusion of this historical trip. You may see the Ben Ezra Synagogue, the Hanging Church, and the Church of St. Sergius also called the Church of the Cave, where the Holy Family hid during their departure to Egypt.
Finally, after such a program in the magnificent towns of Cairo and Giza, we drive you back to your accommodation.
The day excursion starts from your Cairo accommodation at 7:00 AM and travels across the neighbouring desert landscapes after leaving the city. The gorgeous Bahariya Oasis, a desert that is renowned all over the world for its alluring nature and breathtaking vistas, will be our first stop of the day.
When we got there, we would switch from the minibus to the jeep and start driving to the Western Desert. Prepare yourself for a one-of-a-kind desert trip filled with exhilarating thrills. With the assistance of your guide, tour the oasis and take in the expansive setting of shaded palm trees and natural springs.
Continue your white desert tour after lunch and stop at the adjacent Agabat, a stunning valley with commanding white cliff walls and yellow limestone cliffs. Here, you may use a Jeep 4x4 to practise sandboarding on the sand dunes. Climb a few sand dunes to take in the infinite views.
The volcanic mountains, which resemble volcanic cones and rise from the desert, would be our next destination after travelling far into the desert. We would travel to the volcanic peak known as Al- Marsous, which is coated with black basalt. Let's halt at the overlook to get a broad view of the Oasis's scenery.
As a last destination, you will go to Egypt's Crystal Mountain, a breathtakingly beautiful desert location that is coated in a coating of black basalt. The sun-glittering crystals provide the surroundings with a particular air of mystery. There are minerals around, but you shouldn't bring any of them with you.
Our excursion will come to a conclusion at around 10 PM when our tour guide and driver return you to your Cairo hotel.
For a beautiful day trip of Alexandria, our tour guide will be waiting for you in the hotel lobby at around 6:30 a.m. From Cairo, we will depart for Alexandria, Egypt's most significant Mediterranean city.
The Citadel of Qaitbey, a fortification built in the 15th century and situated in the port, will be your first visit. It previously held the renowned Alexandria lighthouse, the remnants of which are still visible. Then take a trip to Kom el Shogafa's catacombs, the biggest Roman cemetery with three levels cut out of rock and a significant archaeological site dating to the first century. More than 300 mummies, the most prevalent burial deities, and numerous Greco-Roman themes are housed on its three underground levels.
You'll eat lunch in a seafood restaurant where you may sample some of the most popular Egyptian dishes. After you've had time to recharge, you'll go to the Pompay Pillar and the Serapeus Temple Ruins in Alexandria, where the Pompey Column still stands. According to some historians, this significant Roman general was killed in combat and was afterward buried here.
You will visit the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, one of the most significant cultural hubs in the eastern Mediterranean, at the end of the day. We will ultimately take you back to your Cairo hotel in the late afternoon.
Our tour guide will be there to pick you up in the hotel lobby at the scheduled time on the final day so you can be transferred back to the Cairo airport and leave Egypt with new experiences, stunning photos, and indelible memories.
