After enjoying your breakfast at the hotel, you will meet your knowledgeable tour guide to begin your Egypt Easter tour.
Your first stop will be the Giza Plateau, where you will marvel at the Great Pyramid of Cheops. This architectural masterpiece is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and was built using over 2.6 million blocks of rock, each weighing 50 tons. Learn about King Cheops, one of the most famous rulers in ancient Egypt, and admire the grandeur of his pyramid. Next, you will visit the middle pyramid of King Chephren. Although smaller in size than the Great Pyramid, it is situated on a higher plateau, creating the illusion of being larger. You will also see the pyramid of Mycerinus, the smallest of the three main pyramids at the Giza Pyramid Complex.
Your tour continues with a visit to the Great Sphinx of Giza. This iconic limestone statue depicts a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human. Built by King Chephren, it was intended to protect the pyramids from tomb robbers, adding to the mystique of the Giza Plateau. You will then explore the Valley Temple, a mortuary temple associated with King Chephren.
Afterward, enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant before heading to downtown Cairo. Your next stop is the renowned Egyptian Museum, home to over 120,000 artifacts, including the spectacular treasures of King Tutankhamun.
Admire the massive statues and ancient relics that provide insight into Egypt's rich history. Continuing the tour, you will visit the old Coptic Cairo area. Explore the Hanging Church, also known as the Church of the Virgin Mary, which was built on top of a Roman fortress wall dating back to the 4th century BC.
Discover the church of St. Sergius, believed to have provided shelter for the Holy Family during their escape from King Herod and the Roman soldiers. Finally, visit the Ben Ezra Synagogue, a sacred place for Jews, and hear the story of how the box of Baby Moses was found in this location.
Next, delve into the vibrant atmosphere of Islamic Cairo. Explore the famous Khan El Khalili market, where you can find a wide array of Egyptian souvenirs and traditional crafts. Take a break and enjoy a cup of tea at El Fishawy Cafe, a popular spot in the heart of the El-Hussein area.
Finally, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
