Upon your cruise ship arrival, get ready to start your wonderful tour to Cairo with your private Egyptologist tour guide.


Start your tour with a visit to the Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of  Cheops  ) is the oldest and largest of the pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
The great pyramid was built as a tomb for the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian pharaoh Khufu and estimated that it was built in the 26th century BC during a period of around 27 years.

Initially standing at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years. Throughout history, the majority of the smooth white limestone casing was removed, which lowered the pyramid's height to the present 138.5 metres. What is seen today is the underlying core structure. The base was measured to be about 230.3 metres (755.6 ft) square, giving a volume of roughly 2.6 million cubic metres (92 million cubic feet), which includes an internal hillock

If you wish to visit the burial chamber of King  Cheops. You can ask the tour guide to buy it for you, it costs around 35$ per person)
 

Then we will visit the Pyramid of Chephren or Khafre. This is the second-tallest and second-largest of the 3 Ancient Egyptian  Pyramids of Giza and the tomb of the Fourth-Dynasty pharaoh Khafre (Chefren), who ruled c. 2558−2532 BC
 

Then you will visit the Pyramid of Mykerinus. 

 

Then go head to visit the Valley Temple of king Chephren. While doing that you can have a closer look at the Great Sphinx - the legendary guardian that stands by the huge funeral complex with its lion body and the head of king Chephren. Enjoy a camel ride by the  Pyramids of Giza in the desert.

Move to visit the Step Pyramid at Sakkara, which is considered the world's oldest major stone structure. It was built in the 3rd Dynasty for King Djoser.
 

Then Proceed to have your lunch at a local restaurant. After that, we will transfer you to Memphis which was founded by King Menes, and was the capital of Egypt during the Old Kingdom. It was considered to be a center of rule and culture for over 3000 years the first capital of Egypt.
