BEST PRICE GUARANTEEDLEARN MORE
Cairo is a city of great ancient history, and now is one of the largest in the world, as well as the largest in Egypt. Journey to the Egyptian capital, an incredible land of artifacts and historical sites, with our tours and activities.
Uncover the most impressive monuments of Cairo on a Great Pyramids, Memphis, and Sakkara private day tour. Visit the Three Pyramids of Giza, Cheops, Chephren, and Mycenirus and marvel at their towering majesty. Then, go see the Great Sphinx, the oldest known monumental sculpture, dating back over four thousand years. Also pay a visit to the Valley Temple, among the Pyramids of Chephren.
While marveling at the pyramids, try watching a sound and light show! Witness a spectacular event as a story told with light and sound unfolds, taking you on a journey through history. Begin with the story of the Sphinx, who has guarded the city of the dead for five thousand years. Also witness the story of the construction of the pyramids, and the lives of ancient Egyptian figures such as Thutmosis IV and Nefertiti.
Go back in time and enter the Pharaonic Village, a tremendously accurate reproduction of an ancient village, with people dressed in period-accurate costumes, living in historically-accurate homes, and living lives according to history, as well as eating food from the old era.
There are other things to do in Cairo besides the history. Cruise across the Nile with a lunch cruise. Enjoy your buffet meal accompanied by live music, impressive service, and a beautiful view of the Cairo skyline, as you move down the longest river in the world on a two-hour cruise. Or take a Felucca on the same river and experience a beautiful sailboat ride as you discover the amazing nightlife, or enjoy the warm sun.
Leave the city for a day and go on an Alexandria full day private tour from Cairo. Visit Egypt’s second-largest city after Cairo and its largest seaport, where the legendary Great Library of Alexandria once stood. See the 3rd century Pompey’s Pillar, a red Aswan granite column that represents the final remains of the Seraphim temple. Also see the site of the largest Roman cemetery and Qaitbay Citadel, before traveling to the New Library of Alexandria, constructed in honor of the ancient library and now one of the largest in the world.
