    What to Expect
    Day 1:

    Egyptologist guide will meet you at your Cairo or Giza hotel at 8am in an air-conditioned vehicle, then drive you to the UNESCO-listed Giza Pyramids. Admire the three vast pyramids of the kings and the several smaller pyramids that were tombs of the queens: if you'd like to climb inside the Great Pyramid or see King Khufu's solar boat, your guide can arrange this for an additional charge. Stroll out into the sands and scramble aboard a camel for a 25-minute ride on the famous 'ship of the desert', before discovering the Valley Temple and the iconic Sphinx. You'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant with a view of the pyramids. Next, you'll drive to Saqqara, to see the Pyramid of Djoser, probably Egypt's oldest pyramid, enter the pyramid of Teti to see the pyramid texts, and admire the stunning reliefs in the tombs of the nobles. You'll finish the day with a look at the remains of Egypt's ancient capital Memphis, returning to your hotel around 4 or 5pm.

    Day 2:

    After an 8am pickup, your day begins with a private tour of the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, home to one of the world's largest collections of ancient Egyptian artefacts. Marvel at the treasures of King Tutankhamen, including his golden death mask, rich jewelry, and even his sandals! You can choose to view the mummies of long-lost pharaohs, including Ramses II, for an extra charge. After lunch in a local restaurant, it's time for a whirlwind tour of UNESCO-listed Old Cairo. You'll visit the Citadel of Saladin, the Alabaster Mosque, the Coptic Christian Hanging Church, and the Ben Ezra Synagogue, before haggling for souvenirs at the famous Khan al-Khalili bazaar. You'll return to your hotel around 4 or 5pm.
