DAY 1 – Arrive in Egypt for your Cairo City Tour Package
When you arrive at the airport in Cairo your tour manager meets you at the airport, and then he or she accompanies you to your hotel in one of deluxe air-conditioned vehicles. On arrival at your hotel, you will be assisted with check-in and then your tour manager will review your itinerary with you, and also confirm pick-up times for your upcoming tours.
Our 5-day Cairo tours packages don’t include any outing on the first day, so once your tour manager leaves you, you will have the rest of the day to yourself.
DAY 2 – Giza and Saqqara Pyramids Tour
Your guide and one of our drivers will arrive at your hotel at the confirmed time, and then you will drive to Giza to see the legendary Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx. Enjoy a fascinating tour of the site and then you will be taken to a good local restaurant for some lunch.
After lunch, you drive to the ancient Saqqara necropolis which is about 40 kilometers from Cairo. Here you will be able to see the famous Step Pyramid that was built by Pharaoh Djoser. This is the first pyramid ever built in Egypt.
Following your visit to Saqqara you will then be driven back to your hotel in Cairo. Once you are back at your hotel, you will have the rest of the day for yourself.

DAY 3 – Cairo City Tour
The 3rd day of our Cairo tours packages begins with a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, or the Egyptian Museum, as it is often called. The museum is home to more than 100,000 ancient Egyptian artifacts. For many tourists, the museum is one of the main highlights of their stay in Cairo.
After you are finished at the museum, you will then head to a good local restaurant for lunch. When you are finished eating, you will head for a part of the city know as Coptic Cairo. Here you will visit the famous Hanging Church of Cairo and also the historical Ben Ezra Synagogue.
Following your visit to the synagogue, you are then driven to Islamic Cairo to spending some time at the centuries-old Khan el Khalili Bazaar. This is one of the oldest and biggest bazaars in the entire Middle East. Use the opportunity to do some shopping, or simply stroll around and soak up the lively and colorful atmosphere. When you are ready to leave, just let your guide know and then you will be driven back to your hotel.
