3 Nights in Cairo – you can choose your hotel and standards below
Today, you will have the opportunity to explore Cairo’s highlights with your private English-speaking guide. Begin with a visit to the Egyptian Museum, where you will view priceless treasures from Ancient Egypt, including the famous Tut-Ankh-Amon treasures. Drive to Mokattam Hill and visit Saladin’s Citadel, which has been transformed into an open museum. After exploring the Citadel, end the day exploring the busy Khan El Khalili Bazaar—North Africa’s most famous market—where you can watch skilled artisans working with gold, silver, and brass. Return to the hotel, where the rest of the day will be at your leisure.
Wake up this morning, grab your camera, and prepare for an unforgettable journey back in time. Meet back up with your private English-speaking guide and begin with a visit to the vast Necropolis of Ancient Memphis, where you’ll see the famous Step Pyramid of Zoser, the first tall building known to mankind. Next, get ready to tick an item off your bucket list, as you go to see one of the world’s seven wonders: the Pyramids of Giza. Whilst there, take in the view of the Sphinx, which was carved from one solid piece of limestone and measures 50 meters (164 Feet) in length and 22 meters (72 Feet) in height. Return to your hotel later that afternoon, where you’ll have free time for rest or recreation before enjoying dinner on your own.

At a minimum, your travel insurance should cover cancellation, medical and repatriation expenses. It should also include personal injury and accident, death, loss of personal baggage and money, as well as personal liability insurance.
Credit card companies and reciprocal medical coverage agreements do not always include comprehensive insurance. To learn more, talk to a recommended travel insurance provider or read our terms and conditions.
