Private Cairo Tours From Luxor by Flight
An early breakfast is followed by our representative transferring you to Luxor airport for the flight to Cairo. Upon arrival, you will be met by our Cairo representative who will help check you into tour hotel and then take you on a full day tour of Egypt’s capital city.
First stop is the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx: the most famous monuments of not only ancient Egypt but of the entire ancient world! These massive stone structures were built around 4,500 years ago on a rocky desert plateau close to the Nile. After the visit, you will be driven to the Papyrus Institute where you will see how the ancient Egyptians made this forerunner to today’s paper; have a go at making it yourself; and get the opportunity to look at some fantastic examples of papyrus art, with no obligation to buy.
After lunch, at a local restaurant, you will be driven to Sakkara to see the very first pyramid ever built; the Step Pyramid of Djoser. You will also get the chance to see some fantastic mastabas, including the mastaba of Mereruka, the largest one built in ancient Egypt. You will then be able to marvel at the Pyramid Texts inside the Pyramid of Teti before heading off to the ancient capital of Egypt: Memphis. The Colossus of Ramses II dominates the museum here!
After this fantastic trip through Egypt’s pharaonic past, you will be driven back to Cairo airport to fly back to Luxor.
