    What to Expect
    Day 1:

    Once crossing into Egypt, from Taba Border our representative will await you, and aid you to the car which will take you to Cairo. We will start with the most famous sites in Cairo The Pyramids of Giza, including the famous Sphinx (the silent evidence for the great civilization but so expressive) as well as the Egyptian Museum. Overnight Cairo.

    Day 2:

    After breakfast at your hotel we drive to Sakkara, the ancient "Necropolis" of the Old Kingdom's Capital, Memphis, where we will visit a few pyramids and tombs, among them the known "Step Pyramid", the oldest known Pyramid. Then we drive to visit the Cairo Citadel built by Saladin, with its known "Alabaster Mosque". Overnight in Cairo.

    Day 3:

    Take a fascinating private tour to Alexandria from Cairo in the company of your own Egyptologist guide. The second largest city in Egypt, Alexandria has an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern and is famous for its Roman remains. With your own private Egyptologist guide to lead the way, you'll enjoy personalized attention on your private tour of Alexandria. As this is a private tour, you can determine the amount of time you'd like to spend at each of the sites you'll visit. Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 312 B.C., and was the capital of Graeco-Roman Egypt. Your first stop in this historic city is the catacombs of Kom ash-Shuqqafa, a Roman burial site whose family tomb reveals the merging of Egyptian and Roman art and architecture. Descend below ground to visit the tomb and Caracalla Hall. Back above ground, continue to Pompey's Pillar, an 82-foot (25-meter) granite column built to honor Emperor Diocletian, who freed the besieged city and brought food to its starving people. Continuing the Roman theme, the next site your guide will show you is the Roman amphitheater, possibly the best preserved Roman site in Egypt. The site also includes the remains of a Roman street and homes. After lunch you will visit the famous Alexandria Library. In contrast to the ancient architecture found throughout Egypt, the Norwegian-designed building is a striking piece of modern design. A copy of every book published in the world is kept in the library, making it one of the great literary sites in the world. The library also houses several exhibitions relating to the history of Egypt and a display of rare antique books.

    Day 4:

    Today is dedicated to the Old City of Cairo (Fostat) where we will visit the old Coptic Churches and some of the most famous Mosques, characteristic to this area The second part of the day you will spend at leisure to stroll on your own through the famous market-area of Khan el Khalili. In the early afternoon we will pick you up and drive you to the Taba Border Crossing.
