Turn back the hands of time and discover the impressive remains of two ancient civilizations on our 4 Day Highlights of Cairo & Alexandria Tour. History will come to life as you stand in awe of the Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, and other incredible feats of human strength built by the ancient Egyptians. You’ll also marvel at the intellectual feats of the Roman empire as you visit the Library of Alexandria, once the world’s cradle of learning and research. No matter your interests, this fascinating look into the past is sure to make an impression.
Our 4 Day Highlights of Cairo & Alexandria Tour will take care of your every need, from airport assistance and transfers, to excellent guiding and accommodation, to in-depth exploration of the most impressive ancient sites of Egypt. Start off with a welcome drink at your hotel as your guide outlines your next few days of touring to prepare you for the adventure ahead. Once you’re settled in, enjoy a free night in Cairo to stroll down the Nile, enjoy Egyptian cuisine, shop in the bustling markets, and soak up your new surroundings. Make sure to rest up, because your first day of touring will be full of exciting sites and new information to absorb.
Start off your Cairo tour with a visit to the Pyramids of a Giza and the Great Sphinx, sites you likely have been waiting your entire life to cross off your bucket list. Next, visit the Valley Temple, one of the oldest in Egypt, and Saqqara, Egypt’s ancient burial grounds for the kings. After a long morning, refuel with an authentic Egyptian lunch before making your way through Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt, which is now an open-air museum with many impressive sites and ruins.  At night, enjoy some more time to explore Cairo on your own.

On your last day of touring, head to Alexandria, which was once the stronghold of the Roman empire in Egypt. Visit Pompey’s Pillar, built for the emperor who took control of Egypt, and the Catacombs of Kom el Shokkafa, one of the largest Roman burial sites. Enjoy a delicious lunch of seafood fresh from the Red Sea before finishing your tour with two of Alexandria’s most well-known sites. You’ll visit the Citadel of Qaitbay, which is built on the ruins of the legendary Lighthouse of Alexandria, and enjoy the seaside views. Of course, no trip to Alexandria would be complete without stepping foot in the Library of Alexandria, which was once the largest in the world and the ancient cradle of research and learning. End your day with one last free night in Cairo before returning to the airport the following morning, with a head full of new knowledge and a longing to return for more.
