Here's your chance to see the best heritage of Cairo in just a couple of days. This fantastic tour will enable you to see the must-do attractions and have an insight into the history and culture of ancient and modern Egypt.

We will visit the massive Pyramids of Giza, the Great Pyramid (the only wonder of the ancient world standing on earth), the Sphinx, the cemetery of Saqqara, the Complex of King Zoser and the Stepped Pyramid.

We will also do the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities housing the breath-taking collection of king Tut-ankh-amon as well as masterpieces of other kings and queens. We will go around Old Cairo visiting the Citadel of Saladin, the Alabaster Mosque and the Grand Bazaar (Khan El-Khalili).

By the end of the tour you will be surprised how much you will see and learn in only two days. It's my pleasure to book your hotel at a reasonable price and pick you up at Cairo airport upon arrival into Cairo.
