Today we visit the Pyramids of Giza. Rising above the beige coloured desert sand, the Pyramids at Giza Plateau are the planet’s oldest tourist attraction. Gaze in awe at Cheops (Khufu) - the largest of the three great pyramids. Constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks, it is thought to have taken more than 20 years to construct. Afterward we tour the tomb-strewn necropolis of Saqqara , featuring King Zhoser’s step pyramid, constructed by Imhotep, the pharaoh’s chief architect in 2700 BC, this was the template for all future pyramid construction.

Egyptian Museum & Islamic Cairo

Cairo – Luxor. This morning we venture to old Islamic Cairo and the Egyptian Museum, home to the most extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the world. Arguably the most famous exhibit is the stunning solid gold funerary mask of the boy-King Tutankhamen. An entire gallery is devoted to the treasures unearthed by Howard Carter at Tutankhamen’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. This evening we board the overnight sleeper train to Luxor.

Day 4

At over 4000 years old, Luxor really is ancient Egypt at its best! This morning we travel to the West Bank to visit the legendary Valleys of the Kings & Queens and Temple of Hatshepsut. The Valley of the Kings was constructed to house the regal sarcophagi-enclosed mummies of the mighty pharaohs, awaiting their passage into the after-life. Some of the best known tombs are those of Ramses II, Seti I, Amenhotep II and of course, the tomb of King Tutankhamen. In all, more than 60 tombs have been excavated. This evening there is an optional visit to the Luxor Temple by horse-drawn carriage. The Luxor Temple is beautifully illuminated at night.
