Full description

Explore Ancient Egypt. See the Pyramids, the Sphinx, and spend the night on the iconic Nile River.

Day 1:

Begin your journey to the past with an early morning pickup from your hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Arrive in Cairo, where you can explore the Egyptian Museum.

Enjoy a delicious meal at a traditional Egyptian restaurant. After your fantastic lunch, continue to see the famous Giza Pyramids and the iconic Great Sphinx. 

Board a beautiful Nile cruise ship. Enjoy a hearty meal during a spectacular show on board. Head to the deck and take in the view during the evening trip down the Nile. Spend the night aboard the cruise ship, lulled to sleep by the gentle rocking of the boat.

Day 2:

Head off early in the morning to Alexandria. Arrive at the Montazah Palace and marvel at the priceless works of art and stunning architecture. Wander around the massive gardens, taking in the warm Egyptian sun.

Explore the Graeco-Roman Museum and see stunning ancient sculptures from the Greek and Roman cultures. See the modern interpretation of the historic Alexandria Library, where you can experience the innovative Culturama Panorama. After a morning of sightseeing, relax with a fresh seafood lunch. 

Explore the important religious sites of Alexandria. Marvel at the stunning architecture of the historic Mosque of Abu el Abbas and its 240-foot tall minaret. See Egypt's largest church, Saint Mark's Coptic Orthodox Cathedral, and catch a glimpse of some of St. Mark's relics. 

Meander to Alexandria's coast and see the ancient Citadel of Qaitbay. Built on the sight of the famous Alexandria Lighthouse, this fortress served as the most important defensive structure on the

Mediterranean coast for centuries.

Tour was very good, there were a few issues with the nile boat, which the tour operator helped us with, the guide in Alexandria was very nice and we saw a lot of interesting sites in both locations. if a different operator was used for the nile cruise would easily be 5*

The tour was great. In particular, the second day with my guide Ossama in Alexandria was great. The first day had elements that resembled a coffee trip. Unfortunately, the PLV does not fit with bus transport between Hurghada and Cairo and back.
