PYRAMIDS OF GIZA
The last remaining wonder of the ancient world. For nearly 4000 years, the extraordinary shape, impeccable geometry and sheer bulk of the Giza Pyramids has remained. Your private Egyptologist and driver will spend the day with you at the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx and Saqqara Archeologist Site.
One of the world’s most important collections of ancient artifacts, the Egyptian Museum takes pride of place in Downtown Cairo, on the north side of Midan Tahrir. Inside the great domed, oddly pinkish building, the glittering treasures of Tutankhamun and other great pharaohs lie alongside the grave goods, mummies, jewelry, eating bowls and toys of Egyptians whose names are lost to history. Your private Egyptologist will walk you through the museum and take you on an adventure through time.
After a quick flight to Aswan, you will check into your accommodations at the iconic Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Hotel.
