Today Cairo Tours– The Great Sphinx and the Egyptian Pyramids at Giza which despite centuries of study, the Pyramids remain a mystery. There’s their age: we are closer in time to the era of Jesus Christ than he was to the Pyramids. There’s their size: for 4,000 years the Great Pyramid remained the tallest man- made structure ever built. There’s the how: the Pyramids are precisely placed, their sides aligning to true north with only 3/60th a degree of error, while certain internal air shafts line up perfectly with celestial constellations. And, of course, there’s the why: merely tombs for pharaohs or something much more… Continue your Cairo Tours by visiting the Egyptian Museum, All of ancient Egyptian history is here, from the earliest Pharaonic artefact ever discovered to treasures from the era of Cleopatra, the last in a dynastic sequence of divine kings and queens stretching over three millennia. It is said that the museum displays more than 120,000 items, with at least that many again stored away out of sight in the basement. The real crowd pleasers are the treasures from Tutankhamun’s tomb, but there are many hundreds of other precious antiquities here of at least equal significance and beauty.

Overnight in Nile Cruising | Meals: Lunch, Dinner
Luxor- Nile Cruising (Optional) hot-air balloon excursions over Luxor. Weather permitting, You leave at dawn from sites on the West Bank and ﬂights last about 30–40 minutes. Before we tour to Valley of the Kings, During the greatest period of ancient Egyptian history almost every pharaoh was buried here in tombs hewn into the rock and decorated with extraordinary art. To date, 63 tombs have been discovered and there may still be more to come, making this the richest archaeological site on earth. The numbers assigned to the tombs (given here in brackets) represent the order in which they were discovered, but a better way to approach the valley is to visit the tombs in the order in which they were constructed, as they are presented here. In this way it is possible to witness the flowering and eventual decline of ancient Egyptian tomb art. Move on to visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, This is the most intriguing of the temples and tombs on Luxor’s West Bank, partly due to the breathtaking spectacle it presents- a series of sweeping terraces set against a vertiginous mountain backdrop- and partly because the temple was built for the only woman to reign over Egypt as pharaoh. When her husband Tuthmosis II died young, Hatshepsut became regent to her step-son Tuthmosis III, later usurping him altogether to take the crown for herself. She reigned from 1473 until 1458 BC- End your tour by visiting The Colossal of Memnon. Later you will be driven back to your Nile Cruise in Luxor.
