We’ll have two full days to explore Egypt’s capital. There are some great museums to explore where you learn about the wonders of ancient Egypt.

The Pyramids of Giza are the only surviving Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Khufu’s pyramid is built from over 2 million blocks. We’ll ride on camels to visit the Sphinx.

Flight to Luxor and check into our luxury hotel. We’ll visit the Tomb of the Nobles – here you’ll find the tombs of 400 Theban aristocrats.
