What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day private shore excursion from Alexandria cruise ship terminal, and take a tour of some of Egypt’s most memorable sights. After your arrival at Alexandria Port, your private Egyptologist guide will meet you for the 2.5-hour journey to Giza.
One of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient world, and the only one to remain virtually intact, the mysterious monuments are an essential part of any visit to Egypt. In Giza you will explore the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the middle Pyramid of Chephren, and the small Pyramid of Mykerinos, with the option to explore inside one of the pyramids on your own.
Continue to the great Sphinx with its notable head of a man and body of a lion. End your tour of the archaeological site with a walk through the Valley Temple.
Lunch will be served at a local restaurant, before the tour continues to Sakkara, site of Egypt's oldest cemetery. En route, visit some workshops to see craftsmen making Egyptian handicrafts, such as papyrus, blown glass, and handmade carpets.
Upon arrival at Sakkara, admire the first monumental pyramid to be built in Egypt at the Step Pyramid of King Djoser. Then, visit the tombs of noble Egyptians and admire the hieroglyphs and inscriptions, many dating back more than 4,000 years. Return to Alexandria Port.
