A Day In The Life: Pyramids Day Tour from Alexandria Port

You will be picked up upon arrival in Alexandria port by your private guide and private car and head to Cairo.

Arrive in Cairo and explore the Great Pyramids, ancient Memphis, Saqqara, the Solar Boat, Chephren Pyramid, and the famous Sphinx. 

Learn about the Great Pyramids of Giza and how they were covered with casing stones. The casing stones were made of highly polished limestone. The ancient Egyptians covered the Great Pyramids with casing stones so it can reflect the sun’s light. The reflected sun’s light with the casing stone made the pyramid shine and look like a jewel.

Learn about Queen Nefertiti in your pyramids day tour

Queen Nefertiti

The original look of the Great Pyramids with its shining casing stones would act like huge mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be very visible from the moon as a shining star on the earth. No wonder why the ancient Egyptians called the Great Pyramid “Ihket” which means the glorious light.

This tour includes a private vehicle with driver, a trained Egyptologist, and entry to the Chephren (Khafre) or Menkaure (Mycerinus) Pyramids, as well as the Solar Boat. A buffet lunch at a great local restaurant is provided after visiting the Great Pyramids.

After lunch, discover the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities and its Mummy Room with your private trained Egyptologist guide. The museum holds the tomb of King Tut, Egypt’s most famous boy King.
