Gaze in awe at Cheops (Khufu) – the largest of the three great pyramids. Constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks it is thought to have taken more than 20 years to construct.

Highlights of the visit include the Colossi of Memnon, a massive pair of statues that stand silent against a historic backdrop, the Valleys of the Kings and the awesome colonnaded Temple of Queen Hatshepsut.

The Valley of the Kings is studded with often highly decorated tombs, constructed to once house the regal sarcophagi enclosed mummies of the mighty pharaohs awaiting passage into the after-life.

This afternoon after lunch and time to relax we visit the colossal Temple of Karnak, with its stone-columned Hypostle Hall. Tonight, we return by overnight sleeper train to Cairo.

The first stop is at the three iconic pyramids known as Cheops, Chephren and Myrcerinus. Set on the West Bank of the River Nile these age-old pyramids are the sole survivors from the Great Wonders of the Ancient World, and are one of the planet’s oldest tourist attractions. Originally built as royal tombs during Egypt’s Old and Middle Kingdom Periods, they are riddled with a maze of passage ways designed to protect the Mummies of the Pharaohs and the treasures which they would take with them to the afterlife. There will also be an opportunity to snap a few photos with the world-famous Sphinx, an impressive 50 metre tall statue with the body of a feline and head of a human carved out of a single piece of rock.

Later move on to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, which boasts an impressive collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts.

Alexandria
Departing early in the morning drive north towards the Mediterranean coast to the cosmopolitan city of Alexandria, which in its founding days was at the centre of the Ancient World, and at times rivalled the great cities of Athens and Rome. Although today Alexandria is a thriving metropolis you can still find evidence of its prestigious past, as hip cafes and restaurants sit side-by-side with ancient monuments, vibrant souks, and Roman catacombs.

Heading underground explore the ancient Kom al-Shoqafa catacombs. The vast network of staircases, passages and tombs are thought to form the largest Roman burial site in Egypt, and was only unearthed in the beginning of the 20th century when a donkey disappeared under the ground. The next stop is at Pompey’s Pillar, a monolithic red granite column standing 28 metres tall, before driving past the new Library of Alexandria, to the gates of the grand Montaza Palace. Later visit the exterior of the Citadel of Qaitbay, a massive 15th century defence fort built on the northern tip of Pharos Island, before beginning the drive back to Cairo.
