US$ 1,187

FIRST-CLASS | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Explore two of the great cities of antiquity on this journey to Cairo and Alexandria. Your journey begins in Cairo, where you’ll see the pyramids and the Sphinx. Then connect to Alexandria on the Mediterranean to see Pompey’s Pillar and the Alexandria Library.


This 5-day Egyptian vacation takes you to the two great cities of Cairo and Alexandria. It features a choice of first-class or deluxe accommodations and private tours. 

Your journey begins in Cairo, the Egyptian capital and largest city in the Middle East. You’ll head on a private tour to discover the city’s immense cultural and historical legacy. Travel back in time with a full-day trip to Giza, Memphis, and Sakkara. Start at Cheops Pyramid, also known as the Great Pyramid, which is the only remaining wonder of the ancient world. Gaze upon the mighty stones that for centuries constituted the largest structure in the world. Continue along to the nearby Great Sphinx, with its enigmatic face that mysteriously misses a nose, before reaching Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt. Close out your tour at magnificently-preserved Sakkara, where you’ll see the oldest pyramid in the nation, the step pyramid of King Zoser. 

Connect to Alexandria on the coast, which offers a Mediterranean counterpoint to busy Cairo. A full day tour will explore some of the historical highlights of this city that used to be one of the greatest cities of antiquity. You’ll see Pompey’s Pillar, a red granite structure honouring the Emperor Diocletian that stands 27m tall. Continue to El Montazah Gardens, lavish 19th-century gardens that capture the verdant beauty of the city. Close out your tour at the Alexandria Library, a stunningly-designed modern building that resurrects the spirit of the ancient Great Library of Alexandria. Head back to Cairo for one more night based on Tahrir Square in the heart of the city. 

At the end of your stay, you’ll connect to the airport to return home.
