Full Description

Alexandria port to the Pyramids with Cairo Museum day tour will provide you with a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the history and culture of ancient Egypt and see the incredible architectural wonders of this amazing country.

Excursion to Cairo from Alexandria cruise port

A tour of the Cairo Museum and the Pyramids of Giza from the port of Alexandria is a fascinating journey through the historical and cultural riches of Egypt. The port of Alexandria is on the northern coast of Egypt, while the Pyramids of Giza and the Cairo Museum are located in Cairo, in the south of the country. The distance from the port of Alexandria to the Pyramids of Giza is approximately 220-240 kilometers, depending on the route and road conditions. This is approximately 2.5-3 hours by bus.

Excursion to the Pyramids of Giza

Our first stop will be on the Giza plateau at the foot of the Egyptian Pyramids. Upon arrival in Cairo, our English-speaking guide will meet you at the entrance to the pyramid complex, where you will begin your.

The Pyramids of Giza are massive structures built over 4,500 years ago. These include:

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only surviving miracle of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Its height is more than 138 meters and is an amazing engineering structure.

The Pyramid of Khafre is the second largest after the Great Pyramid of Cheops. The height of the pyramid is about 136 meters, and its base measures approximately 215 meters by 215 meters. The Pyramid of Khafre has a distinctive top layer of smooth dark green diorite, which gives it a distinctive appearance.

Pyramid of Menkaure - this pyramid is significantly smaller in size compared to the pyramids of Cheops and Khafre. It is only 65 meters high and has a base measuring approximately 108 meters by 108 meters. Much of the cladding of the Pyramid of Menkaure was removed over time, leaving only a portion of the upper layers. The pyramid of Menkaure is adjacent to many small pyramids, mastabas and temples that served for various religious and ritual purposes.

Near the pyramids of Giza there is a famous and mysterious Great Sphinx of Giza - a huge sculpture with a lion's head and a human body.

Sightseeing tour of Cairo Museum

After lunch at a local restaurant, we will continue our tour and go to the Egyptian Museum, where the treasures of the pharaohs await us. In the museum you will see riches found in the tombs of ancient pharaohs, including gold treasures, jewelry and precious stones.

Sculptures and Statues: The museum has a magnificent collection of ancient sculptures and statues, including the famous statue of Cheops, the pharaoh who built the Great Pyramid.

Mummies and Sarcophagi: Although the most famous royal mummies have been moved to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, you will still have the opportunity to see the mummies of the ancient Egyptians and their colorfully decorated sarcophagi.

Amarna Period Exhibits: The museum has a rich and unique collection from the historical period of the reign of Pharaoh Akhenaten.
