Then you will be transferred to start your 2 days Cairo short vacation package. During your way, enjoy your local guide’s informative commentary throughout your tour. Feel free to ask any questions regarding Cairo history or culture.
Then you’ll start your amazing journey. Your first stop will be at Giza Pyramids where you will hear about Egypt’s history from your friendly guide. Giza Pyramids is known as the oldest monument of the ancient Wonders and the only one that still exists today. Listen to your guide when he tells you about how the pyramids had been constructed with very old and primitive techniques. The pyramids were mainly built to house the remains of the deceased Pharaohs.
Then move to the panoramic view area that clearly shows the three pyramids. This is an amazing spot to take some exciting pictures that will last a lifetime. Continue to visit the royal tomb guard the Great Sphinx, which belongs to king Chephren. It is a huge stone transformed into an amazing architectural statue with a head of a pharaoh and a lion’s body. The sphinx shows how powerful a king he was. You will have a chance to enjoy a photo stop while you kissing the great sphinx.
The tour includes a visit to the Valley Temple, which belongs to the Pyramids of Chephren to get a quick look at the tombs of the workers who built the pyramids.

(Optional ) if you are hungry you have a chance to tasting Egyptian meals that will be offered for lunch prepared with local products

Once we are finished at the pyramids, we will make our way to the Egyptian Museum. The museum contains 120,000 items and houses the world’s largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities, an extensive collection of papyrus, and Greek, Roman, and Islamic coins of the ancient world are located on the 1st floor.
There are thousands of statues, figures, and masks you can see in the museum but you must visit the Tut Ankh Amun’s section and see the Gold Mask of Tutankhamun and Royal sarcophagus. A must-see item is the Grave Mask of king Amenemope, Mummy mask of Psusennes I, Figurine of Khufu, Narmer Palette, and Merneptah Stele” which talks about Jewish exit from Egypt with prophet Moses.

(Optional ) to take your dinner cruises – with extra fees. After the Cairo pyramids and Egyptian museum Sightseeing tour, you will be dropped back off at your Cairo Hotel.

Day 2: Sakkara, Memphis & Dahshour:

After breakfast, our guide will pick you up from your Cairo hotel, hop onboard your coach, and move to visit Zoser Step Pyramid in Sakkara. It is the oldest burial ground during the old kingdom for nobles surrounded by the oldest complete stone building complex for non-royal burials, the famous Step pyramid of king Djoser with its 6 rectangular bases. It is considered the world’s first pyramids ever. The second stop will be at the ancient city of Memphis; which was an important administrative and military, trade, religious, and commercial center. The ruins of ancient Memphis today offer fragmented evidence of its Glory past.
The ruins of ancient Memphis have yielded the largest limestone statue of Rameses II Pharaoh. The last stop on our way to the south is to visit the Red Pyramid and Bent Pyramid at Dahshur. King Sneferu’s Bent Pyramid had not been made correctly. Yet, it was a great learning experience for the Egyptians and a step further for building Giza Pyramids. The Red Pyramid was the biggest and tallest pyramid standing in the kingdom until Sneferu’s son, Khufu, outdid his father by building his own pyramid at Giza plateau. When your time in Egypt comes to an end, our representative will transfer you to the airport and assist you at the airport through final departure Procedures and go back home with memories to cherish

Frequently asked questions about Spending 2 days in Cairo Egypt

Is it safe to visit the Pyramids

Definitely safe to explore Cairo and visit the pyramids, especially while being accompanied with your guide.

Here are some of the best tours to Pyramids:

https://bastettravel.com/egypt-day-tours/cairo-tours/cairo-day-tour/

Christian and Islamic Old Cairo Tour

 

Is it allowed to enter The Pyramids in Egypt

Tourists are allowed to enter all three of the great pyramids, for a fee, of course. That is, you can go into the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure as long as you pay for a ticket. That’s the good news.

The bad news starts with the mundane issues of how hard it can be to get inside. You must first pay for a ticket (around $20) for general admission to the grounds, then for an additional ticket for each pyramid, between about $5 and $15. The total amounts up fast, especially if you’re traveling with your family.

Second, ticket sales are not a smooth procedure. Changes occur in the process regularly, and you can never be sure of exactly what to expect. First, there’s often, but not always, a limit imposed on ticket sales for the smaller pyramids, those of Khufu and Khafre. This is usually 300 tickets per pyramid per day, but only 150 are offered in the morning, the rest are saved until the afternoon. People get annoyed and impatient and you may run into pushing and shoving.

Third, it is often, though not always, the case that if Khufu is open to visitors, Khafre is not and vice versa. The explanation is that this accommodates restoration work proceeding inside them. You may be unable to find this out before you go, that’s why Some say it’s better to sign up for an organized pyramid tour instead so someone else can handle arrangements.

Do I have to wear a hijab in Egypt?

Wrapping your head up, hijab style is not required in Egypt. However, you will find, if you make an effort to cover your head, that the locals are appreciative.

How many days do you need in Alexandria?

3 days

Most people will be able to cover all the major sites, and some minor ones, by spending 3 days in Alexandria. If you just want to visit a few of the major highlights, you can do this on a day trip from Cairo or by spending a full day and overnighting in Alexandria.

Is a day trip to Alexandria worth it?

Alexandria is definitely worth taking a day away from Cairo and from my recent trip, Alexandria was a breath of fresh air after spending 3 days in Cairo. If you do visit Alexandria, make sure to go to the hidden restaurant across the street from Library; it’s hidden along the water, behind massive modern sculptures.
