3 Days 2 Nights Cairo-Alex Itinerary​


At 8:45am a Travel Joy Egypt Egyptologist will pick you up from your Cairo hotel for an illuminating day of sightseeing. The first highlight is a close encounter with the legendary Great Pyramids of Giza - Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. Marvel at their immense scale and engineering feats from ancient times.

Next we journey to the enigmatic Sphinx, and nearby Valley Temple complex that once served the Fourth Dynasty pharaohs. Our adventure then takes us to Dahshur to view the Step Pyramid of King Djoser, considered a prime example of early monumental architecture in Egypt. Within its limestone casing lies a core of mudbricks dating back to the Old Kingdom period.

We continue to Saqqara to explore extraordinary rock-cut tombs adorned with vibrant reliefs that have withstood millennia. The artistic scenes come alive alongside hieroglyphic texts offering clues to Egyptian customs. Up next is the Memphis Museum presenting treasures from the reign of Ramses II, including a monumental colossus and alabaster Sphinx.

This afternoon we return to your hotel, rested and enriched by discoveries at some of Egypt's most seminal historical sites. This evening a luxury Nile dinner cruise awaits, transporting us to the rhythms of ancient Egypt against the iconic river backdrop. Food, fellowship and entertainment combine for an experience to remember.


In the morning at 7am, our guide will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo to begin the Alexandria adventure. The first stop is one of the city's most unusual attractions - the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa. Dating back to Roman times, this sprawling underground network of tombs was carved entirely by hand from the area's solid rock formations. Next, we journey to the seafront to glimpse Pompey's Pillar, an iconic landmark and ancient tribute to the Emperor Diocletian.

After working up an appetite exploring Alexandria's layered history, we'll enjoy a local lunch. Then it's time to visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Qaitbey Citadel for awe-inspiring views of the Mediterranean from its lofty perch. We end the afternoon with a visit to two archaeological treasures - the impressive ruins of the Roman Theatre, and the site that once housed the famed Alexandria Library, a center of learning in antiquity.

By late afternoon we'll head back to Cairo, with lifelong memories from our excursion through one of Egypt's most culturally rich coastal cities. I hope this overview provides a helpful glimpse into your upcoming Alexandria adventures! Please let me know if you need any additional details.


Our guide will pick you up from your hotel after breakfast for the final day of sightseeing in the bustling capital. Our first port of call is the Citadel of Saladin, perched high on a hill and accessed via its scenic lunar landscape pathway. Constructed in the 12th century from limestone quarried from Giza, it offers panoramic Old Cairo views and a historical mosque complex.

Next we refuel with lunch before delving into the world's finest ancient Egyptian collection at the Egyptian Museum. Tutankhamun's treasures are a highlight, alongside royal mummies, jewelry and colossal statues.

In the afternoon we travel back in time to experience Coptic Cairo's religious heritage. The Hanging Church of St. Mary marks Egypt's transition to Christianity, while the Coptic Museum's collection of icons and manuscripts provides unique cultural insights. Our tour concludes further along the route taken by the Holy Family near the Cave Church they resided in.

To end on a lively note we wind our way to the storied alleys and markets of Khan el-Khalili bazaar. Watch local artisans at work before our return transfer to your hotel, fulfilling three unforgettable days exploring Egypt's history through its people, places and past.

This comprehensive 3-day tour offers visitors an ideal introduction to some of Egypt's most celebrated historical destinations in a relaxed and stress-free manner. From marveling at ancient wonders to exploring cosmopolitan cities, guests are assured an enlightening and enjoyable vacation experience through Travel Joy Egypt's excellent services.

Perfect trip Toda nuestra estancia en Egipto fue increíble gracias a Travel Joy. Se aseguraron de que mi mamá y yo pasáramos los mejores 12 días recorriendo Cairo, Aswan, Luxor y Hurghada. Kero y Emily estuvieron siempre pendientes de que todo saliera bien y que la coordinación del viaje fuera excelente! Además nos ayudaron con todas las reservas y con cada favor que les pedimos durante nuestra estadía. No podemos estar más felices de haber tenido a Mito y a Mohamed como nuestros guías. Hablan excelente español y contestaron todas nuestras preguntas acerca de los templos. Sin duda regresaremos a Egipto y volveremos a escoger a Travel Joy como nuestro host. Nos vamos muy contentas y sintiéndonos como si hubiéramos estado con amigos estos días.

Memorable multi-city tour of Egypt Our group of 13 had a memorable multi-city tour of Egypt thanks to Travel Joy and guide Mostafa. Over 6 months of planning ensured smooth sailing from start to finish. Comfortable transit aboard a spacious Toyota Coaster added enjoyment between destinations. We were delighted by most aspects of the 3-night deluxe Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, taking in iconic sights along the river. A road trip to Abu Simbel and Alexandria broadened cultural horizons outside Cairo as well. Our dedicated guide Mostafa and his cheerful team, including Omar and Kiro, anticipated every need with excellent hospitality. Relying on their local expertise enhanced appreciation for Egypt's rich history. While optional excursions hold value exploring off-itinerary, do thorough research beforehand. Knowing typical pricing prevents potential mismatches in expectations. When time permits, leisurely browsing artisan workshops and perfumeries can also prove rewarding after confirmed interest and minor negotiation. Overall, Travel Joy Egypt delivered wonderful memories through meticulous coordination. I'm grateful for their passion in sharing this magnificent land and cultures with visitors from around the world.
