See the Wonders of Pyramids & Sail the Nile River

Standard DreamTrip 
Take a full-day tour of the Giza pyramids — including the Great Sphinx — as well as UNESCO-protected Historic Cairo & Egyptian Museum full of priceless treasures before a nighttime dinner cruise on the Nile. Book by February 1.

About Your Trip

Journey to Cairo, a land of legendary pharaohs and pyramids, to get an inside look at the city’s culture and history. Visitors are attracted to its astonishing cultural monuments, sophisticated cuisine and electrifying atmosphere — it’s a thrilling city, defined equally by its antiquity and modern sensibilities. Wonderful experiences await — and their memories will stay with you long after you return home!

On this exciting DreamTrip, you’ll travel to the Saladin Citadel of Cairo, part of UNESCO-protected Historic Cairo. This imposing fortification, built in 1183, houses museums and mosques such as the Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha, built in 1848 of alabaster. Continue to the Egyptian Museum where thousands of artifacts are on exhibit, including the funeral mask of Tutankhamun, mummies of animals and items from the tombs of ancient pharaohs. Then, get ready the Giza pyramid complex. It’s like time stands still as you view these massive structures arising from the desert. Walk around and get a sense of the enormity of the human endeavor that built them.
Before the day is over, you’ll visit even more — Old Egypt, Khan el-Khalili souk and a place known for essential oils and perfume bottles or an Egyptian carpet-making village.

The next evening, see Cairo from another perspective on a boat ride on the Nile River. Cruise along the shoreline for amazing views, and enjoy entertainment by hypnotic belly dancers and colorful Tanoura dancers.

From your base at gorgeous Steigenberger Hotel El Tahrir Cairo, you can do as much — or as little — as you like. Relax at the pool or in the lobby lounge, or take to the streets and see all the city has to offer. Check out the Egyptian Textile Museum to see goods such as clothes, cushions and linens. At Manial Palace and Museum, see what royal life was like with its complex of buildings that features art collections, furnishings and hunting trophies. If you like ruins, check out the Babylon Fortress in Coptic Cairo and nearby Hanging Church.

What we love:
• The Giza pyramid complex comprises 3 main pyramids — Great Pyramid of Giza, Pyramid of Menkaure and Pyramid of Khafre — as well as the Great Sphinx of Giza, cemeteries, funerary temples, valley temples and smaller queen pyramids.
• Cairo Opera House hosts operas and ballets in its large performance hall, while its open-air theater is for smaller performances like recitals.

Destination

While Cairo was established in 939, the area has been continuously inhabited for 4,000 years with the ancient settlement of Memphis just southwest of the city. It’s in Saqqara that the first pyramid, the Pyramid of Djoser, was built. Later, in 2,500 B.C.E., on a plateau on the west bank of the Nile, the Giza pyramids began construction as tombs for the remains of Pharaohs as well as items they may need in the afterlife. The Great Pyramid took 20 years, 2 million blocks of stone and 20,000 workers to complete — although this theory, and other speculations about the pyramids, are highly debated among scholars.

Today, Cairo is the largest city in the Arab world with a population of 20 million people. Set on the banks of the Nile, it contains hundreds of registered historic monuments and the oldest university on the planet, Al-Azhar Mosque located in Islamic Cairo.
