What to expect
  • When your cruise ship is in Alexandria port, meet your guide and hop inside your private, air-conditioned minivan. Then, enjoy the views as you journey south through the Nile Valley to Cairo, Egypt’s bustling capital. On route, hear snippets about Cairo’s history and the Giza Pyramids, built about 4,500 years ago. After roughly three hours, arrive at the Giza Plateau and marvel at the exteriors of the UNESCO-listed main pyramids: Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus. Hear the secrets of these ancient tombs and how and why they were constructed from your guide. Then, descend to the feet of the Great Sphinx and learn about this mysterious human-headed lion sculpture. Capture photos and then stroll around the nearby Valley Temple, believed to have been part of the funerary and mummification complex for the pyramid of Chephren. Having explored Giza, continue by minivan to Sakkara, the site of a vast ancient necropolis set in the great Sahara Desert. On arrival, swap your vehicle for a 4x4, and enjoy a 20-minute ride into the desert, with a driver at the wheel. Stop to enjoy panoramas over Sakkara’s showpiece: the Step Pyramid of Djoser. Egypt’s oldest pyramid, this stepped tomb was built for the burial of the Pharaoh Djoser in the 27th century BC. Afterward, join a camel caravan, and enjoy a roughly 30-minute camel ride across the Saharan sands to the Sakkara Country Club hotel and resort. Here, absorb the resort's peaceful atmosphere and gardens, and refuel with a tasty late lunch. Your excursion then ends with a transfer back to Alexandria port in time for your ship departure.
