3 Days in Cairo... would appreciate an itinerary critique :)

We will be in Cairo for 3 days as part of our Middle East tour. Any suggestions/recommendations for my itinerary? We are staying at the Kempinski Nile Hotel Cairo.

Tues Dec 22: Arrive from Amman at 9:30 PM.

Wed Dec 23: The pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx and Saqqara. Is it worth visiting the Solar Boat Museum / Memphis? If so, would it fit into Wed's itinerary? Any recommended tours?

Thurs Dec 24: Day trip to Alexandria. Maybe a nile dinner cruise in the PM when we return to Cairo.

Fri Dec 25: Visit Old Cairo, Egyptian Museum, Islamic-Cairo, and Khan el-Khalili bazaar. Then take sleeping Train from Giza to Aswan leaving at 8:30 PM.

Thanks!!

My group is traveling to Egypt this December. I'm not an expert, but I've been reading through LOTS of suggestions and itineraries. I can answer your first question. Yes you have plenty of time to add Memphis/boat museum on Wednesday. Your day will start out early and end around 4/5pm-ish. That's the exact itinerary that my group has planned for a day, including lunch. You'll have your evening/night free to relax or go out some more!

Have a great time!!!!
