No memorable visit to Egypt is more impressive than the Pyramids of Giza. it’s one of the most recognizable monumental sites in history where you will be in direct contact with three enchanting pyramids dated back to the reign of the 4th dynasty. What is remarkable about Giza Pyramids is that they are not the same size; the largest pyramid is dedicated to King Cheops and it was served as the hideout of the king’s treasures and his mummy.
The featured image of the Giza Pyramids Complex is a massive sculpture of a human-headed lion constructed upon the order of Pharaoh Chephren and many myths believed that its head indicated to the king himself. What’s unrecognizable till today is that how the Sphinx gained its name and what it means. However, most historians indicated that “Sphinx” is a Greek word that means the living image.
The Valley Temple is a funerary temple used for King Khafre and his family members and it also served as one of the most remarkable spots used for mummification and purification in Ancient Egypt.
You will be taken to enjoy your lunch at a super deluxe restaurant then move to visit

The Hanging Church is one of the oldest Coptic attractions in Cairo which is also named “The Church of the Virgin Mary“. It’s an amazing thing to know that the name of the church comes from the site location; it was created atop the walls of the Roman Fortress of Babylon.
Amr Ibn Al-Aas is one of the most impressive figures in Islamic history since he introduced Islam to Egypt in 640 AD. After he settled in Egypt, he constructed a new city in the heart of Cairo called “Fustat” in the north of Babylon Fortress and Amr Ibn Al-Aas mosque was the remarkable site in the city.
Ben Ezra Synagogue is regarded as the most popular Jewish temple in Coptic Cairo which dated back to the 9th century AD. Some myths believed that the synagogue was constructed on the site where the pharaoh’s daughter found Moses hidden.
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) is the first museum of its kind in the Middle East and the Arab world that showcases the enchanting culture and history of Egypt from the pre-historical times till our current day in the most incredible and welcoming fashion.
