Your Itinerary

Step Pyramid of Djoser

Saqqara: Your Egyptologist will pick you up in the morning to experience the impeccably rich history of Saqqara, which has been the largest and oldest cemetery in the world! Consisting of over 85,000 tombs including the latest discoveries in October 2020 of 59 fresh coffins. You will be professionally guided through the finest tombs of the nobles, whose exquisitely rich walls depict the daily life of Ancient Egypt. First, you will enjoy the scent of the past by wandering around the marvelous Step Pyramid of King Djoser, which was the very first freestanding stone structure in history! Imhotep, this structure’s renowned architect had honored his Pharaoh with such a magnificent tomb, whose pyramid features six steps resembling the Pharaoh’s ascension to heaven!

Admission Included

Memphis and Sakkara

Memphis: Next, you will visit the ancient center of culture and authority, Memphis. It is where the craftsmen community required all the sculpted statues to honor the kings they represented. Memphis was home to the second largest Sphinx, and the giant legendary, King Ramses II’s statue.

Admission Included

Pyramids of Dahshour

Dahshur: Then, you sink deep into the heart of the barren desert in Dahshur, gazing upon and admiring two of Egypt’s ever best-preserved early pyramids, which were built during the reign of King Sneferu (2,613-2,589 BC), the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid! These two monuments are yet considered to be an undisputed evidence of the architectural development preceding the proclaimed great pyramid. The Bent Pyramid having the angle of its sides changed abruptly, hence getting its title, archeologists attribute this outstanding anomaly to an engineering crisis during construction. Where the Red Pyramid, on the other hand, was the first smooth-sided pyramid ever built!

This was thr best tour we could have asked for! Rasha was the best guide ee could have asked for, she made us feel like family. Thr tours were exceptional, we learned so much! It was really the best experience, I would recommend this tour to everyone. Especially using Rasha.

Rasha was great! We booked our entire Egypt tour through her agency and it was great! Although she only accompanied us in Cairo, the other guides she arranged for Luxor, Aswan and Alexandria were super knowledgeable as well. Highly recommend touring with Rasha, her English is perfect and she’s extremely knowledgeable about ancient and modern Egypt!

bbjextra

Egypt is one of our top travel destinations. We have traveled to every continent. Rasha made the Egypt tour enlightening and memorable. We especially appreciated that the tour was tailored to our specific interests and the interests of our grandchildren. The itinerary was jam packed, yet there was no information overload. Rasha was the very best tour guide among the many places we have visited across the globe. She is clearly a world class guide.

We have travelled quite a bit and had many tours…. This was by far the best. We spent 4 days on private tour with Cherif & Heny in Cairo. The communication for the booking and throughout the 4 days was exceptional. The air conditioned cars were fantastic and the drivers were very friendly and helpful. Cherif was the best tour guide we have ever had. His knowledge was astounding, he was great at getting the information across in a way that was interesting for us and our 2 kids (10 years and 8 years). Cherif took us to the best sites, museums, pyramids, bazaars, Christian areas, mosques and restaurants. We felt safe and enjoyed our whole trip thanks to Cherif and his team. I strongly recommend group or private tours with the Egypt tour specialists. We will certainly be back in the coming years to check out other parts of Egypt + Jordan and we will do this as a private tour with Cherif and his team.

Our tour was amazing! Learned so much. A very pleasant, private tour. Our tour guide Fady was awesome and very knowledgeable. Worth every penny! Thank you Fady for an awesome time!

We visited a farm in Dahshour. One of the farmers met us and showed us the lettuces and vegetables in the field. They served us roasted sweet potatoes and herbal tea. Everything was very delicious. We also watched two women weave baskets from the reeds that grow by the water canals. That was enjoyable! As we were leaving the farm, we could see some pyramids in the distance, one being the Bent pyramid.

I dont know whether to rate Sherif an A+ or an A++? this was one of the most life changing experiences anyone can ever have. the fact that we had someone like Sherif taking us around only added to the experience. I dont think there was a more thorough, patient, friendlier guide out there. the service was top notch. The history that he spoke of and how passionate he was made it feel like we made one of the best decisions ever. Sherif was always available day and night, he didn't mind repeating himself, and he was happy to talk about everything. I don't think you can come to Egypt without going through Sherif. When we come back to Egypt, we will definitely be going right back. I don't think you can pick a better guide.

Fabulous tours! A group of us were in Cairo for a wedding and did three days of amazing tours. The Pyramids, Sphinx, Museum, Churches, Mosque, lunch, and shopping. It was wonderful! Sherif was our guide. He was exceptionally knowledgeable with Egypt today, the history, culture,and, the religions. He brought in humor ex: Egyptian driving. The bus driver had water and hand sanitizers, there was a photographer, a clean bus. I would highly recommend The Egypt Tour Specialist!

We have had the best tour ever. I was in Egypt with my fiancé, and Semsem took care of us from the moment we arrived to the airport until we took our flight back to Hurghada where we stayed the rest of our holiday. Semsem is extremely knowledgeable about the Egyptian history and culture. He explains everything in an easy fun language that made us enjoy listening to his speeches and learn a lot. Thank you for such an amazing tour. We will definitely recommend your tours to all our friends.

“Sem Sem,” as he is fondly known to his tourist friends, is an excellent tour guide. I have traveled many countries in the world and met many tour guides but no one else has been more memorable than this man. He is kind, knowledgeable, and funny. I would go on any of his tours again in a heartbeat. On top of it all, he is a gem of a person and one that you will not forget soon. Highly recommend to everyone.
