Great Pyramids of Giza
The Great Pyramids of Giza, dating back to 2500 BC, are some of the most famous manmade objects in the world. While there are actually over one hundred Pyramids in Egypt, including at least eight more at Giza, the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) is the only "Wonder of the Ancient World" that still survives.
Great Sphinx of Giza
During your visit at The Great Pyramids of Giza, there is no escaping the mysterious Sphinx, a symbol which has come to represent the essence of Egypt for thousands of years. With the body of a lion and the head of a king, there is as much mystery surrounding who built it as there is determining why it was built.
The Egyptian Museum
A visit to the Egyptian Museum at Tahrir square is an absolute must on any visit to Cairo. It was built during the reign of Khedive Abbass Helmi II in 1897 and opened in 1902. With 107 halls you can explore the history of Pharaonic Egypt through the 120,000 artifacts exhibited, from Narmer to Akhenaton and Ramses. On the upper floor is the famous collection of King Tutankhamen treasures. The pharaoh is indeed gone, but his treasures and life still fascinate us today.
Khan El-Khalili Bazaars
Not just any market, but one of the most historic markets in the world. Founded by the Emir Djaharks el-Khalili in 1382, the khan was responsible for developing such a stranglehold on goods moving from the Eastern world to the West that it is indirectly responsible for the discovery of the American continent. The spice markets in the Khan, a monopoly controlled by the ruling Mamluks of Egypt, forced explorers such as Columbus to find alternate routes for goods coming from the East.
Memphis, founded around 3,100 BC, is the legendary city of Menes, the King who united Upper and Lower Egypt. Early on, Memphis was more like a fortress from which Menes controlled the land and water routes between Upper Egypt and the Delta. Having probably originated in Upper Egypt, he could control the conquered people of Lower Egypt from Memphis. Tradition tells us that Menes founded the city by creating dykes to protect the area from Nile floods. Afterwards, this great city of the Old Kingdom became the administrative and religious center of Egypt.
Sakkara is one section of the great necropolis of Memphis, the Old Kingdom capital. Three major discoveries have recently been made at Sakkara including a prime minister's tomb, a queen's pyramid, and the tomb of the son of a dynasty founding king. Sakkara is best known for the Step Pyramid, the oldest known of Egypt's 97 pyramids. It was built for King Djoser of the 3rd Dynasty by the architect and genius Imhotep, who designed it and its surrounding complex to be as grand as it was unique and revolutionary. Imhotep was the first to build stone tombs in honor of the king's majesty.
Solar Boat
Stretching almost 150 feet (46 meters) in length, some of the boat's timbers are made from whole cedars of Lebanon. The prow sweeps upward, with a papyrus end, while the bow curves inward and is tipped with a carved papyrus blossom. There are hand carved oars and ropes so ahead of their time that they might have been made today. The boat's state of preservation is remarkable and is often considered one of the most fantastic finds since Tutankhamen's tomb.
Citadel of Salah el-Din with Alabaster Mosque, one of Cairo's most popular tourist attractions, the Citadel is located on a spur of limestone that had been detached from its parent Moqattam Hills by quarrying. The Citadel is one of the world's greatest monuments to medieval warfare, as well as a highly visible landmark on Cairo's eastern skyline. Particularly when viewed from the back side, the Citadel reveals a very medieval character. Legend has it that Salah Ad-Din chose the site for its healthy air. The story goes that he hung pieces of meat up all around Cairo. The meat spoilt within a day everywhere except in the Citadel area, where it remained fresh for several days. But in reality this location provides a strategic advantage both to dominate Cairo and to defend outside attackers.
Sultan Hassan
The Mosque and Madrassa (school) of Sultan Hassan, was built between 1356 and 1363, and is believed to be one of the finest examples of Mamluk architecture in Cairo. The mosque is also considered one of the largest not only in Cairo but in the whole Islamic world. It is a massive structure measuring some 492 feet (150 meters) long and 118 feet (36 meters) high. The tallest minaret is 223 feet (68 meters) tall.
Coptic Cairo - The Hanging Church, Abu Serga and Ben Ezra
The main entrance to Coptic Cairo (Old Cairo) is through perhaps one of the two oldest structures in Cairo, the rounded towers of the western gate of the Roman fortress of Babylon built in 98 AD by Emperor Trajan. The Southern gate is the other oldest structure.

The Hanging Church (The Church of the Virgin Mary) is built into the walls of the Water Gate of the Roman fortress. It is possibly the oldest Christian church in Egypt, dating to around the 4th Century. From here, exit the first entrance due to construction work in the area and head up Mar Gerguis north a few steps to a second entrance. This entrance leads into the Monastery and Church of St George This is not an old church, dating only from 1909, but there has been a church in Coptic Cairo dedicated to the Martyr since the 10th century.

Turn left outside the door to St George and the path leads to the Church of St Sergius (Abu Serga), which legend has it is built atop one of the sites where the Holy Family rested on their flight from Herod. Continuing on this path brings one forth to the Ben Ezra Synagogue which is Egypt's oldest and dates to the 9th Century.
Buffet Dinner Cruise on the Nile Pharaoh
The three levels Nile Pharaoh offer you an entertaining and relaxing evening cruise on the Nile River, the world's longest waterway. This is the only themed boat operating in Cairo with everything decorated in a Pharaonic style.

The house band performs your all-time favorite western and oriental tunes, with a twist, as you dine on a buffet dinner.

The dinner cruise includes spectacular belly dancing and a folklore band, with the unforgettable and extraordinarily colorful Tanoura spin (in keeping with Egypt's Whirling Dervishes tradition). The Nile Pharaoh offers an entertainment experience sure to be embalmed in your memory!
Pharaonic Village
The Pharaonic Village began, like so many other great wonders of our world, with a dream of Dr.
Hassan Ragab, already famous for his rediscovery of the ancient techniques for making papyrus, had begun to ponder the possibility of a living museum with real people, actors in costume and in a realistic locale, taking the place of static exhibits. The Pharaonic Village is a living museum of ancient Egyptian life where visitors can sail on a network of canals and view the remarkably realistic recreation of the past.
