You will stop at the Necropolis to take impressive photos of the pyramids and then you will visit the Chephren’s Pyramid and you will have time to admire the details of the ancient Egyptian architecture. You will also have the chance to see the Statue of the mysterious Sphinx, whose expression gave birth to the myth of the enigmas posed to the travellers who were passing by the Sphinx during ancient times.

You will continue your tour by boat and travel over the great river Nile. On board of the cruise you will be able to enjoy a lunch from a deluxe buffet and also a folklore show.

Afterwards, you will disembark the cruise and follow your guide to a visit at Ibn Touloun Mosque, built by Al Amir Ahmed Ibn Touloun, one of the biggest and most important mosques in Cairo. It is famous for its minarets, the exceptional architecture and the interior decoration.
