Detailed Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Arrive Cairo

    Ahlan wasahlan bekom fi Masr: Arde El Farahnah (Welcome to Egypt: the Land of the Pharaohs). Once you have arrived at the Arrivals Hall, after your short bus trip from your aeroplane, you will be welcomed by our Oriental Tours representative, who will be standing inside the doors holding a board showing your name. He will then help you purchase your visa (if applicable), get your currency exchanged to Egyptian Pounds (known as LE, which is short for Livre Égyptienne), and then take you through Passport Control. From here he will assist you with collecting your luggage, before escorting you to our waiting, air-conditioned, vehicle outside. You will then be taken to your hotel, with our representative explaining details of your package to you, en route, as well as answering any questions you may have. Upon arrival at your hotel he will assist you with check in, continue answering any questions from you.

    The rest of the day is free time for you, allowing you to relax and freshen-up after your flight, but should you wish an optional extra, such as a trip to the Giza Pyramids Sound and Light show or a River Nile dinner cruise, please feel free to ask our representative to arrange this for you.

    Overnight in your hotel in Cairo (X)

  2. Day 2: Cairo

    Once you have had your breakfast your guide will meet you and take you on a full day tour of Cairo. First of all you will be taken to Giza to see the world famous pyramids and sphinx. You will gaze in awe at the magnificent Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops): the last of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World, the pyramids of Khafre (Chephren), and Menkaure (Mycerinos), and then gaze in delight at the spectacle of the supreme Sphinx.

    A quick break for lunch (optional) and you will then be taken to the Egyptian Museum (or as it is officially known: The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities!). Marvel at the thousands of artefacts from Egypt’s almost eternal history, 160,000 items spread out over 107 rooms, and then be prepared for your face to face encounter with the golden Death Mask of Tutankhamun.

    From here you will be taken to the Citadel of Saladin, built on Cairo’s highest point: Mokattam Hill. Saladin erected the Citadel to protect Cairo, from the crusaders, between 1176 and 1183 CE and nowadays it houses 3 mosques (the Mosque of Muhammad Ali, the Al-Nasir Muhammad Qala'un Mosque, and the Mosque of Suleyman Pasha), 4 museums (Al-Gawhara Palace Museum, the Carriage Museum, the Egyptian Military Museum, and the Egyptian Police Museum), fortifications, walkways and a cafeteria.

    At the end of this interesting day you will be driven back to your Cairo hotel. (B)

    Early in the morning you will leave your resort for the 3 hour drive to St Catherine, where you will start the 3 or 4 hour climb to the summit of Mount Sinai, or Moses Mountain as it is also known (depending on the time of year and the fitness of your party). Once you have reached the summit you will glory in the wonderful sunrise and then sit down to enjoy your breakfast (breakfast boxes are supplied for you).  After 90 to 120 minutes you will start the descent and then, after 3 hours, will be welcomed into St Catherine’s Monastery. Dating back to the 6th century, this fully enclosed walled monastery holds the remains of what is believed to be the burning bush where Moses was spoken to before receiving the Ten Commandments. After this visit you will return, sometime in the afternoon, to your Sharm El Sheikh hotel. (B, D)
