Day 2Giza Great Pyramids, Sphinx and Saqqara

Commence your 5-day solo budget adventure across Egypt, exploring Cairo, Alexandria, and Luxor with the initiation led by your Egypt Best Vacations tour guide. The journey kicks off as you are picked up from your hotel for a captivating tour of the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, and Saqqara.

Today’s exploration centers around the Giza Plateau, featuring the Great Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure alongside the iconic Sphinx. Immerse yourself in the only ancient wonder that still stands – Khufu’s pyramid. Gain insights into the pyramid’s history, construction methods, and their historical significance.

Venture to Saqqara to marvel at the Step Pyramid of King Djoser, the earliest pyramid in history. Saqqara, a vital necropolis, served as the burial ground for Memphis, the inaugural capital of United Egypt in 3200 BCE.

Conclude your day by transferring to Giza Railway, where you will board a sleeper train destined for Luxor. This is a thrilling journey, unlocking the historical treasures of Egypt on a budget-friendly solo tour.

Day 3Luxor highlights

Unveil Luxor treasures on this third day of your Egyptian odyssey. Prepare to stand face-to-face with pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings, where majestic tombs whisper tales of power and eternity. Explore the unique Hatshepsut Temple, a honeycomb carved into the cliffs, and stand in awe before the silent sentinels, the Colossi of Memnon.

Midday calls, and a local restaurant beckons with the fragrant bounty of Egyptian cuisine. Fuel your spirit for the afternoon’s adventures, for Karnak Temple awaits, its colossal columns reaching for the sky like a petrified forest of gods. Within its labyrinthine halls, discover the vibrant stories etched in stone, testaments to Amun, Mut, and Khonsu, the divine triad who once held sway over these lands.

Then, as the sun begins its descent, immerse yourself in the majesty of Luxor Temple. Feel the echo of ancient ceremonies that resonated through these halls, and imagine the pharaohs gliding through time within its embrace.

As twilight paints the Nile, your sleeper train awaits, ready to carry you back to Cairo, lulled by the rhythmic clatter of wheels and the gentle whisper of the river. Dreams of pharaohs and gods dance in your eyes, and tomorrow promises new adventures in the bustling heart of Egypt.

Day 4Alexandria highlights

Embark on a scenic journey from Giza Railway to the enchanting City of Alexandria, marking another delightful day in your 5-day Egypt solo budget tour. Upon arrival, you will visit the famous Roman Catacombs of Kom El-Shoqafa. The catacombs are huge Egyptian tombs and royal cemeteries with Ptolemaic and Roman influences. The catacombs of Kom El-Shoqafa are one the largest Roman burial sites not just in Alexandria but in Egypt. These catacombs started as a private tomb for a wealthy family, then became a public cemetery. The catacombs house more than 300 tombs.

From the catacombs to the nearby Pompey’s Pillar. Many of the ancient historians did not tell us more details about the “Pompey’s Pillar” but about the buildings that stood nearby and have disappeared now. The hill on which the pillar is erected was covered with temples and houses a long time before the Roman era. It was the place of the Citadel of Rhakotis. A temple was dedicated to Osiris-Serapis was built on the mountain.

From the Pompey’s Pillar to the magnificent Citadel of Qaitbay. The Citadel of Qaitbay in Alexandria is one of the most important fortifications in Egypt. It was constructed by Sultan Al-Ashraf Qaitbay to defend Egypt against the Ottomans/Turks.

You will end your tour in Alexandria by visiting the Library of Alexandria from the outside. Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant, then travel back to Cairo for the final night of your 5-day Egypt solo budget tour.

Day 5End of your 5-day Egypt solo budget tour

From the museum to the Citadel of the Sunni Muslim leader Saladin, which was built in 1172 to protect Cairo against the Crusaders. The White Mosque of Mohammed Ali Pasha is a prominent feature of the Citadel. You will finish your tour today at the historical bazaar of Khan el Khalili, the largest bazaar in the Middle East.
