Cairo Sightseeing

We begin our touring today with some sights of ancient Egypt – some of which date back to 1000+ years prior to Abraham. Visit the impressive 3 Pyramids of Kings Cheops, Chephren, and Menkaure which are guarded by the rock-cut statue (The Sphinx) a large half-human, half-lion statue. The Great Pyramid of King Cheops is the only standing wonder from the ancient world, although it is 2,000 years older than any other wonder on the list. Visit to the Hanging Church – the most famous Coptic church in Cairo. The Hanging Church was named so as it was built by the Nile River over the Roman Gate of Babylon. During a walking tour, our guide will point out that this section of the old city was definitely the route taken by Abraham, Joseph, Moses and the family of Jesus – an inspiring thought.

Breakfast and then a day tour to the ancient seaport of Alexandria where we will see the Greco-Roman culture in Egypt.
