Full description

Discover Cairo in a unique manner: from the skies on a flight from Hurghada and on the ground to see the iconic pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum with an Egyptologist as a guide.

Take a step back in time throughout your tour and travel comfortably between locations in an air-conditioned van.

Travel from Hurghada to Cairo by plane, where your exciting day tour truly begins. After the pickup at your hotel in Hurghada, sit back and relax in an air-conditioned vehicle as you drive to the airport to catch a domestic flight to Cairo.

Upon arrival in Cairo, meet your Egyptologist guide who will accompany you throughout your tour.  Head to Giza, where you visit the famous and impressive pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos, as well as the Sphinx. After a break for a delicious lunch, continue to the Egyptian Museum. Here, admire the treasures of the young pharaoh Tutankhamun, as well as other artifacts.

In the afternoon, change the pace of your tour by shopping at the Khan el-Khalili market. Marvel at the colorful, delicate, and ornate stalls of local goods like platters, lamps, and cups surrounding you. At the end of the tour in Cairo, head over to the airport to catch your return flight to Hurghada. Once there, be transferred back to your hotel.

Our guide, Hany Mahmoud, was very informative and helpful. He was good company and fun. The driver, Amir, also for keeping us safe on those crazy roads. Perhaps the day could start later and just take in the Pyramids, the museum and the light show. My wife was hoping to see the markets of Cairo but happy because of the way the day ended with the spectacular light show of the Pyramids and Sphinx. Overall, a magical experience and felt totally safe with Hany as our exceptional guide.

Very nice tour! Sufficient time to visit all tour highlights including good support from the guide on site. Sufficient cool and free drinks in the air-conditioned bus. Visit to the papyrus workshop and perfumery unnecessary. Long waiting time at the airport in Cairo. Pick-up time at the hotel was only communicated to the organizer after repeated inquiries. Overall, however, highly recommended.

It was a good trip. But unfortunately you have to reassure yourself in advance that everything works. The pyramids are very exciting. We were only very briefly at the Sphinx. Unfortunately, de Bazar was not enough due to time constraints. The undescribed perfume shop and papyrus shop weren't very great. Beware of the rip-off when riding a camel! 350 LE per hour not minutes!
