Full description

Discover the “City of a Thousand Minarets” on a full-day tour of Cairo, with round-trip transfers by bus from Hurghada.

Relax in air-conditioned comfort on the long journey from Hurghada, admiring views of the Gulf of Suez. You will be accompanied by a transfer guide who will accompany you on the journey until you meet your Egyptologist guide.

Upon arrival, your private Egyptologist guide will meet you and take you to Giza Plateau to see the oldest of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Get breathtaking views of the Pyramids of Giza as you explore the mortuary temples of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinus.

Learn the story of how the temples were constructed and hear the stories behind their legends. Continue to the Great Sphinx, the giant statue of a reclining mythical beast with a lion’s body and the face of the Pharaoh Khafre. Go to the Valley Temple opposite, attributed to the Pharaoh Khafre, and marvel at the feat of ancient engineering.

Next, take a 30-minute break for lunch at a local restaurant. Then, drive into central Cairo to discover the artifacts at the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square with fast-track entry. You can also choose to add a Nile River cruise and a camel ride to your tour when booking.

Designed by French architect Marcel Dourgnon, the museum’s collections exceed 120,000 masterpieces from the pre-dynastic to the Pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods. Learn about the mummification art of Ancient Egypt before your return transfer to Hurghada.

After visiting all the attractions, enjoy a shopping stop before beginning the journey back to Hurghada.

Tour was really good, visited the piramides,the Sphinx and the Egyptian Museum and also did the mini cruise in Nile. Riding a camel and the cruise is strongly recommended, but its with an extra charge. We also visited a papyrus factory which was nice to see and a parfum factory which was nice also but a bit expensive so didnt buy anything from there. Lunch was really good. Our guide was really friendly and the rest of the staff as well. It was a long day but it was definitely worth it. Only negative was the mini bus, it was ok but it did not have comfortable seats and there was not enough space for my legs, although one of the guides offered me his place that there was a bit more space for my legs. anyway it was a nice experience

Trip was great, got to see alot of sights in the museum, the pyramids and camel riding was great. our tour guide was amazing and looked after us and also helped out with my gluten allergy at the buffet. Long trip from Hurghada would not recommend for those with kids/struggle with travel.

Aya was very knowledgeable and managed to give us background information to all the important places. She gave us choices on how to plan our journey and advised us on the best course of action. It is a long drive but absolutely worth it. The transfer from Sahl Hasheesh worked without a hitch. Be aware that the people do nothing for free even for pictures rhe demand money.
