Enjoy a stress-free introduction to the ancient world on this day trip from Hurghada. Make the most of the day with an early flight and get ready to meet your local guide in Cairo where the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx statue, and Cairo Museum are all on the cards. Esi, one of our local guides, says, ‘You’ll learn so much about the Egyptians on this tour, from beliefs about the afterlife at the Pyramids to their astrological knowledge. The 'how' is still a mystery that we can only admire and enjoy.’
From Cairo airport, you'll kickstart the tour at the Giza Necropolis. Home to the top trio of pyramids, this unforgettable site brings Egypt out of your textbooks and onto your camera rolls. Stand up close to the Great Pyramid, the largest of the three, and soak up the views against a desert backdrop. You can choose to step inside its mysterious tunnels and chambers. Listen to your guide talk about the pharaoh as you marvel at the famous statue, the Great Sphinx – ‘with the body of a lion and face of a pharaoh, it’s a symbol of great strength and wisdom,’ adds local guide Esi.
You’re in for a treat with the next stop at the Cairo Museum. With over 100 exhibition galleries inside, it’s home to the world’s biggest collection of Egyptian artefacts. Wander past statues, artefacts, and relics that’ll give you the inside scoop into the daily life and religious practices of past civilizations from thousands of years ago. The museum is also home to the wow-factor masterpiece – the golden mask of Tutankhamun. It’s a showstopping way to end the day.
