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.

Worth it. What was good: -The travel guide was very friendly and took good care of everyone -Important information was passed on - pyramids were awesome What was not so good: -we couldn't see the pyramids from the inside -spent too much time in the perfumery -too given little time for the museum (very short guided tour + 30 minutes on your own) -too many breaks on the outward journey that took too long. Took us over 9 hours there and only 7 hours back.

The air conditioned bus was great and the guide was good but we were rushed at many of the most historical parts including the pyramids and the sphinx. Instead spending more time in a papyrus shop and perfumery which none of us were interested in. In said shops they tried to sell to us which was overall really tiring after being sold to by everyone everywhere. Overall though, it was well organised and I throughly enjoyed what time I did spend in the museum, the pyramids and the sphinx. Please be sure to take at least £40-£60 extra as they will entice you with a boat trip on the Nile and camel rides which are nice but I did not account for. Also note you do not have to pay for this at all but you will feel like you are missing out.

It was a great experience to see the buildings and items that I only know from movies and photos. The activities were successively: national museum, nile cruise (note this is not included), lunch in a restaurant, pyramids, camel ride (note this is also not included), visit sphinx, perfumery and papyrus factory. In addition, we had a very affected and involved guide.
