Full description
Explore the wonders of ancient Egypt on this guided day tour. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby and you'll head off to visit the Pyramids, Sphynxes, and Egyptian Museum. Head first towards the Pyramids, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Admire the scenic views of the Pyramid of Cheops, Chephren and Mycinerus. Then, stop for a photo-op at the magnificent Great Sphynx. If you choose, you can visit the Great Pyramid at your own cost. Next, it’s time to taste some Egyptian food at a local restaurant. Once you’re finished, you’ll visit to the Egyptian Museum. This vast collection contains more than 250,000 artifacts in its exhibits which span over 5,000 years. If you choose, you can also then explore the room of King Tutankhamun at your own expense, stocked full of vivid jewelry and gold. These dazzling treasures were stored in the King’s tomb for 3,500 years before their discovery during the excavation in 1920.   Finally, you’ll be taken to visit the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar to enjoy the atmosphere of a local market in the old city. Stroll along this historic souk (market) and witness the variety of antiques, jewelry and souvenirs for sale, all made in the region. Finish your tour with a transfer back to your hotel once you’re finished marvelling at the sights of Egypt.

My wife & I booked a private tour through the "Get Your Guide" app. We were lucky enough to be assigned Ahmed Elsayed. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, well spoken and passionate about his job. If you book a tour, I recommend that you specifically request Ahmed Elsayed. Highlights of the Cairo tour included riding camels at the second viewing point at the pyramids where all three are in view. In addition, the museum was filled with extremely impressive artifacts. We actually ended up booking a second tour with Ahmed Elsayed two days later to Alexandria. On that tour we visited the Kim al-Shoqafa, Pompey's Pillar, Qaitbay Citadel, the Alexandria Library and had a lovely meal on the waterfront.

If there were 10 stars I would have given those, it was all perfect, and it was all thanks to our guide, Ahmed, a wonderful person, with a great passion for his work and for Egypt, you can only be fascinated by his stories. A person of heart who puts all of himself into his work, showed us Egypt from his perspective, and it is a marvel. Even the driver very good at juggling the busy streets of Cairo. Ahmed gave us very useful advice, seeing Cairo with him, the pyramids and everything else was an honor, as well as an immense pleasure. I absolutely recommend this tour, not to be missed and ask for Ahmed Pepsy
