Travel back in time to experience the heritage of Ancient Egypt on a full-day tour to Cairo and Giza, with transfers by air-conditioned vehicles from the Red Sea.

What to expect?

  • Experience Cairo’s very best with a private, full-day tour you discover ancient sites, artifacts, and a bustling bazaar. Ride a camel through the sand beside the soaring pyramids at Giza and then descend to the funerary complex at the Valley Temple. Go toe-to-toe with the enigmatic Sphinx and pause for lunch before visiting the Egyptian Museum. Explore the stunning collection of artifacts, mummies and royal treasures with your guide and then continue to Khan el Khalili bazaar to browse the vibrant displays of fabrics, handicrafts, and antiques.

  • 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, admiring views of the Gulf of Suez.

  • Upon arrival, your private Egyptologist guide will take you to Giza Plateau to see the oldest of the Seven 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 listen to 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.

  • After lunch, drive to central Cairo to explore the artifacts of the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square. 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 you return with the transfer back to Hurghada.
