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.

It was a tiring but interesting experience. We were picked up at the hotel on time and only German was spoken on this bus. Arrived in Cairo we got to know our guide: Mohammad "Attack". He immediately guided us to the Egyptian Museum. Once inside, he then explained to us that the pyramids are not tombs, but rather large batteries to give energy to the world. OK!?! After a short tour, we were allowed to move around on our own and met outside after half an hour. The Nile trip was quite pleasant and the visit to the papyrus factory was kept fairly short. The food was very good and we didn't have to rush. At the pyramids we had plenty of time to take our own photos and the Sphinx was also impressive. We were asked if we still want to see the perfumery or stay a little longer at the Sphinx. The decision was unanimous. After 22 hours we were back in our hotel

was a great experience overall to Pyramids, the only downside is the timings, as they made me wait 45min in the hotel lobby. pick up time was 00:40am, and they came at 01:25am to pick me up, which was annoying give the late night wake up. But otherwise, it was a great journey to Cairo and back. The bus was outdated compared to other travel agencies who looked more modern and there was no wifi in the bus. Other travel agencies had this included in the bus.
