Full description

Explore the best of Cairo’s monuments on a full-day coach tour from Hurghada. See the Giza Plateau and Egyptian Museum, home to more than 120,000 relics of Egyptian history. A tour representative will pick you up in the early morning from your hotel in Hurghada for a coach transfer to Cairo. Upon arrival in Cairo, head into the city center to wander the galleries of the remarkable Egyptian Museum, home to an astonishing collection of relics from the pre-dynastic era to the Pharaonic era and the Greco-Roman period. One highlight of the museum is the artifacts of the child King Tutankhamen, but make sure to take some time with the displays of other Pharaonic gods and goddess and visit the mummies room to learn about mummification in ancient Egypt. Then hop on board a Felucca, a type of sailing boat typical in Egypt, and cross over the Nile (optional, not included in tour price). 

After lunch, your Egyptologist guide will take you to the stunning Pyramids of Giza in the Giza Plateau. The oldest of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, the pyramids of Cheops, Khafre, and Mykerinos form the major highlight of the Giza Necropolis. Finally, drive back to Hurghada for a hotel drop-off. Alternatively, upgrade your trip to a private customizable tour. Make the most of your trip from Hurghada to Cairo with your very own minivan and personal driver and guide. Explore the city at your own pace, in comfort and style, with an experienced driver on hand to take you anywhere you want to go.

Excellent trip. Long bus ride from Soma Bay, would fly next time. Brilliant guides. Not enough time in Cairo museum but it would take at least a day to do it justice. Tut's mask is the point though. Absolutely awe inspiring. Absolutely NO photographs of it allowed although you can get a picture from outside the separate mask exhibition but not very defined. A Nile boat trip is offered at extra cost. 200 LE, about £8. Do it. Well worth it. Giza pyramids and Sphinx is awesome. Take a camel ride, 200 LE extra. Don't take any hassle from the traders, go with the official crew. Same journey, cheaper than the unlicensed traders. This trip takes a full 24 hours in reality but totally worth it.

Great Trip too much sales time wasted in giza with shopping and no shopping in Cairo. Driver snoring all the way taking space for travellers in back seat and no English spoken by drivers hardly. They need to organise better drivers and more communication of English. Apart from that a great trip. Cruise on nail not needed too much money for what you gat. Please send feedback.
