All about the trip
Get picked up from your hotel at 4:30 by an air-conditioned van and transferred to Sharm El Sheikh Airport to fly to Cairo. The flight takes approximately 50 minutes.
Upon your arrival at Cairo airport, you will meet with your private English speaking guide who will accompany you for the entire duration of your trip.
Start the tour by visiting the world-famous Egyptian Museum. The museum of two floors houses approximately 120 000 masterpieces from different eras and periods of Egyptian history. The most popular exhibitions relate to the Pharaonic Kings and Queens, such as the child king Tutankhamen and the room of mummies. This is your chance to learn more about mummification art in ancient Egypt.
After your visit to the Egyptian Museum, you will have the chance to hop on a felucca (small motorboat). Relax as you float down the Nile and take in the panoramic views of the city in the summer breeze.
Next, you will have a break to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch in a restaurant with wonderful views of the ancient river. Please keep in mind that drinks are not included.
Once refreshed, we will cross the Nile and travel to Giza pyramids constructed around 2560 BC. Known as one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world, this place should be on everybody's bucket list. Expert Egyptologists are here to answer your questions about how and why they were built. You can look forward to exploring the interior in one of the three ancient pyramids.
After that, we will walk down to the edge of the plateau to King Khafre Valley where you can take your first glimpse of the Great Sphinx and its temple. The Great Sphinx of Giza is a mythological creature having a human head and a lion's body. Look up at the impressive statue that is 20 m high and 73 m long.
Before your return, spend an hour shopping traditional Egyptian souvenirs and gifts produced by local craftspeople. We will spend some time at the Papyrus Institute to learn how this famous paper is made and in a perfume shop to get enchanted by Arabic scents.
At the end of the day, our guide will drop you off at the airport in Cairo to catch your flight back to Sharm El Sheikh. Upon your arrival at the airport, our rep will meet you and transfer you back to your hotel.What Wikipedia says about Cairo
