Full description

Discover the wonders of Cairo on this full-day tour from Hurghada. Although the bus journey is shared, choose between a private or shared small-group tour of the sights once in Egypt's capital city. Get picked up from your hotel in Hurghada at around 2 AM and transfer in an air-conditioned van to the bus station. Board your well-facilitated, air-conditioned Elite Shared Bus and begin your journey to Cairo. Relax and take a nap on the way in your recliner seat. The bus has a toilet, free Wi-Fi, USB charging points, and a touch screen at every seat for entertainment purposes. Refreshments like tea, coffee, juice, sandwiches, and mineral water will also be provided during the journey. Upon arrival in Cairo, meet your Egyptologist tour guide and go first to the world-famous Giza Plateau. Admire the beauty of the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, along with the other two pyramids. Explore the mysterious Great Sphinx, the old pharaoh’s father of terror, and the Valley Temple before lunch at one of the best restaurants. After a delicious lunch, visit the renowned Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, commonly referred to as the Egyptian Museum. Constructed in a neo-classical style, this beautiful museum houses about 120,000 artifacts and works of Egyptian art.

At the end of the tour, visit the Khan El-Khalili Bazaar and soak up the atmosphere of the old city. Take a walk through this market and marvel at the variety of souvenirs, antiques, and jewelry for sale.

Excellent! We couldn't have picked a better tour for Cairo. Everything went very well and uncomplicated. Everyone was very friendly and we were able to visit everything that was important to us in Cairo with the best background information. Lunch was really tasty and it was a nice experience. Gladly again!

Were picked up on time by a car from the hotel. Then took the big Go bus (pleasant ride) to Cairo. Not in a luxury minibus for 6-8 people). There we were driven by a competent guide to the sights. It was very good... The guide can't do anything about dirty Cairo and the noise on the street. Unfortunately, the return trip was very long. 2 breaks resulted in a delay of 90 minutes. So we were only at the hotel at 0.35 a.m.... after 23 hours

The best tour you can get! Although the journey to Cairo from Hurghada was long, it was definitely worth it! We had an amazing time in Cairo! We loved exploring the Giza Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum, as well as sailing the Nile River. All of this could not be possible without our tour guide Islam! He told us so many interesting facts about the Pyramids, and the history of Egypt and its people. And he knew English perfectly, so it was very easy to communicate with him. Highly recommend this tour!
