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.

Upon arrival in Cairo, meet your Egyptologist tour guide and go first to the world-famous Giza Plateau.

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.

our local guide (Isra) was fantastic. we feel very lucky to have net Isra who's knowledge of ancient Egypt is at the Museum standard. which is not surprising how she has a lengthy Cairo Museum employment studying her fav subject. she showed us things at the Pyramids never mentioned in any TV documentary. it really was a 5 star service. We where even collected by car from the Hilton hotel, because when we got off the bus from Hurghada, we got a bit lost. Isra and her driver told us to stay at the Hilton and they came straight there and collected us. Cairo is a mad place to drive and tbh I couldn't do it, but we felt very safe with our very experienced driver who also looked after our valuables when we left the vehicle. He also knew a great place for lunch. Isra and the driver work brilliantly together and we can not thank them enough for looking after us all day, and it really was a full, packed day. 5 star guide, driver, excursions. Highly recommend. Thank You Isra and Driver.

One of my best decisions was to take this trip to explore the city within one day. In spite of a very tiring bus tour (which was the only low point) I met the most amazing guide ever who I could explore Cairo with, and enjoy the sunshine and the rainy hours (unfortunately this is my usual luck) at the same time. Thanks Maged for this amazing experience!

The guide Ahmed Amin was very friendly and was able to tell something about everything and answer our questions. He tried to fulfill every wish. Very good German. Gladly again. For that 5 stars. The bus tour from Hurghada to Cairo was a bit chaotic as we were taken to a bus stop, although we assumed we would go straight to Cairo. At the bus stop we were a bit helpless, also because of a lack of language skills. The bus wasn't really luxurious. WLAN did not work, the interior is getting old, not to mention the sanitary facilities. Despite everything, we got there and back well and the staff was friendly and the packed lunches were fine. Fortunately, instead of 18 hours, it was 22 hours from the start (times for bus tickets), which should be mentioned, luckily for us.
