Full description
Day 1:
Get picked up from your hotel in the early morning and transfer to Hurghada Airport for your flight to Cairo. Reach Cairo by 7 AM, where your tour guide will be waiting for you outside of the terminal. Begin your full-day tour with a visit to the Great Pyramids of Giza, Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos. Then, explore the Valley Temple, the location where priests mummified the body of King Chephren. Get a close-up look at the famous Sphinx, the legendary guardian with the head of a king and the body of a lion.

Next, continue to Sakkara, located only 16 miles southwest from Cairo. Visit the Step Pyramid, built for King Zoser and an important aspect of the pyramids’ evolution. Then, head over to Memphis City, the ancient capital of Egypt and home to the colossal statue of Ramses II and the great Alabaster Sphinx. This city dates back to 3100 BC. After this, stop for lunch in a local restaurant based on full meal for each person but beverages is not included. End the first day with a transfer to your hotel for check-in and an overnight stay in Cairo.

Day 2:
Check out of the hotel at 8 AM and collect your luggage, to be stored in the car. Begin the day with a visit to the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, displaying the world’s largest collection of precious Egyptian art. Marvel at the rare collection of over 250,000 genuine artifacts that date back as far as 5,000 years.

Continue to the Citadel, where you will visit the Alabaster Mosque of Mohamed Ali Pasha before proceeding to Khan El Khalili Bazaar. The numerous shops in this district are known for trading fine brass war, copper, perfumes, leather, silver, gold, and much more. After this, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (beverages are not included). At the end of day 2, transfer back to Cairo Airport for your return flight to Hurghada.
