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.

The transfer went smoothly. We were picked up on time in Hurghada. In Cairo, our guide for the entire tour, Ashraf Kandiel, gave us a friendly welcome and we started our adventure. First we went to Saqqara & Memphis. Since we were out so early, we were the first visitors to the excavations and were able to comfortably see all the sights. After lunch we went to the pyramids in Giza. Definitely an experience. Day two was also filled with highlights - the Egyptian Museum, the Citadel and the Mohammed Ali Mosque and the Bazaar. Our guide explained and told us the history of Egypt in an exciting way during the two days. It was a successful excursion into the past and the Cairo of the present. Our guide was great & very accommodating and the time just flew by. Our two drivers bravely fought their way through the traffic and patiently picked us up everywhere. The trip is highly recommended!

Amazing experience with Zainab and Wahid, everything was really perfect from start to finish. I hope you come across these two people of unspeakable kindness who will make you discover the most beautiful things in Cairo, Memphis and Sakarra. Once again, a big thank you to them for this unforgettable experience!

Hat alles prima geklappt und ich habe auch genügend Zeit gehabt zum erkunden. Einmal wurde ich bei einer Verkaufsveranstaltung abgesetzt (*Beduinen), bei deren mich der Eigentümer gleich wieder weggeschickt hat, weil ich nichts kaufen wollte. Das Hotel ist nahe den Pyramiden und sehr gemütlich, leider nur mit Toiletten auf dem Gang. Die Mittagessen sind in einem Touristenrestaurant, dafür kann man so viel essen wie man will.
