Full description

Discover Cairo in a unique manner: from the skies on a flight from Hurghada and on the ground to see the iconic pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum with an Egyptologist as a guide.

Take a step back in time throughout your tour and travel comfortably between locations in an air-conditioned van.

Travel from Hurghada to Cairo by plane, where your exciting day tour truly begins. After the pickup at your hotel in Hurghada, sit back and relax in an air-conditioned vehicle as you drive to the airport to catch a domestic flight to Cairo.

Upon arrival in Cairo, meet your Egyptologist guide who will accompany you throughout your tour.  Head to Giza, where you visit the famous and impressive pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos, as well as the Sphinx. After a break for a delicious lunch, continue to the Egyptian Museum. Here, admire the treasures of the young pharaoh Tutankhamun, as well as other artifacts.

In the afternoon, change the pace of your tour by shopping at the Khan el-Khalili market. Marvel at the colorful, delicate, and ornate stalls of local goods like platters, lamps, and cups surrounding you. At the end of the tour in Cairo, head over to the airport to catch your return flight to Hurghada. Once there, be transferred back to your hotel.

I think that the organization requires better anticipation. The afternoon before the day of the activity, we are told that the flight is full and therefore the activity must be postponed. Fortunately we were still in Egypt for a few days and therefore possible to move. Then, it is a pity that we are warned at the last moment about the schedules, difficult to organize in advance. Fortunately, the pyramids are really worth it. Very impressive. Thanks to Ibrahim our guide for the day. Very nice and above all very knowledgeable on the subject of the pyramids.

Guide was very knowledgeable and super friendly. Museum was great queueing not too long to see king Tutankhamun mask. Lots of add ons so you need more cash than you think.Being food and snacks as not many opportunities to eat.Restaurant choice was the poorest part of the experience billed as good quality food it certainly wasn't and it was not clean. stopped off at Pyramids and Sphinx best part of the trip.A bigt rushed but we had lost an hour at the airport (no fault of the tour- police)so this did gave a knock in effect.Overall well worth doing and a real highlight of our time here in Egypt.

Our guide, Hany Mahmoud, was very informative and helpful. He was good company and fun. The driver, Amir, also for keeping us safe on those crazy roads. Perhaps the day could start later and just take in the Pyramids, the museum and the light show. My wife was hoping to see the markets of Cairo but happy because of the way the day ended with the spectacular light show of the Pyramids and Sphinx. Overall, a magical experience and felt totally safe with Hany as our exceptional guide.
