Full description
The day begins with pickup in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Hurghada at 2am, then sets out on the 5-hour drive to Cairo. Arrive in Cairo at around 7am and enjoy a traditional Egyptian breakfast including foul and falafel to prepare you for the adventure ahead. After breakfast, head to the city’s most iconic landmark, the Pyramids of Giza, which are one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Spend some time exploring the Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos, then visit the Valley Temple where priests mummified the corpse of King Cephren. From here, take a close-up look at The Great Sphinx of Giza which guards the funeral complex with its lion’s body and the head of King Cephren. Continue the tour to the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, which houses the largest and most precious items from the world of Egyptian art. The museum exhibits a rare collection of over 250,000 genuine artifacts that date as far back as 5000 years, including an exclusive exhibit dedicated to Tutankhamen. Spend 2-hours at the museum learning about and admiring the collection of treasures, gold, jewelry and more that were buried in the tomb of Tutankhamen before being discovered in 1920. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite, enjoy a delicious lunch at a traditional restaurant. Once you’re feeling re-energized, take a trip to the popular Khan El Khalili Bazaar and soak up the vibrant atmosphere of locals going about their day. Wander through the market and peruse the numerous stalls, offering perfumes, fabrics, jewelry, spices, and more. After an unforgettable day in Cairo, sit back and relax on the return journey to Hurghada.

It was a great tour. The two drivers and the guide Ekramy were just great. We had a great day in Cairo. What is missing in the description of Get you Guide, however, is the indication that a negative corona test is required.

We booked the private trip with the hope of getting something special. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The drive from Hurghada to Cairo is very bumpy because the roads are bad. You are shaken for 6 hours, so sleeping on the way is impossible. Add to that the loud Arabic music of the driver. When we arrived in Cairo we were handed over to our guide Ekramy (or Ekrami). According to the specifications, the day should start with an oriental breakfast. Our guide simply omitted this and brought us straight to the pyramids. Since we had a long drive behind us (from 2 a.m.) we were accordingly tired and hungry. The guides have certain points of contact during the tour where the tourists are taken to sell them something. At the end it is always kindly pointed out that the employees are dependent on the tip. The tourists are just ripped off and everything is organized by a guide. Shameful
