Fill in the spare time of your transit in Cairo with a private tour to the pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian museum, and Khan el Khalili Bazaar, depending on the length of your layover. With precious waste start immediately and see what Cairo has to offer.
What to Expect
Enjoy a warm welcome in Egypt with round-the-clock pick-up's according to your flight arrival time. A tour representative and guide will meet and assist you at Cairo International Airport where you will be escorted by an air-conditioned deluxe vehicle to the Pyramids of Giza area to visit the great pyramid known as the pyramid of Cheops or Khufu.
Your private tour begins with a fascinating introduction to each of the three Giza pyramids: Cheops, Khafre, and Menakaure. You will have free time to enter one of the pyramids (at an additional cost), though your guide is not permitted to enter with you.
Proceed with a short drive to the city side of the plateau and find yourself standing at the foot of the Sphinx, the enigmatic symbol of Egypt. Also in Giza you may visit the Solar Boat Museum (an optional venture), home to the remarkably well preserved funerary boat of Khufu.
Continue with your private tour to the famous Egyptian Museum which houses 165,000 Egyptian artifacts. The priceless treasures of King Tutankhamun are the highlight. His six gilded coffins dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the star attraction. Your guide will introduce you to the museum’s most important pieces before you have free time to explore at your leisure.
Continuing to Khan el Khalili bazaar, enjoy free time to stroll through the maze of streets and bargain for a souvenir of your trip to Egypt. During the day you will also have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how the famous artwork is made.
After finishing the tour you will be transferred to Cairo Airport at least 2 hours before your international flight time.
