See the sights of Cairo in one day on a 12-hour tour from El Gouna, including round-trip flights from Hurghada. Visit the Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx in the Giza Plateau, marvel at the monuments of the Salah El Din Citadel, and much more.
What to Expect
Spend less time traveling and more time exploring on a full-day tour of Cairo, with round-trip flights from Hurghada Airport.
Following a pick-up from your hotel in El Gouna, transfer to Hurghada Airport for your flight to Cairo. A driver will meet you on arrival and take you to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities (Egyptian Museum) on Tahrir Square. Discover the huge collection of Egyptian artifacts, including jewelry, statues, sarcophagi, and mummies. See the treasures of Pharaonic Egypt and explore the history of a fascinating civilization. For an additional fee you can enter the Mummy Room and come face-to-face with the mummies of ancient Egyptian royals.
Then, explore the beautifully preserved Salah El Din Citadel in the heart of Islamic Cairo. Created by one of the greatest Arabic rulers, known in Europe as “Saladin,” the impressive fortress was built to protect the city from European crusaders. Go to the Mohamed Ali Mosque (Alabaster Mosque) within the fortress walls to look at the Ottoman-inspired architecture and alabaster courtyard, and enjoy panoramic views of Cairo from the hill.
Stop for lunch in a local restaurant before driving to the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx in the Giza Plateau. Explore one of the 7 Wonders of the World, built more than 4.500 years ago as an everlasting monument to the pharaohs Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos. Share a smile with the mysterious Sphinx, take an optional ride on a camel, enter a pyramid, or visit the Solar Boat Museum to see an extraordinary feat of engineering that the Pharaoh Cheops, builder of the Great Pyramid, wanted to sail through the underworld in.
Enjoy some free time at leisure in the afternoon to explore central Cairo on your own. Shop for souvenirs at the Khan el Khalili Bazaar, or sail on the River Nile by traditional felucca (additional fee).
Transfer back to the airport for your return flight to the Red Sea and your hotel drop off in El Gouna.
