Experience the breathtaking city of Cairo and be enthralled by the magic of Egypt and its fascinating history. See the last remaining Wonder of the World and be enchanted by the mysterious Sphinx.
What to Expect
Let yourself be drawn into the world of the pharaohs, and experience the capital of Egypt. After being picked up from your hotel, you will be brought to Hurghada Airport, to fly to Cairo. On arrival in Cairo, your guide will be waiting for you, who will accompany you the whole day and offer you fascinating glimpses into the Arab world.
In the Egyptian Museum you will be able to see, and be enchanted by, the grave goods of Tutankhamen. Marvel at the breathtaking collection of artifacts, sarcophagi, mummies from millennia gone by, and much more. See pieces of the true history of the so-called "Land of the Gods." If you wish, and for an extra fee, you can enter the hall of royal mummies, where the bodies of several famous Ancient Egyptian Kings and Pharaohs are kept – a fascinating insight into the past!
After lunch, you will travel on to Giza, to see the most famous pyramids in all Egypt. Truly legendary buildings, they were built over 4,500 years ago, and have stood nearly unchanged to today. They were designed as tombs for eternity, and are sure to impress.
After this there awaits another highlight: the mysterious Sphinx. Once again, you will be seeing deep into Egyptian history. If you wish, you can then take a camel ride, or enter the pyramids. Or perhaps you would like to see the legendary Solar Boat – a masterpiece of ancient boatbuilding.
In the late afternoon, you will have the opportunity to visit the city of Cairo. The city that never sleeps, as it is called, has much to offer, from its bazaars, with their oriental flair, to the glorious river Nile, where you can take a trip in one of the boats.
In the evening you will fly back to Hurghada, and return to your hotel.
