Fly from Safaga to discover the history and culture of Ancient Egypt in Cairo on this full-day tour. Enjoy a day in the capital city, where you can explore the sights including the Giza Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum, and Salah El Din Citadel.
What to Expect
A representative will pick you up from your ship in Safaga and transfer you to Hurghada International Airport, from where you catch the flight to Cairo. Your driver will wait for you at Cairo International Airport and take you directly to your first visit – the Egyptian Museum which contains a huge collection of artifacts, jewelry, statues, sarcophagi, mummies, and many more items. Discover the treasures of Pharaonic Egypt and plunge into the history of a fascinating civilization. For an extra payment you can enter the Mummy Room and find yourself face to face with the mummies of famous ancient Egyptian Royals.

Afterwards you see the well-preserved Salah El Din Citadel, the heart of Islamic Cairo. The Citadel was created by one of the greatest Arabic rulers, known in Europe as Saladin, a successful conqueror and clever statesman who built this large and impressive fortress to protect the city from the European crusaders. Inside the fortification’s walls you find the Mohamed Ali Mosque, also known as the Alabaster Mosque. This huge mosque, looking down on the city from its hill, is a beautiful piece of Ottoman-inspired architecture with a wonderful courtyard, covered with alabaster.

Enjoy a walk through the Sultan Hassan Mosque with its extravagant interior, the architectural innovations, and the fantastic size, regarding the time of its construction in the Middle Ages. This mosque was not only created for prayer, but also as a madrassa (an educational institution for religious studies).

After this you enjoy lunch in a nice local restaurant before visiting the giant Pyramids and the Great Sphinx in Giza. Be impressed by this last surviving site of the Seven Wonders of the World, built more than 4,500 years ago as everlasting monumental graves for the Pharaohs Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos. See the mystical Sphinx, a mixture of a Pharaoh’s head and a lion’s body. If you like, you can optionally ride on a camel, enter a pyramid, or visit the Solar Boat Museum.

In the late afternoon you have some time at your own disposal in central Cairo. You can go shopping in the famous Khan el-Khalili Bazaar to buy some souvenirs and try a typical element of Arabic culture – bargaining. Or join a Felucca trip and sail over the River Nile. In the evening you travel back to Safaga.
