Full description
Explore the wonders of ancient Egypt on this guided day tour. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby and you'll head off to visit the Pyramids, Sphynxes, and Egyptian Museum. Head first towards the Pyramids, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Admire the scenic views of the Pyramid of Cheops, Chephren and Mycinerus. Then, stop for a photo-op at the magnificent Great Sphynx. If you choose, you can visit the Great Pyramid at your own cost. Next, it’s time to taste some Egyptian food at a local restaurant. Once you’re finished, you’ll visit to the Egyptian Museum. This vast collection contains more than 250,000 artifacts in its exhibits which span over 5,000 years. If you choose, you can also then explore the room of King Tutankhamun at your own expense, stocked full of vivid jewelry and gold. These dazzling treasures were stored in the King’s tomb for 3,500 years before their discovery during the excavation in 1920.   Finally, you’ll be taken to visit the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar to enjoy the atmosphere of a local market in the old city. Stroll along this historic souk (market) and witness the variety of antiques, jewelry and souvenirs for sale, all made in the region. Finish your tour with a transfer back to your hotel once you’re finished marvelling at the sights of Egypt.

A super professional day trip with the best guide in Egypt. Amin was already on time at our hotel and surprised us with "real insider tips". Amin responded to us individually and we had a really great and relaxed (except for the traffic in Cairo) day. We really enjoyed being accompanied by such an experienced and humanly great tour guide.

It was an incredible experience, since they picked us up at the Hotel we felt that it would be a wonderful day and it was. Our super attentive, helpful guide with great energy, his knowledge of everything we visited were outstanding. A tour that they cannot stop doing when they come to Egypt, 1000% highly recommended. Punctuality, transportation, explanation of every detail and a lot of charisma from our Guide.

This tour was excellent. It was led by Esraa Ahmed (and driver Essam). Esraa took the time to explain everything that we were seeing at the pyramids, Sphinx and Cairo Museum. Esraa was also very flexible allowing the group to decide whether we wanted to go to the Cairo Museum or the Civilization Museum and she dropped me off early back at my hotel because I didnt want to go to the bazaar. Overall, Esraa was very friendly and looked out for all of us on the tour.
