Egypt's ancient pyramids, the Great Sphinx of Giza, the Egyptian Museum full of mummy treasure and the Khan el Khalili bazaar – experience nonstop wonder on this 1-day, private guided tour from Cairo.
What to Expect
See the famous Pyramids of Giza, Sphinx, Egyptian Museum, and Khan el Khalili bazaar on this one day tour from Egypt's capital.
Your private guide will begin the tour by introducing each of the three Pyramids of Giza: Cheops, Khafre and Menakaure. You will then have free time to explore these wonders of the ancient world, or even enter one of the pyramids (additional cost).
Also on the Giza Plateau, stand at the feet of the Great Sphinx of Giza, the oldest monumental statue in the world. While in Giza you can choose to visit the Solar Boat Museum, home to the remarkably well-preserved funerary boat of the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu.
Cairo's Egyptian Museum houses 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, but 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 own pace.
The last stop of the tour is the Khan el Khalili bazaar. Enjoy strolling through the maze of streets and shopping for bargains in this bustling market. During the day you will also have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how ancient scrolls were made.
