Full description

Discover Cairo in a unique manner: from the skies on a flight from Hurghada and on the ground to see the iconic pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum with an Egyptologist as a guide.

Take a step back in time throughout your tour and travel comfortably between locations in an air-conditioned van.

Travel from Hurghada to Cairo by plane, where your exciting day tour truly begins. After the pickup at your hotel in Hurghada, sit back and relax in an air-conditioned vehicle as you drive to the airport to catch a domestic flight to Cairo.

Upon arrival in Cairo, meet your Egyptologist guide who will accompany you throughout your tour.  Head to Giza, where you visit the famous and impressive pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos, as well as the Sphinx. After a break for a delicious lunch, then board a typical Felucca boat to cross the Nile to the City (optional). Continue to the Egyptian Museum. Here, admire the treasures of the young pharaoh Tutankhamun, as well as other artifacts.

In the afternoon, change the pace of your tour by shopping at the Khan el-Khalili market. Marvel at the colorful, delicate, and ornate stalls of local goods like platters, lamps, and cups surrounding you. At the end of the tour in Cairo, head over to the airport to catch your return flight to Hurghada. Once there, be transferred back to your hotel.

Overall a worthwhile trip if you want to see the pyramids. Since the pyramids are the tourist attraction par excellence, it is accordingly touristy here. 5 minutes to take pictures and on to the next spot. Camel rides cost extra, but there's no getting around that with kids. Admission to the pyramid was calculated here on GYG at €25 pp, on site it costs €3(!)€. The stops at the papyrus and perfume factory are annoying. They only serve to provision the guide. The Nile trip, which was not announced, costs extra, but it is an experience. The museum was pulled through in 1 hour, there is probably no other way, we photographed the Sphinx from afar. The evening market was amazing and the most relaxing part of the tour. Bus transfers, flight etc everything went smoothly. In summary: Of course you can't expect any cultural highlights on a day with "once everything", but you've been there live once.

The sights shown and explanations by the guide Dr. Mohamed Abdel Kader were excellent and very easy to understand. We learned a lot about Egypt and its history from him. The transfer by plane was suboptimal, on the return flight endless waiting time, since it was only at 11 p.m., very bad timing. Finding the right terminal and gate was also very difficult for the group.
