Full description

Discover the “City of a Thousand Minarets” on a full-day tour of Cairo, with round-trip transfers by bus from Hurghada.

Relax in air-conditioned comfort on the long journey from Hurghada, admiring views of the Gulf of Suez. You will be accompanied by a transfer guide who will accompany you on the journey until you meet your Egyptologist guide.

Upon arrival, your private Egyptologist guide will meet you and take you to Giza Plateau to see the oldest of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Get breathtaking views of the Pyramids of Giza as you explore the mortuary temples of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinus.

Learn the story of how the temples were constructed and hear the stories behind their legends. Continue to the Great Sphinx, the giant statue of a reclining mythical beast with a lion’s body and the face of the Pharaoh Khafre. Go to the Valley Temple opposite, attributed to the Pharaoh Khafre, and marvel at the feat of ancient engineering.

Next, take a 30-minute break for lunch at a local restaurant. Then, drive into central Cairo to discover the artifacts at the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square with fast-track entry. You can also choose to add a Nile River cruise and a camel ride to your tour when booking.

Designed by French architect Marcel Dourgnon, the museum’s collections exceed 120,000 masterpieces from the pre-dynastic to the Pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods. Learn about the mummification art of Ancient Egypt before your return transfer to Hurghada.

After visiting all the attractions, enjoy a shopping stop before beginning the journey back to Hurghada.

Aya was very knowledgeable and managed to give us background information to all the important places. She gave us choices on how to plan our journey and advised us on the best course of action. It is a long drive but absolutely worth it. The transfer from Sahl Hasheesh worked without a hitch. Be aware that the people do nothing for free even for pictures rhe demand money.

Our trip was amazing from start to finish with the best guide Ahmed Sherif, Ahmed was very thorough on delivering the Egyptian Cultural History to us throughout the day with great passion. Ahmed was also helpful with taking pictures for us, any gift purchases we needed & also at our buffet lunch. Our drivers Phillipe who was helpful on our stop offs & a gentleman (my husband named him Lewis Hamilton driver haha) & Sahla from Johnny tours were also very good and very punctual throughout the day. Our day was approx 23 hours in a lovely clean air conditioned bus.

If your staying in Makadi Bay (Red Sea Resort Hotel group) the pick up and drop off will be outside of the complex NOT at the reception - due to hotel policy. Pick up driver is punctual and friendly and will intercept the bus in Hurguarda. Worrying that the drivers are constantly on their phones while driving, so no sleep. Early start 1;30 late finish 1:30 next day. Cost is a fraction of what the hotel/ holiday company charge and follows the same itinerary. A long journey, lots of police checks, long day but well worth it. Trip details sent by whatsapp. Will need to forward a photo of the passports and names of all in your party.
