See the ancient wonders of the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo on a private shore excursion from Suez Port. Travel by air-conditioned vehicle in the company of an expert Egyptologist.
What to Expect
Spend the day uncovering the mysteries of Ancient Egypt on this full day, history-filled tour from Suez Port. You will drive to the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, just outside Cairo, before continuing to the city center to view the exhibits at the Egyptian Museum.
You will be met at Suez Port by your driver and taken across the desert plateau where you will arrive at the only remaining monument of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Take time to explore the Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinus. Your guide will describe the story of their monumental construction and tell you about their mysteries.
Move on to the Great Sphinx, still standing proudly in the desert sand after thousands of years. Admire the colossal structure before moving to the Valley Temple, belonging to the Pyramid of Cephren.
Lunch will be served at a local restaurant, before driving to Cairo’s Tahrir Square and the famous Egyptian Museum. The French architect Marcel Dourgnon built the museum in a neo-classical style and its collections exceed 120,000 masterpieces, ranging from the pre-dynastic era to the Pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods.
An undoubted highlight will be the treasures of the child King Tutankhamen, but take time to explore the wealth of relics from other Pharaonic Gods and Goddesses among the many exhibits, before your transfer back through the desert to Suez Port.
