Day 1

Departing after breakfast head towards the Giza Plateau, a UNESCO-World Heritage Site and home to some Cairo’s most famous treasures. The first stop is at the three iconic pyramids known as Cheops, Chephren and Myrcerinus. Set on the West Bank of the River Nile these age-old pyramids are the sole survivors from the Great Wonders of the Ancient World, and are one of the planet’s oldest tourist attractions. Originally built as royal tombs during Egypt’s Old and Middle Kingdom Periods, they are riddled with a maze of passage ways designed to protect the Mummies of the Pharaohs and the treasures which they would take with them to the afterlife. There will also be an opportunity to snap a few photos with the world-famous Sphinx, an impressive 50 metre tall statue with the body of a feline and head of a human carved out of a single piece of rock.

Later move on to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, which boasts an impressive collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts. Here you will discover an entire gallery dedicated to Tutankhamen and the treasures unearthed in his tomb in 1922, including the world-renowned blue and gold mask in which he was laid to rest. For an extra fee you can also check out the eerie Royal Mummy Room, where nine mummified bodies from the New Kingdom can be seen on display.
