The tomb of King Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings
Hello Cairo! Today, enjoy a guided visit to the famous pyramids and huge Sphinx at Giza Plateau. Sole survivors from the ancient Greek-listed Seven Wonders of the World, the pyramids are the planet’s oldest tourist attraction! Gaze in awe at Cheops (Khufu) - the largest of the three great pyramids. Constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks it is thought to have taken more than 20 years to construct. Whilst here, you can opt to enter inside one of the pyramids, subject to opening. Not built for the purpose of accommodating curious travellers, a visit inside one of the pyramids is hot, humid and not recommended for the claustrophobic! For a real Arabian experience, perhaps opt to hire a camel for a trot across the sands of Giza.

After time for lunch and a little respite we embark upon a guided tour of the famous Egyptian National Museum of Antiquities. In addition to witnessing the priceless funerary treasures of King Tutankhamen, including his legendary solid gold death mask, the museum boasts an amazing and certainly extensive collection of some 120 000 ancient Egyptian artifacts. Also during the visit you can choose to visit the Royal Mummy Room, where 9 royal mummies from the New Kingdom is displayed. Overnight - Cairo (B)
