Day 2: Cairo - Dahab

This morning we venture to the Giza Plateau to explore the great pyramids and Sphinx in all their ancient glory. Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus are the sole survivors of the Seven Ancient Wonders. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon are long gone, but the enduring pyramids have been attracting and mesmerising the hungry eyes of travellers since ancient times. Cheops (Khufu) is the oldest and biggest. It stood 146.5m high when it was completed in 2600BC. After 46 centuries, its height has only reduced by 9m! For a real Arabian experience, consider haggling for a camel ride. This evening we transfer to the Cairo bus station for our overnight bus to Dahab. Overnight - Bus
