Day 2

The Pyramids of Giza & the Egyptian Museum

After breakfast at our hotel, we’ll head out with our guide to the famous pyramids of Giza and the huge Sphinx. These ancient wonders are the sole survivors from the ancient Greek-listed Seven Wonders of the World and it is said that the pyramids are the planet’s oldest tourist attraction! Marvel at Cheops (Khufu) - the Great Pyramid which was constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks and is thought to have taken more than 20 years to construct. Whilst exploring Giza, you can opt to go inside one of the pyramids, subject to being open. Not built for the purpose of accommodating curious travellers, a visit inside one of the pyramids is hot, humid and not recommended for those that are claustrophobic – but you do feel a bit like Indiana Jones! For a real Arabian experience, why not hire a camel for a trot across the sands of Giza past one of the most famous backdrops in the world – great photo opportunities.

After time for lunch and a little respite, we’ll 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 artefacts. During the visit you can choose to visit the Royal Mummy Room, where 9 royal mummies from the New Kingdom are displayed. Once you’ve had your fill of ancient Egypt – head back to the hotel with the remainder of the day at leisure.

My husband, son and his wife and myself were very pleased with the service we had with your tour company. Amir our tour guide was very helpful and very pleasant to be with. I would highly recommend him. We could not have wished for better service both by him and the driver. Thank you for such a great tour of your country Egypt.
