Full day tour of Giza, the Egyptian Museum, and the Khan el-Khalili bazaar
Take a leisurely tour of Cairo’s most famous sites : The Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Egyptian Museum and Khan el-Khalili bazaar. With your own Egyptologist guide to lead the way, you’ll see Cairo’s most famous attractions in one day. One of the advenages of your tour is that you can determine the amount of time you’d like to spend at each site. Your Day tour begins with a fascinating introduction to each of the three Giza pyramids: Cheops, Khafre and Menakaure. You will have free time to enter one of the pyramids (additional cost), though your guide is not permitted to enter with you. A short drive to the city side of the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the Sphinx, the enigmatic symbol of Egypt. Also in Giza you may visit the Solar Boat Museum (optional, at an additional cost), home to the remarkably well preserved funerary boat of Khufu.
Cairo’s famous Egyptian Museum houses 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, but the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamun are the highlight. His three gilded coffins dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the star attraction. Your guide will introduce you to the museum’s most important pieces before you have free time to explore at your leisure.
Continuing to Khan el Khalili bazaar, you’ll enjoy free time to stroll through the maze of streets and bargain for a souvenir of your trip to Egypt. During the day you will also have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how the famous artwork is made.
