Private Tour: Cairo Day Trip from Hurghada

Cairo, Egypt

Following your arrival in Cairo, your Egyptologist private guide will introduce you to the history of the pyramids. You will have time to enter one of the pyramids (additional cost), but your guide is not permitted to escort you. A short drive across the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the enigmatic Sphinx. Also in Giza you may visit the Solar Boat Museum (optional), 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 six gilded coffins dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the star attraction.

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. You will also have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how the famous artwork is made before driving back to Hurghada.

The trip was amazing, although a little disappointed with the guide as he spoke very broken English and normally took French groups.

An absolutely amazing trip, the stops on the tour alone are worth the price! We travelled as a group of 5 and were personally cared for by our tour guide, driver and assistant, all of whom were faultless throughout, very helpful and friendly. The sites are incredible, unmissable if you plan on going to Egypt, and I would always book my excursions with Viator in future, simply fantastic!

We started our day at 2.30am and there was a long journey ahead of us- over 6 hours in a minibus waking up at rush hour in Cairo where traffic and pedestrians are mental- bikes, taxis, lorries coaches and cars swerving through roads built for 2 lanes where 4 sometimes 6 try and squeeze with people navigating the danger. We arrived at the Cairo museum exhausted and met our guide - Henry. He was excellent, friendly, welcoming, extremely knowledgeable and the best part of our trip. He showed us the highlights of the sights in the museum stopping for coffee to wake us up and then we headed to lunch overlooking the pyramids. We then headed to a papyrus factory and silver/gold cartouche design place with very good quality products- much better than tourist rubbish. Then the highlight of the tour- the Great Pyramid which is staggering in size and well worth the entrance price. We went inside the Pyramid but it would be very difficult for people with mobility problems as we encountered a group of elderly Asian ladies struggling at one particularly point. The panoramic view of the three great pyramids with the Sahara as the backdrop was majestic. We then visited the Sphynx and Henry took us to a private viewing point superb for photos of the Sphynx and the pyramids. After this we visited a cotton factory lovely bedsheets for a decent price.
The journey back was crazy as the junior driver of the two overtook lorries on blind bends and went so fast that I hit my head a few times on the seats and the roof!
All in all it was a very good trip with the journey there and back being the one drawback- we should have booked the internal flight to Cairo from Hurghada which would have massively improved this trip.

Extremely long drive but our driver, Iman, was helpful with information along with our guide. Wish we had done the outside tours in the morning and done the museum in the afternoon. It was very hot in the mid-afternoon. Our guide was knowledgeable and kept asking us if we had any questions he could answer.
