Overview

The Giza Pyramids, the Egyptian Museum, and Old Cairo are three destinations rarely left off a classic Egypt itinerary, but traveling to Cairo from Hurghada means expensive flights or inconvenient public transport. See all three places in a single day with a 20-hour, private trip from Hurghada to Cairo for up to 15 people that includes door-to-door transport in a private vehicle, an Egyptologist guide, lunch, and entrance fees.
  • 20-hour, private trip from Hurghada to Cairo
  • Up to 15 people
  • Visit Giza Pyramids, Egyptian Museum, and Ibn Tulun mosque
  • Egyptologist guide
  • Lunch included
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
Make an early start for your trip to Cairo with 1am pickup at Hurghada hotels, and take a nap in a private vehicle during the 6-hour drive from Hurghada to Cairo.

Meet an Egyptologist guide upon arrival in Cairo, where you’ll start by visiting the Pyramids at Giza. Explore the Great Pyramid, the oldest remaining wonder of the ancient world, and the only one that’s largely preserved. Continue to the smaller pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure, then get sweeping views of the pyramids from the plateau. If desired, book a camel ride around the pyramids (own expense), before continuing to the Solar Boat museum (own expense) and the Sphinx. Tour the Valley Temple, then visit a nearby restaurant for lunch.

After your meal, continue to the Egyptian Museum, where you’ll find the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world. Take in the highlights of the 136,000-piece collection, which includes the treasures buried with King Tutankhamun, religious statues, animal mummies, and artwork. If desired, visit the Royal Mummy Room (own expense), where carefully preserved bodies have survived thousands of years.

Enter the walls of Old Cairo, where you’ll tour the Mosque of Ibn Tulun, the oldest surviving Cairo mosque still in its original form. Climb the minaret for views of the city, and walk the shady arcades that surround the mosque’s central courtyard.

At the end of your time in Cairo, make the return trip to Hurghada, and finish the day with drop-off at your hotel.

A really great day out,

The drive was not as bad as we thought managed to get some sleep in the morning

Pyramids and Museum was amazing as expected.

We travelled on a Friday which meant there was very little traffic in Cairo and we got more time there. would recommend

Our guide Madi was good, and spoke good English,

We felt a bit rushed through the museum though, and he was not very flexible with regard to our needs/interests.

However, the Pyramids visit was more relaxed and Madi was really great to show us some excellent photo locations.

The lunch was excellent, really tasty, traditional food. The staff at the lunch stop were really great and made the whole lunch experience fun and relaxing.

We stopped at a perfumery was good that Madi asked if we wanted too. The people there were really helpful and entertaining and good value products.

One thing to note is that we all got bitten on our ankles at the Mosque, so would advise to stay away from the carpets.

We were absolutely grateful to the drivers who put in an awful lot of hours.

Overall would definitely recommend doing it, our worry was that it would be such a long journey from Hurghada that we would be so shattered, but actually did not feel like that at all.
