After early-morning pickup by private air-conditioned vehicle at your Sharm el-Sheikh hotel, transfer to the bus station and board the shared, air-conditioned bus destined for Cairo. The bus has onboard toilet facilities and your journey will take approximately six hours.
Along the way, catch up on sleep and enter Cairo’s outskirts as the sun rises over Egypt’s fascinating capital.
On arrival, meet your local guide and enjoy a welcome drink before setting out by climate-controlled minivan.
First, visit the Egyptian Museum, home to the world’s greatest collection of pharaonic artifacts, including Tutankhamun’s treasures.
Tour the Tutankhamun rooms to see the boy king’s royal and funerary treasures, including his solid-gold death mask.
Then, after time to see more displays, such as mummified ancient animals, refuel with lunch at a quality local restaurant.
Afterward, visit the Giza plateau to see the UNESCO-listed pyramids. Marvel at the three towering pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos, and view the Great Sphinx, all constructed about 4,500 years ago.
Learn how and why they were built and enjoy ample photo opportunities before a transfer to the bus station and your return journey. Your tour then finishes with private vehicle transfer back to your Sharm hotel.
