For the budget conscious traveler who doesn't want to miss the chance to explore the magnificent city of Cairo, this coach excursion is your answer. See the Great Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza, grab a bargain at Khan el-Khalili markets and delve into history at the world famous Egyptian Museum. Depart from your Sharm el Sheikh hotel and drive to Cairo, home to the Great Pyramids and Sphinx. Your Egyptologist guide will introduce you to each of the pyramids from the outside and you will have time to enter inside one (additional cost). Continue across the plateau for a photo opportunity of the pyramids rising ]ppfrom the sands with the Cairo skyline in the background. A short drive across the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the Sphinx. Also in Giza you may visit the Solar Boat Museum (optional), home to the funerary boat of Khufu, considered one of the best Egyptian finds since Tutankhamun's tomb.

 

Housing 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo attracts millions of visitors a year. The highlight for most are the rooms containing the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamun. His six gold gilded coffins dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the must-see item of the day. The Royal Mummies Room (additional cost) is also popular. Here you can see the mummies of many great Egyptian rulers, including Ramses II. Your guide will introduce you to the most important pieces in the museum before allowing you free time to explore.

 

Continuing to Khan el Khalili bazaar, your guide will introduce you to the famous markets. Enjoy free time to stroll through the maze of streets and try your luck bargaining for a souvenir of your trip to Egypt. This is a private tour allowing you to determine the amount of time spent at each site during the tour. In addition you will have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how this famous artwork is made and to purchase genuine items if you wish.
