From $150 per personFree Inquiry
Day 1 One Day Cairo Tour
The Great Sphinx
The Great Sphinx
In the morning, our private Egyptian insider guide will pick you up from your downtown hotel, and then embark on a wonderful Cairo day tour to one of the seven world wonders, the mind-boggling Great Pyramids at Giza. Viewed as the symbols of Egypt, three magnificent pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure have been perched in the desert for over 4,500 years, showing the Pharaohs' pursuit of sovereign power. It is still an ultimate puzzle as to how they were built with those gigantic stone bricks. Among all, the Pyramid of Khufu is the largest, highest and the best-known one and allows you to venture into the burial vault discovering the inner mysteries of the pyramids. 

Then follows a stroll which will lead you to have a close-up glimpse of the huge Sphinx Sculpture gazing straight ahead. The statue was carved from the image of King Khafre with a lion's body, enjoying a remarkable height of 21 meters (69 feet). Like most travelers, you can take a picture with the statue by kissing its face at a distance. Afterwards, we will wander around the Valley Temple seated next to the Great Sphinx. It used to be the place for the pharaohs to practice burial rituals and make mummies, where a lot of walls and columns with carvings are still well retained.

Then a hearty lunch will be served at a local restaurant for you to have a taste of authentic Egyptian food. After a short break, your Cairo day trip will be greatly enriched by a visit to the Egyptian Museum. As one of the world's most brilliant museums, it collects treasures and relics up to 250,000 pieces that demonstrate the most glorious history and civilization of the country. The most awe-inspiring cultural relics are out of the mausoleum of Tutankhamen, including the famous Gold Mask, Golden Throne and Golden Coffin as well as the statues of the most renowned pharaohs. Your curiosity will be greatly fulfilled by the real mummies on display, and you even get a chance to know how they were made.

Around nightfall, you will be invited to board a felucca to cruise the world's longest river, the Nile. With a soft breeze brushing your cheeks, you can immerse yourself in the dazzling night views of the building complex by the waterfront. Away from the urban hustle and bustle, the sailboats offer you the chance to soak up the relaxing and romantic air of the Nile. Your memorable Cairo day tour draws to a close at that moment. After disembarkation from the felucca, you will be escorted back to your hotel. Wish you a good rest.
