Cairo Day Tour From Port Said
Your Cairo day tour from Port Said begins by meeting your tour guide at Port Said. Then, take a transfer to Cairo. Once you arrive in Cairo, you will commence your Cairo day tour from Port Said. Visit the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx.
Giza Plateau, the site of the necropolis of the 4th Dynasty. It is located just outside of the outskirts of Cairo on the esplanade known as the Giza Plateau, the Great Pyramids of Giza are the must-see Ancient Egyptian landmark. Known as Khufu’s Pyramid, it is the greatest pyramid of the complex: a truly overwhelming sight.
Being one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, it is the only one still standing to this day! When gazing at this colossal structure, there’s no way to escape the feeling of being dwarfed. The two smaller – but still huge – pyramids at Giza are those of Khafre and Menkaure. A few steps to the east you will notice three small (20 m high) piles of rubble: the queens’ pyramids, and tombs of Khufu’s wives and sisters.
A causeway slopes down to the giant Sphinx. The Sphinx is a mythical creature with the head of a human, a Falcon, a Cat, or a Sheep, and the body of a lion with the wings of an Eagle. In Greek tradition, the Sphinx has the head of a woman, the haunches of a Lion, and the wings of a bird.
Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant, then proceed to the Egyptian Museum. Second part of your Cairo day tour from Port Said takes you to the stunning Egyptian Museum. The Egyptian Museum is the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East and houses the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world. The museum displays an extensive collection spanning from the Predynastic Period to the Greco-Roman Era. The Museum is home to some of the world’s most magnificent ancient masterpieces.
Among the museum’s unrivaled collection is the treasure of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamen, the complete burials of Yuya and Thuya, and the Narmer Palette commemorating the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under one king, which is also among the museum’s invaluable artifacts. The museum also houses the splendid statues of the great kings Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, the builders of the pyramids at the Giza plateau. An extensive collection of papyri, sarcophagi, and jewelry, among other objects, completes this uniquely expansive museum.
Your Cairo day tour from Port Said came to an end. So, take a transfer back to your cruise ship at Port Said.
