Your fabulous Cairo day trip from Sharm El-Sheikh by plane begins when our representative/driver picks you up from your hotel to transfer you to Sharm El-Sheikh Airport for a one-hour flight to Cairo. You will meet your guide just outside the terminal at Cairo Airport to commence Cairo day trip to;
Giza Plateau is 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.
