You will begin your Cairo Layover: The Pyramids and Museum Express Tour, by meeting your Egyptologist tour guide at Cairo International Airport, who be waiting for you with a signboard of your name. You will commence your tour by driving (30-60 minutes) to the iconic Giza Pyramids. The Great Pyramids of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The pyramids are located on the outskirts of Cairo.
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.
Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant, then proceed to the Egyptian Museum. The Egyptian Museum is the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East and houses the world’s most extensive collection of Pharaonic antiquities. 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.
