Itinerary

Cairo Layover: The Pyramids and Museum Express Tour

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.

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. 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.

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
 
If the time permits, you will proceed to the largest and oldest bazaar in Cairo, the Khan El-Khalili Bazaar. Khan El-Khalili is Cairo’s labyrinthine and most famous tourist market. Khan El-Khalili is bounded on the east by Sayyidna Al-Hussein and on the south by Muski street. Khan and Muski are two terms used interchangeably by foreigners and Egyptians alike, but they are actually two different adjoining bazaar areas.
You will end your Cairo Layover: The Pyramids and the Museum Express Tour with a transfer back to Cairo International Airport.
