Cairo City and Pyramids Tour from Hurghada

Hotel Pickup

We'll pick you up early (2am) from your hotel in Hurghada and drive through the night to Cairo, where we'll begin our tour of the magnificent Cairo.

Cairo Tour to the Great Pyramid of Giza

Also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops, the Great Pyramid is the oldest and largest of the Pyramids of Giza. Composed of over 2.3 million blocks of granite weighing 25-80 tonnes each, the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one that still remains largely intact, the Great Pyramid never fails to astound and amaze. Built over a 20 year period, the Great Pyramid initially stood at 146 meters, making it the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years.

Our highly-trained Egyptologist tour guide will be able to give you any information you need on the Pyramids including supposed construction methods (nobody really knows for sure), materials used, labour used and why the pyramids were built.

There are three known chambers inside the Great Pyramid, the lowest was cut into the bedrock beneath the pyramid, with the Kings chamber and Queens chamber higher up in the structure. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only pyramid in Egypt known to contain both ascending and descending passages.

The main part of the Giza complex is a set of building that include two mortuary temples, three smaller pyramids for Khufu's wives, an even smaller pyramid, a raised causeway connecting the two temples and smaller tombs for nobles.

Visit the Sphinx on our Cairo Sightseeing Tour

Translated as "Ther Terrifying One" but more commonly referred to as the Sphinx, this limestone statue of a mythical creature with a lions body and human head stands on the west bank of the Nile in Giza.

Believed to have been built by the ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdon during the reign of Pharoh Khafra around 2558 BC (the Pharoh who built the second pyramid), this amazing statue stands 20m high and 73 meters long and is the oldest known monumental sculpture in the world.

Throughout Egyptian history the Sphinz has been reveared with ancient Egyptians looking up at it with "divinity", and even to today it remains shrouded in mystery, with basic information like when it was built and by whom still debated. There are even theories of Kings being buried in it!

The Sphix is an awesome sight and rich in history, over its lifetime being buried in sand for hundreds of years and then dug back out. There are also stories of Napoleon's soldiers shooting cannonballs at the great Sphinx and breaking off it's nose.

Khafre's Tremples

At the base of Khafre's pyramid, the second tallest of the Pyramids of Giza, lies Khafres temple complex. These have remained in much better condition that other temples in the area and is the best example for us to explore. Built from megalithic blocks, weighing up to 400 tonnes each, this beautiful temple houses five storage chambers, an entrance hall, a columned court and an inner sanctuary to explore.

The interior of the temple has been remarkably well preserved and the temple of Giza are an amazing sight that have to be seen.

Lunch on the Nile

After exploring Cairo Museum we'll have a delicious buffet lunch at a restaurant alongside the famous River Nile, the lifeblood of Cairo.

Egyptian Museum Tour

Inside this massive and world-famous museum you'll find the most important pieces of Egyptian history including Pharaonic antiques and the treasure of Egypt's best known King, Tutankhamen. This massive museum in Tahir Square was established in 1902 and includes seven floors filled with fascinating artifacts such as two statues of King Tutankhamen made of cedar wood and covered in fine gold, a statue of King Akhenaton, Ushabtis statues that belonged to the Nubian kings, a mummy of a child and a small plychrome glass vase.

During the Egyptian revolution of 2011the museum was broken into and two mummies were destroyed as well as around 50 objects being lost and several damaged. Since then 25 of those objects have been successfully recovered.

The Egyptian Museum spans across 2 floors, the ground floor housing numerous objects including papyrus with written Greek, Latin, Arabic and ancient Egyptian, and coins, again not only Egyptian ones but also Greek, Roman and Islamic, highlighting Egypt's rich history. The ground floor also houses large statues, tables and coffins.

On the first floor you'll find artefacts from the final two dynasties of Egypt including items from the tombs of Pharohs Tutmosis III, Thutmosis IV, Amenophis II, Hatshepsut, and the courtier Maiherpri, as well as many artefacts from the Valley of the Kings, in particular the material from the intact tombs of Tutankhamen and Psusennes I. Two special rooms contain a number of mummies of kings and other royal family members of the New Kingdom.

The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities is a fascinating place that allows you to see all the antiques that would have been buried in the ancient kings of Egypt's tombs and pyramids as well as some of the mummified kings themselves.

Optional Sound and Light Show

To end our fabulous tour of Cairo there's an hour at the end where you can decide to either watch the sound and light show at the pyramids or do your own thing for an hour.

Drive back to your Hotel in Hurghada

Our guided tour of Cairo takes you to one of the most amazing sights in the World - the Great Pyramid of Giza, we'll see inside an ancient unearthed tomb, see the mythical Sphinx, and the bazaars. You'll finally get to see the sights and places we all learnt about at school or watched a program on TV about in a day that you'll always remember, and you'll come back much more interested in Egypt's fascinating history that when you left.

After a fantastic day we'll drive back to Hurghada in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach where we'll drop you to your hotel.

Cairo Tour from Hurghada - by Road
This was the first time we had ever booked excursions through an external party and not used our travel company rep. We were anxious to begin with that things wouldn't go to plan and all I can say is that any anxieties were laid to rest very quickly and because of our experience with egyptexcusions.co.uk (aka sharm excursions aka al raga tours) we are desperate to return to Egypt and enjoy more experiences in this history and culture filled country. We booked the airport pick up and our flight was delayed by 3 hours but we were still greeted on time by our friendly driver with a warm welcome. We were transported to our hotel and given useful information and advice along the way and were told of all of the finer details of the other excursions we had booked which gave us piece of mind for the rest of our trip. We were given a local contact number in case of any problems or if we had any questions. We went on the quad bike excursions that included a camel ride and visit to a Bedoun tribe. This was professionally run with bilingual staff and exceptional value for money. The experience was amazing and we had a great day. We booked the Cairo trip by road and this is where I would like to give a special mention as this excursion made our holiday and inspired us to return back to Egypt as soon as we can and without doubt book with this excursion company again. We had a personal guide named Osama who was polite, helpful, intelligent, approachable, professional and great company but above all things he was a bank of remarkable knowledge . Osama is an Egyptologist and was able to confidently answer any questions but gave us a remarkable history lesson during our day with him. He took the best pictures and filled us with a passion to return back to Egypt and learn more. Anything we expressed that we wanted to do or know Osama went out of his way to make it possible. I loved the cartouche jewellery piece that Osama wore and he took us to the place he bought his, he was friends with the manager and we were treated so well and were able to buy a lovely Egyptian piece that has a lot of sentiment. I became ill and Sam went and got me medication which made me feel much better and in the early hours when we arrived we were a bit cold and he offered to go and get us warm jackets and he took us for a coffee which he insisted he paid for. Also we didn't have enough money with us to do all the extra things we wanted to do on the trip and Osama paid these things out of his own pocket and allowed us to give him the money at the end of the day. All in all we cant speak highly enough about our experience with a special thanks to Osama and his driver. Claire and John Dundee

We booked our trip to Cairo before leaving home , a little skeptical at first but had no need to worry. We were picked up by our driver bang on time along with 2other couple's . After along drive we arrived in Cairo early morning picking up Fatma Bayomi Shaffey our guide for the next too days (I must say our most valuable guide ) Fatma guided us around the museum with great expertise I learnt so much . After lunch we went to the pyramids again fatma was a mind of information and a fantastic photographer she took charge of our cameras and photographed us climbing the pyramids, she also kept the sellers at bay but got us some great deals on gifts we did want to buy . Our over night hotel was great lovely food . That evening fatma and hussin our driver came back to pick us up to take us to the sound and light show at the pyramids it wasn't on the engender but nothing was too much trouble . Next were picked up from hotel with a free choice of what ever we wanted to see or do . Old Cairo town was chosen another great day . Fatma and Husain you couldn't has asked for a better guide and driver ,hope any one booking a trip have the great experience these two provide ,we left having made two new friends .

Cairo Tour from Hurghada - by Road
Went on 3 trips. But this was the best. Had a private tour. Bus picked us up very early. Drivers were good. Had a break at a kind of service station. Then to Cairo . Met our guide Memo at Egyptian museum. He was very knowledgeable. Learned a lot. We then went to a papyrus place. Then to a nice restaurant for lunch. We then went to pyramids. How awesome. Memo kept the touts away from us. He explained to us the history of the pyramids. He kept us supplied with drinks. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He was the best. He suggested a trip on the Nile. So we did that also. Best day out

Cairo Tour from Hurghada - by Road
We booked 4 tours with Egypt Excursions for our holiday in Hurghada. The booking was easy and we were met on our first evening outside our hotel to pay the balance.
Its a very early start for the Cairo trip but Tahib our driver was very friendly and picked us up on time. Our guide Mahmood met us at the Cairo Museum and showed us the amazing treasures there! It was really interesting to see the finds from King Tut's tomb. We then had a boat trip on the Nile. This was an optional extra for £10GBP per person. This was followed by lunch before heading to the pyramids. They are an amazing sight and we got to go inside one of the smaller ones. There's then also the choice to do a camel ride where you can get a great view of the pyramids and is definitely worth doing. Then we got to see the sphinx which was also really interesting. There were lots of photo opportunities. As part of the trip we also stopped at a place that made papyrus and a perfumery. Overall this trip was a great experience and would definitely recommend it!

A very well-desered 5 star review for Mahmood, Mohamed and everyone else at Egypt Excursions for our Cairo Tour from Hurghada! After paying the balance to Mahmoud at our hotel a few days before the trip we were given our tickets as well as all other information we would need.

I'm not sure if it's because Hurghada is quiet at the moment or they are always like this, but we were treated excellently by our lovely tour guide Mahmood (who has 2 young children himself and is fantastic with kids!).

We saw all the things we wanted to see in Cairo at at good price - going by plane would have been better but you pay the extra for it. This is a really good day, and like the other reviewers before us we would definitely recommend it.
