The day begins when your qualified Egyptologist guide collects you from your Cairo or Giza hotel for the short drive to the iconic Pyramids of Giza. See the three great pyramids, built for the mummies of the pharaohs Cheops (Khufu), Khafre, and Menkaure, admire the half-lion, half-human Great Sphinx, and visit the Valley Temple.
After an early lunch at a local restaurant, hop back in the air-conditioned vehicle for the drive to the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, by way of Tahrir Square. This is home to perhaps the world’s greatest selection of Egyptian artefacts: don’t miss the death mask of the boy king Tutankhamen.
Your last stop? Medieval Islamic Cairo. Shop for leather, gold, perfumes, spices, kohl, and so much more at the Khan al-Khalili Bazaar, Egypt’s oldest and most vibrant souk. Finally, your driver will drop you back at your hotel.
