Full-Day Giza Pyramids and Cairo Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Short on time? Enjoy the highlights of ancient and modern Cairo in this 8-hour tour, which takes you from the 4,500-year-old Pyramids of Giza all the way through to Tahrir Square, where the Arab Spring began. You'll also visit the Sphinx and Valley Temple, eat a local lunch, tour the Egyptian Museum, and explore the Khan el-Khalili bazaar.

The tour could be sharing with others if there other guests booked it on same date
  • See four of Cairo’s major sights in one day, with hotel pickup and drop-off
  • Learn about ancient Egyptian culture from your Egyptologist guide
  • Shop the perfect souvenir in the Khan al-Khalili Bazaar
  • Enjoy a traditional Egyptian lunch at a local restaurant
What to Expect
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.

I don't remember seeing any there. There are lots of mummies to see at the Grand Egyptian Museum in downtown Cairo. Just make sure to buy the additional ticket to the Mummy Rooms - there are two rooms.

I don’t believe they have child pricing. A ticket is a ticket.
