This full day tour will give you a glimpse into one of the greatest civilisations the world has known - the ancient Egyptians. Not only will you get to see the three enormous Pyramids of Giza, the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, but you’ll call in at the world famous Cairo Museum, too. It all begins with a drive to the big bustling city of Cairo. Once you arrive, you’ll make your way to the National Archaeological Museum, home to the biggest – and most important - collection of Egyptian antiquities in the world. Your guided tour takes in everything from the Rosetta Stone replica to treasures taken from Tutankamun’s tomb. After that, stop for a buffet lunch before making your way to the Giza Plateau and Cairo’s star attraction – the pyramids. Feast your eyes on the panoramic views and capture them on camera, before heading closer to the pyramids for a second stop. Then journey down the valley to see the guardian of this mortuary complex - the Sphinx. Your final port of call is the Papyrus Institute and a chance to put a dent in your holiday kitty with a little souvenir shopping before heading back to the ship.
The Mummies room is an optional extra payable locally. Please remember the National Archaeological Museum is a popular tourist destination, therefore, will be busy. Please feel free to break away from your group, just check the meeting time and place with your guide. Also cameras are not permitted inside the Museum, you can leave them on the coach.
