Shore Excursion: Small-Group Guided Day Tour to Cairo from Alexandria

Summary

On this private shore excursion you will depart the pier for the approximate 3-hour drive through the flat desert landscape to Africa’s largest city, Cairo. Upon reaching the outskirts of Cairo, you will proceed to the Giza Plateau to discover the only remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, the Pyramids of Giza. It is here that three pharaohs, Cheops, his son Chephren and grandson Mykerinus, erected grand tombs to protect their bodies and their royal treasure as well.

Carved out of a solid natural rock around 2500 B.C., the Sphinx has the head of a man, body of a lion and stretches out to a length of 240 feet. The tour also includes a visit to the Valley Temple, which belongs to the Pyramids of Chephren. Then you will have a chance to do shopping at a papyrus institute and a souvenir shop .Continue your excursion to the Egyptian Museum, the most important depository of Egyptian antiquities in the world.
