After pickup from your Cairo hotel, board an air-conditioned minivan destined for the Egyptian Antiquities Museum (admission at own expense,) home to a glittering collection of ancient treasures. On arrival, you’ll embark on a guided tour of the museum: behold the iconic golden death mask of King Tutankhamen and see the mummified corpses of royal personages in the Royal Mummy Room.
Appease your appetite with lunch a local Egyptian restaurant and then head to the Giza Pyramids (admission at own expense) — the sole survivor of the Seven Wonders of the World. Climb onto a camel and follow your guide to significant structures, including the colossal Cheops pyramid.
Stop regularly to uncover the secrets of pyramid construction before relaxing on the journey back to your Cairo hotel, where the tour concludes.
