After pickup from your Hurghada hotel at 2am, enjoy a rest on the 5-hour drive to Cairo by comfortable, air-conditioned bus: please arrange a breakfast box with your hotel. On arrival, you'll meet your Egyptologist guide, who'll escort you to the Pyramids of Giza. Marvel at the three famous pyramids, built by the pharaohs Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure. Witness the mighty Sphinx, a half-lion, half-human creation that's one of the world's largest and oldest monumental statues. Then explore the beautifully preserved Valley Temple, which was buried under sand for thousands of years. (Should you wish to climb inside a pyramid, or visit the Solar Boat Museum, additional charges apply.)
Next, it's back on the bus and into Cairo for a well-deserved lunch at a Nile-side restaurant. After lunch, tour the Egyptian Museum, one of the greatest assemblies of ancient Egyptian artefacts in the world, with over 120,000 items in its vast collection, including the treasures of King Tutankhamen's tomb. You'll leave Cairo around 5pm and arrive back at your hotel around 10pm.
