Pass By: Hurghada, Hurghada, Red Sea and Sinai

Leave your Hurghada hotel very early by private, air-conditioned vehicle, and make the journey to the capital, Cairo. On arrival, meet your private Egyptologist guide and start your tour of this world-famous city’s highlights. Head first to the Giza Plateau to see the Giza Pyramids. Marvel at the three mighty burial tombs, built around 2,500 BC, and one of the last remaining Ancient Wonders of the World. Feast your eyes on the largest of the tombs: the Great Pyramid. Constructed from 2.3 million stone blocks, this incredible edifice is a masterpiece of engineering and is believed to have taken up to 20 years to build. See the enigmatic Sphinx, the mysterious statue of a human-headed lion that guards the pyramids, and if you wish, go inside (additional cost) one of the pyramids to witness the inner chambers — your guide is not permitted to accompany you during a visit. Also, perhaps visit the Solar Boat Museum (additional cost), home to the stunning funerary boat of Khufu, the pharaoh for whom the Great Pyramid was built. Gaze in awe at the cedar-wood boat, used to transport Khufu’s body to the site, and learn how its remnants were discovered and reassembled. Afterward, stop for lunch and continue to Cairo's Egyptian Museum, home to an astounding collection of some 120,000 ancient artifacts. Explore some of the museum’s highlights, including the must-see Tutankhamun collection. Be wowed by the boy king’s golden death mask, coffins and funerary riches, and learn about this short reign and the mysteries of his death. Next, visit Khan el-Khalili bazaar, Cairo’s main souk. Delve into the bustling lanes and perhaps haggle for souvenirs at the shops selling trinkets, gold, spices and other goodies. Pay a visit to a papyrus institute to see how these time-honored artworks are created and if you wish, purchase some papyrus paintings as mementos. Finally, return to Hurghada, where your day ends with a hotel drop-off.
