Day Trip to Cairo by Bus

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Flights to Cairo and independent transportation can work out expensive. Be kind to your wallet on this cost-effective guided coach tour that checks off Cairo’s three must-see ancient Egyptian attractions—the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx, and the Egyptian Antiquities Museum—complete with an included lunch.
  • Travel Hurghada to Cairo and back, door-to-door, by air-conditioned coach
  • See the Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, and the Egyptian Antiquities Museum
  • Learn about ancient Egyptian history from your guide
  • Enjoy a typical Egyptian lunch at a restaurant near the pyramids
What to Expect
After an early pickup from your Hurghada hotel, catch 40 winks as you journey to Cairo in air-conditioned comfort. Your guide escorts you around your first stop, the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, home to over 120,000 ancient Egyptian masterpieces, including the death mask of the boy king Tutankhamun. Next, it’s a short drive to Giza for lunch in a local restaurant before you take in the Pyramids of Giza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your guide shows you the three main pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and the Valley Temple where the pharaoh Khafre was made into a mummy. Finally, visit a perfume museum before you start the journey back to Hurghada.
