2-day Cairo Layover Sightseeing Tour
The layover tour in Cairo: two intense days full of adventures! See the Great Pyramids, Sphinx, Sakkara, Memphis, and the Step Pyramids of King Zoser on your first day and the Egyptian Museum, Citadel, and Bazaar on the second.
Day 1. Giza Pyramids, the Sphinx, Memphis, Sakkara, and Dahshur Pyramids.
We'll meet you at the airport and start our day by visiting the Great Pyramids. We'll see the Valley Temple, where the priests mummified the dead body of King Chephren, the owner of the second pyramid on the Giza Plateau. You will get a close-up look at the Sphinx — the legendary guardian with the lion's body and the head of King Chephren that stands by the massive funeral complex. Next, we will move to Sakkara (located only 27 km southwest of Cairo) to see the Step Pyramid, and then to Memphis City, the ancient capital of Egypt, where we will witness the colossal statue of Ramses II and the great Alabaster Sphinx. We will continue our tour by visiting the Dahshur Pyramids, and at the end of the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
Day 2. The Egyptian Museum, Citadel, and Bazaar.
Enjoy your breakfast at the hotel, then start your day by visiting the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities. It displays the world's most important and most precious items of Egyptian art. It exhibits a rare collection of over 250,000 genuine artifacts that date as far back as 5000 years, including an exclusive exhibit dedicated to Tutankhamon — treasures, gold, and jewelry buried in his tomb for over 3,500 years before they were discovered when his tomb was excavated. Then we'll move to the Citadel of Saladin, where you can visit the Mohamed Ali Mosque, the Alabaster Mosque, and the Khan El Khalili Bazaars. Shops in this district are legendary for fine brassware, copper, perfumes, leather, silver, gold, antiques, etc. At the end of our fantastic tour, we will transfer you back to Cairo International Airport (or your hotel).
