Take a trip from Safaga to the most popular tourist attractions of Cairo. This is a great chance to take a closer look at the pyramids of Giza and explore the Egyptian Museum. Find out more about the history of ancient Egypt as you browse around the Egyptian Museum that has 107 halls with statues of kings, gods and goddesses in the ground floor, while the upper floor houses small statues, jewels and Tutankhamen treasures.

Marvel at the Giza pyramids guarded by the mysterious Egyptian Sphinx which has the body of a lion and a human head. A tour to the pyramids of Giza will reveal some interesting facts about the history and culture of ancient Egypt.


This tour has two options; you can either take a flight or a coach tour to Cairo. You will be picked up in an air-conditioned deluxe vehicle from your hotel in Safaga. Accompanied by a Egyptologist guide, you will be taken on a tour of Cairo, the capital city of Egypt.

You will be taken to the Egyptian Museum, situated in the Tahirr Square in Cairo. The museum was first built in Boulak, but in 1891, it was moved to Giza Palace of ‘Ismail Pasha’ which housed the antiques that were later moved to the present building.

There are 107 halls in the museum. At the ground floor there are huge statues. The upper floor houses small statues, jewels and Tutankhamen treasures. It is the largest Egyptian antiques museum in the world and houses about 250,000 antique pieces covering the whole history of ancient Egypt, which extends over the past five thousand years. The Egyptian Museum comprises many sections arranged in chronological order.

Further on, proceed to the pyramids of Giza that lies on the west bank of the Nile facing Cairo. On top of Giza plateau rise the three pyramids erected by Cheops, Chepren and Mycerinus, guarded by the mysterious Sphinx which is a mythical statue with the body of a lion and a human head.

Five thousand years ago, Giza became the royal burial place for Memphis, the Pharaoh’s capital city. Giza’a three pyramids and the Sphinx were constructed in the 4th dynasty of Egypt’s Old Kingdom. About 2,500 BC, King Khufu, the second pharaoh of the fourth dynasty, commissioned the building of his tomb at Giza. On an average, over 2 million blocks of stone was used to build Khufu’s pyramid, and the heaviest blocks were used as the ceiling of Khufu’s burial chamber. Khufu’s son was the next in the royal line who commissioned the building of his own pyramid complex which includes the Sphinx. Each pyramid has a mortuary temple and a valley temple linked by long causeways that were rooted and walled. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant.

After sightseeing in Cairo, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Safaga.
