Full Day Cairo From Hurghada


High Tours representative will pick up from hotel in Hurghada and transfer you by air-conditioned private minivan to Cairo. Upon arrival Giza you will start your tour by 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. Then proceed 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. Move to visit Coptic Cairo to see the Christian heritage of Cairo such as the hanging church, as well as Ben Ezra synagogue. In the afternoon enjoy shopping the Khan El Kahili Bazaar and El Sagha (jewellery shops). It is one of the earliest and greatest markets in the Middle East.
