Tour : Cairo - Full day Egyptian Museum - Giza Pyramids and Sphinx

Taking in two of Egypt’s ‘must visit’ sites, this full day tour should be top of the list of any itinerary. Take in the marvelous sights of the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza as you step back in time some 4000 years before going face-to-face with the death mask of Egypt’s youngest Pharaoh, Tut Ankh Amun.


The Egyptian Museum is the most important depository of Egyptian antiquities anywhere in the world. It features artifacts from the Pharaonic and Graeco-Roman periods, including the celebrated mummies of ancient Egypt’s king and Tut Ankh Amun treasures.


Pyramids & Sphinx were reckoned by the Greeks to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World.  A single pyramid is built of 2,300,000 blocks, each weighing an average of two and one-half tons. In the face of such immensity, one cannot help but feel the wonder and awe that so many writers & artists have sought to convey over the centuries. The Cheops Pyramid is especially interesting since its interior burial chambers are open for inspection by the public.

Not far from the Pyramids is the Great Sphinx of Giza, which dates from the time of Chephren (2620BC). Hewn from natural yellowish limestone & standing 65 feet high & 187 feet long, this unforgettable statue combines the head of a Pharaoh with a lion’s body.
