Egypt. The land of the ancients. One of the early great civilizations of the world. There's just so much history to see and breathe here. Every nook, every cranny presents something new, the atmosphere rich with antiquity. A trip to this beautiful land is sure to leave you mesmerized and speechless, presenting a journey like no other. This private day excursion takes you to some of the key highlights around Cairo, one of the most happening cities in the country. Of course, pyramids are included!!

Pick Up
We will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo, Giza or Cairo International Airport then drive the downtown of Cairo where is The Egyptian Museum.

Visit the Egyptian Museum
You will start the tour by visiting the world- famous Egyptian Museum. The museum, spanning two floors, houses a vast 120,000 masterpieces from different eras and periods in Egyptian history. The most popular exhibits are that of treasures relating to the Pharaonic kings and queens, such as the child king Tutankhamen and the room of mummies. In the latter, visitors can learn more about mummification art in ancient Egypt.

Discover the Nile by Felucca " Optional "
After your visit to the Egyptian museum, you will have the chance to relax and float on a Felucca (small motor boat) on a trip along the longest river in the world. Here you can take time to absorb the panoramic views of the city in the summer breeze.

Stop for Lunch
Next we will take a break to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch in a restaurant with wonderful views of the Nile. Drinks are not included.

Visit Pyramids & Sphinx
After lunch, we will cross the Nile and travel to Giza to the ancient pyramids, constructed in around 2560 BC. Renowned as one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world, it will be hard not to stare in amazement on your arrival at the pyramids and ask: ‘How were they built? And why?’ Don’t worry – all of our guides are qualified Egyptologists and will be happy to guide you and answer all of your questions. There will be the option at this point in the tour to go inside one of the three ancient pyramids.

After that we will walk down to the edge of the plateau to King Kafra Valley where you can take your first glimpse of the Great Sphinx and its temple. The Great Sphinx of Giza is a mythological creature, formed of a human head and the body of a lion which standing at over 20 meters high 73 metres long is a magnificent sight to behold.

Shopping
Our final stop of about one hour will be for shopping. Here you will have the chance to buy authentic and traditional Egyptian souvenirs and gifts produced by local craftspeople. We will spend time at the Papyrus Institute, where you will be given a demonstration on how this famous paper is made and where you will also have the chance to purchase papyrus art. We will also visit a perfume shop, where you can shop for Arabian scents and beautifully decorated perfume bottles.

Drive Back
At the end of the day our guide will transfer you back to your hotel or to the airport to catch your flight.

“Our pick up from the hotel was at 5:15am. Our (private) driver was on time & very friendly. You have to remember that the driving in Egypt is far from similar to European standards. You just have to trust the driver & that is exactly what we did.
The drive to Luxor takes roughly 4hrs. With one rest stop.
Our guide was ready to meet us when we arrived in Luxor, Karnak Temple. We were one of the first few people at the temple in the morning. Not a lot of people. Our guide was very informative, telling us about the temple and it’s little details. Followed by free time to roam & take pictures.
We discussed our preferences with our tour guide about what we would like to see & didn’t want to see. Sure he will ask you a few times if your sure on opting out on anything (like the boat ride on the Nile), but he will respect your decision.
At the restaurant there was a nice selection of salads, chicken/meat & cooked vegetables. As well as desserts. The food is included in the price, however the drinks are not. A soda costs roughly 30 Egyptian Pounds. There’s bathrooms to freshen up in too.
Our next stop was Valley of the Kings. You’re not allowed to take pictures outside. There are many signs. I advise you follow them. You’re given a ticket & you’ll be able to visit 3 tombs. Such a breathtaking experience. Detailed & colorful hieroglyphics spread across every surface.
Hatshepsut temple was our final stop. A beautiful temple cascaded by mountains. Sadly most of it is restored however, still a beautiful sight.
We opted out on seeing the papyrus & albatros stores. Since we only wanted to see the ancient sites & not go shopping.
Don’t forget to tip your tour guide & driver after the trip!”

“I can’t wait to come back and see more with you!

We booked the private Hurghada to Luxor tour, when I saw the pick up time I was dreading it (5 am)... However, the quality of the vehicle and the driver quickly started to make my fears and apprehension dissolve.

Upon our arrival we met our tour guide, Mido who was so knowledgeable and friendly we had an amazing time. From the onset Mido was friendly and approachable- no question was a stupid question and he had the answers at his fingertips.

I wanted to buy some gifts for family and friends and Mido and the driver fitted in the time during the tour to do this.

The buffet lunch on the banks of the Nile was good too- lovely baklava!

I can’t recommend this tour enough- despite not experiencing the other guides I can highly recommend asking for Mido as I couldn’t fault him!

Definitely pay the extra for the Tomb of the Golden Boy King (Tutankhamun)!

Outstanding value compared to Thomas Cook prices for same tour (£80 cheaper for both of us and a personal guide)

I would recommend Sharm Wonders and would use them again when visiting Egypt”
