Immediately following breakfast you will join your guide and your driver for a full day of sight seeing.
Start your day with the only remaining one of the original seven wonders of the ancient world, the famous Giza Plateau. Here you will see the Great Pyramid of Khufu, which the ancient Greeks called Cheops. In addition to Cheops you will be able to visit the pyramids of Khafre (Chephren) and Menkaure (Mykerinos). Another fabulous, albeit mysterious structure on the Plateau is the world renowned Sphinx.
Next stop on your tour is the Egyptian Museum at Cairo. Designed by French architect Marcel Dourgnon, the museum was built in the neo-classical style. Inside the museum you can browse over 120,000 artifacts from various time periods including pre-dynastic era clear up through the Greco-Roman era. Enjoy the only surviving image of Khufu who was the creator of Egypt’s Great Pyramid. Also inside is the funerary treasure of King Tut, statues of king Akhenaten (heretic king) and much more! If you have ever been curious about ancient Egyptian culture the museum is a great place to start! Many people particularly enjoy learning about the art of mummification.
Your next stop will be Coptic Cairo to visit the Hanging Church. The inspiration for the name of this Basilica church stems from its location on top of the south gate of the Fortress of Babylon. Wrap up your day tour with a visit to the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar located in the Islamic district of Cairo. This is a major souk and one of the main attractions in Cairo. Finally, head back to the hotel for your overnight stay in Cairo.
