Pick up from your hotel in Hurghada and transfer to the airport for flight to Cairo. Start your full day visiting the Pyramids at Giza, to explore the magnificent pyramids, where you’ll come face-to-face with the enigmatic Sphinx, then proceed to the Egyptian Museum of antiquities. On display is a rare collection of 5000 years of art the largest most precious collection of Egyptian art in the world. Over 250,000 genuine artifacts are presented, including an exhibit dedicated to the Tutankhamen collection of treasures, gold, and jewelry, as it was enclosed in his tomb for over 3,500 years before it was discovered in the 1920s when his tomb was excavated. Then visit the Citadel of Salah El Din The Citadel of the Mountain (Qal‘at al-Jabal) in Cairo is one of the major works of military architecture of the middle ages. Situated on a spur that was artificially cut out of the Muqattam Hills, the Citadel dominates the city of Cairo and turns its back to the rocky hills and the desert behind. Founded by Salah al-Din al-Ayyubi (Saladin) in 1176 AD, the Citadel was a sign of the coming of a new regime whose roots were foreign and tastes were military. For almost seven centuries (1206-1874 AD), it was the seat of government for the Ayyubids (1171-1250 AD), Mamluks (1250-1516 AD), Ottomans (1516-1798 AD), and the Muhammad ‘Ali Family (1798-1952 AD), as well as a real and symbolic barrier between the rulers and the ruled. During this long period, it was the stage upon which the history of Egypt was played out.Khan el Khalili market is still one of the more colourful and fun places to spend an evening and stock up on gifts for the family back home.The market spills out from the west of Midan El Hussien, the square that stretches between the two great mosques of Saiyidna Hussein and Al-Azhar. Generally speaking, certain products are restricted to specific areas or streets meaning that the bazaar is actually a collection of highly focused mini bazaars selling perfumes, or spices, or gold, or copper, or textiles. Lunch will be served during the tour at quality local restaurant.
