Cairo Excursion from Hurghada is a day trip to see the attractions of Cairo and Giza from Hurghada, Egypt! We recommend the excursion because it allows tourists to see the most impressive sights constructed in Ancient Egypt. Additionally, it will enable tourists to learn more about the country’s history. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most popular Hurghada tours of the pyramids! The Pyramids are tombs for Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs, their kings and queens. The pharaohs were mummified and buried inside the pyramids with many treasures to ensure the pharaoh had a good life in the afterlife. The pyramids were also built to keep robbers away from the gold and offerings the pharaohs buried with.

Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum is the oldest archaeological museum in Egypt and the Middle East. It exhibits an extensive collection from the Predynastic Period to the Greco-Roman Period. In addition, this repository houses the most comprehensive collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world. This fantastic collection traces 5,000 years of Egyptian history.

Giza Pyramid Complex

The Giza pyramid complex, also known as the Giza necropolis, is a collection of ancient structures located in Egypt. It includes the Great Pyramid, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure, their associated complexes and the Great Sphinx. These structures were constructed during the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt, between 2600 and 2500 BC. The Complex also includes various temples, cemeteries, and remnants of a workers’ village.

The Giza pyramid complex lies on the outskirts of the Western Desert, approximately 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) to the west of the Nile River in the city of Giza. It is about 13 kilometres (8 mi) southwest of the city centre of Cairo. This complex forms the northernmost portion of the 16,000-hectare (40,000-acre) Pyramid Fields of Memphis and its Necropolis UNESCO World Heritage Site, inscribed in 1979.

The Pyramid Fields comprise the Abusir, Saqqara, and Dahshur pyramid complexes, constructed near Egypt’s ancient capital, Memphis. Other Old Kingdom pyramid fields were at Abu Rawash, Zawyet El Aryan, and Meidum.

The Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of Khafre are the most giant pyramids ever built in ancient Egypt, and they have been widely used as symbols of Ancient Egypt in the Western imagination. They were trendy during Hellenistic times when Antipater of Sidon listed the Great Pyramid as one of the World’s Seven Wonders. It is also the oldest of the Ancient Wonders and the only one still in existence.

Menkaure Pyramid

Menkaure is the third Pyramid in the Giza Pyramid complex in Greater Cairo, Egypt. Smallest of the three, this beautiful structure rises to 66 metres (218 feet). Menkaure Pyramid houses some of the most stunning sculptures from Ancient Egyptian history despite being short.

  1. Rania Khalid

    We, husband and wife, booked a private day tour from Hurghada to Cairo, which we enjoyed. I would recommend this company to anyone. They were very professional and provided an excellent service. Booking was easy. From the initial enquiry, everything ran like clockwork. All emails were answered very quickly for you. The driver arrived at the designated time in a new, air-conditioned and comfortable car. He was delightful, knowledgeable and, most importantly, a safe driver. In Cairo, we had an Egyptologist guide who was excellent in every way and ensured that we had a wonderful day. Nothing was too much trouble, and he managed to ensure it was informative, relaxing and personal. Although this was a very long day, we found it manageable and booked again with Landious Travel.

    The best trip that I need to mention is the trip to the fantastic One wonder of the world! The journey to the famous Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. I know for sure that no one will miss this. Why should you? It is an experience of a lifetime. Then we have the next most wanted trip on the cards. A visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. These two are on the high priority list of all tourists visiting this country. I was left in awe of the same. How could people from those days have such accurate knowledge of engineering? The Pyramids remain a silent proof of the same. The perfect triangular shape of the Pyramids and the layered way they were built are yet to be discovered to date. The next must-see part of this trip is to the Egyptian Museum. Going there unfolds The Egyptian Civilization in front of you. In my history lessons back in school, I had read about the Egyptian Civilization being the oldest of all. And that is exactly what I behold here in the Museum. On this trip will be included a buffet lunch at a restaurant beside the Nile. All tickets to visit these places will be provided and a professional guide as well. The day will end with transfers back to the respective hotels in Cairo. One essential piece of information that is a mandate for this trip will be your Passport. That will be conveyed to you the day before you decide to embark on this trip. I will also suggest another attractive feature of this trip—the abundance of time and place to take pictures and be photographed. You can either take photos on your own or request your guide to do the same for you. Trust me! This is a photographer’s paradise. Hence recommended widely!!! See you there.
