DAY 2 » Giza pyramids & the Egyptian Museum
See the Great Pyramids, and explore the many monuments of the Giza necropolis, including the Great Sphinx. The Giza plateau lies on the edge of the modern city of Cairo, and is famous for the three pyramids of Khufu, Khephren and Menkaure. Close to the pyramid of Khufu are the remains of his mortuary temple, three ruined Queen’s pyramids and dozens of tombs. A professional way runs from the pyramid of Khephren to a well-preserved valley temple made of granite. Next to this is the famous gigantic statue of the Great Sphinx. After a full visit to Giza and following lunch, drive to Cairo’s iconic Tahrir Square. Visit the Egyptian Museum where more than 120,000 artefacts are displayed in over 100 halls. That said it would literally take months to see everything!
With a private Egyptologist guide, however, it is possible to show you all the highlights, including the golden treasures from the tomb of Tutankhamen.
This day excursion does not include a visit to the inside of the Great Pyramid. If you want to visit it, please note that the number of visitors allowed to enter is limited to 150 in the morning and 150 in the afternoon.

The monuments include the Hanging Church and the eleventh-century Church of St Barbara, as well as the Coptic Museum, with its beautiful collection of mosaics, manuscripts, tapestries and Christian artwork. The ninth-century Ben Ezra Synagogue is the world’s oldest known synagogue, and served as a depository for old Hebrew manuscripts throughout the Middle Ages.
