This tour combines time relaxing by the Red Sea near the resort town of Hurghada, with a short tour of Cairo's main highlights, including the awe inspiring Pyramids at Gisa, and the Egyptian Museum. Read more
We greet you at Cairo airport and transfer you to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to settle into the hotel and relax after your journey.
We leave Cairo early this morning for the drive down the Red Sea coast to the popular resort of Hurghada. The journey takes around 7 hours, and upgrades to internal flights are available on request.
Your time by the Red Sea is free, and you can just relax in your resort on the beach or by the pool, or take one of the many optional activities available locally. These include snorkeling and scuba diving boat trips, glass bottomed boat trips, quad biking and much more. The old town of Hurghada and the marina are also worth exploring one day (many resorts arrange free shuttle bus transfers, or you can take a taxi very cheaply).
We depart Hurghada this morning and arrive back in Cairo in the afternoon where the rest of the day is free for you to do some shopping or sightseeing. Options to enjoy a dinner cruise on the Nile, or see the spectacular sound and light show at the pyramids are available locally. You can also upgrade the drive back to Cairo to a short internal flight if you prefer.
You can't visit Cairo and not see the pyramids, so today we do a full day guided tour of the pyramids and Sphinx at Gisa before visiting the Egyptian Museum in Cairo to see the famous Tutankhamun exhibit.
Your time is free in Cairo today until we transfer you to the airport for your flight home. Extra nights in Cairo are available if you would like to extend the tour.
We use a range of carefully selected hotels on our tours. If you have specific requests for hotels, please don't hesitate to ask.
"Thanks for organising such a great trip for us! We all had an amazing time and it really opened our eyes to the country, both ancient and modern. Our guide, Emad Hussain was wonderful – very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and willing to put up with four archaeologists (including one Egyptologist) for the 12 days. I’m just downloading my 1200-odd photos now..."
