Tour Schedule: Full-Day Cairo Excursion from Makadi Bay
You will take a bus to Cairo in the morning from your accommodation in Makadi Bay, where you will meet your private tour guide who will lead you through all the amazing treasures of the ancient Egyptian civilization beginning with:
Giza Pyramids Complex
The great Giza Pyramids complex has been able to stand strong for more than 4000 years, keeping the big Giza Pyramids, the valley temple, and the Sphinx in an untouched form. However, nothing can stand in front of the power of time.
The Great Pyramid
The Pyramid of Pharaoh Khufu is a massive royal tomb that was built in 2580 BC in 20 years to reach a height of 147 m (481 ft). It also has a beautiful complex interior structure made of 2,300,000 limestone bricks and 100,000 free laborers, all of which contributed to the Great Pyramid remaining the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World that is still intact.
The Great Sphinx
An enormous ancient monument that guards the King Khafre Pyramid complex stands in front of it. It is shaped like a legendary animal with a human face and a lion’s body, and it is 73 meters (240 feet) tall and 19 meters (66 feet) broad.
The Valley Temple
Since the time of the Old Kingdom of Egypt (2686 – 2134 BC), when the Valley Temple, one of the most complete and preserved buildings in Egypt, was built, the mummification technique was how the ancient Egyptians kept their names alive throughout all of the time.
Following lunch at a restaurant with a view of the Pyramids or the Nile, you will continue your Cairo tour in one day from Makadi Bay with a special visit to:
The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum, which has more than 150,000 pieces of golden and wooden items, including sculptures going back more than 3500 years, is located in the center of Cairo. The Tutankhamun treasures are among the most popular landmarks.
Finally, you’ll go to your destination:
Market in Khan El Khalili
Shopping along the Middle East’s “golden brick road” in the hypnotic light of Islamic Egypt is a unique experience. Since 970 AD, this bustling bazaar has offered all visitors the opportunity to see magnificent specimens of Islamic architecture in addition to miraculous products.
After that, you’ll go to the bus terminal and take a bus back to your accommodation in Makadi Bay to round off your full-day bus tour of Cairo. Note: You always have the opportunity to contact our tour guides and request any kind of changes to your schedule.
