Cairo Tour from Sharm El Sheikh

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh in an air-conditioned coach in the early morning and take you to Sharm airport for your flight to Cairo, where you will be accompanied by your Egyptologist tour guide.

When you arrive in the amazing city of Cairo, your first stop will be the Great Pyramids of Giza.

Cairo Tour to the Great Pyramid of Giza

The oldest of the seven wonders of the ancient world and sadly the only one that still remains largely intact, the Pyramids of Giza are the very reason a lot of people come to Egypt, and seeing them close-up never disappoints.

Composed of over 2.3 million blocks of granite weighing 25 - 80 tonnes each and constructed over a 20 year period concluding around 2560BC, the pyramids of Cairo was the tallest man-made structure for over 3,800 years, to this day we still do not know for sure exactly these amazing structures were built, although there are many theories.

During the Cairo tour we will give you much more information on the amazing Pyramids of Giza, and any questions you may have will be gladly answered by your professional, friendly Egyptologist tour guide.

The Sphinx

After you have seen the pyramids of Cairo, your next stop will be the Sphinx. The Great Sphinx of Giza is a mythological creature, formed of a lions body and a human head.

Standing over 73metres long and 20metres high, the The Great Sphinx of Giza is the oldest known monumental sculpture, and is commonly believed to have been built by ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdom in the reign of the pharaoh Khafra.

During your tour of Cairo, you will find out how the nose of the Sphinx was broken off by Napoleon's soldiers, which can still be seen today. There are also theories of kings actually being buried inside the Sphinx!

Lunch on the Nile

Next up is a break for a delicious lunch on the Nile, a large buffet with foods to cater for all tastes and ages. This is a great opportunity to relax and take in the sights and smells of busstling Cairo before going to visit the world-renowned Museum of Egyptian Antiquities.

Museum of Egyptian Antiquities

Inside this huge, world-famous museum you'll find some of the most important treasures from Ancient Egypt civilisation anywhere in the world, from Pharaonic antiques to the treasure found in the tomb of Egypt's best known King, Tutankhamen.

Spanning two floors, each section of the museum is dedicated to specific Kings, or time periods, even if you're not usually particularity into Egyptian history we find everybody finds it fascinating and a powerful experience to be so close to such historically important artefacts.

Built in neo-classical style, designed by the French architect Marcel Dourgnon the museum exceed 120,000 masterpieces ranges from pre-dynastic era, Pharaonic era to the Greco-roman period in Egypt and includes the treasures of the child King Tutankhamen, Pharaonic Gods and Goddess.

You can also visit the mummies room at the Egyptian Museum for a background about the Egyptian civilisation and the mummification art in ancient Egypt.

Shopping in the Bazaars of Cairo

After you have seen the pyramids, sphinx and other amazing sights that Cairo has to offer, you will have some free time for shopping in the world famous bazaars of Cairo - another big pull to tourists from all over the world.

Return to your Sharm Hotel

Then you will be transferred to Cairo domestic airport to fly back to Sharm El Sheikh with a transfer back to your hotel in Sharm.

Cairo Tour from Sharm - One Day Excursion by Plane
The day from start to finish was brilliant, we were picked up late night from the hotel to the bus stop where we were gave tickets and put on the bus by the taxi driver we had no problem with the coach there or back. When we arrived we met our tour guide will, he was on time and extremely welcoming ensuring we did not need anything, we then arrived a minute away from the bus stop at Cairo Museum where we we’re shown in detail some main artefacts and will the gave us time to explore by ourself we where them picked up by our Car for the day, we then drove to a littleboat stop which picked us up for a nice ride to see Cairo from the nile which was great. It was lunch time after and will took us to a lovely local restaurant where there food was great! We then moved on to the pyramids which were amazing to see will have us a good tour round and told us about them answering all our questions. There was so many photo opportunities and nothing was rushed we then made our way back to the car to get to the station, will was fantastic he was extremely kind and knew his stuff , we really enjoyed meeting him and we couldn’t recommend him more as a guide we felt safe like friends and at home and the trip was amazing. Thanks so much sharm excursions and will!!

Cairo Tour from Sharm - One Day Excursion by Plane
My sister and I did the 1 day trip to Cairo from where we were staying in Sharm.
This is really is an amazing value for the money, and is a must for those who want to see the major highlights of Egypt, while not having to stay in the city of Cairo.
You are never pressured to purchase anything extra if you do not wish. That being said, you are on vacation and if you can afford it, do some of the extras. Like riding a camel! The photo op you get is worth every penny.
The service really is completely door to door as they advertise.

Our tour guide for the day was the fabulous Lily! She was front and center waiting for us after we made our way from the plane.
We had a nice air conditioned van as our transportation for the day.

Lily was full of pep and enthusiasm to share her knowledge and culture with us. When we expressed that we enjoyed eating Arab foods, Lily made a special stop so we could try local Egyptian falafel and kushari. They were both amazing.

I highly recommend her as your tour guide. She is an actual Egyptologist and speaks several languages to facilitate many different tourists. For us, our native language is English and Lily was a top notch speaker.
We spent the entire day laughing and learning with her, and really have an amazing culture exchange.

I would definitely use this company again and request Lily as my guide.

Cairo tour from sharm is a must to do with this company and with her knowledgeable guide Willy. we had a lovely private tour, the museum was WOW, the info given and explained by our guide were great. i may say that i learned a lot about the pharaohs and their culture. we really enjoyed the process of making "baradi paper", and the experience of the oil essence factory was also interesting. The pyramids were a blast, every minute was worth it, our guide knew exactly where to take us, to stop to take picture.... Thank you Willy for such memorable day.

Cairo Tour from Sharm - One Day Excursion by Plane
Have been to cario twice now. First time was via coach which is cheaper however is at least 6+hours each way and when you arrive you don't enjoy it as much.

This time we took the plane and was definitely worth it as you enjoy the pyramid without being so tired.

Our tour guide was amazing. We had recommendations and we requested for Lily while booking and they delivered. We was so happy to have Lily as she was so helpful and knowledgeable.

She kept and made you feel safe so don't be worried about going to cario. I would 100% recommend anyone who wishes to book this to request for Lily. You will not be disappointed at all.

Cairo Tour from Sharm - One Day Excursion by Plane
Myself and My daughter had always wanted to go to Egypt to see the usual stuff Pyramids, Valley of the King etc. We only stayed in Egypt for 7 days, we could have stayed longer. We decided to book with Sharm Excursions recommended by one of Natalie's friends. So as the saying goes "when in Rome", we took full advantage for the special offer and booked 4 excursions in the 'buy 3 get 1 free' offer. Our first being the Cairo tour from Sharm 1 day by plane.

We were picked up from our hotel at 5.00am in a mini bus and taken to the airport. We had free drinks and biscuits on the plane, there was some cracking views of mountains and desert on our way to Cairo. When we landed, we met out tour guide Mohammed, he was a very nice smart gentleman and his knowledge of Cairo Museum and Tutankhamen was amazing. Our group really got to know each other during the day and together with Mohammed we felt like a little family.

We had a ride in a boat down the Nile to a restaurant for lunch. We didn't have to go as this was optional and did cost a little extra but we all agreed it would be a great way to go have lunch, which was a riverside restaurant anyway. Lunch was good, but I was hoping for some authentic Egyptian cooking. We then went to see the Pyramids in Giza, this was fantastic :). We had a choice of a camel ride or a horse drawn buggy to go and take some fantastic photo's of all 9 Pyramids. Natalie and I had always want to ride a camel and although we booked to do the camel ride and star gazing, we opted for the camel, again this cost a little extra, but our camel handler was so good at taking some spectacular photo's we didn't mind and gave him a tip too :). It was a short drive then to see the Sphinx and have a general wander around.

From there it was on to a perfume shop where we were told about perfume oils and which ones were used for any perfume and aftershave you could mention, even up to date perfumes he had an oil that smelt exactly the same. It was a quick stop then to the Papyrus shop where we were told how Papyrus paper was made and it's qualities, then we were given a chance to buy some if we wanted to.

After this we had to go back to the airport to get the plane back to Sharm.

I will never forget this trip, we made some good friends, saw some amazing sites and did nothing but smile the whole day, this is more than a 5* trip.

Love and best wishes to all in Sharm Excursions.

Marie & Natalie from England - 15th Nov 2015
Cairo Tour from Sharm - One Day Excursion by Plane
Most people have a visit to the pyramids in their bucket list as something to do within their lifetime. My wife and I are no exception and booked the trip with this company on the internet before getting to Sharm. We are very pleased we did so. The day was absolutely outstanding and worth every single penny.

We were collected from our hotel and taken to the airport by private car. We were met by a company member who made sure we got onto the plane and that we knew exactly what to do on our arrival in Cairo. At Cairo airport we were met by a bubbly young lady called Lily who had a smile on her face as wide as the Nile. She was an Egyptologist who held a master’s degree in the subject and her knowledge was faultless. We were shown to a large chauffer driven leather upholstered vehicle which was for our sole use. Wherever we went everyone knew Lily and it was obvious that she was well respected and loved by all. We had a personal tour of the Museum which is that vast you would need days to see it all, every question we put to Lily received an immediate and knowledgeable answer. We did the papyrus bit where you are shown how it is made and then they try to sell paintings. We had a private boat for a trip us the Nile and a meal in a restaurant alongside it. After lunch we went to see the pyramids and the sphinx which were absolutely beautiful and awe inspiring. We travelled by cart into the desert to get above and behind the pyramids in order to take scenic photographs. We later went to a Bedouin house to sample the perfumes. We finished the day sat in a restaurant having a drink and watching the pyramids and the sphinx. This is a long day but you could not wish for a better day out or better company. The smile never left Lily’s face all day and I think she enjoyed the day nearly as much as we did. At the end of the day Lily and my wife had a cuddle before we parted. If anyone is thinking about doing this trip, then do it and ask for Lily to be with you.

There were a couple of little worries that I had and think are worth mentioning. The first was having paid my deposit by PayPal I was a little concerned that I was to pay the remainder in cash outside the hotel. I later learned that because of the security in the resort no-one was allowed on the hotel grounds unless they were residents. My other concern was that on arrival in the resort the rep told us all that under no circumstances should we book with agencies other than themselves because they were the only ones who had correct insurance and that the other agencies were not to be trusted. That was an absolute lie and I intend doing a review on the hotel site telling them so. The cost of my trip to Cairo with this company was less than the cost of the one the rep was recommending, and his trip involved being with a group party all day and not the personal attention we received. Had we wanted a group day and be with ten or twelve other people I could have got that through this company and the cost would have considerably less.

I have got to 65 years of age and this is the first review I have ever done. Because of what I was told by the rep I feel that I need to redress those lies and stop others getting ripped off by the holiday reps.

This trip will be a long lasting memory that will always be with us and I thank the company and particularly Lily for making it such a splendid day. I strongly recommend this trip to Cairo to anyone and that you use this company. Do not get ripped off by the holiday reps and ignore their scaremongering. Definitely go for the personal guide option. it might cost a little more but it is well worth it.
