Tour description provided by Viator

Travel to Cairo from Hurghada on a private tour to make the most of your time in this world-famous city. You'll visit Cairo's most famous sites including the Great Pyramids and Sphinx, Egyptian Museum and Khan el-Khalili bazaar. As this is a private tour, you can determine the amount of time you'd like to spend at each site.

Following your arrival in Cairo, your Egyptologist private guide will introduce you to the history of the pyramids. You will have time to enter one of the pyramids (additional cost), but your guide is not permitted to escort you. A short drive across the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the enigmatic Sphinx. Also in Giza you may visit the Solar Boat Museum (optional), home to the remarkably well preserved funerary boat of Khufu. Cairo's famous Egyptian Museum houses 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, but the priceless treasures of King Tutankhamun are the highlight. His six gilded coffins dominate the main hall, while his magnificent death mask is the star attraction. Continuing to Khan el Khalili bazaar, you'll enjoy free time to stroll through the maze of streets and bargain for a souvenir of your trip. You will also have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how the famous artwork is made before driving back to Hurghada.
