We will pick up from your hotel around 4am, depending on your location. and transfer you to Sharm el Sheikh airport for your 1 hour flight to Cairo. On arrival at Cairo airport your guide will be waiting for you just outside the terminal building and will be holding the Eagles sign so that he is easily identifiable to you.

Your first stop will be to the Museum of Egyptian Antuquities. Here you will have a guided tour for around 2 hours and you will learn all there is to know about Ancient Egypt. The mesuem consists of 2 floors and houses thousands of artefacts.

Next, you can take an optional boat trip across the Nile (£15 per person) before enjoying a delicious buffet lunch at a local restaurant near to the Nile river. After this, we visit the papyrus museum to see how papyrus was made by the Ancient Egyptians and how they used it for writing. You will have some free time here to shop also.

Now its time for the highlight of the day - The Great Pyramids of Giza. Here your guide will show you around and give you the history of the 3 pyramids, after this you will have time to explore by yourself. If you wish, you can also take a camel ride or a horse and carriage ride around the Pyramids (this is payable locally and you can ask your guide to help you haggle a good price). You will have a couple of hours here.

Then its time to move on the the Sphinx - it is a limestone statue of a reclining Sphinx, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human.

Final stop of the day is to the perfume factory where you can see how the Ancient Egyptians mixed oils to make some amazing fragrances. You will have time to explore here and shop before heading back to Cairo airport for your flight to Sharm el Sheikh.
