Day 1 (Giza, Old Cairo)
Your magical day starts approximately by 7:30AM where you will be collected from your hotel.
Will drive you towards Giza to visit the greatest of all Egypt sites and probably the number one reason for anyone to visit Egypt – the Great Pyramids at Giza Plateau.
The Great Pyramid is the largest of the three and it is quite an intimidating feeling to stand at the foot of this enormous structure and one of the World Seven Wonders. If time allows, you may enter the second Pyramid to view the inside of this structure (optional).
After exploring the area of the two larger Pyramids, you will drive towards the largest house of monuments in Egypt; the one holding more than 250’000 piece of Antiquates , most widespread collection of pharaonic ages “The Egyptian Museum”.
Lunch will be served at a fine local restaurant where you will be able to try "Tasty Egyptian Food".
That's not for today ... an included visit to the Oldest Market in Egypt "Khan El Khalili Bazaar", where you be taken deep into oriental Egypt with its unique smell, handmade crafts, tattoo or what we call in Arabic "Henna", tent makers or as well known in Arabic as "Khyamya" with colorful , Turn your camera on ! There is a lot to see & catch… A perfect ending to a very packed day in Cairo. The day ends at approximately 9:30PM when you will be transferred back to your hotel in Cairo.
The adventure started when our tour guide and the driver picked us up at home in the morning and took us to Sakkara and the Great Pyramids. All details were considered: car with an AC, punctuality and street food, yet what amused me the most was the guide's expertise and knowledge.
Lady Egypt does not provide only guides, but very well educated egyptologists with an advanced english level and passion. He was able to deduce when we were hungry or tired, when we needed breaks or extra time at Khan el Khalili bazaar. Very flexible, understanding and an amazing character! Thank you Mohamed Maghraby :D
If you are looking for a remarkable experience, I highly recommend Lady Egypt Tours.
