Our Tour
Upon arrival to Cairo airport, Our Egypt Select Tours tour guide will be waiting you for you holding a sign with your name and will transfer you to visit Giza Plateau to visit the impressive 3 Pyramids of Kings Cheops, Chephren, and Menkaure which are guarded by the rock-cut statue (The Sphinx). The Great Pyramid of King Cheops is the only wonder of the seven wonders of the ancient world that is still standing today, although it is 2,000 years older than any other wonder on the list. Then stop for lunch by one of the local restaurants with Nile river view. Then, you are going to continue your journey through the history starting with the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities which was built in 1902 and it exhibits a large number of items and treasures (exceeding 120,000 masterpieces) dating back to the ancient Egyptian period and Greco-Roman period including the marvelous collection of the child king Tut Ankh Amon. Then moving to "Islamic Cairo" and taking a walking tour in the 1000 years old "el Moez" street which is considered as an open air museum for Terrific Islamic Buildings which are decorated with different patterns and paints, then ending our tour with going to Khan el Khalili Bazaar which is one of Cairo's main attractions. The district of Khan el Khalili was originally a mausoleum called "el Zaafran" for the burial of Fatimid Caliphs, after that it became a district for the Turkish community during the Ottoman period, and now it becomes a bazaar where you will find many souvenirs shops, coffeehouses "Café" serving Arabic coffee and offering Hookah "Shisha", and restaurants throughout the area. After this trip you will be transferred back to the airport to catch your flight.
