    Stop At: Great Sphinx, Al-Haram, Giza Egypt

    Your Cairo tour starts with pick up from your hotel at 8:30am. The first stop will be to The Egyptian Museum, where you can observe Egyptian history through all different eras. You'll spend between 90 to 120 minutes here before moving on to the next stop, the Papyrus Institute. They were one of the first known paper manufacturing facilities, and in the ~20 minutes you'll be there you will see their process as well as hand drawings.

    You'll then move to Old Cairo, where for 45 minutes you'll be able to see the remaining parts of the Babylon fortress, as well as the Hanging Church, the Abu Sirgah Church, San George Church, and the Ben Ezra Synagogue. At this time, you'll have time for an optional 30-minute stop for lunch upon your request (at customer's expense).

    Next, you'll travel to the Pyramids of Giza, housing the 3 world-renowned Pyramids Of King Cheops, the Pyramid Of King Chepheren, and the Pyramid of King Menkarus. You can also view the Solar boat (upon request) then to the glorious statue of The Sphinx. There is a horse or camel ride available through the area, but please note that it is an extra charge. Total duration of this stop will be between 60 and 90 minutes.

    After the pyramids, you'll have a ~20 minute visit to the Perfume Factory to have a brief look on the perfumes made almost 5000 years ago. At this point your tour will end, and you'll transfer back to your hotel or centrally located drop-off point around 5pm (depending on traffic).
