Cairo is just a one hour flight from Sharm el Sheikh. Upon arrival, your guide will take you to visit the Egyptian Museum where you can admire the treasures of the famous Tutankhamun, the royal mummy of whom is still resting in his tomb in Luxor.|
Then it is lunch time. Lunch will take place at one of the popular restaurants in Cairo. Finally, the trip goes to The Pyramids. The excitement of your visit will be heightened as soon as you first glimpse the gigantic peaks of the distance on the western horizon. Cheops, Chepren and Mycerinus are right in front of you. You are witnessing the last of the seven wonders of the Ancient World.
Next to this amazing piece of architecture lays The Sphinx, which is a recumbent lion with the head of a man. The body of the lion, the symbol of kingship, represented "power", and the human head symbolized "intelligence". The Sphinx was carved from natural rock and if you look at the paws, they seem out of proportion with the rest of the body, but it is said that the Sphinx was meant to be viewed from the front at the bottom of the valley.
