In the beginning of the tour we will visit a very big touristic spot where you will spend almost 2 hours – The National Egyptian Museum which is situated at Tahrir square.

Kindly note that drinks are not included in the cost of your lunch, so if you want to order something refreshing there will be an extra charge.
After lunch we will cross the Nile and move to Giza Plateau to explore the area and to discover one of the seven wonders of the ancient world The great pyramid of Cheops!

We went to Cairo By Air with Sharm Club and had one of the best days of our lives… We wanted to celebrate our special wedding anniversary, we took the Sharm Club private trip from Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo by air. We booked the trip before we left the UK through the Sharm Club website, we thought the price very good - a lot cheaper than through the First Choice. We paid just a small deposit on line and then the balance on the day itself. On arrival at our hotel in Sharm, we texted our room number as requested on our booking receipt, and soon afterwards received telephone confirmation of our pick up time for our Cairo trip. We were collected from our hotel on the morning of our trip by Mohammed, who was both welcoming and courteous. He took us to the airport and saw us through check-in before waving us off on what was to be - not just the highlight of our Egyptian holiday - but one of the best days of our lives. We flew Egypt Air by business class and enjoyed our in-flight breakfast while gazing down in fascination at the vast Sinai Desert below us. After touching down at Cairo, we were met by our guide, Sherif, who turned out to be not only an expert Egyptologist but a really nice person whose company we enjoyed throughout the day. We were driven through the chaos of the Cairo traffic competently and safely to our first scheduled stop at the Cairo Museum. We stayed in the museum all morning and until 1.30pm – seeing all the main masterpieces while Sherif told us of their history with great enthusiasm and expertise. We also saw the Mummy Room, at a small extra charge, which we would highly recommend. Absolutely fascinating. After lunch at the Hard Rock café and an hour relaxing on the Nile in a traditional Farouk sailing boat, we headed across the city from the east side to the west, where we spent the next few hours at the Pyramids and the Sphinx. I don’t know how many hours exactly, as the whole afternoon had a timeless quality about it. We saw ancient Egyptian artefacts with our own eyes, touched the stones of the great pyramids, climbed into the narrow passages that led into the burial chambers, and saw the amazingly well-preserved hieroglyphics on the walls of all the tombs. I felt quite emotional during the time we were there. My husband said he felt the same. It was a mix of excitement, the realisation of a lifetime ambition, and the spiritual feel of the place. All day long, the wonderful Sherif guided us and took photographs with our camera. Now our photo album is packed with fabulous photos of the two of us at these amazing sites. Thank you Sherif! We finished off our day with a visit to the papyrus museum, where we saw how ancient scrolls were made. We bought some papyrus paper with Egyptian artwork and hieroglyphics hand painted onto them as souvenirs. We headed happily back to the airport for our evening flight home. This was to be the only glitch of the day – as the flight was overbooked and one of our seats turned out to be a standby booking only. As you can imagine, this caused us a moment of concern - but it seems that domestic flights in Egypt (the same as anywhere else in the world, I suppose) are commonly overbooked and standby tickets sold. On this occasion, we didn’t have a problem as we did both get on the flight, but I would recommend asking Sharm Club to book you only confirmed seats and not standby seats for your trip in order to avoid any potential airline delays. To summarise, we had a truly FANTASTIC day thanks to our wonderful and knowledgeable Cairo guide Sharif, and to Sharm Club, whom I can recommend to you for your Egyptian excursions without reservation. I would also highly recommend taking the private VIP tour - as you get personal attention and to spend as long as you need at each place without being rushed. The whole day was everything and more than we had ever dreamed. Thank you Sharif, Mohammed, and Sharm Club!
