Cairo - two day tour by bus from Dahab (with a group)

Day 1:
The first day starts with a visit to the Egyptian Museum, which features artifacts from the Pharaonic period. The Museum displays a rare collection of 5000 years of art which is considered the largest and most precious collection of Egyptian art in the world. Over 250,000 genuine artifacts are presented including an exhibition dedicated to Tutankhamun and his collection of treasure, gold and jewelry which was enclosed in his tomb for over 3,500 years before it was discovered in the 1920s when his tomb was excavated.
This is followed by felucca trip on the Nile River (optional, but worth taking a relaxing one-hour trip on a traditional Egyptian sailing boat "a felucca"). This will give you a unique opportunity to view Cairo in a different light. After that time to fresh up and have lunch.
Afternoon visit to Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza .
Built 4600 years ago Khufu, the successor of Sneferu, was known as a tyrant and in his arrogance he decided to have a tomb built that was bigger and better than all others.
Cheops (Khufu) was the builder of the Great Pyramid during the IV dynasty. Chephren (Khafra), son of Cheops, was the builder of the second Pyramid, whilst the third was built by Mycrenios (Menkaura) son of Chephren.The mysterious Sphinx, with its mask of Chephren and body of a Lion, stands close by as a guard to the land of Pharaohs.
The Sphinx and the three Pyramids were considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Optional -a visit to a Papyrus Institute.
Free evening and overnight at your hotel.

Day 2:

After breakfast you will take a look at the Islamic areas of Cairo including the Citadel of Saladdin - boasting the famous Alabaster Mosque of Mohammed Ali.
Then onto the Coptic area of Cairo where the Romans constructed the fortress of Babylon, built over the ruins of two towers of the church of St. Mary or more commonly know as the Hanging Church, followed by St Sergius which is said to be the resting place for the Holy Family.
