Good morning Cairo. Breakfast will be ready at the hotel to prepare you for the day ahead. Today, you will have a full-day guided tour of the most iconic attractions near the capital.

A trip to Egypt really is not complete without an experience that takes you back in time and NMEC (The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization) is the perfect spot. This museum is structured to take you through the many eras and civilizations formed in the Egyptian nation like storytelling. Despite having fewer antiquities than the Egyptian Museum, the NMEC rose to fame after they did a Parade of the 22 Royal Mummies including Ramses II. After this, you will visit the three Pyramids of Giza namely Khufu (a.k.a. Cheops or The Great Pyramid), Khafre (Chefren), and Menkaure (Micerinos). Other highlights include The Great Sphinx of Giza (Eternal Sphynx). Overnight in Cairo.
