A tour that provides you with a heavy portion of history, archeology, adventure and fun.
This journey will take you to see one of the world’s most important collections of ancient artefacts, the Egyptian Museum takes pride of place in Downtown Cairo, on the north side of Midan Tahrir. Inside the great domed, oddly pinkish building, the glittering treasures of Tutankhamun and other great pharaohs lie alongside the grave goods, mummies, jewellery, eating bowls and toys of Egyptians whose names are lost to history.
In the afternoon, you will explore the last remaining wonder of the ancient world; for nearly 4000 years, the extraordinary shape, impeccable geometry and sheer bulk of the Giza Pyramids have invited the obvious questions: ‘How were we built, and why?’. Centuries of research have given us parts of the answer, with High End Journeys, you will get to know them all!

Discovered in a pit by the Great Pyramid in 1954, the entire boat was carefully reconstructed and placed in the museum you will see today.
