Day trip to the pyramids

What’s great about Hurghada holidays is that you’re surrounded by golden sandy beaches; excellent bars, restaurants and shops; and some of the best marine life in the world. But it also serves as an ideal location to base yourself in order to see all the other incredible places that you can explore whilst on holiday on the beautiful Red Sea Riviera.

A holiday to Egypt wouldn’t be complete without making the journey to Cairo to experience the last remaining wonder of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid of Giza. But that’s not all that Cairo has to offer. There are a number of other pyramids to see as well as the famous Great Sphinx with its missing nose. But something else that is absolutely well worth a few hours of your time is the fascinating Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square. The museum houses 120,000 Egyptian artefacts, including the treasure and gold mask of King Tutankhamun.

You can book excursions to Cairo through your Thomas Cook rep and you can choose to travel either by coach, plane or private car.
