The story of Tutankhamun, often referred to as King Tut, and the discovery of his tomb is one of the most famous and significant archaeological discoveries in history.

Tutankhamun became Pharaoh of Egypt around 1332 BCE, at a young age, and ruled during the 18th Dynasty of the New Kingdom. He is known for his relatively short reign and his efforts to restore traditional Egyptian religious practices after his predecessor Akhenaten’s monotheistic reforms.

The story of the discovery of his tomb begins in 1922, when British archaeologist Howard Carter and his team uncovered the entrance to a previously undisturbed tomb in the Valley of the Kings, near Luxor, Egypt. Diese Tomb turned out to be that of King Tutankhamun. The tomb was filled with a treasure trove of artifacts, including jewelry, furniture, chariots, and statues, as well as the famous golden burial mask of the young pharaoh.

Cairo, being a vibrant and bustling city with a multitude of attractions and activities, doesn't have specific visiting hours like a tourist site might. However, there are certain considerations to keep in mind when planning your exploration of Cairo:

  •    Tourist Sites: Most tourist sites in Cairo, such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum, and historic landmarks, typically have specific opening hours. These attractions usually open early in the morning, around 8 or 9 AM, and close in the late afternoon, around 4 or 5 PM.
  •    Shopping and Markets: Markets and shopping areas in Cairo, such as Khan El Khalili, often operate late into the evening, sometimes even until midnight. They're lively and bustling, offering a unique experience after regular tourist sites have closed.
  • Restaurants and Cafés: Restaurants and eateries in Cairo usually open for lunch around noon and stay open until late at night, offering dinner service until 10 PM or later. Some cafes and eateries might have extended hours, especially in bustling areas or near tourist sites.

Transporting heavy stones to build the pyramids was among the biggest challenges facing the ancient Egyptians, and they used several innovative methods to achieve this:

  •      Drag and pull.
  •      Wet asphalt.
  •      Wooden slides.
  •      Human cranes.
  •      River transport.

The duration of daily tours in Cairo may vary greatly depending on the type of tour and the places visited, and it usually ranges from half a day to a full day. Here are some examples:

Half-day tours: usually last for 4 to 6 hours. It may include a visit to a specific tourist site such as the pyramids or a specific museum.

Full-Day Tours: Typically cover a period of 8 to 10 hours or more. It includes a visit to several tourist places and various activities, such as the pyramids, museums, and traditional markets.

Customized and luxury tours: They may extend for several days, as many activities and visits to multiple places are included in a longer duration, with the possibility of providing additional services such as luxury accommodation and special meals.

The length of the tour and the layover period depend on several factors, including the distance between the landmarks you want to visit, the type of tour you choose, and the extent of interaction you wish to have with the landmarks.

For example, if you plan to visit the Pyramids and Saqqara in one day, you may need a full day, especially if you plan to explore the sites in detail and enjoy a comprehensive experience. If the tour includes more attractions or additional activities, the time required may be more.

Yes, it's recommended to book your Cairo stopover transit tour in advance, especially during peak travel seasons, to secure your spot and avoid last-minute availability issues.

The time you allocate for your Cairo stopover tour will depend on the duration of your layover and the activities you wish to do. If your layover is several hours, you can consider a short tour to visit a specific site, such as the Giza Pyramids or the Egyptian Museum. If you have a longer layover, you can explore multiple sites, such as visiting the Giza Pyramids, the Sphinx, and taking a Nile River cruise. It's important to factor in transportation time to and from the airport and allow sufficient time for security and immigration procedures.
