Itinerary

 

Day 1 Morning departure for the journey to London and to Covent Garden where you will have some free time to explore this wonderful city. Shop, sightsee or visit one of the many museums, art galleries, take a boat trip or take a flight on the London Eye. The coach will then depart at approx. 17.30 hours and transfer you to the hotel for an overnight stay (dinner not included).

 

Day 2 After breakfast, you will depart from the hotel and travel to the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea for the Tutankhamun Exhibition. Tutankhamun or ‘King Tut’ is probably the most well-known Egyptian pharaoh. Born in around 1342 BC, he was only nine years old when he became a pharaoh and just 18 when he died. However, his body was mummified and his golden coffin was buried surrounded by 5,000 priceless treasures. This tomb was found some 3,000 years later by British archaeologists in 1922, providing an intriguing insight into the life of the Egyptian King. In the largest Tutankhamun exhibition ever to tour, fascinating artefacts from the tomb will be in London one final time before they permanently go on display in the brand-new Grand Museum in Cairo. This is your chance to view over 150 stunning, authentic tomb objects, 60 of which are on display outside of Egypt for the first time. After your visit the coach will depart at 16.00 hours and commence the homeward journey.
