In an attempt to promote tourism and support foreigners’ visits to Egypt, American movie star Will Smith arrived to Egypt on Sunday morning with his family for a short visit, according to a statement published by the Ministry of Antiquities’ official Facebook page.

The celebrity landed in Cairo early morning, where he had breakfast at the pyramids with renowned archaeologist Zahi Hawas, before taking a two-hour tour of the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza. Hawas and Smith met before dawn and got to witness the sunrise above the pyramids.

With nine of his family members, Smith listened to Hawas telling him about the secrets of the pyramids and the hidden legacy which is still being discovered step by step.

The tour included members of the Ministry of Antiquities, including Ashraf Mohy El-Den, director-general of the Giza Plateau, who described Smith’s amazement while exploring the area.
