American movie star Steven Seagal and his wife visited the Giza pyramids after attending the conclusion of the third Gouna Film Festival.

This is the first time Seagal is visiting Egypt on a non-work trip. He previously travelled to Cairo for a film shoot.

"The tour started inside the archaeological area by visiting the Great Pyramid, where Seagal and his wife were keen to take photos," director of the pyramid Ashraf Mohieldin said.

"Seagal and his wife then went to the panorama area and the Sphinx area," stressing that they promised to repeat the visit to attend the opera of King Tutankhamun at the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum.

The opera of King Tutankhamun will be held on 22 November 2022 to celebrate 100 years since the discovery of the king's ancient tomb.

During the visit, Seagal and his wife expressed their great admiration for the greatness of the pyramids and ancient Egyptian civilisation, especially King Akhenaton.

After his visit to the pyramids, Egyptologist Zahi Hawass and Seagal had a dinner where Hawass gifted Seagal a copy of his book 'Secrets of the Sand.'
