Know More about this tour

Your qualified Egyptologist tour guide will meet you outside the terminal building with a signboard having your name on it and get on a private, modern a/c vehicle for the 45-minute drive to the Giza plateau.

Your first stop is the Great Pyramid, built by Khufu around 2500 BC, the last remaining wonder of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Next, admire the pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure, and the smaller pyramids of the queens, before strolling up to a viewpoint to capture panoramic pictures. Here you'll enjoy a 25-minute ride on a camel led by an experienced cameleer. Next, explore the Valley Temple of King Khafre, which may well have been where the pharaoh's body was mummified, and marvel at the Sphinx, before breaking for lunch in a local restaurant with views over the UNESCO-listed site.

After lunch, drive into Cairo for a guided tour of the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, home to probably the world's greatest collection of Egyptian artefacts. Marvel at the golden treasures of the boy king Tutankhamen, the portraits of his heretic father, Akhenaten, animal mummies, statuary, and much, much more. Finally, you'll return to Cairo airport in good time for your next flight.

    Go Discovery Travel was exceedingly professional and absolutely fun. The best part was that I was able to incorporate my own interests during the tour and not have to stick to a strict schedule. They were ready at the airport as promised, got me to the Pyramids and Sphinx in record time, treated me to amazing Egyptian food, and even helped memorialize my grandmother by getting me a ship to the Nile. All in all it was an excellent introduction to the city of Cairo and I would definitely recommend them. I look forward to booking with them again upon my return to Egypt. ASK FOR AHMED!!! He’s Great!
