Know More about this tour

Your private qualified Egyptologist tour guide will meet you outside the terminal building with a signboard having your name on it. Then you will get on your private, air-conditioned minivan,  before embarking on the 45-minute journey to the UNESCO-listed Giza Pyramids.

At Giza, visit the three grand pyramids: the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the pyramid of Khafre, and the pyramid of Menkaure. All of them date back over 3,400 years. Next, mount a camel to voyage across the desert, before exploring the Valley Temple and admiring the enigmatic Sphinx. After your tour, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant: please note additional charges apply to climb inside a pyramid or visit The solar boat museum.

Next, it's into Cairo, and the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, home to more than 100,000 ancient Egyptian artefacts, including the treasures of King Tutankhamen, mummies of kings, queens, and animals, and much, much more. (A ticket to the Royal Mummy Room is available at an additional charge.)

Finally, discover Old Cairo, itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire ancient mosques, medieval city gates, and traditional Ottoman-era houses, before visiting the historic bazaar of Khan al-Khalili to haggle for souvenirs and soak up the atmosphere. The tour lasts between 12 and 16 hours depending on your layover duration: your guide will transfer you to the airport in good time for your onward flight.
