Know More about this tour

On the Giza plateau, the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx date back over 3,000 years. While there are actually over 100 pyramids in Egypt, the Pyramids of giza are by far the most famous and are the last of the original Seven Wonders of the World. Your qualified Egyptologist guide will provide a fascinating introduction to each of the three pyramids: Cheops, Khafre and Menakaure. You will have free time to enter one of the pyramids (additional cost), although your guide is not permitted to enter with you.

After visiting the pyramids, you'll then continue across the plateau for a photo opportunity of the three pyramids rising from the sands, with the Cairo skyline in the background.

A short drive to the city side of the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the Sphinx, for thousands of years the enigmatic symbol of Egypt. The Sphinx has the body of a lion and the head of a king, and is surrounded in mystery, including the unanswered questions: who built it and why.

In addition you will have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how this famous artwork is made. If you do not want to include this visit, just inform your guide on the day.

    The tour guide was very rushed and didn't explain anything.
    Was always on her mobile phone and left us to our own devices even though this was a private, guided tour.

    I loved this tour! Andrew, the Egyptologist guide, was really great - full of interesting facts about everything we saw from the Pyramids and Sphinx to Cairo in general as we drove from my hotel to Giza . Also he gave a great briefing about how to deal with the souvenir sellers which meant I wasn't troubled at all.
    The Pyramids and Sphinx were awe-inspiring and I chose to go inside the Great Pyramid which was incredible, if a little cramped :-
    As a female travelling alone I would definitely recommend this tour, felt very safe and was a once in a lifetime experience! Thank you!

    This was the perfect tour for me, a woman in my mid-seventies traveling alone. It was nice that I was the only one on the tour as I could spend as much or as little time as I wanted at each location. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. It was like taking the tour with an Egyptologist. It is impossible to describe what it is like to see the pyramids for the first time. Even though I saw them with my own eyes and touched the stones with my own hands I still could not believe I was actually there. I even went down inside one of the pyramids..... not for the squeamish or the claustrophobic. After visiting the pyramids and the sphinx, we stopped at a papyrus store in Giza. If you do this, bring your credit card because you will want to buy everything. Then the tour guide took me to a shop that specialized in metal objects because I told him I was looking for a very specific metal plate. I spotted exactly what I wanted as soon as we walked in the shop. I could not have been more satisfied with this whole adventure.

    We booked very last minute, but South Sinai Travel accommodated our request. Our tour guide Ahmed was wonderful, he was very warm and made us feel welcome and safe as we toured the pyramids and the Sphinx.

    Had my first visit to Egypt recently for business but I managed to get a day off so that I could see the sights. After looking at a few operators I decided upon and I wasn't disappointed. Received a text the night before to confirm who my guide would be and what time we were to meet. My guide was excellent, very informative, patient and spoke excellent English. The tour itself was great, extensive tour of the pyramids and sphinx as well as an optional camel ride which although touristy was really good fun. I also opted to have an extended tour of the Egyptian museum which was not to be missed. Really great tour that I would highly recommend to anyone.

    Manar and Ivraim were the BEST!!! traveled solo for work and wanted full day tour of cairo, but safety was a concern. After visiting Cairo, I will never think about safety again. I never felt anything but safe.

    Manar was waiting for me lobby and I could immediately tell I was in good hands. We visited the famous souk and neighboring streets with beautiful architecture, the Cairo museum, local shops of my choosing I choose essential oils but there were 5 options then a wonderful authentic lunch were I got to dress in Egyptian garb, then the pyramids and sphinx, followed by a camel ride. It was such a wonderful day that I will never forget!

    Manar was super intelligent, well spoken english, and an expert in Egyptian history, architecture, and culture.

    Our driver, Ivraim was always close by which was impressive since he wasnt allowed to stay parked in front of most places. He is also very kind and friendly.

    Cant wait to use this company again!!!! I highly recommend!!

    Excellent guide and driver. Couldnt have asked for better.

  • 06-Oct-2017

    Recommend it although if you have time you can actually doing on your own.

  • 04-Oct-2017

    A great tour to see one of the wonders of the world. would have been even better if the transport and guide had been on time. The Guide said he was there but couldn't find us but as he was not carrying any sign he was just another guest to us.

    We lost 40 minutes wandering around trying to find him and eventually gave up and just sat in the lobby not a good start and definitely not what we have come to expect form Viator who have never let us down in the past.
