Know More about this tour

Depart from your Cairo hotel and travel to the Giza plateau, around 30 minutes from the city, home to the Great Pyramids and Sphinx. Your qualified Egyptologist guide will introduce you to each of the 3 pyramids from the outside, Pyramid of Khufu, Pyramid of Khafre and the smaller Pyramid of Menkaure. You will have time to enter inside one of the pyramids (additional cost), however your guide is not permitted to escort you.

Continue across the plateau for a photo opportunity of all 3 pyramids rising from the sands with the Cairo skyline in the background. A short drive to the other side of the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the Sphinx and there is time to explore the surrounds including the ruins of the Mummification Temple.

Your next stop is at Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt. Here you will find artifacts from many of the great rulers of Egypt, including the huge fallen statue of Ramses II. Continue to Dahshur, most noteworthy for being the site that best demonstrates the change from the "step" pyramid to the 'true' pyramid that occurred during the 3rd and 4th dynasties.

This is a private tour allowing you to determine the amount of time spent at each of the sites during the tour. In addition you will have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how this famous artwork is made and have the chance to purchase genuine items if you wish. If you do not want to include this visit, just inform your guide on the day.

    Great driver and tour guide. Very professional. No waiting in line and went inside the Giza Pyramid. Worth doing since its not everyday you will have this experience. When going inside the Pyramid, ensure you can bend low and climb the steep ramp like stairs. I got to visit all the other sites where other Pyramids were built but were not the Egyptians perfect pyramids. The Sphinx is awesome to see up close. Amazing history throughout the country. Worth every dime for this tour.

    This was a great tour. Thanks to Osama for all his efforts and dispensing his great wisdom. Moufassa was a great driver! We would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Egypt. I would also like to say, it was completely safe and I felt totally at home here!

    Excelent! Fuhet, our guide was very good!

    A very long, fulfilling day. Fuad did a good job laying out our trip and giving us ample time at each venue. Having a private tour really helped gain the most out of each place. Was very surreal to be standing at the base of the red and bent pyramids with my wife and nobody else was around. What a moment. Giza and the Sphinx of course were much more crowded but we were still able to walk, talk and learn. Fuad certainly didn't oversell the prize of the stop in Memphis - the statue of Ramses. One cannot fathom how big the statue is until you see it. Also a nice touch of the trip - a stop at a family restaurant in Sakkara where a mom and her daughter were baking bread for our lunch right in front of us. Just a very enjoyable, educational day.
