Know More about this tour

The Giza plateau is only around 30 minutes from Cairo, where 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), though your guide is not permitted to enter with you, or take a camel ride (additional cost).

After visiting the pyramids, you'll 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. Also in Giza you may visit The solar boat museum (optional), home to the remarkably well preserved funerary boat of Khufu.

Your next stop is Sakkara, home of Egypt's oldest pyramid, built in 2650 B.C. Your guide will provide a brief history of the famous Step Pyramid and you'll have free time to walk around.

Your final stop is Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt. Here you will see artifacts from many of the great rulers of Egypt, including the fallen statue of Ramses II. You will also have the chance to visit a Papyrus Institute to see how the famous artwork is made.

    Was good to visit all these egypt sites, as it is very interesting. We enjoyed all the site seeing, but our lunch wasn’t nice. I ate the food, but my partner didn’t.
    Our tour guide was nice and friendly but his accent made it a bit hard to understand him.
    Still recommend to do a tour to visit these places, but maybe organize your own food

    Our guide was spectacular: educated, knowledgeable and personable. He spoke English fluently and could read Ancient Egyptian. Great tour! It's a must-do!

    We learned so much on this tour. Guide was excellent and driver was great too. Learned more about the many pyramids and families that built them.

    Our guide, Fouad, was absolutely incredible. He was super knowledgeable about the sites, but also about the country generally. He answered all of our questions and helped us navigate the typical tricky bits of tourism in Egypt. I would recommend the tour and Fouad if he’s available without question. He made our experience incredible.

    Excellent and must do tour! We had the most informative and great with a camera guide! He made certain we saw everything as a local. He was extremely knowledgeable and had superb photo taking skills , this was must see and we are so delighted to have taken this tour which included a fabulous buffet !

    We had a great tour! Our guide, Khalid, was very well informed, and told a great story of the history and architecture that we saw. It was very engaging, and even included the Papyrus museum, so we were able to cancel that booking we had for the following day. Our guide also knew his way around a camera quite well and was familiar with all of the best vantage points, so we really got wonderful pictures. Lunch was above average, and we left very pleased despite the intense heat!

    Our tour guide gave us a great day in Cairo seeing so many impressive and significant sites. We enjoyed his knowledge and passion for Egypt. I would recommend him for future visits.

    This was the highlight of our tour and that's also because of our guide - Ahmed. He was an absolute delight, incredibly chatty and knowledgable and so eager to give us information about Egypt and the sights we saw. He talked to us about the history of Egypt as well as Egyptian life in the 21st century. He was happy to chat to us about anything!
    We also had additional stops on the tour including a camel ride in Giza to see the 9 pyramids, a visit to an Egyptian Cotton shop, the papryus institute and a visit to a carpet/rug making shop.
    The pyramids and Sphinx in Giza is mindblowing, the statue of Ramesis was also very impressive. The 1st pyramid in Sakkara was very interesting.
    Our driver was great too - the traffic in Giza/Cairo is chaotic and manic so it was nice to be driven around by an expert haha
    We didn't eat in a restaurant as Ahmed wanted to cram as much into the day as possible so we picked up falafal and the most amazing authentic chicken Shawarma to eat while we drove to our next destination.
    I cannot recommend this tour highly enough!

    Dont skip this tour. Youll be missing something amazing! Our guide was great and we were able to get some amazing pictures.

    THe guide skipped the Boat museum and had me pay for my own lunch, then led me into a high pressure sales pitch from a perfume seller on the way back to hotel.

    Egypt is full on con artist and pushy street peddlers. They extend to the local tour companies as well. BEWARE
