What You Can Expect

Best Private Tour: Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Sakkara

Stepped Pyramid of Sakkara, Egypt

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Excellent tour. Our tour guide was Mohamed Atef Ahmed. He did an excellent job of planning our day for us. He discussed the reasons for his plans and asked us if there were any specific souvenirs that we wanted and planned in a trip to a government verified location to get what we wanted. He took time to get to know us which made the tour even better. He knew the best locations to take pictures and which vendors were good to shop at. I would highly recommend Mohamed to anyone wanting to see Cairo.
