What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Giza Pyramids and Sphinx

Sphinx, Giza

Your private tour of the Giza pyramids, Sphinx, and other Cairo highlights kicks off with pick up from your Cairo hotel. Enjoy a personalized tour of the great pyramids, and the 3,000 year-old-Sphinx—two of the city’s most iconic sites—complete with stories and history from your friendly Egyptologist. 

Learn about Cheops, Khfre and Menakaure—three of Cairo’s best known pyramids and enter one (additional cost) to explore solo, since guides are not permitted. Once you’ve taken in the ancient wonder, head to the nearby plateau where you can capture the towering pyramids rising up from golden sands with the city skyline as a backdrop.

From there, make your way to the iconic Sphinx, perhaps the most enigmatic symbol of Egypt. Your guide will explain the folklore around this massive lion with the head of a king as you take a closer look. 

Interested travelers can also visit the famed Papyrus Institute to learn how this historic artwork is crafted. It’s easy to opt out on the visit by informing your guide, since this tour is designed to meet your personal interests and needs.

Had a fantastic time visiting the Pyramids with our guide Ahmed. He had a wealth of information regarding Egyptian Antiquity and was a nice guy too. The driver Zaki was also very good. I would definitely recommend taking a tour rather than visiting alone as you get bothered by the touts and hawkers a lot less.

The best part of our tour. Drivers were very skilled at getting through the Cairo streets and outlying areas. We waited a long time to see the Sphinx and Giza Pyramids. It was awesome! Ahmad was our tour guide, spoke very good English and was very funny and knowledgeable. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. We couldn't have done it without Viator!

Fabulous Trip - Our guide Ahmed Kamal was very knowledgeable, passionate about egypt and egyptology and had a great sense of humpour. We had an easy rapport with him and nothing was a problem. He gave us great advice on how to deal with the touts, children etc and ensured that we were well looked after and that all our questions were answered.

Mohammad our tour guide was exceptional. His depth of knowledge and skill in teaching about the pyramids made this one of the best tours we have ever taken. I would highly recommend asking for him specifically. He puts his knowledge over in an easy to understand way. Great value in my opinion.

Best tour so far. Great guide and 5 service.

Guide spoke English, gave lots of info, not pushy and made us feel comfortable so we can do things at our pace. Driver was lovely too. I am surprised at what we got out of this. They were so considerate and made sure we got the most out of it and saw everything.

Will be booking again when I go back :
