What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Giza Pyramids and Sphinx

Sphinx, Giza

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.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

I took the family on the pyramid tour and was a little concerned about the touts due to the low numbers of tourists at the moment. Our guide explained what would happen when we got there and what to say. He was able to keep most of the touts away allowing us to really enjoy the whole experience. You're transported around the site in the mini bus in air conditioned comfort. I can honestly say that the experience was much better than I was expecting. So a highly recommended way of seeing the pyramids.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Excellent customer service. The tour (and tour guide - Henry) were more than I expected. His knowledge of Egypt, it's history and the stories behind the creation of the pyramids were VERY informative and the flexibility of the tour was very refreshing in the way it personalize my visit. Thank you all so much for taking the extra steps to make it a wonderful experience that I'll never forget.
