Begin with a 9am pickup at your hotel in Cairo or Giza, and travel to the Giza plateau in a private, air-conditioned minivan. After entering the plateau, visit the three pyramids that dominate the landscape, and listen to stories about the ancient kings who built them: Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure.
Descend to the Great Sphinx of Giza—the limestone statue is the oldest known monumental statue in the world—and learn the mysteries surrounding its construction. Pause to photograph the classic view from the Sphinx to the Giza pyramids, then take a camel ride to a panorama for a open perspective on the entire plateau.
Now it’s time to head into the sand: suit up for a 1-hour quad biking tour, then rev your engine and start exploring at the edge of the Sahara Desert. The desert near Cairo is mostly flat, so you can open up the accelerator and cool off in the wind, then practice maneuvering through sand and small rocks with the pyramids as a spectacular backdrop. At the end of your time on the quad bike, return to base at the Giza Plateau for the return trip to your Giza or Cairo hotel, where this tour concludes.
