Visit the Giza pyramids and sphinx by camel or horse on a private, half-day tour from Cairo, and experience the serene desert setting of Egypt’s most iconic monuments. Go face-to-face with the enigmatic sphinx, circle the towering Great Pyramid, and take in sweeping views to Abusir and the Sakkara necropolis.
We had ahmad zakaria as our tour guide for the giza day tour which included a tour of giza plateau and the sphinx as well as a 2 hour camel ride (it read as 25 mins in the description when I booked it) We paid extra to go in khufus tomb and I had inconveniently left my tickets in my camera bag so ahmad went back to the car to get it-no complains. To start with we were late for the tour because our son was not well and we cut short the camel ride too. He was knowledgeable but some info he needs to update himself. For one, the great pyramids were not build by slaves but paid workers because of workers villages which were unearthed sorrounding tombs. We had a whole air conditioned van to ourselves. Contrary to the advertisement there is no wifi in the van. Ahmad offered to tether from his mobile but we declined. I also want to add that because our son and #39;s health got worse, we postponed the Nile river cruise twice and finally cancelled it altogether and they fully refunded us the whole amount. I forgot to tip ahmad zakaria I wish I had because he was very nice to us. He was a bit pushy tho, understandly because we were late for the tour. But his hospitality more than made up for it. He also bought us bottles of water and kushery (again bottled water anf snacks are mentioned in the package but it and #39;s not kept in the van-they buy it for u when u ask for it) he picked us up from a hotel in downtown Cairo with all our luggage and dropped us off to a hotel near giza. So if your pick up and drop off destination is different it and #39;s OK
