What You Can Expect

Meet your guide at your Cairo hotel, and make the trip to the Giza Plateau in a comfortable, air conditioned car. Take a walk through the Saharan sand at the base of King Cheops’ Great Pyramid, which is the oldest and largest of Giza’s three pyramids and the only remaining wonder of the ancient world. Hear the most respected (and outrageous) theories about how the pyramids were built, then learn how the pyramids would have looked to ancient Egyptians.

Continue to the pyramids built by Khafre and Menkaure, and follow the ways that pyramid construction changed over time. Stand at the feet of the Great Sphinx as your guide shares the myths and legends behind the half-lion, half-human monument, the oldest and largest monumental statue in the world.

Descend to the mortuary complex at the valley temple, which was buried in sand until the 19th-century. Discover what is known—and what remains a mystery—about this gorgeously preserved site, then finish the tour with return transfer to your Cairo hotel.
