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.

The tour guide Ahmed was knowledgeable and friendly. Allowed us to go at our own pace. Highlight was camel ride to the Sphinx (which he helped negotiate at a fair price). Definitely recommend.

The trip went very well. Ahmed, my tour guide, was very knowledgeable and respectful. He took care of all of the negotiating for the camel ride and attractions. Everything was great since this was my first trip to Cairo and wasn't sure what to expect.

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.
