What You Can Expect

Giza Pyramids and Amir Taz Palace Private Tour

Amir Taz

Meet your guide at your Cairo hotel, and make the drive to the Giza Plateau in a private, air conditioned vehicle. Stroll through the Saharan sand—there are also camels on site, if you want to see the pyramids in classic style—and capture unforgettable images of the three iconic pyramids. Learn the stories behind the kings, priests and workers who created the structures, and find out what is known about life, religion and society in ancient Egypt. Follow in the footsteps of generations of adventurers as you stand at the foot of the Great Sphinx, a half-human, half-lion that’s the largest and oldest monumental sculpture in the world.

Return to the historic heart of Cairo to browse a sprawling bazaar, and get insider tips on the best ways to find, and bargain for, the perfect souvenirs. Pause for a drink in the bazaar, then relax over lunch in a high-quality local restaurant.

Make a final stop at Amir Taz Palace, where you can step into the world of a Mamluk noble. Walk shady arcades surrounding a central courtyard, see the intricate details of Islamic architecture and hear about the palace’s recent history as a girl’s school, storage depot and tourist site. Finish the day with return transfer to your Cairo hotel.
