Giza Pyramids, Sphinx & Sahara Desert


Here's your chance to see the best heritage of Egypt and learn how the Egyptians made history thousands of years ago.

Take a fantastic tour to the massive Pyramids of Giza. See the Great Pyramid; the only wonder of the ancient world still standing. Take a camel across the Sahara - an unforgettable experience. Proceed to the enigmatic Sphinx, the man-headed lion guarding the Pyramids since the 3rd millennium BC. Go around the mysterious Valley Temple where king Chephren was mummified. Here some of the blocks weigh up to 400 tons! (How on earth did you move them?!!!).

Head for a restaurant to have typically Egyptian food such as falafel, teheeny, kebab, kufta, hummous, pita bread . . . . etc. Proceed to your hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

Tarek was an excellent tour guide. We did a half-day tour, at our request, of the pyramids and the citadel of Cairo, with our 2 children - 17 and 11. He was timely, provided a detailed overview of the ancient Egyptian monuments and the Islamic history of the citadel. He also helped us arrange for a very fun camel ride for our children. We would definitely recommend him and will rely on him as our tour guide in the future.
