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.

Tarek gave us an excellent tour of the Giza plateau (pyramids, solar boat museum, and Sphinx) and arranged for us to ride into the Sahara to gain the best view of all of the pyramids. He was very accommodating and extended our half day tour to include a trip to Dahshur and Saqqara to see the Bent Pyramid, Red Pyramid, and Step Pyramid. Tarek was extremely knowledgeable about all the sites, answered our questions in detail, and clearly has a deep understanding of ancient Egypt. Tarek's a great guide!
