Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Museum of Antiquities, Tahrir Square and Grand Bazaar (Souq)


Here's your best chance to see the best heritage of Egypt and learn how the Egyptians make history.

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 did the Pharaohs move them?!!).

Head for the Egyptian Museum at Tahrir Square. It's at this square that the 25th January Revolution took place in 2011.

At the Museum you see the breath-taking collection of king Tut-ankh-amon, including the king's golden mask. You will also see many masterpieces of other kings and queens.

Proceed to the Grand Bazaar. Do as the locals do: have some refreshing mint-tea, do a bit of haggling and smoke the Egyptian water-pipe.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a wonderful tour! Tarek is so enthusiastic about his subject matter and his knowledge is very deep. We had such a wonderful time. Though we were tired and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is not air conditioned, Tarek kept the energy level high and we absorbed a tremendous amount of information in such a short time. Soon the new museum will be open but there is an authenticity to the current museum and though warm I think the experience—with a guide like Tarek, in the old museum is unbeatable!
