Architectural Treasures of Ancient Egypt
Come with me on a life-time tour to the most impressive structures of the Pharaohs : the Great Pyramid , the Sphinx and the Step Pyramid. Tick another wonder off your bucket list and see the Great Pyramid - the only wonder of the ancient world still standing. Take a camel across the Sahara Desert and take the best panoramic pictures of ALL the pyramids.
I will show around the enigmatic Sphinx, the man-headed lion guarding the Pyramids since the 3rd millennium BC. We will visit the mysterious Valley Temple where the Egyptian kings were mummified. Here the megalithic blocks weigh more than 400 tons! It's still a mystery how the Egyptians moved them.
I will take you to Saqqara, Egypt's largest necropolis, and show you around the Step Pyramid - the oldest pyramid ever raised by the Pharaohs. We will also visit the Complex of King Zoser - the oldest structure made of stone in ancient Egypt.
We will go around the ruins of Memphis and see the Colossal statue of King Ramses II and the Alabaster Sphinx.

Tarek is amazing, informative, flexible and just a great guy!! You won't find anyone better than him for a guide. We had two other guides while in Egypt and we wished we'd Tarek with us instead. One of the joys of hiring Tarek is his itineraries are very thorough and when he quotes you a price he is very specific about what it will cover, so there is no miscommunication. I also recommend this site in general since you can pay for everthing via the site and don't have to carry/ pay in cash later.
