Cairo/Giza: Guided Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum Tour

Cairo/Giza: Guided Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum Tour

With an Egyptologist guide leading the way, this Cairo day trip lets you visit iconic ancient Egyptian sites including the Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx, followed by a visit to the Egyptian Museum. You can choose to take a private tour, or join a group tour. Your guided tour begins at the Great Pyramids of Giza. This iconic site is home to three large ancient Egyptian pyramids, as well as the Great Sphinx and remains of a workers’ village. The biggest attraction is the Pyramid of Cheops or Khufu which is commonly known as the Great Pyramid. It is the last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The magnificent structure is an amazing testimony to the ingenuity of ancient Egyptian builders thousands of years ago.  The much-photographed Pyramid of Khafre or Chephren is the only one of the three pyramids which retains some of the original limestone casing. The smaller Pyramid of Menkaure or Mykerinos makes up the trio. There are several optional activities available around the pyramid complex including camel rides, horse and carriage rides, Nile river cruises and entrance to the interior of the pyramids. These activities are optional and incur additional fees to be paid on the day. No visit to the Giza Pyramid complex would be complete without a close-up look at the mysterious Great Sphinx. With a long and troubled history, this half-pharoah, half-lion monument has intrigued travelers to Egypt for centuries. Who is the face of the Sphinx? You can also visit the Valley Temple which belongs to the pyramid of Khafre. The temple served an important role in the preparation and mummification of the king before burial. Having an Egyptologist guide on hand during your visit to Giza will certainly come in handy with such a rich history.  Not far from the pyramids you will have a short stop at the Institute of Papyrus. Here you can see how ancient Egyptians made the first paper in the world. Test out your bargaining skills and negotiate a good price for a papyrus souvenir to take home. Enjoy an optional lunch at a restaurant in Cairo before continuing to the world-famous Egyptian Museum. The museum is home to an immense collection of rare and valuable artifacts from the pharaonic period including mummies, chariots, jewelry and everyday items. Mostly famously the Egyptian Museum is home to a mesmerizing exhibit dedicated to Tutankhamen's collection of treasure, gold and jewelry. The glittering artifacts were discovered untouched in King Tut’s sealed burial chamber in 1922 by Howard Carter. With more than 250,000 artifacts, your Egyptologist guide will once again guide you through the fascinating history of ancient Egypt, and help you navigate the jam-packed museum. Your Cairo day trip concludes with transfer back to your hotel.

They picked us up at the hotel despite being outside the pickup area. The guide Sherif Alsalahi and the driver Belal were very punctual. We have been delighted with the guide, he is attentive and fun. It has made us really enjoy this activity. At the hotel they gave us a room to change into and go to the beach. Very good food with good views. They gave us towels to dry off. We liked it very much, we were sitting on the sun loungers with the umbrellas until 4 pm. Then we headed back to Cairo and made a stop in between to rest.

Our guide was very kind, he explained everything to us in detail, took many photos and advised us on what was best to do. He took us to a very nice place and eventually to the Museum. We were going a little fast there (I don't know why) but we saw the most important things.

It was incredible, the sherif guide was very kind and very attentive at all times, I highly recommend this tour, I would perhaps put a little more attention into the food, since it was not the time they said, it was still delicious

Emy was a great guide and very informative. Really enjoyed my time as a solo female traveller.

A very kind Maha guide who explains everything in detail, I would recommend her.
