Full description

Embark on a full-day tour to the Giza Pyramids, the Sphinx, Memphis, and Sakkara from Cairo. Learn about the treasures of the ancient world with your guide and enjoy a delicious lunch. Start your tour by visiting the Great Pyramids - Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos. The highlight of this section is getting close up to the Sphinx - the legendary guardian with a lion’s body and the head of King Chephren.

Admire the impressive statue and get your photo taken beside it. You will then visit Sakkara, a 27 km journey away from Cairo. The highlight of this section is the Step Pyramid. Built for King Zoser, it is considered an important part of the process of the pyramid evolution. Finally, you'll head over to Memphis. Not the home of Elvis, of course, but the ancient capital of Egypt!

We had a really nice guide and a driver to visit the pyramids. They picked us up on time and dropped off close to 16:30. Mina, our guide, was very calm and knowledgeable person. The whole experience went very smoothly and with no push to buy things from any pre arranged vendors.

The guide was so knowledgable about Egyptian history and managed the timing of activities and the schedule very well. During the friendly conversation we learned a lot! The camel ride was a fun bonus and well supervised. The trip inside the pyramids was fascinating but we wouldn’t advise it for anyone with health or mobility issues. The driver was friendly and the car was comfortable and cool. The lunch was delicious!

We had the most amazing time! given our first day in Egypt, he definitely made us feel more relaxed and welcomed. Mr. Ahmed ''What’s wrong with you'' was our guide. Mr Adil was our driver and he was one of the gentleman we met in Egypt, he always had a smile on his face and was very flexible with time and welcoming. We went to see the pyramids at Sakkara and the great pyramids. He has all the stories, he has humor and above all the hospitality was truly incredible. He has wonderful knowledge and made sure that we are safe and secured. He wasn’t just a guide he was our photographer and clicked hundereds of pictures. He introduced us to the beautiful culture. We felt like family and we will miss him truly!!! This is a must do tour and if you can request this man I promise you won’t regret it! Please ask him for the koshery (local food).
