Overview
The Giza pyramid complex contains the fabled relics of Egypt’s Old Kingdom, constructed a whopping 4,500 years ago. Get a peek at one of the world’s top historical attractions, which includes the Valley Temple, the Saqqara necropolis, and the mysterious, timeless Sphinx. First-time visitors to Egypt—or travelers short on time—will be able to tick off all the sights during this in-depth, full-day guided sightseeing tour from Cairo.
Highlights
  • An in-depth, full-day sightseeing tour of the Giza pyramid complex from Cairo
  • Tick off all the top sights: Visit Saqqara and Memphis on the same trip
  • Enjoy round-trip transportation from your Cairo or Giza hotel
What to Expect
Ancient Lower Egypt’s great rulers marked their territory with timeless monuments, larger-than-life relics of their once-mighty reign. In this in-depth, full-day guided visit to the Giza pyramid complex, get a firsthand glimpse of one of the world’s most powerful kingdoms. After front-door pickup from your Giza or Cairo hotel, travel back to the time of the pharaohs as you admire the massive blocks of the world-famous limestone pyramids. Learn about their hidden temples and chambers, witnesses to complex funeral rites. From there, head to the Valley of Temples, ruled by the mysterious, legendary Sphinx. Get a chance to snap unforgettable photos of the famous seated lion, whose head resembles the ancient King Chephren. After a savory lunch at an authentic local restaurant (own expense), visit the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, which marked a new style of monument, and the powerful statues of ancient Memphis, built in 3100 BC.

Very good tour. I would have liked more time at the Sphinx, it was only a 10 mins stop there. Overall, good experience. We got to ride the camel and entered the solar boat museum. Our guide was average but overall enjoyable. We did a private tour. Highly recommend to do it this

This was a great tour, especially thanks to the wonderful guidance of Ahmad. The only thing I suggest is that they include more in Saqqara, and possibly also Dahshur. The fact is that this is not exactly a full day tour - we were done with Giza pyramids in the morning, and I

I started with Sakara, went to Memphis and ended at Giza. The historical remains are amazing. They also included three short stops to sell carpets, perfume and paper which was annoying but that is the nature of tours. I’m traveling solo as a female so having a tour guide made
