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!

I would recommend the private tour especially in Summer when it's very hot. This way you can change the itinerary of the tour if the situation asks for it, like skipping something or staying somewhere longer. Also it makes it possible to stop somewhere spontaneously, which is a bit difficult in a group. The guide was a professional, knew a lot of information. It was nice to talk about the pyramids with him, also about such theories usually not mentioned officially. The guide and the driver very very polite and always opened the car doors for us very time we got in or out.

We had a great experience with our wonderful guide, Ola and our driver, Agmy. It was a private tour and we got to see so much. The pyramids were amazing. Our guide took the best photos. She went above and behind, was very knowledgeable, was friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this tour and guide.
