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 private tour with Ahmed. He was a brilliant guide, we enjoyed ourselves very much and learnt a lot about the pyramids and history of Egypt. It was good value for money, transportation great and the lunch was lovely too. Thanks for your time Ahmed and for all the photos!!

Fantastic day trip from Cairo! Moataz is not just an excellent guide, but also a brilliant and professional Egyptologist. He helped us to visualize the story behind everything. We didn’t get tired at all and we managed to absorb almost 100% of the information. Our driver, Faraq, is also really experienced and had so much fun! Both of them were extremely friendly and willing to make our day trip as pleasant as possible. We visited more places than we expected, met some nice people and ate tasty local food. Highly recommended!

It was a fun tour. Our guide Mahamed knew so much about everything. He was a really good guide who knew the spots to take pictures and videos. We felt very safe with him as our guide. The transportation was also very good and felt safe. Everything was taken care for us. We just had to enjoy the tour (which we did). Thank you!
