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!

The tour was great, our guide Salua (might be misspelling her name), was awesome we loved her. She was very knowledgeable kind and helpful. She gave us great explanations about everything we were seeing because a lot of things in Egypt don't have labels or translations like normal museums. She had a whole a degree in Archeology and History if I remember correctly so all of the things we were seeing were her cup of tea if you know what I mean. Our driver was also very kind and caring, getting us to different places and he even had water for us. Loved the experience, expertise, and professionalism. I will be booking them again for another private tour soon because we were very impressed with the hospitality they offered us.
