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 on this private tour. First-time visitors to Egypt—or travelers short on time—are able to tick off all the sights during this in-depth, full-day guided sightseeing tour from Cairo.
Highlights
  • An in-depth, private sightseeing tour of the Giza pyramid complex from Cairo
  • Tick off all the top sights: Visit Saqqara and Giza on the same trip
  • Enjoy round-trip transportation from your Cairo or Giza hotel
  • Tuck into a delicious Egyptian lunch at a local restaurant
What to Expect
Ancient Lower Egypt’s great rulers marked their territory with timeless monuments, larger-than-life relics of their once-mighty reign. On this private tour 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, visit the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, which marked a new style of monument. Your tour concludes back at your hotel.

Osama, our amazing guide who I will talk more about in a minute, and our driver was at our Airbnb promptly at 8 to pick us up and his energy was out of this world from his introduction. I think he was more excited about the day than we were and his excitement was contagious.
