Private Tour: Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Sakkara

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Start your private tour with a hotel pickup in Cairo or Giza, and travel by air-conditioned minivan to the Giza Plateau. Head into the site with your Egyptologist guide and marvel at the pyramids. Take snaps and listen as your guide explains how these monumental tombs were built in around 2,500 BC for three pharaohs.

    Get free time to explore inside one of the pyramids independently (additional cost) — your guide is not permitted to accompany you. Alternatively, take a camel ride (additional cost) and absorb the sweeping views over central Cairo. 

    See the enigmatic Sphinx, and perhaps complete your visit with entry to the Solar Boat Museum (additional cost): home to the funerary boat of Khufu, the pharaoh for whom the largest Giza pyramid was built. Gaze in awe at the wooden boat, and learn how its remnants were discovered and reassembled by archaeologists.
Next, make the short drive to Sakkara, the home of Egypt's oldest pyramid, constructed in around 2,650 BC. Admire this incredible, stepped structure as you learn how it was built for the Pharaoh Djoser, and enjoy time to explore at leisure.

    Then, continue to Memphis, Egypt’s ancient capital and administrative center until around 2,200 BC. View the UNESCO-listed sculptures and ruins in its outdoor museum, and behold the star turn: a spectacularly large, fallen statue of Ramses II. 

    During your day’s explorations, break for lunch (additional cost) and visit a papyrus institute to see the ancient craft of papyrus painting in action. Watch the artisans at work and perhaps buy some of the delicate artworks.

    Your day trip finishes with a drop-off back at your Cairo or Giza hotel.

    Private tour for two. Khalid was great at giving us Egyptian history and education. He was very well informed and helpful. Perfect for anyone wanting to have more privacy, while gaining knowledge about the ancient archeological sites.

    This tour was fascinating! We learned so much about ancient Egypt. Fouyed was a fabulous guide. He was so knowledgeable and even added a stop at a carpet school, so we could see how Egyptian carpets are made.

    Excellent last day in Egypt before flying home, we had spent most of our time in and around Luxor. We were met promptly from our overnight sleeper train which was above and beyond expectation, which meant our private tour began early avoiding much of the midday heat. We started
