Full description
Begin this half-day tour of the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx straight from your hotel in Cairo. Head toward the Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinus and discover the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Egyptologists believe the Pyramid of Cheops (also known as the Great Pyramid of Giza) was built as a tomb for the Egyptian Pharaoh Khofo and constructed over a 14 to 20-year period in 2560 BC. Afterwards, continue on toward the Great Sphinx. The Sphinx has the head of a pharaoh with a lion's body and dates back to the time of Chephren. This sphinx was made to guard the pyramids of King Chefren. Next, visit the Valley Temple which belonged to the Pyramids of Chephren. The temple acted as a place for the purification and mummification process of the king before burial.

Very good experience and fast contact with the tour operator . The guide was English speaker instead of French speaker , nevertheless the tour operator contacted me very quickly to inform me and check it was fine for me. The guide, Dina, is super knowledgeable and kind, she did show the best spot and provided relevant and interesting information ( not too much ,nor too little) and with the driver the service was very good. Attention that the entrance ticket to Pyramids area and parking is not included , but I highly recommend this experience with this company!

Наш гайд Самуил был просто супер! Нас забрали с отеля и для нас был приватный тур к пирамидам and сфинксу на машине с водителем. Наш гайд говорил на отличном русском языке. Как он сам потом сказал , он любит историю , поэтому рассказывал все очень интересно и понятно. Также он объяснил , как нужно вести себя , чтобы не облапошили. После купить сувениры , парфюм , папирус и т.д. Однозначно 10/10!

Many thanks to our guide Mohamed and to the driver Murat! It was very nice, we saw everything, got a lot of information and spent the time at the pyramids and sphinx really wisely. Was also very funny and helpful! We also did a second tour for Coptic Quarter and Khan El Khalili Market and this one was at least as good! We would recommend both our guide and driver! Thank you very much! Carmen and Vivi
