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!

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!

We had such an amazing day with our guide Sameh, he is literally the best. We visited all sites as which were stated in the description, Sameh introduced us so many stories and knowledge about Egyptian history and traditions. The lunch was included in the trip, which we found also delicious. The whole day was well organised, we had enough time to take pictures at each site and to look around. The camel riding was so fun, which I personally think is the high moment of the day. Thank you Sameh for giving us such a great start of our Egypt trip.
