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.

They asked to leave at 7:30 due to traffic jams, we were only happy. We met on time, went in a comfortable car with a kondey, four of us: me, my husband, the guide and the driver. We did not try to bring it anywhere (as usual it happens through tour operators, half excursions are arrivals to shops). Everything went great, thanks

Ackmed is an amazingly kind person and a very patient guide that allowed us to really take as much time as we wanted without making us feel rushed. His relaxed demeanor made a busy day less stressful and we also learned facts about the pyramids that we never knew before.
