Returns to original departure point
Join your guide in the early morning hours at a Cairo meting point and make your way to the Giza necropolis on this half-day tour. Prepare to see the iconic Sphinx and three pyramids, including Menkaure, Khafre and Cheops. 

Your local guide will transport you through the gate at the Sphinx, where you’ll avoid crowds and gain incredible access to the human-headed lion statue—one of Egypt’s most famous images. Listen in as your guide shares stories and history around this strange structure’s creation as you marvel at its size.

Then follow your guide to the pyramids of Giza, which were built around 2550 BC. Learn how these massive tombs were designed to protect pharaohs as they made their way into the afterlife. Get an up close look at Giza’s largest pyramid, Cheops, which stands 481-feet (147 meters) tall. It is recognized as one of the last Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.

Next your guide will take you to Khafre and Menkaure—two other well-known pyramids. Enkaure is named for the fifth king of the Old Kingdom and was built with granite, rather than limestone, which is more typical of other pyramids.

Once you’ve had your fill on the ground, journey to a popular viewpoint where you’ll get a bird’s eye view of these spectacular structures against the modern Cairo skyline. Take free time to enter one of the pyramids (own expense) on your own, before driving into the city for an authentic meal.

Enjoy typical fare like koshari (lentil, fried onion and chili sauce) or falafel before heading back to your starting point with full bellies and a deeper understanding of one of the ancient world’s most impressive wonders.
