Any Hotel in Cairo or Giza

Meet your guide at your Cairo hotel, and make the trip to the Giza Plateau in a comfortable, air conditioned car. Take a walk through the Saharan sand at the base of King Cheops’ Great Pyramid, which is the oldest and largest of Giza’s three pyramids and the only remaining wonder of the ancient world. Hear the most respected (and outrageous) theories about how the pyramids were built, then learn how the pyramids would have looked to ancient Egyptians.

Continue to the pyramids built by Khafre and Menkaure, and follow the ways that pyramid construction changed over time. Stand at the feet of the Great Sphinx as your guide shares the myths and legends behind the half-lion, half-human monument, the oldest and largest monumental statue in the world.

Descend to the mortuary complex at the valley temple, which was buried in sand until the 19th-century. Discover what is known—and what remains a mystery—about this gorgeously preserved site, then finish the tour with return transfer to your Cairo hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Pyramids of Giza
Meet your personal guide in your hotel lobby at 8:00 am for the short drive out of Cairo to the desert at Giza, part of the legendary Sahara Desert. Here you'll admire the three mighty pyramids silhouetted against the sand, beginning with the Great Pyramid, built by the pharaoh Khufu over 3,500 years ago. Your guide will explain the stories behind this and the pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure, including how they were constructed and how they looked in ancient times, and take you out into the desert for photo opportunities. Next, you'll descend to admire the Sphinx, the giant half-human, half-lion monument that's an icon of Egypt. Finally, you'll explore an Ancient Egyptian temple, the Valley Temple, most likely built by Khafre, in the days when the River Nile flowed past Giza and this desert gorge was fertile valley. You'll drive back to your hotel

The guide was very knowledgeable and explain all in a very detail, the drivers was in time and we had a great time. Be careful with the camels owner, they will do all their best to scow you and get the maximum of your pocket. Don’t give more then 5$ each as we pay. We had to négociate to get into this deal. Don’t let them stress you.
