Cairo/Giza: Guided Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum Tour

1. Cairo/Giza: Guided Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum Tour

With an Egyptologist guide leading the way, this Cairo day trip lets you visit iconic ancient Egyptian sites including the Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx, followed by a visit to the Egyptian Museum. You can choose to take a private tour, or join a group tour. Your guided tour begins at the Great Pyramids of Giza. This iconic site is home to three large ancient Egyptian pyramids, as well as the Great Sphinx and remains of a workers’ village. The biggest attraction is the Pyramid of Cheops or Khufu which is commonly known as the Great Pyramid. It is the last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The magnificent structure is an amazing testimony to the ingenuity of ancient Egyptian builders thousands of years ago.  The much-photographed Pyramid of Khafre or Chephren is the only one of the three pyramids which retains some of the original limestone casing. The smaller Pyramid of Menkaure or Mykerinos makes up the trio. There are several optional activities available around the pyramid complex including camel rides, horse and carriage rides, Nile river cruises and entrance to the interior of the pyramids. These activities are optional and incur additional fees to be paid on the day. No visit to the Giza Pyramid complex would be complete without a close-up look at the mysterious Great Sphinx. With a long and troubled history, this half-pharoah, half-lion monument has intrigued travelers to Egypt for centuries. Who is the face of the Sphinx? You can also visit the Valley Temple which belongs to the pyramid of Khafre. The temple served an important role in the preparation and mummification of the king before burial. Having an Egyptologist guide on hand during your visit to Giza will certainly come in handy with such a rich history.  Not far from the pyramids you will have a short stop at the Institute of Papyrus. Here you can see how ancient Egyptians made the first paper in the world. Test out your bargaining skills and negotiate a good price for a papyrus souvenir to take home. Enjoy an optional lunch at a restaurant in Cairo before continuing to the world-famous Egyptian Museum. The museum is home to an immense collection of rare and valuable artifacts from the pharaonic period including mummies, chariots, jewelry and everyday items. Mostly famously the Egyptian Museum is home to a mesmerizing exhibit dedicated to Tutankhamen's collection of treasure, gold and jewelry. The glittering artifacts were discovered untouched in King Tut’s sealed burial chamber in 1922 by Howard Carter. With more than 250,000 artifacts, your Egyptologist guide will once again guide you through the fascinating history of ancient Egypt, and help you navigate the jam-packed museum. Your Cairo day trip concludes with transfer back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Port Said

We were a group of 6 friends on a cruise which docked at Port Said for 2 days and we pre booked our tour before we travelled. We decided to book independent of the cruise company (Virgin Voyages) as was much cheaper. Our guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable. Would 100% recommend, wish I could remember his name. The driver was fantastic too, a 3 hour drive from port said to the pyramids and then back again, no mean feat on those roads! We definitely had a more personal experience than others from our cruise ship who went with bigger organised tours and didn’t get to see as much as we did. We were worried about timings and being back before the ship departed (our tour was on day 2 docked at port) but our guide kindly arranged for our lunch on the Nile to be earlier than originally booked for so we could get everything in that we had paid for. We arrived back in plenty of time and even managed a couple of unplanned extra stops en route. Just brilliant!

Excellent and highly recommended! The airport was chaotic, with queues for everything and little information which results in you having to go elsewhere to then rejoin the queue. Advice make sure you once you enter the arrivals hall, have a pen as there are none there to complete your visa. Then go to the Bank to purchase your Visa before joining the other queue! Despite the airport delays, our driver was patiently waiting for us outside with a sign with our names on which was such a welcome sight! Car was clean and comfortable and our driver had bottled water for us waiting, was great at navigating his way through the night time traffic which is like nowhere else in the 🌍 world! Great service and would HIGHLY recommend! 5* service - thank you 🙏

Everything went very smooth, the great this is company is in touch with You all the time , they are checking flight status so in case of the change they will adjust pick up time. Our Driver Mohammed was fantastic with great knowledge of the history, i definitely recommend this company.

our guide is awesome! she helped us check a lot bucket list places off. got to see the great pyramid, the sphinx, and the museum of Cairo. stopped and did a little suviner shopping as well. very informed and has good connections in the community it seems. would highly recomend her.

Two days packed with activities, unforgettable impressions and interesting information. We were thrilled and were surprised every now and then when we thought we had already seen everything. Many thanks to Rami for the great support! We will be back
