Departs: Daily 8:00 am from customer's location in Cairo or Giza Duration: 4 Hours (approx) Type: Half day Cairo tour Highlights: Pyramids of Giza, and Sphinx Step back in time to the days of ancient Egypt on a private tour of the Great Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx. The Giza Plateau is only around 30 minutes from Cairo, where your qualified Egyptologist guide will provide a fascinating introduction to each of the three pyramids: Cheops, Khafre and Menakaure. You will have free time to enter one of the pyramids (additional cost), though your guide is not permitted to enter with you, or take a camel ride (additional cost). After visiting the pyramids, you'll continue across the plateau for a photo opportunity of the three pyramids rising from the sands, with the Cairo skyline in the background. A short drive to the city side of the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the Sphinx, for thousands of years the enigmatic symbol of Egypt. Also in Giza you may visit the Solar Boat Museum (optional), home to the remarkably well preserved funerary boat of Khufu. During the tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy a 30 minutes camel ride.
