Make your way from your Cairo hotel to the Giza Plateau and prepare to embark on a memorable journey into ancient times. Your expert Egyptologist will show you the exteriors of three pyramids—Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure—as you learn about the history of this famed destination. Choose to enter one (additional cost) on your own to explore, since guides are not permitted inside.
Follow your guide to the nearby plateau to capture photos of the three pyramids emerging from golden sands with the Cairo skyline in the background. Once you’ve snapped your shots, make your way to the feet of the Sphinx, where you’ll learn about the iconic lion with the head of a king from your Egyptologist.
From there, head to Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt. Check out age-old artifacts like the fallen statue of Ramses II. Then head to Dahshur, where your guide will explain the differences between the true and step pyramids that emerged during the 3rd and 4th dynasties.
Because this is a private tour, you’re free to determine how much time is spent at each of the destinations, making for a truly personalized experience. Travelers can opt to visit the Papyrus Institute to learn more about how this famous artwork is crafted.
