    What to Expect
    Your private tour of the Giza pyramids, Sphinx, and other Cairo highlights kicks off with pick up from your Cairo hotel. Enjoy a personalized tour of the great pyramids, and the 3,000 year-old-Sphinx—two of the city’s most iconic sites—complete with stories and history from your friendly Egyptologist. 

    Learn about Cheops, Khfre and Menakaure—three of Cairo’s best known pyramids and enter one (additional cost) to explore solo, since guides are not permitted. Once you’ve taken in the ancient wonder, head to the nearby plateau where you can capture the towering pyramids rising up from golden sands with the city skyline as a backdrop.

    From there, make your way to the iconic Sphinx, perhaps the most enigmatic symbol of Egypt. Your guide will explain the folklore around this massive lion with the head of a king as you take a closer look. 

    Interested travelers can also visit the famed Papyrus Institute to learn how this historic artwork is crafted. It’s easy to opt out on the visit by informing your guide, since this tour is designed to meet your personal interests and needs.
