If you love ancient Egypt but have just limited time in Cairo, this is the tour for you. Traveling in style with a private Egyptologist guide, you’ll visit Cairo’s three greatest ancient sites—the Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara, and Memphis—all in one day. Tour includes lunch, entrance fees, and hotel pickup and drop-off—plus the opportunity to customize your day to suit your interests.
What to Expect
After your private Egyptologist guide collects you from your hotel, you’ll start the day at the Pyramids of Giza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s home not only to the three Great Pyramids but to the Great Sphinx and the Valley Temple. Your guide will explain the meaning and significance of this 4,500-year-old site and answer any questions you may have.
After lunch at a local restaurant, hop into your air-conditioned vehicle to explore Saqqara, the UNESCO-listed city of the dead that’s home to the Step Pyramid and the Tombs of the Nobles. Next, continue to Memphis, once the capital of Egypt, with a history dating back more than 5,000 years. The standout here is the colossal statue of Ramesses II. Wrap up the day with a transfer back to your hotel.

Excellent tour guide Mohamed moussa

Had a fantastic experience. Mohamed Moussa explained everything in such a manner that I would not forget. He is sure the pic of the trip through Egypt in my opinion.

Wonderful tour!

Our guide Ahmed Mohammed and driver Isam were very good and patient with us. Punctual and well organised throughout the trip. Zero complaints with the experience and for anyone keen to understand the history of the pyramids this is a no-brainer.

Brilliant tour, excellent guide.

We were picked up from our hotel, our guide was Majed and we had a driver and went straight to the Giza pyramids. Cairo traffic is mad but we felt very safe. Majed had excellent knowledge, he is a local of Cairo and took us...More

Well, as far as the Pyramids are concerned, you may have to walk about 150-200 m to The great Pyramid. You can decide how much you want to see there as the private day tour we took resulted in us walking around the Great... More

If you miss Memphis then Giza and Dahshur is doable in 1 day. I can’t comment on the costs but we found that what they say on the website as their charge is generally correct but if you email them then they will tailor it... More
