Private Day Tour: Giza Pyramids, Old Cairo, and El Mokattam Mountain Cave Church

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Leave your Cairo hotel by minivan and begin your full-day tour as your private guide tells tales of Cairo’s shared cultural heritage of Christians, Jews, and Muslims.

    Stop first at Giza to see the UNESCO-listed pyramids, including the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Marvel at the Great Pyramid’s scale, and hear how it was built 4,600 years ago from 2.3 million stone blocks.

    Enjoy panoramas of the three pyramids from a viewpoint, and take a short camel ride. Then, get up-close to the Great Sphinx and wander through the Valley Temple, probably once used for mummification.

    After lunch at a local restaurant, head into Old Cairo, a historical enclave that grew up around the Roman fortress of Babylon. View the relics of the 1st-century fort, and peep inside the Hanging Church and round Greek Orthodox Church of St George, both built above the fortifications.

    Then, visit the Ben Ezra Synagogue before traveling to the Moqqatam quarter of Cairo. Hear how this hillside suburb is home to the Christian Zabbaleen community, and step inside their beautiful Cave Church, built into the rocky hillsides. Marvel at the interior before finishing your tour with a hotel drop-off.
