What you can expect

Witness first-hand one of the most iconic sights in the world—the Great Pyramid of Giza and neighboring Sphinx. Uncover the history of the Pharaohs and ancient Egyptians with a visit to the archeological remains of Memphis and Sakkara, all with the expertise of your private guide.

Admire the distinguished sight of the pyramid at Giza, which has stood for thousands of years and is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the only one still largely intact. Marvel at the engineering prowess necessary to build such a structure, which stood as the tallest in the world until relatively recently. See the adjacent grand Sphinx, guarding the tombs of the Pharaohs.

Continue to the site of Memphis, once the capital of Old Egypt and the center of rule and culture for 3,000 years. Observe the remains of statues, sarcophagi, and sphinxes that provide clues to this once magnificent city. The nearby step pyramid and cemetery of Sakkara provides further evidence of life in the ruling classes of the ancient Egyptians.

Complete your private tour over lunch, as you benefit from your guide's extensive knowledge of the historical narrative, tailoring the experience to your specific interests.
