How to Choose a Giza Pyramids Tour
No trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to the Giza pyramids. Whether you’re a history buff, couple, time-crunched visitor, or budget traveler, there’s a perfect, convenient tour to Giza from Cairo that help will ensure you see these ancient desert wonders before heading home.
For the Budget Traveler
A trip to see this UNESCO World Heritage Site doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. A small-group, full-day pyramids tour balances the benefit of a knowledgeable guide with an intimate group, so you’ll still be able to ask questions. For even better value, combine your visit to the pyramids with stops at Memphis and Sakkara as well.
For the History Buff
Few places on the planet can rival the historical significance of the Giza pyramids complex, one of the wonders of the ancient world. If history’s a passion, opt for a tour led by an Egyptologist guide who can offer even greater knowledge and insight into the archaeological wonders you’re seeing, from the Great Sphinx to ancient Memphis.
To experience all the romance that Egypt has to offer, combine a Egyptologist tour guide–led day tour of the ancient Giza pyramids with a romantic dinner cruise down the Nile River. Feast on gourmet Egyptian fare and watch a traditional dance performance—the ultimate date night in Cairo.
For the Time-Crunched Visitor
If you have limited time in Cairo, make the most of it with a comprehensive private tour that hits all the highlights, including the pyramids and Sphinx (including a camel ride on the Giza plateau), Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, and a traditional Egyptian bazaar where you can bargain for souvenirs and gifts to take home.
