After admiring the pyramids, Sphinx, and Valley Temple and hearing their secrets from your Egyptologist guide, head inside the modern Solar Boat Museum.

Departure Time

9:00 AM
Start your tour with hotel pickup in Cairo and head for the Giza Plateau, where the three pyramids rise into the sky.

With your Egyptologist guide, awe at these immense ancient burial tombs and learn how they were built for the three pharaohs of Khufu, Chephren, and Menkaure over 4,600 years ago. Hear revealing facts about their construction, and see the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the biggest of the three, close up. Learn how it was built from 2.3 million giant stone blocks, and took 20 years or more to complete. If you'd like, your guide can arrange a visit inside the pyramid for an additional charge.

Visit the Solar Boat Museum, built to house the reassembled wooden funerary barge found buried beside the Great Pyramid. Marvel at the well-preserved cedar boat, and hear how it was buried here to provide Khufu with transport during the afterlife.

View the Great Sphinx, the enigmatic, human-headed statue carved from a single limestone ridge, and wander around the Valley Temple, whose halls were probably used for pharaonic mummification.

Head to a viewpoint for sweeping panoramas of all three pyramids, and ease down your sightseeing with an enjoyable camel ride on the sands of the Sahara—the desert that merges into the plateau.

Cap your morning with a simple Egyptian lunch at a local restaurant, refueling with various local dishes before your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
