Beat the worst of Giza’s famously persistent sellers by taking this private full-day tour that covers the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx, the ancient city of Memphis, and the burial ground at Saqqara (Sakkara). There’s no need to stand in line or haggle for transport: your private Egyptologist guide takes care of transportation, tickets, and explains the archaeology too.

Capture a shot with the celebrated Sphinx, explore the Valley Temple, where king Khafre was mummified, then enjoy an included lunch at a local restaurant.
Refreshed, hop into your private air-conditioned vehicle for the journey to Saqqara (Sakkara), about 17 miles (27 kilometers) southwest of Cairo. Explore the Step Pyramid and other ancient tombs in this eerie city of the dead.
