The Great Pyramids are considered the oldest and the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that are still intact, and are a must-do for anyone visiting Egypt. Complete your day with lunch and a boat trip down the famous Nile River.
Your journey begins as your guides pick you up for a pleasant ride by air-conditioned vehicle to the famous Great Pyramids in Giza. Enjoy the changing views as your guides share fascinating stories and noteworthy facts along the way.
Arrive on site to a panoramic view of the pyramids of Cheops, Mykerinus and Chephren. These magnificent structures were believed to have been built as tombs and storage houses for deceased ancient Pharaohs to perform their duties as kings of the dead. Here you will also see the limestone statue of the Great Sphinx and the Valley Temple which served several functions including serving as the main entrance to the pyramid complex and connecting the area to the Nile. Take a few minutes to close your eyes, imagine what constructing those buildings were like, then take plenty of photos before heading to a restaurant to enjoy a delicious lunch while overlooking the Nile.
From there you will board a traditional felucca sailing boat for a 30-minute ride down the Nile with spectacular views of Cairo from the water. Conclude your tour with an optional stop at the traditional bazaars as you make your way back to port.
