The Sphinx, the Valley temple and Saladin

Private tour in Giza

Tour Price : $170 Duration : 8 hours Languages: english and arabic

With the abundance of different private tours in Egypt it may sometimes be a bit problematic to choose the right one. On the other hand, it’s great when you have plenty of things to choose from that aren’t all identical. After all, there are so many fascinating places in Cairo and around the city that following the same standard route is impossible unless you have at least a week at your disposal. However, if you’ve already seen some of the major attractions during your previous visits to the capital, or just want to explore the less populated sites, this tour is just for you.

We first start with the Giza Necropolis, but the Great Pyramid of Giza are not our destination. Instead we’ll focus on the Khafre Pyramid complex, which is most notable for the Great Sphinx of Giza. This peculiar statue is one of the symbolic ancient artifacts strongly associated with Egypt and its history is even more fascinating. We’ll also stop by the Valley Temple, which is a part of the complex. If you’re willing, the tour can be customized so that the Great Pyramids will also be included.

After exploring the ancient side of Egypt we’ll go to its relatively newer part, which is the Saladin Citadel (Cairo Citadel). This formidable exhibit of classic Arabic architecture is the heart of the Islamic part of Cairo and is the pivot point to many of its most famous mosques and other sites of the Muslim culture. We’ll explore the Citadel and the most picturesque Mosque of Muhammad Ali, built in the classic Ottoman style. It will provide a great contrast with the first part of the tour as there’s a several thousand year gap between the structures we’ll visit during this excursion.

Contact me in advance when booking the tour for additional options available with this tour. We can customize the route and include other landmarks upon request only when the booking is being made.
