Visiting and seeing the pyramids of Egypt is a childhood dream for millions of people in this world especially for those who studied about them when they were little kids. Did you ever dream of visiting those great structures on a day tour? Is it possible to visit the most famous pyramids in one day?
The answer is of course YES. With Your Egypt Tours, you will visit the Giza pyramids and Sphinx, the Step pyramid of Zoser
Discover the magic of Giza city on a day tour and explore the famous Giza pyramids area and Sphinx. You will start visiting the symbol of Eternity and the only wonder that still survives among the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Great Pyramid of Cheops(Khufu). It is certainly one of the most important monuments of ancient Egypt. A masterpiece of fabricated structure and architecture, you will be overwhelmed by the huge size of its blocks, the height, and the age that exceeded 4600 years.
While you stare at this great monument, your guide will explain fully the history of all the area including the other pyramids, of Chephren and Mycerinus, answer all your questions and give you free time for photography. You will have the chance to take pictures of the area including all the pyramids from the panorama area.).
You will spend more than two hours in the area so that you can have enough time to do some extras like entering one of the pyramids chambers or you may like to have fun and explore the edge of the desert by having a camel ride around the area. (For extra cost).
Moving to the Sphinx area where you will spend some time exploring this monolith statue, which symbolizes the power and wisdom of the pharaoh as the statue, was carved as a lion body and the head of the pharaoh. Next to the Sphinx area, you will visit the valley temple where you will learn about mummification in ancient Egypt.
The next stop will be at Sakkara, another great archeological site where the famous and multi-titled architect Imhotep built the oldest pyramid in Egypt. The first stone structure is 4800 years and was erected in the form of huge solid steps on top of each. (The name Step Pyramid is quite suitable).
Your tour guide will accompany you inside one of the tombs of the nobles (tomb of Kagmini) to see murals reflecting daily life activities in ancient Egypt. You may choose to go inside the pyramid of Teti with its impressive pyramid texts written in Hieroglyphics that date back to more than 4000 years

I utilized Your Egypt Tours for a one day trip to the Giza pyramids, the Sphinx and Sakkara. It was all organised last minute but the attention to detail was amazing. The guide was excellent and truly made sure that I enjoyed my tour - despite being alone. Can greatly recommend Your Egypt Tours
I had an incredible experience with Your Egypt Tours. From the reliable confirmation process, to the pick-up, and of course, the highly knowledgeable, well-spoken and friendly tour guide. These guys were so great at helping show me the sites and history of Egypt. I would highly recommend using them. They really care about providing the best experience and are passionate about these beautiful landmarks.
This past December my boyfriend and I had had the opportunity to visit Giza and fulfill a lifetime dream of seeing the 3 Pyramids and Sphinx. Because we only had a short amount of time we decided to hire a private tour from Mamdouh and boy were we happy that we had him to show us around. Especially he took BEST picture of me kissing Sphinx which I really wanted to get. He did not need to do it but his friendly fun loving character could not help making our trip awesome!!! One of the Highlights was riding on the camels overlooking 3 pyramids. It was really FUN!!! Wow we really really Enjoyed learning about ancient history from him. We highly recommend him as your tour guide!!!
