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. After this visit,
Explore the treasures of the Egyptian museum (opened in 1902) and look at amazing monuments and artifacts in its different halls on a guided tour. Although the museum has tens of thousands of artifacts in this short tour, your Egyptologist guide will focus on the highlights and masterpieces of the museum
Visit the Tut Ankh Amun Wing on the first floor and see his wonderful collection of historically important artwork. The treasures are mainly golden and they cover a quite large section of the museum. This area of the museum includes significant statues, furniture, and gold sculptures. After enjoying the guided part of the tour, take some free time to browse the museum.
End up this impressive tour with your visit to Khan El Khalili market where all products of Egyptian souvenirs are available in different qualities. You are invited to have a local drink while sitting with your guide at El Fishawy coffee shop: the oldest one in Cairo. When having free time to browse the market put the advice of your guide into consideration.

We had a trip to Cairo explicitly to see the Pyramids. We booked the "Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Egyptian Museum & Khan el-Khalili Bazaar full-day tour" and were very pleased with the experience. Our guide, Hussein, was very knowledgeable and was working on a PhD in Egyptian History so he was definitely a wealth of information on the area. We were able to ride a camel and enter the Pyramids.
Would definitely recommend anyone to come to Egypt to see the sights and use this tour company!
I had a one-day tour Cairo in March, and it was AMAZING! My guide, Shereif, was very very knowledgeable. In our one-day tour, we went to the pyramids, Sphinx, and Cairo museum. All the details were handled, and I never felt rushed. Clearly, this company has very high expectations for customer satisfaction! I enjoyed it so much that I can't wait to go back and have another day trip with Sherief!

My husband & I visited Cairo end July 2013 and enjoyed a wonderful day during which we visited the Pyramids, Egyptian Museum, city tour and the Sound & Light Show. From the time of booking with Mona to the actual tour with Mamdouh, everything was handled in a professional & friendly manner. Mamdouh was knowledge & enthusiastic and we thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about Egypt. We would strongly encourage everyone to visit Egypt once the situation improves as there is so much to see & experience and Your Egypt Tours will make that experience even more enjoyable!

My family and I are doing an around the world trip. Cairo being our 4th country and by far our favorite thanks to your Egypt tours. Our guide sherief was unbelievable. He spoke English better than some Americans. While here we visited they pyramids, museums and the old and new Cairo. His knowledge of these places far exceeded our expectation.
He not only was a pillar of knowledge but a pleasure to spend time with. When this company says it aims to please they are not kidding. Our family wanted Starbucks before one of our tours. Sherief and the driver went out of their way to make sure we had Starbucks. All you have to do is ask and they will fulfill all your needs. I was going to wait until I arrived home to write this review, however I felt it necessary to share our experience with others now.
If you are looking for a tour company, you do not want but need your Egypt tours to assist you.
Egypt must be included in any global travel
Media coverage would suggest that the current time is not suitable for visiting/touring Egypt. Suggestions that travel cannot be made safely is the opposite of the truth based on our recent experience. From the most professional handling of queries to the specific guiding of a small group tour to the Giza pyramids, "Your Egypt Tours" was found to be most competent and is to highly recommended especially our guide Mina Malak ( "the most handsome guy in Egypt"). The day-long trip from Port Said to Cairo was a long journey but was made that more interesting from the most informative and knowledgeable commentary given Mina and his continual supply of snacks. An excellent lunch was provided and was found to be most acceptable. The visits to the Egyptian museum and the papyrus studio were very informative and certainly complemented the actual viewing of the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx. Safety was never considered an issue, although the occasional military personnel were spotted on the highway attending to normal duties. The luxury of a small group tour was much appreciated and the particular attention to several associated details showed the high degree of professionalism provided by 'Your Egypt Tours'. Any further possible trips to Egypt would most definitely include this tour company.

Organized a tour of the Pyramids, Egyptian Museum and Bazaar with lunch for my partner and I on 9 Jan.
Everything was perfect with a kind guide Beko and an excellent driver. The vehicle was clean and comfortable and we felt like V.I.P's.
We spent, as much time or as little time as we wanted at all the attractions and Beko was our photographer also.
The tour was v good value for the length of the day and we felt very safe in the hands of our driver who was very polite.
We had a buffet lunch included at a local restaurant, which was clean, and the food was hot and edible.
we paid in U.S Dollars which I had obtained in the U.K. On speaking to the tour owner, we could have paid in Sterling but this was not made clear when we booked.
