Shortly after breakfast your guide and driver fetch you from your hotel and then you drive to Giza to see one of the world’s most famous tourist attractions.

Camel rides from the pyramids to the Sphinx are available for those who want to enjoy an even more authentic experience.

It is also possible to enter one or more of the pyramids but this requires additional tickets which are not included in the price of our tours.

On arrival at Edfu, a traditional horse-drawn carriage will take you for a scenic ride through the town to see the ancient Temple of Horus.
