Spend the day at one of the oldest of the 7 Wonders of the Anceint World that have long stood the test of time on an amazing tour of the Great Pyramids of Giza. On this 4-hour sightseeing tour of the most popular landmark in Egypt, you will explore the mysteries of the Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx in the Giza Plateau.

Next, you will head to the majestic statue of the Great Sphinx, gazing across the valley with the head of a man and the body of a lion. Before ending your tour of the pyramid complex, you will walk through the Valley Temple while your guide tells you more about how the site was created in 2,560-2,540 BC.  Get a glimpse into one of the most fascinating civilizations on this tour of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, which is one of the most incredible museums for Egyptian antiquities in the world!
