Have some time during your layover in Cairo? Visit the pyramids! After your pick-up from Cairo International Airport, an expert tour guide will take you to the Giza Pyramids in a private air-conditioned vehicle. Spend time exploring the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Chephren Pyramid, and the Mykerinos Pyramid. If you want to get inside any of the pyramids, all you have to do is buy the ticket - your tour guide can even help you secure these. If you have time for a camel ride around the Great Pyramid, your guide can arrange for that too. End your tour to the Giza Pyramids with a visit to the Valley Temple, famous for being a place of mummification. This is also where the dead body of Pharaoh Khafre or Chephren was mummified. It is also close to the Sphinx statue. Don't miss out on taking photographs while you're here! Later, head to Cairo's city center and enjoy a 1-hour felucca ride on the Nile. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off back at Cairo International Airport.

Note: This tour could be shared with others if there are other guests booked on the same date.
