Just the PyramidsVisit the highlights of Cairo at a more leisurely pace.

Step back thousands of years as you view some of the most mysterious structures on earth, the Pyramids of Giza. You’ll be driven to an elevated site that provides a magnificent panoramic view of the 3 largest pyramids. The mightiest and most massive, the Great Pyramid of Cheops, is the only remaining Wonder of the Ancient World. Walk up close to either Chephren or Mycerinus Pyramid to truly appreciate their size and amazing construction.

The ravages of nature and man have left the massive Sphinx battered, but unbowed. The lion’s body and head of a man rise from the vast desert sands near the pyramids as an incredible monument to the days of the pharaohs.

A short stop will be made at a Papyrus Institute, where the art of paper making from reeds, discovered by the Ancient Egyptians, will be demonstrated for you.

Notes: Guests wishing to ride a camel at the Pyramids must negotiate the price with the camel driver. Guests must not pay until after the ride or once they are back down on the ground. An agreed fee for a very short ride must not exceed US$5.00. Lean forward when the animal goes up and lean back when animal kneels down. Make sure you listen to the driver’s instructions for a safe ride.
Many vendors sell all sorts of souvenirs at the Pyramids, especially at the Western Plateau. What is being sold as papyrus at extremely cheap prices are nothing but painted banana leaves. Guests must be aware of great bargains at great prices! Please consult and seek the advice of your tour guide if you are not sure.
