Tours in and around Cairo
Egypt's pyramids:This is a full day starting with Sakkara. Sakkara is a vast, ancient burial ground in Egypt, featuring the world's oldest standing pyramid .The area is filled with tombs and remains of temples to be explored. After visiting Sakkara we will move down the road a few kilometers to Dashure. The Pyramids of Dahshure always evoke in me a great part of the history of the pyramids. You can't understand how the ancient Egyptians built the Great Pyramids without going there. Dahshure is the home to 2 more important pyramids, and several others that are nearly ruins now.

The two that remain are the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid. The Red Pyramid is the 2nd largest pyramid in Egypt and it is open for you to go inside. It is as good as the ones in Giza and the best part is that few tourists bother to travel out to Dashure so it is nearly empty when you go in. Finally we will come back up to Giza to see the 3 most famous pyramids, the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the only survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Pyramids of Chefren, Mycerinus, and the famous Sphinx who is Giza’s guardian. To the east of the legendary Sphinx lies the museum housing the Solar Boat. This is the oldest boat on earth, the 141-foot-long funerary boat of King Cheops.

Camel or horseback riding around the pyramids of Giza: This can be piggy-backed onto the day at the pyramids if energy levels allow, or it can be done on a separate morning or afternoon. This is a fun trip around in the dunes south of the pyramids either on horseback or camels.
We can start your day by setting off on our camels at dawn, watching the sun rise in the dessert as the pyramids come into view out of the morning haze. If you are not a morning person, camping at sunset will be almost the same. If you would like a full desert experience, camping overnight in the desert will be an unforgettable experience. Lunch or dinner picnics are also available.
