Private Guided Day Tour to Giza and Saqqara from the Mena House Hotel

Can you do a tour visit to the Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara in just 9 hours and have as much fun as you should have if you’re spending days? Most definitely, yes! And this is something that our private guided day tour to Giza and Saqqara Pyramids can offer you.

As early said that this tour is a 9-hour tour, which means all the sightseeing you are doing is in 9 hours, and this is why we have scheduled an early 8 am departure from the Mena House Hotel.

From the hotel, you’d move straight to the Giza Necropolis to enjoy the glorious sights of some of the World famous archaeological sites in Giza of Egyptsuch as the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Pyramid of Khafre, and Pharaoh Menkuare.

Other sites to enjoy around the Giza Pyramids are the Great Sphinx which is a mystical statue that features the body of a lion and the head of a human, and which most of the time is the head of an Egyptian ruler.

Another site scheduled for you to visit on your Private Guided Day Tour is the Valley Temple of Mummification that is also known as the Valley Temple of Khafre. This Valley Temple was erected to prepare (embalm and dry) the body (mummy) of an Egyptian King and to purify the body.

After then, you will head to visit the Step Pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara. The Step Pyramid of Djoser is the first Pyramid erected in the Third Dynasty and was erected to bury King Djoser. Other sites in Saqqara include the tomb of Kagemni where you learn much about daily life in Ancient Egypt and symbols such as Ankh. Then you explore the interior of the pyramid of Teti with the Pyramid Texts on its walls.

This guided day tour includes other packages such as lunch, a 30 minutes ride on a camel, a drive in a private minivan that is Wi-Fi-enabled, and fully air-conditioned.
