It is a childhood dream for millions of people in this world, especially for those who studied about them when they were little kids. Did you ever dream of visiting those great structures on a day tour? Is it possible to visit the most famous pyramids in one day?

The answer is of course YES. With Your Egypt Tours, you will visit the Giza pyramids and Sphinx, and the Step pyramid of Sakkara even if you stay in Alexandria.

 Discover the magic of Giza city on a day tour and explore the famous Giza pyramids area and Sphinx. You will start visiting the symbol of Eternity and the only wonder that still survives among the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Great Pyramid of Cheops(Khufu). It is certainly one of the most important monuments of ancient Egypt. A masterpiece of fabricated structure and architecture, you will be overwhelmed by the huge size of its blocks, the height, and the age that exceeded 4600 years.

While you stare at this great monument, your guide will explain fully the history of the area including the other pyramids, of Chephren and Mycerinus, answer all your questions and give you free time for photography.

Next to the Sphinx area, you will visit the valley temple where you will learn about mummification in ancient Egypt.

The next stop will be at Sakkara, another great archeological site where the famous and multi-titled architect Imhotep built the oldest pyramid in Egypt. The first stone structure is 4800 years and was erected in the form of huge solid steps on top of each. (The name Step Pyramid is quite suitable).
