Giza Pyramids

The Great Pyramids of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the most famous. The three main pyramids in Giza are the Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure. There are also some other pyramids in the area for the wives of kings.

The Great Sphinx of Giza

The Great Sphinx of Giza is the largest Egyptian sculpture ever. Carved in the limestone of the Giza Plateau, it depicts a lion with a human head wearing what is called a headdress. Over the centuries, the Sphinx has lost its chin and its original reddish color.

The Muhammad Ali Mosque was inaugurated in 1848 AD inside the Citadel of Salah al-Din. Turkish mosques inspired the construction of this mosque. It was built of limestone. The mosque has two minbars, and around the mosque’s dome, there are 6 medallions, including the names of God and Muhammad, the Messenger of God, and the names of the four rightly guided caliphs, who are Abu Bakr.

The “Trip To Giza Pyramids & Citadel And Old Cairo” excursion was an absolute highlight for our family of four and we had a great time. The tour was designed to be kid-friendly, and it included interesting games as well as information that kept our children interested and engaged the whole time. Our children were blown away by the sheer magnitude and beauty of the pyramids, which served as the trip’s most memorable stop. We had a great time seeing the old churches and synagogues in Old Cairo, another fascinating part of our trip to Egypt. The tour guide was fantastic with children, and he did everything in his power to ensure that everyone had an enjoyable and educational time.

Being a solo traveler, I was initially hesitant about joining a group tour, but the “Trip To Giza Pyramids & Citadel And Old Cairo” proved to be an excellent choice. The group was friendly and welcoming, and the tour guide was attentive to everyone’s needs. I was particularly impressed with the balance between guided tours and free time, which allowed me to explore at my own pace. The tour provided an in-depth understanding of Cairo’s rich history and culture, and I left feeling like I had truly experienced the city.

I’m a solo traveler, and I was a bit nervous about visiting Cairo on my own. But I’m so glad I booked this tour! My guide, Fatima, was amazing. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and made me feel safe and comfortable the entire time.

We visited the Giza Pyramids, the Citadel of Saladin, and Old Cairo. All of these attractions were incredible, and Fatima did a great job of explaining their history and significance. I especially enjoyed visiting the Khan El Khalili Bazaar, where I was able to buy some souvenirs for my friends and family back home.

Overall, I had an excellent experience on this tour. I would highly recommend it to any solo travelers who are visiting Cairo.
