Full description

Explore the best wonders of Ancient Egypt on this fully-guided tour with a female guide. Start the tour with pickup from your hotel or selected location in Cairo or Giza. Meet your local Egyptologist guide who will share her knowledge, provide assistance, and make you feel comfortable throughout the day. 

Start your tour at one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids. Gaze in awe at the magnificent Pyramids of Cheops, Mycerinus, and Chephren. Then, stop for a photo at the Great Sphinx. 

If the option is selected, visit inside the Great Pyramid before visiting the Valley Temple. Afterward, stop for a traditional Egyptian lunch.

Next, visit the Egyptian Museum where you can explore the vast collection of 250,000 ancient artifacts that date back about 5000 years. If you wish (and at your own cost), feel free to explore King Tutankhamun's Room, which holds a number of precious jewels and gold excavated from the tomb in 1920. 

Continue to the Khan El-Khalili Bazaar and soak up the atmosphere of the old city. Take a walk through this well-known market and marvel at the unique variety of souvenirs, antiques, and jewelry for sale. Finally, end the tour with a transfer back to your preferred location in Cairo.

Bossi was a wonderful guide! She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptian history, and enthusiastically answered all of our questions. The driver was capable and courteous. I felt safe and supported throughout. Small group allowed for a great flexibility and depth of exploration. The lunch food was wonderful. Long range pickup went well—did this tour during a layover and easily made my following flight.

Super, super day! I definitely recommend this tour for female travelers. Our guide was Esraa and she was lovely. She was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions and she was also friendly and genuinely kind and helpful. Esraa was very transparent about the tour and the agenda and gave us lots of options along the way. I also made two new friends on the tour! The day goes so quickly on this tour because it’s lots of fun! I highly recommend it.

I had a great experience with this tour, and would highly recommend to anyone (especially solo female travelers!) In my case, it was a private tour with a driver, where they pick you up at your accomodations. Amina, my tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable. You'll have the opportunity to visit the Pyramid Complex, some shops, the Egyptian Museum, and a Bazaar. If you're only in Cairo for a day or two, this is the best way to get to see several of Cairo's highlights in a day! Some of the shops we visited I did feel pressured to buy things by the shop assistants, so if that sort of thing bothers you, keep in mind that you aren't obligated to buy anything. Overall, this is the best tour to take in Cairo, and I felt comfortable and safe the whole time.
