Why take this tour?

Tour the sole survivor of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids of Giza still live up to more than 4, 000 years of hype. Let me answer the question 'How were they built, and why? Let me tell you in details about their extraordinary shape, geometry and age rendering them somehow alien constructions. The oldest and biggest pyramid is that of Khufu (tallest), and you can go inside this one if you don't suffer from claustrophobia. Explore the 2 other Pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure. Proceed to gaze up at the colossal Sphinx, the enigmatic statue of a human-headed lion that guards the pyramids and, if you wish, visit the Solar Boat Museum. Admire the beautiful wooden boat, once used to transport Khufu's body to the site, and learn how its remnants were discovered and reassembled. Then, head inside Cairo's Egyptian Museum, home to some 120, 000 incredible ancient artifacts and treasures of Tutankhamun. Finish with a visit to Khan el-Khalili bazaar, Cairo's main souk.

Nahla & Ahmed founded Egypt Traveluxe the same time as Uprising in Egypt in 2011. As tour guides Nahla & Ahmed were frustrated by prescribed vanilla group tours, tourism tricks, hidden costs and detours. Nahla & Ahmed decided to start something they would be proud to put their name on, something that showed people the best of Egypt. Egypt Traveluxe founders and directors Nahla & Ahmed were a guides but were frustrated that travelers only scratched the surface of Egypt. Nahla & Ahmed knew there was so much to see and experience outside the group tour experience. Back then all tours were all fixed, and travelers had zero flexibility to create a trip around their interests. Nahla & Ahmed wanted to get people off the beaten track, of the guidebook, out of sterile parks, official attractions, and beyond the typical tour routes. They wanted to remove detours to touristy stops , and instead take people to try some authentic food at the kind of restaurants his local and friends loved ...
