As you arrive at the outskirts of Cairo, your tour will proceed to the Giza Plateau to discover the only remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, the Pyramids of Giza. It is here that three pharaohs, Cheops, his son Chephren and grandson Mykerinus, erected grand tombs to protect their bodies and their royal treasure as well. Next your excursion takes you to the guardian of the mortuary complex, the mysterious Sphinx. Carved out of a solid natural rock around 2650 B.C., the Sphinx has the head of a man, body of a lion and stretches out to a length of 240 feet. ; The tour also includes a visit to the Valley Temple, which belongs to the Pyramids of Chephren.
