Travellers yearning to step back in time (or play at Indiana Jones) should take a trip to remarkable city of Giza, on the west banks of the Nile near Cairo.

Once you’ve checked the 3 pyramids off your must-see list (remember to be respectful – it’s easy to forget that they’re Royal Mausoleums), head to the Great Sphinx. Both are easily accessible, and are the only remaining Wonders of the Ancient World. We recommend hiring a knowledgeable English-speaking guide to get the most out of the experience, but do this in advance (our travel teams can help you) to avoid haggling with particularly forceful touts.

Linked inextricably with the larger Cairo, on its doorstep, it is conceivable to stay in Giza and not venture into Egypt’s capital but not many do. Once you’ve had your fill of monuments, museums and mausoleums, you’d be forgiven for venturing into the busier city, teeming with life and humanity, for a refreshing change of pace.

Note: we always recommend checking the latest travel and safety updates via the Foreign Office before booking any holiday -
