1. Cairo: Pyramids Quad Bike Adventure & Optional Camel Ride

Explore Egypt's ancient pyramids, including the Great Pyramid of Giza and the world-famous Great Sphinx of Giza on this tour with a professional guide. Glide along the desert atop your quad and later enjoy an optional camel ride. After pickup from your accommodations in Cairo or Giza, enjoy an air-conditioned ride to the Pyramid area. On arrival, hop on a quad and set off to explore the great Pyramids up close. Ride your quad around the pyramids and admire the grandeur of the Pyramids of Cheops, Mykerinus, and Chephren from outside the Pyramid Area. Then head to Sahara City, a place tourists seldom go. When you get there, enjoy a refreshing welcome with traditional tea. You'll also get a bottle of mineral water or a soft drink while you take a short rest at the top of the desert. Then, after returning your quad, get ready to enjoy your optional camel ride. Explore the area in the more ancient and traditional way on the back of a camel. You will roam around the area at a much slower pace for a completely different experience. Admire the endurance of the ancient edifices that have stood for thousands of years and see the iconic Great Sphinx of Giza. At the end of your combo tour, enjoy a comfortable ride back to your accommodations in Cairo or Giza.

This was our second booking with OceanAir and once again, could not be happier!! Our tour guide Rami was the best! Such good energy, so kind, funny and accommodating. He arrived on time, with snacks and refreshments to greet us in the morning. He escorted us to both excursions and was happy to tag along for the ride to ensure we felt comfortable having a friend with us. He made sure we were taken care of throughout the day, kept us well refreshed and provided anything we needed. He made our experience that more special by making a few unexpected stops that he knew we would personally love, and ended up being our favourite part of the trip! I am oh so grateful to have had him arrange this excursion and will most definitely be booking again in the future!

Amazing experience! Firstly, Rania made it very easy to make the booking and tailored the day exactly to our needs. She’s always available by phone for any questions which really helped. Booked the pyramid tour followed by quad biking. Recommend both highly, had an amazing time with Mostafa our guide who was really friendly and informative. Overall can’t fault the experience at all- would definitely recommend if you want peace of mind to enjoy the pyramids without any of the hassle.

Superb experience! The team was top notch. Amira our guide was very kind, attentive, patient and knew Egyptian history perfectly. She spoke French very well. Thanks to her. I recommend !
