Description

I am an Egyptologist and would love to share the mysteries and wonders of the the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx on a real time walking tour. We will start from the Great Pyramid of King Cheops, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Going around it, you will see the Queen's Pyramids as well. 

Then, I will head towards the Pyramid of King Chephren and the Pyramid of King Mekyrenos and tell you interesting facts about them on the way. On arriving there, you will get the panoramic views of the pyramids aligned together. 

Finally, we will drive to the Sphinx where you will see the Valley Temple, which is dedicated to mummification. Our last stop will be at the Great Sphinx where you will get to know the meaning of its name, the myths behind its broken nose, and many other interesting facts.

Tour Reviews
  • Khaled has a good sense of humour to make the entire digital experience a tad more warm. What's great about a virtual experience is that we get to see Giza through his lens, and get immediate response to any questions that pops up (unlike watching a vlog on youtube).

  • We had a lovely virtual tour by Khaled for my father’s 75th birthday. Khaled is articulate, knowledgeable, he interacts very well with people ( which is not always easy on zoom calls with multiple screens ). He made it extra special for my father by making it personal - he had done a hieroglyph of my father’s name ! He had thought through the tour - so it didn’t feel rushed but also covered all the important places; the technology worked very well; the interactivity was amazing - he answered everyone’s questions - the kids and the adults ! Overall - highly recommend Khaled . We look forward to meeting him in person when we visit Egypt and having him as our guide

  • Khaled was our guide for Pyramids and Sphinx for a birthday celebration of my Grandfather. He did a great job, explaining the background to all the kids also and showed us around every thing. He got a local camel man to wish in Arabic and in Hindi too! He was fun and the tour worked very well

  • Khaled gave me and my family this tour as part of my 75th birthday celebration. We had a great time. He explained the background and history patiently to my grandchildren. He also made the effort to learn how to wish me in my native language Hindi! The system held up quite well and we were able to hear him well. He drove over to Sphinx and showed us around that area as well. Strongly recommended.

    Very nice Specially Mr. Khalid who explained very well.

  • Ruth Stephens

    We have just completed our first tour with Tour HQ with family around the world and what a wonderful experience we had with Khaled at the Pyramids of Giza. Khaled was professional and highly informative, but he was also humorous and very kind. He was very happy to interact with us and answer any questions we had including those from our children. Khaled has provided us with an experience and information that we'll never forget. A benefit to this tour during this time of pandemic is that there were very few tourists and the experience was as if we had the whole pyramids to ourselves. Needless to say, I highly recommend this fabulous tour and wonderful host. Thank you Khaled.

    The next best thing of physically going to Egypt and the pyramids is to watch it virtually with Khaled. Khaled has very good knowledge of the area , pyramids and the Sphinx. He took us on a drive with him around the area and explained in great detail including answering all our questions! Even though the cell signal gets patchy at places - khaled quickly reconnected and never felt us feel away! It was a first time experience of doing a virtual tour on Zoom but it was a really exceptional experience - highly recommended !

    Excellent tour by Khaled, really enjoyed that it was informative but also conversational. Khaled is an excellent Egyptologist taking the audience through an immersive experience of online tour of Giza pyramids.

    Excellent Tour!

  • James Anderson

    I would like to congratulate you on the excellent Tour of the Pyramids.
    I watched in the company of my family here in Melbourne, Australia, and in Switzerland.
    The guide, Khalid, is a highly intelligent and personable man with great gifts of presentation and teaching.
    He speaks excellent English and I believe was responsible for my enjoyment of the tour and now my enhanced understanding of the history of ancient Egypt.
    Thanks again, Khalid, and the tour organisers,
    James Anderson

  • Charles Anderson

    Khalid was a magnificent guide - he did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the pyramids and did so in a manner which was easy to understand for the whole family. He did a great job of communicating across all the participants and we all felt like we were there, on site with him. This proved to be a really excellent, practical way of visiting one of the most interesting archaeological sites in the world. I cannot recommend this site and Khalid, as guide, enough!

  • Anne John

    It is an interesting online tour where tour guide Mr Khaled Ali drove his car and showed me the pyramids and the Sphinx. No time was wasted. Explanations were clear and he spoke good English which helps me to understand him well. The online tour is about an hour which suits me as I prefer tours that are concise and well organised.

  • charuhaslimaye

    It was a nice online experience to see Giza pyramids. Mr Khalid is very friendly and session was very interactive. Enjoyed the virtual tour .. !

  • wf

    The virtual tour is really interesting and an eye-opener for me and my family. We really enjoy but hopefully can do longer as we started to have the feel on it. However, other than that, Khaled did answer our question and wish next time can do the actual tour in Egypt!!! A must-go place!! Looking forward to it!!

  • med

    Had an online tour with Khaled for the Pyramids of Giza, though the tour was done via online, he provided an excellent insight about the pyramids and their history. It was a truly wonderful experience, learnt a lot and I look forward to the day when I can see the wonders of Egypt in person. Thank you very much, Khaled!

  • ananya

    The tour was short but he made the most of it, answering every question and giving the best view possible of all we saw. Informative, friendly and kept things interesting!

  • ashish

  • jole

    Thanks Khaled for the tour of the Pyramids and the Spinx - it was very informative and you clarified all my questions!

    Look forward to see you in Egypt some day :)

  • Kerry-Ann Rautenbach

    We joined Khaled today from Singapore on a virtual tour of the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx. It was an amazing experience and felt as if we were actually there! Khaled spoke clearly and was extremely knowledgeable and shared many interesting unknown facts about Ancient Egypt and the pyramids. We cannot wait to visit Egypt and see these beautiful structures up close! Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience with us from afar!

  • Chen Jiaying

    Great guide who gave a very thorough and easy to understand explanation of the background and tour. Guide also went up to the pyramid when I requested to go closer to be able to see its real height and entrance pathway. Thank you Khaled!
