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.

    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.
