The last standing of the Seven Ancient Wonders, the Pyramids of Giza need little introduction. Each year, millions of visitors flock to see these iconic monoliths up close – but few have the chance to dine in their shadow.
Your evening experience begins with an ascent to the pyramids, taking you across the Giza Plateau. As darkness falls, the Sound and Light show illuminates the pyramids in spectacular fashion. Flaming torches light your path to a sultan’s tent set up just for you.
You arrive to a warm reception: white-uniformed guards usher you along a red carpet towards the tent, whose cascades of white, gold and blue fabric enclose plush oriental carpets and sumptuous furnishings. Inside, the aroma of incense perfumes the air, which is cooled by peacock-feather fans and filled with delicate music courtesy of Egypt’s premiere harpist.
Once seated, indulge in a five-star banquet served on brass trays by uniformed waiters. Your menu includes mezze appetisers, aromatic rice, barbecued meats and honey-soaked pastries. A fully equipped bar quenches your thirst with exotic juices, alcoholic drinks and after-dinner coffee. Your atmospheric evening is rounded off with entertainment: folkloric dance, whirling dervishes, Nubian fortune telling and henna painting.
This experience is only available to book as part of an A&K tailor-made holiday.
