What You Can Expect

Start your tour with pickup in the morning from your hotel in either Cairo or Giza by our Egyptologist guide.

First head to Sakkara Pyramid, located only 27 km southwest away from Cairo; see the Step Pyramid which was built for king Djoser. It is considered an important development in the process of the pyramid evolution, which were made from the simple mastaba to its widely known form.

Then visit Dahshur Pyramids, Bent and Red Pyramid. Dahshur area is a royal necropolis located in the desert on the West Bank of the Nile approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) south of Cairo. It is known chiefly for several Pyramids, two of which are among the oldest, largest and best preserved in Egypt, built from 2613–2589 BCE.

Then Visit Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt, where the colossal statue of Ramses II and the great Alabaster Sphinx are. This City dates back to 2.925 B.C.

Transfer back to your hotel in central Cairo or Giza, where you tour ends.
