Giza Pyramids

The Pyramids of Giza are the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still preserved today, and therefore one of the most famous buildings in the world. The three major pyramids at Giza include the Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Mycrinus.

Queen Pyramids

Some other smaller secondary pyramids, where the women of the pharaohs were buried, such as working villages, temples, and tombs.

Great Sphinx statue in Giza

The Great Sphinx of Giza is a giant Egyptian statue. It was carved from limestone in the Giza plateau and represented a recumbent lion with a human head and the so-called veil of the mongoose. Initially, the Sphinx was painted red ocher and had a chin beard, but this fell into antiquity.

Valley Temple

Next, see the valley temple used to cleanse the king's mummy before burial and to perform the king's embalming process.

Saqqara Pyramid

We will move to Saqqara, a pyramidal complex that, like Giza, is part of the necropolis of Memphis. We will see one of the first pyramids built, which served as a model for all those made later. The step pyramid of Djoser has a rectangular base and is about 60 meters high; and was part of a ceremonial complex built around 2650 BC for the pharaoh Djoser by Imhotep, the most famous Egyptian architect.

Lunch

At the end of the visit to the Pyramids of Giza, we will take a break and take the opportunity to eat and recharge. Lunch will be in a restaurant and Egyptian food (drinks not included).

Ancient Memphis, Egypt

After Saqqara, we will make the last part of our journey. We will head to Memphis, the capital of the ancient empire between 3100 and 2040 BC and the site of the coronation of all the pharaohs of the kingdom.

By tradition, Narmer founded the city of Memphis and is considered the first pharaoh. The city is located in the Nile Delta, between Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt, the two regions into which the country was divided. In 1820, a colossal statue of one of the most famous pharaohs, Ramses II, who ruled from 1279 to 1213 BC, was found in the Great Temple of Ptah near Memphis. This pink granite statue is more than 11 meters high and weighs more than 80 tons. For a while, it was located in the center of Cairo, but erosion badly damaged it, and it was moved to Memphis, where it is displayed in a covered area for its protection.

Bent Pyramid

Dahshur is a relatively isolated place south of Giza. Few tourists visit Dahshur, even though its two pyramids are rather impressive. The curved pyramid is 90 meters high and is the fourth largest pyramid in Egypt. It was built by Sneferu, the father of Khufu (builder of the Great Pyramid).

Red Pyramid

The Red Pyramid's construction represents a detailed development indicating the transition from a stepped pyramid, such as the pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara, to a pyramid with ecclesiastical lines. The red pyramid is 105 m high, and the entrance is red granite.

After the tour, we will take you back to the hotel.
