The step pyramid still remains til this day, and dates back to 2700 BC, where the idea of building pyramids originated.

The oldest architectural mistake

Then we will drive to Dahshour to see advanced techniques that were used in ancient Egypt in building pyramids. There we will see the bent pyramid, the oldest architectural mistake on earth that still remains till this day. Then, move to the red pyramid of king Senefru, the builder of the 1st complete pyramid in Egypt dating back to the 26th century BC.

2:00 pm

Memphis

Later on we will visit Memphis, the oldest capital in ancient Egypt, and visit the ruins of Memphis home of our famous open air museum and the giant statue of Ramses the 2nd. We will also visit the second biggest sphinx in Egypt of the famous queen Hatshepsut which is made out of alabaster. Then, move on to a local restaurant to enjoy a traditional Egyptian meal.

3:00 pm

Farewell

Drop off at your hotel and say our farewells.

More about Giza

There are three main Pyramids here, which were built in the 4th Dynasty (circa 4650 B.C). The Pyramids of Ancient Egypt were built as tombs for Kings (and Queens), and it was the exclusive privilege to have a Pyramid tomb. However, this tradition only applied in the Old and Middle Kingdoms. Today there are more than 115 Pyramids in Egypt; the most famous ones are those at Giza.

More about Sakkara

Sakkara is one of the most extensive archaeological sites in Egypt, it was the cemetery for Memphis the capital of ancient Egypt. Yet again it is one of the very virgin archaeological sites. despite the fact that we found so many monuments in Sakkara .

    Sameh is a qualified Egyptologist and brings things to life with rich stories and humour. We had a wonderful time and actively recommend Sameh to friends travelling through Cairo or across Upper and Lower Egypt!
