Itinerary

Meet our Cairo top tours representative according to the agreed pick-up time to start your amazing Cairo day tour to Memphis and Saqqara which is one of our many Cairo excursions to explore the site where the first stone pyramid in history is standing, the Step Pyramid of King Djoser, the 2nd king of the 3rd ruling family during the old kingdom of the glorious ancient Egyptian history. Start your Sightseeing in Cairo when you arrive at the necropolis of Saqqara to enter the site from the original entrance thanks to the efforts of the French archaeologist Jean Philippe Lauer who spent 70 years restoring the monuments of the site of the Step Pyramid. The pyramid got its name because it started from a rectangular mastaba or base in which the burial chamber is 28 meters below, and the queen's burial chamber is 32 meters, then another 5 stories were added above each other to take the form of stairs.

Imhotep, the genius architect who designed the pyramid and held many titles during his lifetime, used the pillared stones exactly the same shape as the original material used by the early Egyptians during that time (reeds-palm trees-wood). Everything that Imhotep built here is destined for the concept of the afterlife, as the soul of the deceased pharaoh could continue to the sky with the support of the offerings and the burial rituals such as the sacred pyramid text. A lot of fancy silver and brass objects were found under the pyramid and were used as offering supports, now are displayed inside the museum of Imhotep on your way out of the Saqqara archaeological site.

You will have access to one of the pyramids of the 6th dynasty kings, the Pyramid of Teti, and the tomb of his son in law Kagemni which is one of the best-preserved tombs of the nobles at Saqqara, inside, you will see different carvings and inscriptions for the daily life scenes like hunting and offering to the gods of ancient Egypt. The pyramid of King Teti is not the perfect-shaped pyramid we are familiar with, but most of a hill above the ground level with a burial shaft underneath.

Have your pleasant lunch in a restaurant in Saqqara before heading now to discover the artifacts displayed in the museum of the most ancient capital of Egypt from 5000 years ago, the ancient city of Memphis, you will see a lot of statues that will amaze you by the high quality of art in ancient Egypt and especially the alabaster sphinx, which is the 2nd biggest among all the sphinxes in ancient Egypt after the Great Sphinx in Giza which is usually visited during the tour to Giza Pyramids, you will also see the huge colossal statue of King Ramses II who ruled Egypt during the new kingdom, the statue is partially broken from the legs but reflects how ancient Egyptian artisans had great knowledge of anatomy.

You will be transferred back to your hotel or Cairo airport after completing your exciting Saqqara and Memphis tours from Cairo.

The proportionately higher prices for people traveling alone (Solo Travelers) mostly result from the higher overnight-room costs, as normally almost all hotel rooms are structured for 2 people who can each assume half of the overnight costs. This also applies to flat-rate travel. The hotels would not benefit from offering a reduction to solo travelers when the rooms could be occupied by 2 persons at a normal price. During the low season, some hotels lower the prices as a reason for the decreased demand since they have a large number of beds when the demand is not too high.
Prices vary throughout the year depending on the offer and request. During the summer and especially during the holidays that are considered high seasons like the Christma and New Year holidays, Easter holidays, and special events such as sports championship or destinations that are very popular and recent. Therefore tour operators can demand higher prices according to the increasing cost of accommodation and/ or implementation.
Most trips can also be booked for a shorter or longer period. However, if, for example, your departure time is changed, trips lasting 5 or 10 days will not be possible, that’s why we always request the flight details before proceeding with the booking, just to make sure the last suggested itinerary is fit for both the traveler and the operator.
