After enjoying a buffet breakfast at our hotel, you'll be met by a certified tour guide who will take you on a tour of the Giza Pyramids area. Your tour will make you appreciate Egyptian history in a whole new way, and your personal tour guide will do his best to answer any questions you have throughout the tour.
King Cheops was the son of Snefru, who was a great builder himself. His father, Snefru, also built the middle pyramid in Giza, and his grandfather, Mycerinus, had the smallest yet not the least significant pyramid that you will see from the plateau while having an optional camel ride in the Giza Pyramids.
Down in the Valley of King Chephren, you can see the royal mummified body of King Chephren. And nearby, on the great Sphinx statue, you can see the carved likeness of a man-headed lion. This is an amazing place to visit!
If you're interested in ancient Egyptian art, you'll love visiting Saqqara—200 years older than the Giza Necropolis and home to some of the finest tombs in the country. Not to mention, the tomb of Kagemni, the vizier of justice and son-in-law of King Teti, is definitely worth a visit.
Let's move on to Mit Rahina, where you'll find an open-air museum full of interesting artifacts from different epochs in ancient Egyptian history. Among these are the alabaster sphinx of Memphis, one of the largest in Egypt, and the gigantic statue of Ramses II, one of the most important kings during the 18th dynasty. Lunch will be a great way to enjoy all the sights and sounds this amazing site has to offer.
