Your Giza Pyramids tour will make you passionate to know everything about the ancient Egyptian time, and your personal tour guide will do his best to cover all your questions throughout the tour while standing very close to the Great Pyramid of King Cheops, the 146 meters high structure which was built during the old kingdom, exactly the fourth dynasty by one of the greatest kings of ancient Egypt.

King Cheops (Khufu) was the son of Snefru who also owns 4 impressive pyramids, and the father of Chephren who built the middle pyramid in Giza and still retains the outer casing at the top end, and also was the grandfather of Mycerinus who has the smallest yet not the less significance pyramid that you will see from the plateau while having an optional camel ride in Giza Pyramids to see the glory of this epic land, the land of the pharaohs.

Move down to see the Valley Temple of King Chephren where his royal corpse was mummified to be preserved for the afterlife, and the great statue of the Sphinx which resembles power and intelligence by being carved on the shape of a man-headed lion.

Move now to the necropolis of Saqqara, 200 years older than the Giza Necropolis that contains the Step Pyramid complex of King Djoser of the 3rd dynasty and the Pyramid of King Teti who ruled the country during the 6th dynasty before the beginning of the 1st intermediate period. See the fine ancient Egyptian art when you enter one of the tombs of the nobles, the tomb of Kagemni who was the vizier of Justice, and the son-in-law of King Teti.

Now we will move to the site where the most ancient capital of Egypt used to be found, now known as Mit Rahina and considered an open-air museum that houses a lot of interesting artifacts that date back to different epochs of ancient Egyptian history from the old kingdom, middle kingdom, and the new kingdom. See the alabaster sphinx of Memphis which is the second biggest among all the sphinxes in Egypt, and the gigantic statue of Ramses II who was one of the most important kings during the 18th dynasty.

Enjoy your lunch on our way back to the hotel and overnight in Cairo.

Talking about Mohamed Ali, his brilliant alabaster mosque is located inside the citadel and is considered of the highest points in Cairo in which you can view the Giza Pyramids if the weather is clear.

They took refuge in a crypt in which later a church was built above it called now the Church of Abu Serga, also you will see the Hanging Church that is built above 2 towers of the ancient Roman fortress of Babylon. At the end of your Coptic tours in Cairo, you will enter the Synagogue of Ben Ezra which is one of the oldest Jewish synagogues in the Middle East.
