Before beginning your Cairo Day Tours to the Giza Pyramids, Memphis, and Saqqara, have your breakfast at the hotel.
You will be escorted by our tour guide to the Giza pyramids where you can view the Great Pyramid of Cheops as well as the pyramids of Chephren and Mycerinus. Then travel to the Valley Temple of Monarch Chephren, where his royal corpse had been mummified before burial, where you will see the Great Sphinx, the Pharaoh's head, and the body of a lion to symbolise the might and wisdom of the king. Your guide will go over each step of the mummification process with you.
Lunchtime has arrived! After stopping for lunch, which will be provided at a high-quality restaurant, you'll be taken to Sakkara to see the Step Pyramid of King Zoser, which is thought to be the oldest man-built structure constructed completely of stone in the whole world (Djoser Pyramid). Additionally, you will see the Kagemni tomb, one of the noble tombs at Sakkara owned by the son-in-law of King Teti, as well as the pyramid of Teti, which has the most spectacular interior of all the accessible pyramids of Egypt (neither of which require an additional ticket). These sites allow you to see daily life scenes from ancient Egypt with all of its activities inscribed and painted on the walls and corridors of the tombs.
After that, we'll transport you to Memphis, which is only 20 minutes away from Saqqara and includes an outdoor museum where you can see sculptures and other relics from the ancient city of the pharaohs, including the enormous statue of Ramses II and the alabaster sphinx constructed from an eighty-ton marble block.
After your trip is done, you'll be taken back to your hotel for the night.
