After enjoying your breakfast at the hotel, your tour guide will meet you to start your Cairo day tour to Giza Pyramids, Dahshur, and Memphis. The first stop is the Giza Pyramids, where you will be awe-struck by the sheer size of these massive structures. They were constructed during the old kingdom of ancient Egypt, over 4500 years ago, by some of the most influential kings and rulers of that time. These pyramids were built to showcase the incredible accomplishments made possible by the Nile River.
See the Pyramid of Khufu, also known as the Great Pyramid of King Cheops, is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. Built during the 26th century BC, it is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Despite erosion reducing its height from 146 to 138 meters, it remains an incredible feat of ancient engineering and a must-visit attraction in Egypt.
Continue your exciting Cairo tours by visiting the ancient city of Memphis, known as Mit Rahina, which was once the oldest capital of Egypt. Here, you'll see an open-air museum featuring the second-largest sphinx made of alabaster and a colossal statue of King Ramses II, one of the most powerful kings of the New Kingdom era.
Next, you'll be transferred to the Dahshur Archaeological site to see the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid, constructed for King Snefru, the father of King Cheops. The Bent Pyramid is unique because it still retains a large percentage of its outer casing material, while the Red Pyramid is considered the first perfect-shaped pyramid in Egypt due to the reddish color of its limestone blocks.
Before returning to your hotel, you'll enjoy a gourmet lunch at a high-quality restaurant overlooking the pyramids of Giza. Don't miss out on this incredible tour, which includes breakfast and lunch.
