Morning Pickup from Your Hotel: Your archaeological adventure starts with a pickup from your hotel in Cairo or Giza. Travel in comfort in our air-conditioned vehicle as your Egyptologist guide shares insights into Egypt’s fascinating history.

Memphis: Your first stop is Memphis, founded around 3100 BC and once a flourishing capital of ancient Egypt. Visit the open-air museum that houses an impressive collection of statues, including the colossal statue of Ramses II and the alabaster Sphinx, which highlight the grandeur of ancient Memphis.

Sakkara: Next, visit Sakkara, the vast, ancient burial ground serving as the necropolis for the city of Memphis. Here, explore the Step Pyramid of Djoser, one of the world’s oldest stone structures, built in the 27th century BC by architect Imhotep. The pyramid marks a significant advance in architectural design, being the precursor to the later and more famous pyramids of Giza.

Lunch at a Local Restaurant: Enjoy a traditional Egyptian lunch at a local restaurant, where you can sample a variety of authentic dishes.

Dahshur: The tour continues to Dahshur, a royal necropolis located in the desert on the west bank of the Nile. Less crowded than Giza, Dahshur offers a more serene and intimate experience. Here, you will see the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid, both built for Pharaoh Sneferu. The Red Pyramid is notable for being Egypt’s first successful attempt at constructing a “true” smooth-sided pyramid.

Return to Your Hotel: After a day of exploring these cornerstone sites of ancient Egyptian history, relax as we drive you back to your hotel. This tour not only enriches your knowledge of ancient Egypt but also provides a unique perspective on the architectural innovations that shaped the ancient world.
