    Stop At: Pyramids of Giza, Al Haram Str., Giza 12611 Egypt

    The Giza Plateau is one of the most important tourist sites in Egypt and has a long history. Amongst a complex of ancient Egyptian royal mortuary and sacred structures you will marvel at the wonderous Great Pyramid of Khufu which is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. The pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure create a landscape unparalleled in the Middle East. You will also explore the mysterious Sphinx which is believed to guard the pyramids. To the south of the Sphinx lies the cemetery and town of the Pyramid Builders which is being excavated to this day. The pyramids are a remarkable feat of engineering. But, still the question as to why the pyramids were constructed and how they were made is debated.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Saqqara, Saqqara, Giza Governorate

    Saqqara is Egypt’s largest archaeological site and lies in the west bank of the Nile, covering a 7km stretch of the Western Desert. Saqqara served as the cemetery of ancient Memphis and was an active burial ground for more than 3500 years and was the final resting place for deceased pharaohs and their families, administrators, generals and sacred animals. At Saqqara, the oldest complete stone building complex known in history was built during the Third Dynasty this known as the Step Pyramid and was built for King Djoser by his famous royal architect Imhotep. Sixteen other Egyptian kings built pyramids at Saqqara, which are now in various states of preservation or dilapidation including Userkaf, Unas, Pepi I and Pepi II. Many private tombs of the Old Kingdom were also built at Saqqara, the best known of these are Ti, Kagemni, Ptahhotep and Meruruka.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Memphis and Sakkara, Saqqara 12919 Egypt

    Memphis was founded by the pharaoh Menes. It was the Capital of Egypt during the Old Kingdom and remained an important city throughout ancient Egyptian history. It occupied a strategic position at the mouth of the Nile Delta. During its golden age, Memphis thrived as a regional centre for commerce, trade, and religion. Memphis was believed to be under the protection of the god Ptah, the patron of craftsmen. It’s great temple, Hut-ka-Ptah (meaning “Enclosure of the ka of Ptah”), was one of the most prominent structures in the city. Memphis today is called Mit Rahina and it is here where our tour will take us to the Open Air Museum where amongst the artefacts you will view the colossus of Ramesses II carved of limestone and measuring about 10 metres in length.
