1-Day Tour to Pyramid, Memphis, and Sakkara

Our representative will pick you up from your hotel and take you to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world-- the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) and 3 small pyramids.You will continue to explore the rest of Giza plateau including the sight of Khafre (kaphren) pyramid - Khufu's son, the second largest pyramid on Giza site, the remains of the funeral temple, the pyramid of Mankawra (Mykerinus), and 3 small pyramids. Then, proceed to visit the Great Sphinx, the head of a pharaoh with a lion's body, which dates from the time of Chephren. The tour also includes a visit to the Valley Temple, which belongs to the pyramids of Chefren. This temple served two functions: first, it was used for the purification of the mummy of the king before its burial. Second, it was used for making the mummification process of the king. After visiting the pyramids, you'll then continue across the plateau for a photo opportunity of the three pyramids rising from the sands, with the Cairo skyline in the background. Proceed to have your lunch at a local restaurant.Then visit the Step Pyramid of Zoser, the world's oldest major stone structure. It was built in the 3rd Dynasty (around 2630 BC) for King Djoser, the museum of Imhotep, the tomb of a high official, the pyramid of King Titi, and the pyramid of King Unas.After that, transfer to Memphis which was founded by King Menes, and was the capital of Old Egypt during the Old Kingdom. It was considered to be a center of rule and culture for over 3,000 years and was the first capital of Egypt.The city reached a peak of prestige under the 6th dynasty as a center for the worship of Ptah, the god of creation and artworks. The Alabaster Sphinx that guards the Temple of Ptah serves as a memorial of the city’s former power and prestige. The Memphis triad, consisting of the creator god Ptah, his consort Sekhmet, and their son Nefertem, formed the main focus of worship in the city. Memphis declined briefly after the 18th dynasty with the rise of Thebes and the New Kingdom, and was revived under the Persians before falling firmly into second place following the foundation of Alexandria. Thereafter, see the Statue of Ramses II which is 16 meters high, and the Alabaster Sphinx.You will be transferred back to your hotel or airport.
