    What to Expect
    Start your tour at 8am from your hotel as you will be picked up by your private qualified Egyptologist in your private, modern a/c van equipped with WiFi access and head for

    Saqqara to visit the Step Pyramid of King Zoser and its complex. The Step Pyramid was built for King Zoser, the founder of the Third Dynasty (about 2700 B.C.) by Imhotep, the first architect in history and it is the oldest building of stone in history. Afterwards you will visit the beautiful tomb of Kagemni (about 200 B.C.) and watch the magnificent Pyramid Texts inside the pyramid of Teti.

    Move on to the site of

    Memphis, the first capital of ancient Egypt (about 3200 B.C) to see some of its ruins and visit its museum where you will see the colossal statue of king Ramses II and the huge alabaster sphinx. Next stop will be

    Dahshur to visit the Bent Pyramid (the first attempt to build a true pyramid) and the Red Pyramid (the first true pyramid in history) which you will enter. Both pyramids were built by King Snefru, the founder of the fourth dynasty and the father of King Cheops (about 2600 B.C.).

    Later you will have

    lunch at a top quality restaurant overlooking the Sphinx and the pyramids.

    Lastly you will move to

    Giza plateau to see the Great Pyramid of King Cheops (about 2500 B.C.), the pyramid of Chephren, the pyramid of Mycerinus, then you will move up the plateau to the panorama for taking great pictures. You'll then continue your adventure on a camel around the pyramids, then you will explore the Valley Temple and the Sphinx, before being transferred back to your hotel.

    Camel ride is included for 30 minutes

    Great day out, got to go inside two pyramids. Our guide was very friendly, full of good information and provided us with plenty of water to deal with the heat. We missed breakfast so he took us for a typical Egyptian breakfast that was beautiful and had us full for the day.
