What to Expect

Get a chance to snap unforgettable photos of the famous seated lion, whose head resembles the ancient King Chephren. After a savory lunch at an authentic local restaurant (own expense), visit the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, which marked a new style of monument, and the powerful statues of ancient Memphis, built in 3100 BC.
