Day 1: One Day Pyramids Experience
In the morning, our experienced guide will reach your hotel at the appointed time for pick-up. After a warm greeting, we will set out this brilliant Egypt pyramids tour to the Great Pyramids of Giza by around a 30 minutes' ride. On the way, our guide will give you a brief instruction about this magnificent construction, which is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. There are altogether 96 pyramids discovered in Egypt till now, and the Great Pyramids of Giza composed of the pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure are the biggest three that we are going to visit today.
Upon arrival, follow the pyramid tours to have a close contact with Giza Pyramids by strolling around this must-see site in southeast Cairo. Among the three pyramids, the Khufu Pyramid with grand scale is especially worth a careful seeing.
Afterwards, the adjacent Great Sphinx will expect your visit. It is a 21-meet (69-feet) high sculpture built around 4,000 years ago to be the guardian angel of pharaoh Khafre's mausoleum. That could be the reason why it has the lion's body and human's head which looks like Khafre's. It would be full of fun for you to climb up the neighboring hallway and take the hugging or kissing pictures with the Great Sphinx.
After that, a comfortable transfer will take you to the older Step Pyramid at Sakkara to continue this Eygpt pyramid tour packages. Built in BC 2700, it is not only the very first pyramid in Egypt, but also the earliest tomb piled up by stones and rocks in the world. At lunch time, we will offer you an abundant meal in a wonderful restaurant. Please enjoy!
In the afternoon, you will be escorted to Memphis - the oldest capital city of ancient Egypt since BC 3100. In this open-air heritage park named Mit Rahina Museum, the exquisite sculpture of Ramses II lying on the floor without left arm and legs can vividly tell the glorious history and civilization at that time. You can also have a look at the second-largest Sphinx of Memphis and a granitic statue of Ramses II there.
