    Memphis and Sakkara
    Stop: 7 hours - Admission included
    You will be met at your hotel in Cairo at 8 : 30 AM by our professional Egyptologist who will accompany you to start the day by going to Memphis ( the first pharaonic capital 3200BC ) which established by the first King of the the first pharaonic dynasty ( king Menes ) , during our visit to this great ancient city will visit the opened-air museum of king Ramses II and will see :- the most huge statue of king Ramesess II ( almost 13 meters high ) and the second big Sphinx we have ( the Alabaster Sphinx ), plus some another interesting masterpieces , - Then will go to Saqqara ( the first pharaonic necropoli in the world ), in Saqqara there are around 15 Pyramids including the Step Pyramid of King Zoser ( the first Pyramid was built in Egypt 3000 B.C ), so you have a chance to see them and to go inside one of them , We recommend King Unas Pyramid because of the Pyramid Texts are carved in fine detail into the stone and filled with blue pigment. They cover all the available wall space, plus 2 Nobles' tombs ( amazing high reliefs in these tombs for fishing scene, agriculture, hunting, farmers while working in farms of animals and birds, the market , parties and girls dancing ), Then you will go to Imhotep museum , it's very little museum but very rich important objects for example ( a part of the interior wall of the Step Pyramid which decorated by blue faience porcelain tiles , 2 Royal mummies, lots of statues for the important employees such as a Judge and Scribe, Imhotep statue ( the Vizier , architect, private doctor of king Zoser ) , coffins and very well hand made jars , cups , dishes which made out of Alabaster stone ), - Then will go afternoon  to Dahshur site to visit the 3nd and the 4rd Pyramids were built in Egypt 2700 B.C, both belong to king Snefru, you have also a chance to go inside the Red Pyramid to watch the reddish limestone of the Pyramid. Then back to the hotel by 4 PM.  - Lunch between visits at a local restaurant  ( Shish Kabak and Shish Chicken ). Or vegetarian food if you wish!
