Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    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 metres high ) and the second big Sphinx we have ( the Alabaster Sphinx ), plus some 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 girles 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 visit Giza Pyramids to walk around them while talking about how they built them at a time they didn't even have the pulley wheel, then will go to visit the tombs of the workers and get some informations about how they lived during the construction of the Pyramids,
    - visiting 3 different Panoramic views of the Pyramids,
    - Then visiting the Valley Temple of king Chephren ( mummification temple ) to talk about how they mummified their bodies,
    - visiting the great Sphinx to talk about how they cut it, and how old is the Sphinx originally?!! ,
    - Then back to the hotel around 5 PM.
    - Lunch between visits at a local restaurant  ( Shish Kabak and Shish Chicken ).

    I stayed in Giza for a little over a week and this was arguably the most fun I had. Getting to be up close to the pyramids, going in one, and getting educated on the ancient culture of Giza, Memphis, and Sakkara was a priceless memory. I had the perfect guide and driver. They
