Day Two: Visit Saqqara and the Giza Pyramids
After breakfast, get ready for a full day of non-stop activities with one of our knowledgeable tour guides to explore the greatest historical sites in Cairo, such as:
Giza Pyramids Complex
The Giza Pyramids are the first picture that comes to mind when Egypt is spoken, which is why they have come to represent Egypt. This renowned historical location was built under the rule of the 4th dynasty, and millions of tourists visiting Egypt continue to be awed by this magnificent landmark.
The Great Pyramid
Three renowned, enormous pyramids, known as the Giza Plateau, are well-known. The highest building in ancient times still has a particular place in history thanks to the Great Pyramid of King Cheops. It will be even more remarkable to realize that the Great Pyramid, which served as both Pharaoh Cheops’s last resting place and a secure storage facility for his magnificent goods, is made up of more than 2,300,000 stone blocks.
The Great Sphinx
The Great Sphinx is the other well-known structure on the Giza Plateau. The biggest representation of the Giza Plateau is believed to be a monument of Pharaoh Chephren. Since the monument is formed like a human head lion as a metaphor for power and knowledge, the terrified Sphinx got its notoriety as a result of its unusual construction.
The Valley Temple
One of the best-preserved colossal components of the Giza Pyramids Complex is said to be the Valley temple. It was first built as a funerary temple for Pharaoh Cheops and his family, after which it developed into one of the most well-known places for purification and mummification in Ancient Egypt. This was done to prepare the king’s mummy for the afterlife.
after a fantastic meal and a little rest in an upscale Egyptian restaurant, go to:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara
A trip to Giza would be incomplete without taking in the first Egyptian pyramid ever constructed. The Saqqara Step Pyramid, which was built during the third dynasty, is one of King Djoser’s most impressive works of art. This 203-foot-tall stepping-stone structure has six wonderful tiers.
The Ancient City of Memphis
When Ptah was revered and Egypt was ruled by the Old Kingdom, Memphis City functioned as the nation’s capital. Because the king’s palace was constructed of bleached stones, this imperial city was also known as the “White Wall.” It was formerly believed that “Memphis” was a Greek term that translated to “Men-Nefer” in the ancient Egyptian language, which stood for steady and lovely.

Day Three: Fly to Aswan and see the city’s top attractions

The Unfinished Obelisk
The incomplete obelisk, which was cut from red granite, is the largest obelisk ever built in Ancient Egypt. This massive monument was 140 feet long and had never been finished due to a fault in the granite that was discovered after construction was abandoned.
After enjoying a fantastic lunch at a reputable restaurant along the Nile, go to:
Temple of Philae
