See the Step Pyramids of Zoser, the world’s oldest stone structure, and visit Memphis, the capital of the Old Kingdom. On your way back, visit the pyramids at Dahshur. See the Statue of Ramses II, the Red Pyramid and Bent Pyramid at Dahshur.

Our representative will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo or Giza to enjoy a tour to the most attractive sites in Cairo. Start by visiting the Red and Bent Pyramid, some of the oldest pyramids close together in Dahshur, pyramids built by king Sneferu. The Red Pyramid, also called the North Pyramid, is the largest of the three major pyramids located at the Dahshur necropolis. Named for the rusty reddish hue of its red limestone stones, it is also the third largest Egyptian pyramid. The Bent Pyramid is an ancient Egyptian pyramid located at the royal necropolis of Dahshur, approximately 40 kilometres south of Cairo, built under the Old Kingdom Pharaoh Sneferu (c. 2600 BC).

Then move forward to visit the step Pyramid of Zoser, the first pyramid ever built in Egypt and the oldest stone building still standing in Egypt. Next stop will be Memphis city. Memphis became the capital of Ancient Egypt for over eight consecutive dynasties during the Old Kingdom. The city reached a peak of prestige under the 6th dynasty as a centre for the worship of Ptah, the god of creation and artworks. The alabaster sphinx that guards the Temple of Ptah serves as a memorial of the city’s former power and prestige. The Memphis triad, consisting of the creator god Ptah, his consort Sekhmet, and their son Nefertem, formed the main focus of worship in the city.

Lunch will be served in a high quality restaurant. At end the tour you go back to your hotel.
