Embark on a journey to discover ancient and modern Egypt. Experience the bustle and luxury that Cairo offers. Gaze up at the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza, and discover the ancient ruins and tombs of Egypt’s first capital: Memphis.
What to Expect
Journey to the ancient city of Memphis, Egypt’s first capital. Enjoy the ride in an air-conditioned luxury motorcoach, before stepping out and letting the ruins of the temple of Ptah, the colossal fallen statue of King Ramses II, and the Alabaster Sphinx of King Amenhopis II take you back in time.
Experience the vast and ancient burial ground of Sakkara, which served as the ancient capital’s necropolis, and gaze in wonder at King Zoser’s famous Step Pyramid, built by the engineer Imohtep almost 5,000 years ago.
Go inside one of the Mastabas (funerary chambers) built nearby, and see the last resting place of Ptah-Hotep, Mereruca, Idut, Ti, and others. Return to Cairo where lunch will be served at a leading 5-star luxury hotel.
Continue your journey to the outskirts of Cairo, where the Pyramids of Giza await. Stand in awe in front of the pyramid Cheops, the oldest, and last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Finally bid farewell to these giant tombs and their mysterious guardian, the Sphinx, watching the passage of time and man in ages of silence.
