    1. Cairo: Pyramids, Memphis, and Sakkara Private Day Tour

    Start your day trip to the Great Pyramids, Memphis, and Sakkara, with an 08:00 pick-up at your hotel. Your guide will take you to the Giza Plateau where you will see the famous Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinus. Next, see the Great Sphinx statue and visit the Valley Temple, which is a part of the same ancient complex. Marvel at the ancient structure as you learn about the burial rites of the Pharaoh kings.

From the Step Pyramids transfer to Memphis, the former capital city of ancient Egypt during the Old Kingdom. Having once reigned as a cultural center for over 3,000 years, Memphis offers stunning ancient sites and intrigue.

    My 10 year old son and I had a great day visiting the Giza pyramids, Sakkara and Memphis. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Egyptian history and archaeology - and he could answer all my many questions about the sites we visited, how to read the hieroglyphs, how to build a pyramid etc.
