Itinerary

Tour To Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara And Dahshur

Meet your guide at your hotel’s reception to commence your tour to Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara and Dahshur.

Giza Plateau:

The first stop of your tour to Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara and Dahshur is at Giza Plateau. Giza Plateau, the site of the necropolis of the 4th Dynasty. It is located just outside of the outskirts of Cairo on the esplanade known as the Giza Plateau, the Great Pyramids of Giza are the must-see Ancient Egyptian landmark. Known as Khufu’s Pyramid, it is the greatest pyramid of the complex: a truly overwhelming sight.

Being one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, it is the only one still standing to this day! When gazing at this colossal structure, there’s no way to escape the feeling of being dwarfed. The two smaller – but still huge – pyramids at Giza are those of Khafre and Menkaure. A few steps to the east you will notice three small (20 m high) piles of rumble: the queens’ pyramids, and tombs of Khufu’s wives and sisters.

Saqqara: 
Your second stop of your tour to Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara and Dahshur will be in Saqqara. 
Saqqara, the sweeping necropolis and pyramid field of Memphis, the first Capital of Egypt, has been an important historical site for 5,000 years of Egyptian history. This large area about 20 miles south of Cairo features the small square tombs (Mastabas) of the kings of the First and Second Dynasties.
 
Most famously, the first king of the Third Dynasty, Djoser, asked his Vizier and Chief Architect to erect for him the first monument built entirely of stone in Ancient Egypt. The result is the famous Step Pyramid of Saqqara and its surrounding funerary complex, which was enclosed by a huge wall, probably emulating that which surrounded Memphis itself.
 
Dahshur: 
You will end your tour to Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara and Dahshur at Dahshur. Located at a short distance from Saqqara, the Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid at Dahshur were built for the Pharaoh Snefru, father of Khufu for whom the Great Pyramid of Giza was built. The Red Pyramid is the first ‘true’ pyramid and it has the second-largest base of all Egyptian pyramids.
 
What makes it yet more interesting is that it can be fully accessed, including the chance to see the burial chamber. There’s something special about exploring the cold and silent passageways inside the pyramid. Also, the Bent Pyramid was opened to the public recently. Do not go inside if you are not comfortable in an enclosed space.
End your tour to Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara and Dahshur by a transfer back to your hotel.
