Itinerary

Tour To Saqqara, Dahshur And Memphis

You will meet your guide at your hotel reception to commence your tour to Saqqara, Dahshur and Memphis.

Saqqara:

Your first stop of your tour to Saqqara, Dahshur and Memphis will be at 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:

Your second stop of your tour to Saqqara is 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.

Memphis:
You will finish your tour to Saqqara in Memphis. Memphis was one of the oldest and most important cities in Ancient Egypt, located at the entrance to the Nile River Valley near the Giza Plateau. It served as the capital of Ancient Egypt and an important religious cult center.
 
The original name of the city was Hiku-Ptah (also Hut-Ka-Ptah) but it was later known as Inbu-Hedj which means ‘White Walls’ because it was built of mud brick and then painted white. Your tour includes the Open Air Museum with its gigantic statue of Ramses II.
 
End your tour to Saqqara, Dahshur and Memphis with a transfer back to your hotel in Cairo.
