Uncover the ancient mysteries of Egypt on a private full-day tour to the Pyramids of Giza, Dashur and Memphis from Cairo. Alongside an expert historian guide, travel to iconic wonders like the Great Pyramid of Giza and delve into the ancient history of Egypt’s former capital, Memphis. Marvel at the Red Pyramid in Dashur, hailed as the 'first pyramid', and behold the colossal stature of the Sphinx as you listen to illuminating commentary from your knowledgeable guide.

What to Expect
Start your tour at 8am from your hotel as you will be picked up by your private qualified Egyptologist in your private, modern a/c van equipped with WiFi access and head for Saqqara to visit the Step Pyramid of King Zoser and its complex. The Step Pyramid was built for King Zoser, the founder of the Third Dynasty (about 2700 B.C.) by Imhotep, the first architect in history and it is the oldest building of stone in history. Afterwards you will visit the beautiful tomb of Kagemni (about 200 B.C.) and watch the magnificent Pyramid Texts inside the pyramid of Teti.

Move on to the site of Memphis, the first capital of ancient Egypt (about 3200 B.C) to see some of its ruins and visit its museum where you will see the colossal statue of king Ramses II and the huge alabaster sphinx. Next stop will be Dahshur to visit the Bent Pyramid (the first attempt to build a true pyramid) and the Red Pyramid (the first true pyramid in history) which you will enter. Both pyramids were built by King Snefru, the founder of the fourth dynasty and the father of King Cheops (about 2600 B.C.).
Later you will have lunch at a top quality restaurant overlooking the Sphinx and the pyramids.
Lastly you will move to Giza plateau to see the Great Pyramid of King Cheops (about 2500 B.C.), the pyramid of Chephren, the pyramid of Mycerinus, then you will move up the plateau to the panorama for taking great pictures. You'll then continue your adventure on a camel around the pyramids, then you will explore the Valley Temple and the Sphinx, before being transferred back to your hotel.
Camel ride is included for 30 minutes

Won't make much difference, Booking earlier might give you more options in choosing days in case they're busy. I booked my mine only 2 days before the trip.
