Highlights

Back in time to the first pyramids of Egypt at Saqarra (Sakkara), Memphis, and Dahshur around 40 kilometers south of Cairo. Your first destination will be the royal necropolis of Dahshur (also Dashur) in the desert on the west bank of the Nile. Our English Egyptologist guide will take you to the Red Pyramid (also the North Pyramid); the third largest Egyptian pyramid, after Khufu (also Cheops) and Khafra (also Chephren) Pyramids at Giza. The Red Pyramid was the third pyramid built by Sneferu. Then you will see the Bent Pyramid, the second pyramid built by the Pharaoh Sneferu 


Afterwards you will be taken to Memphis, the first capital of Egypt which serves a number of the most important archaeological finds over the millennia.
From Memphis off to Saqqare (Sakkara); the necropolis for the ancient Egyptian capital, Memphis where you will visit the world most famous Step Pyramid of Djoser (also Step Tomb) that is considered to be the first pyramid built in Egypt around 2648 BC.  Tomb of Mereruka (also mastaba of Mereruka) is another sight to be seen which is the largest of the Old Kingdom tombs at Saqqara during the reign of Teti in Dynasty VI.
