Begin with pickup at your Cairo or Giza hotel, then travel to Memphis in a private, air-conditioned vehicle with Wi-Fi onboard. Now an open-air museum filled with ancient ruins and statues, Memphis was once the capital of Aneb-Hetch, with a powerful position at the mouth of the Nile Delta. See the imposing statue of Ramesses II and the huge alabaster Sphinx, then continue to Saqqara, which served as a necropolis for ancient Memphis. Explore the oldest-known pyramids in Egypt, including Djoser’s distinctive stepped pyramid, the pyramid and causeway of Unas, and take in other sites built to honor ancient kings.
Make the final stop of the day at the Giza Plateau, where the pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure dominate the high ground at the edge of the Nile River. Take in sweeping views of the area from a panoramic overlook, and continue to the Valley Temple and the Great Sphinx, then finish the day with return transfer to your hotel.
