Witness the progress of ancient Egyptian architecture and enjoy the best-preserved pyramids in Ancient Egypt. Experience the first step Pyramid at Saqqara and the heavenly Memphis; the first capital city during the Old Kingdom then head to the marvelous two pyramids of Dahshur to be your last stop before back to your ship at Alexandria Port.
In the morning, you will be taken from your cruise ship at Alexandria Port to Cairo (outside the exit door) by a private A/C vehicle and once you get to Cairo, you will meet your professional expert tour guide to visit:
It’s dedicated to King Djoser which was constructed in the Saqqara Complex during the time of the 3rd dynasty. What makes some historians classified Saqqara Pyramid as one of the ancient world wonders is that it’s said it was the first pyramid ever built in the world. Saqqara Step Pyramid has a unique structure since it’s made from six steps of stones that’s why it became a distinctive monument.
Man or Memphis is the first ancient Egyptian capital city that was established by King Narmer in 3200 BC. The city is situated 20 KM south of Cairo on the west bank of the Nile; Memphis City boasts a wide array of impressive statues and antiquities. It was believed that it was found by the first pharaoh of the 1st dynasty and this means the city is over 5000 years old.
Lunch will be served at a very good local restaurant then move to witness:
Dahshur contains two of Egypt’s best-known pyramids which were established during the ruling time of King Sneferu within the 4th dynasty. The Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid are best-preserved evidence of the architectural development that led to the erection of the three iconic pyramids of Giza.
At the end of the day, you will drive back to your cruise at Alexandria Port.
