Day 1,Giza, Memphis & Sakkara

We will pick you up from your hotel at around 8 am. Your private Egyptologist will meet you at the lobby of your hotel and start the tour. You will drive to Memphis, the earliest capital of Ancient Egypt. There your Egyptologist will take you on a walking tour through the site. Memphis is like an open air museum where many statues are on display. The ancient temple had been destroyed long ago and the surviving statues had been collected in one area for display. The site has public facilities. Then you will drive to Sakkara, the ancient cemetery for the city of Memphis. Sakkara was the burial ground for Pharaohs, royalties, noble families & commoners. There are many thing to see hear as well as some amazing information on Ancient Egyptian way of life. The Step Pyramid of king Zoser is the greatest highlight. This is the first pyramid ever built. You will walk to stand right next to this pyramid and you will be able to touch the stones for a picture. Photography is allowed in this site at no extra charge. Then you will move to a close by site, The noblemen tombs. Here are some amazing wall scenes depicting the daily life activities. You will see scenes that explain collection of taxes, building boats, cultivating the fields, fishing, hunting and so on. The list is long. Your next stop is Lunch in a near by local restaurant. Selection of restaurants is based on their location and quality. After a delicious juicy meal, you will head to Giza Pyramids. At giza the first stop will be at the Great Pyramid. You will have the chance to go walk around this pyramid and plenty of time to take your pictures to document the moment. This tour includes the ticket to go into either Khefren or Menkawra pyramids. If you want to go into the Great Pyramid, it requires an additional ticket that you can buy at the site. This ticket is for $12 per person. You can choose to either walk the site or use the van. At all cases your Egyptologist will be escorting you with detailed explanation of everything you see. Walking has its benefits of course, it makes the site come more to life as you pass beside every building rather than drive past them. In some instances, the use of the car will be necessary to cover some great distance with nothing in . between. Like when you drive to the photo stop area, it is quite far to walk in the desert. The Giza Pyramids sites has many thing to see, the funeral boat, the three pyramids, the side pyramids for the wives, noblemen tombs, the valley temple & the Sphinx. At the completion of the tour, you will driven back to your hotel.
