Know More about this tour

On this tour, you will follow the steps of ancient Egyptians from their beginning when they united Egypt (north and south together) by visiting the oldest and the first capital of Egypt where you will see the huge colossi of King Ramses the second, the famous hero of ancient Egypt. Many scholars believe he was the pharaoh of Exodus as well as the huge Sphinx which was made from alabaster stone dating back to the new kingdom weighing 20 tons.

Continue to Saqqara, where you will get to explore the area with your Egyptologist guide. You will see the step pyramid which is considered the oldest complete building of stone. Know more about the period steps between the mastaba and true pyramids. Discover a tomb still preserved until today dating back to the old kingdom (Kagemni) for the vizier of King Teti. Take the opportunity to enter inside the pyramids of teti where you will be able to see the oldest religious book (pyramids texts). Later, enjoy your lunch in a quality, countryside-style restaurant.
