Bustling Cairo, "the city of a thousand minarets" is the largest city in the Middle-East. On its west side lies the capital of the Old Kingdom, Memphis, still hints of ancient days of grandeur and triumph. On its east side lies the beautiful Garden City, with its lush, sprawling gardens and expansive ornamental palaces. From medieval markets to oriental dance shows; from Roman ruins to the mighty Pyramids of Giza & Sphinx, there is never a dull moment in this city!

Get ready for an adventurous day exploring the vibrant city of Giza! Your private certified Egyptologist will provide a fascinating introduction to each of the three famed pyramids of Giza.

Following the Great Pyramids, you will continue across the plateau for a photo opportunity of the pyramids rising from the sands, with the Cairo skyline in the background. A short drive to the city side of the plateau finds you standing at the feet of the Sphinx, the enigmatic symbol of Egypt for thousands of years.

Head to the Mena House for a delicious lunch and then you are off again to Saqqara, the vast, ancient burial ground, which served as the necropolis for the Ancient Egyptian capital, Memphis. Your guide will provide a brief history of the famous step Pyramid of Zoser. You will have free time to explore the area. Your final stop is Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt. Here you will see artifacts from many of the great rulers of Egypt, including the huge fallen statue of Ramses II.
