Morning: Explore Memphis, the location of the oldest capital of the united Egypt, where we see the colossi statue of King Ramsis II, and the wonderful sphinx statue of Memphis. Then drive to the east side of the Nile branch to Explore Sakkara which was the necropolis of Memphis, where you will visit the Imhotep Museum. The Museum was opened in 2006, and displays finds from the site, in commemoration of the ancient Egyptian architect Imhotep. Explore the Step Pyramid Complex of King Djoser (Zoser), which is considered the oldest stone structure on earth, built more than 4700 years ago. It was built for the burial of Pharaoh Djoser by his vizier Imhotep. The Pyramid of Teti is also located in the Necropolis of Saqqara, with an original height of about 52.5 m. It was a poor architectural design, but inside are some pyramid texts inscribed all around the walls of the burial chamber and the inner corridors. End the morning exploring a mastaba tomb, which is a great source of information concerning the daily life of the ancient Egyptians. A mastaba is a superstructure of a tomb that was built in the form of a huge bench above ground to house the funeral belongings of the deceased. Lunch: Lunch at a local restaurant.
With guide, drive south to explore the site of Dahshur, a necropolis of the Old Kingdom, which housed some of the oldest pyramids built by and for the 4th dynasty pharaoh, Sneferu, around 2600 BC.

Day 3:
Breakfast: Breakfast at hotel
Morning: Discovering the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Solar Boat Museum and the Sphinx. With your guide, explore the most renowned sites of Egypt with a great opportunity to see the sites up from a great panoramic view point and experience a unique short camel ride. The Pyramids of Giza are perhaps the only true rival to the Great Sphinx when one thinks of ancient Egypt and its architecture. The Valley of Giza– with its wonderful monuments– is truly a marvel of architectural prowess. The three largest pyramids located in the valley consist of the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops), the Pyramid of Kafhre (Kefren) and the Pyramid of Menkaura (Makarinos). Each Pyramid is a tomb dedicated to a different king of Egypt. Solar boat museum: The significance of the buried boat is still debated. The Pyramid texts clearly state that at the end of the pharaoh’s life on Earth, his soul ascends to the heavens in the solar barque to join his father Re. The arguments are about whether this boat was pu rely symbolic – part of the burial goods – or whether it was actually used in the funeral procession to transport the body of the king by river to his pyramid complex. While some scholars claim that there is evidence that the boat has been in water, ZahiHawass points out that shavings of cedar and acacia found in the pit during excavation indicate that it was probably built close to where it was buried. While the boat is of the right dimensions to be suitable as a river craft, no mast was found with the components. The group will then descend the plateau to view the Great Sphinx and marvel the presence of the guardian of the necropolis. An imaginary creature that shows the strength of the lion and the intelligence of the human, carved out of one big knoll of rock more than 4600 years ago. The Great Sphinx has also been known for a long time under the name “Father of Fear.” A wise man once said: “Everything fears time, yet time fears the Pyramids.” Lunch: Lunch at a local restaurant.

The twin temples remain a lasting monument to Pharaoh Ramses II and his Queen Nefertari.

This place was important to the ancient Egyptian; since it was from here they extracted the Natrun salt. It later became more important during the early era of Christianity in Egypt, as can be seen by the legacy of monasteries. Today it is the centre of many monastery groups dating back to the fourth century AD. AnbaBishoi (Bischoi)is one of the most important monasteries today in Wadi El- Natroun. AnbaBishoi (Bischoi) it was named after the patron St. Bishoi, who immigrated to the site and lived in solitude.
