Tour to Dahshur
Dahshur is a royal necropolis located in the desert on the west bank of the Nile approximately 40 kilometers south of Cairo. It is known chiefly for several pyramids, two of which are among the oldest, largest and best preserved in Egypt. The Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid were constructed during the reign of Pharaoh Sneferu, father of Khufu of the Old Kingdom. The Red Pyramid is the world’s first true smooth-sided pyramid. Lunch will be served at a leading restaurant.
Memphis and its Necropolis
Memphis became the capital of Ancient Egypt for over eight consecutive dynasties during the Old Kingdom. The city reached a peak of prestige under the 6th dynasty as a centre for the worship of Ptah, the god of creation and artworks. The alabaster sphinx that guards the Temple of Ptah serves as a memorial of the city’s former power and prestige. The Memphis triad, consisting of the creator god Ptah, his consort Sekhmet, and their son Nefertem, formed the main focus of worship in the city. Memphis declined briefly after the 18th dynasty with the rise of Thebes and the New Kingdom, and was revived under the Persians before falling firmly into second place following the foundation of Alexandria
Saqqara Tour
Saqqara is an ancient necropolis in northern Egypt near Giza. It contains a number of fascinating funerary monuments, including tombs, mastabas, temples and pyramids. The Step Pyramid of Djoser (Zoser) in Saqqara is the oldest stone pyramid in Egypt and an important development in Ancient Egyptian architecture. The Step Pyramid was built for the pharaoh Djoser by his architect Imhotep. Djoser’s pyramid was a revolutionary design. Previously, pharaohs were buried in rectangular mastabas Imhotep created a pyramid by stacking six mastabas on top of each other.
