Some of the most sought-after private tours in Egypt are those that will offer you to see the pyramids. There's nothing surprising about it, as the ancient structures were attracting travelers hundreds years ago just as they do now. The might Great Sphinx of Giza and the Great Pyramid of Giza that tower over the yellow silent desert and the most recognized symbols of Egypt, and probably the main reason why people come to this country in general. But they are certainly not the only attractions of this kind to be found in Cairo. If your stay doesn't give you much time in the city and you have already seen the Great Pyramids, this tour will definitely prove as a very appealing option, as it takes you to the famous Saqqara Necropolis, Dashur complex and Memphis.
Taken by a private van and accompanied by a private guide in Cairo, you’ll first visit the remarkable Saqqara Necropolis, which was the place where noble people were buried during the time when Memphis served as the capital of the Old Kingdom. There you’ll see the oldest Egypt pyramid, which is the Bent Pyramid of Djoser, and several other attractions. Then we’ll head over to the ancient capital itself incepted by King Menes, and explore the numerous ruins of temples and buildings Memphis is famous for.
Our final part of the journey will be the Dashur complex, which is a remarkable place for all professional researchers and history aficionados alike. This where the first pyramid of a true geometrical can be found, the Red Pyramid of Sneferu, along the unique Bent Pyramid, which owes its shape to the engineering errors committed during its construction. There are also the remains of other pyramids in the area, including the Black Pyramid that resembles an ordinary hill, the majority of which were ruined due to engineering flaws. This site will conclude our tour and we’ll head back to Cairo afterwards.
