TOUR SAKKARA & MEMPHIS
Your guide for the day will pick you up and begin your guided tour with a drive through the countryside to Sakkara to see the Step Pyramid – the first pyramid to be built and the surrounding monuments. Your guide will give you a detailed history on Imhotep, the Egyptian architecture who created this pyramid and how he accomplished this major undertaking.
Following is a visit to the open air Museum at Memphis where the Colossus of Ramses the II, the largest statue of Ramses the Great can be seen in the place where it was discovered, see the Alabaster Sphinx alongside.
On the way back to Cairo we will stop at a local school of carpet making where you will see the local nimble-fingered children weaving carpets and wall hangings.
