Day Tour to Giza Pyramids, Saqqara and Dahshur
From US$40.00
Overview
You will go the west district of Giza Governorate to explore the massive structures that belonging to the great pharaohs of the old kingdom in Giza Plateau, Dahshur, and Sakkara.
What to Expect
At 8:00 a:m our Egypt Tailor Made tour guide will meet and transfer you from hotel to Giza Plateau to visit the impressive 3 Pyramids of  Kings Cheops,  Chephren, and  Menkaure which are guarded by the rock-cut statue (The Sphinx). The Great Pyramid of King Cheops is the only wonder of the seven wonders of the ancient world that is still standing today, although it is 2,000 years older than any other wonder on the list. 

Then you will go to witness the Complex of  Saqqara which belongs to King Zoser and his step pyramid which is considered the first pyramid in Egypt and the first rock-cut building in the history. 

After that heading to Dahshur . The pyramid field of Dahshur lies about 10 km south of  Saqqara. The pyramids here include the famed Bent and Red Pyramids built by the 4th Dynasty king Senefru (father of Khufu, builder of the Great Pyramid). The Bent pyramid is the second funerary monument of King Senefru's Complex after Meidum Pyramid .the reason of its shape it was originally designed to rise at the angle of 52°, this was decreased to 43.5° partway up, and a girdle was built around the base, apparently because the foundations were unstable and the angle too steep for safety. The Red Pyramid, Seneferu's third funerary monument, is the first successful true (straight-sided) pyramid ever built. It's called the red because of the reddish color of the stones used in its construction. 

After this trip you will be transferred to your hotel

Such a fun day with Sandy!

Having read about all the scams / aggressive people selling merch and/or camel rides at the pyramids, we decided that we’d be more comfortable joining a tour to head to the pyramids. And a guide would also help since there wasn’t that many information signboards...More
