All about the trip
The Great Pyramids consist of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Pyramid of Cheops or Khufu known as the Great Pyramid, the somewhat smaller Pyramid of Khafre or Chephren a few hundred meters to the south-west and the relatively modest-sized Pyramid of Menkaure or Mykerinos a few hundred meters further south-west The Great Sphinx lies on the east side of the complex. The current consensus among Egyptologists is that the head of the Great Sphinx is head of Khafre.
Along with these major monuments are a number of smaller satellite edifices, known as queens pyramids, causeways and valley pyramids. As we will pay a visit to these colossal structures, we will then proceed to visit the great Sphinx, the body of a lion and head of a Pharaoh which dates from the time of Chephren. We will also visit the Valley Temple which belongs to the pyramid of Chephren. The temple served two purposes. First, it was used for the purification of the mummy of the king before its burial. Second, it was used for the mummification process of the king. Visit the Institute of papyrus to see the manual way they made the first paper in the world.
After having lunch you will be driven to the Egyptian Museum which features artifacts from the pharaonic period. The museum displays a rare collection of 5000 years of art which is considered the largest and a most precious collection of Egyptian art in the world with more than 250,000 genuine artifacts, including an exhibit dedicated to Tutankhamen. This treasure includes a collection of gold and jewelry which was enclosed in his tomb over 3500 years before it was discovered in 1922 when his tomb was excavated. After the tour, we will transfer you back to your hotel in Cairo.What Wikipedia Says
