- Dahshur area
All about the trip
Our guide will pick you up from your hotel early in the morning at 8:00 to drive you to the Dahshur area, about 35 kilometers from the Giza pyramids.
Dahshur was the ancient cemetery of Memphis and you will visit the 2 famous pyramids of King Senefru, the founder of the 4th dynasty and the father of King Cheops (founder of the Great Pyramids in Giza). You will discover why the king had 2 pyramids and how it was down to a mistake by his architect. You can go inside the Red Pyramid of King Senefru, named for the red limestone used at its core. Then we will be on our way to Memphis, the oldest capital of Egypt after the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt by King Menes in 3100 BC.
Explore the lovely gardens and historic ruins before ending your day tour at Sakkara to see Egypt’s oldest cemetery and the grand necropolis of the former capital of Memphis. Visit the world’s first monumental stone building at the Step Pyramid of King Zoser and the magnificent Mastaba tombs, before your return to Cairo for your hotel drop-off.What Wikipedia Says
