All about the trip
See for yourself why are the Egyptian pyramids called one of the Seven Wonders of the World. When you stand in front of the largest structures ever built they seem absolutely indestructible. And when you know a little about their intricate symbolism you cannot help but stand in wonder in front of these legendary burial monuments.
We will pick you up in your Hurghada, Makadi Bay, Sahl Hasheesh, Soma Bay or El Gouna hotel. Since the journey to the pyramids takes 5 hours we will start before breakfast. So please ask your hotel reception a day before to make a breakfast box for you for the next morning.
The Pyramid of Khufu will be our first stop. It is also called the Great Pyramid or the Pyramid of Cheops. We will see its original entrance that remains closed to this day as well as its present entrance.
We will inspect the Pyramid of Khafre next. It is the only one with a part of its original limestone casing whose purpose was to reflect the sun and shine from afar.
After visiting the most famous Egyptian sphinx and the mummification temple our tour will continue to the open-air museum of Memphis – once the religious center of Egypt.
Before lunch we will see the ancient cemetery of Memphis with its step pyramid or the Pyramid of Djoser considered to be the first stone structure in the world.
Then we will have lunch in a local restaurant and start our journey back.What Wikipedia Says
