Giza Pyramids Complex
It is the most spectacular of the legacies left by Ancient Egypt that were created under the rule of the 4th dynasty. The three fabled pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Menkaure are the most recognizable distinguishing features of the Giza Pyramids Complex, also known as the “Giza Necropolis,” which is situated over the Giza Plateau.
The Great Pyramid
The highest building in the ancient world for more than 2000 years, it is the biggest pyramid on the Giza Plateau. Dedicated to Pharaoh Khufu, who ruled Egypt during the 4th dynasty, the Great Pyramid (147 m) is made out of 2,300,000 stone pieces.
The Great Sphinx
To pharaoh Chephren, it is the Giza Pyramids Complex’s bodyguard that is portrayed. The Sphinx is an extremely enormous limestone sculpture that is 73 m tall, 20 m high, and 19 m broad. Its human head and lion body were sculpted as a symbol of sternness and knowledge.
The Valley Temple
It is a granite mortuary temple that is part of the Giza Complex. It was primarily used for ceremonial cleansing and mummification, as well as serving as a place of worship for the royal rites.
After being transported to a fine dining establishment for lunch, you will proceed to see:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara
King Djoser built the very first step pyramid ever built in the history of the planet. The Saqqara Step Pyramid, which has six steps and rises 203 feet, was built under the rule of the 3rd dynasty to serve as the royal burial of the pharaoh.
City of Memphis
The first capital of Egypt, Memphis, was referred to as the “White Wall” because of the house of the monarch, which was constructed of whitewashed stones. It was formerly believed that “Memphis” was a Greek term that translated to “Men-never” in the ancient Egyptian language, which stood for steady and lovely.
We’ll take you back to your hotel so you may stay the night.

Mosque of Amr Ibn Al Aas
The famous Islamic leader Amr Ibn Al Aas, who brought Islam to Egypt, commissioned and finished the construction of the Amr Ibn Al-Aas mosque in 640 AD, making it the earliest Islamic building in Africa.
The Hanging Church
One of the most well-known Christian tourist destinations is the Hanging Church, which dates back to the ninth century. However, it is thought that the Hanging Church was the earliest Coptic site in all of Egypt when it was a church in the third century AD.
Synagogue of Ben Ezra
The Ben Ezra Synagogue, built in the ninth century and hidden away in the Old Cairo lanes, is the oldest Jewish location in Egypt. After the majority of the Jewish population left Egypt in the 1950s, the location became a popular tourist destination.
