Cairo Day Tour - Private Tour

Cairo Day Tour

On a private Cairo Day Tour, you will be roaming around the Step Pyramid at Sakkara, and Memphis nearby Cairo. You would be amazed to know how the stone blocks which were used in building Pyramids were transported from places which were hundreds of kilometers away from this site. Pyramids are listed in Seven Wonders of the World and it gives enough reasons to visit these historical constructions.

Only a few places on earth are as immediately noticeable with ease as the Pyramids of Giza. Built almost 4000 years ago, these pyramids tell us about the construction ability of great Egyptian rulers.

The Pyramids of Cheops is 1st among Seven Wonders of the World. Built by Egyptian in old times having a height of approximately 230 m. However, the continuous erosion and weathering have lowered its height. This is the largest pyramid which is ever built on planet earth. Pyramid has a square base with 4 faces and built in a classical pattern. All of it is made of limestone and granite.

Next point of our Cairo Day Tour is the central pyramid which was erected for Khafre (Greek: Chephren), who was 8th king of 4th dynasty. Height of this middle pyramid is 216 m on each side. Another third pyramid on the southern end is of Menkaure (Greek: Mykerinus) by the 5th king of 4th Dynasty. It is heartening to know that these ancient structures were plundered in medieval and ancient times also. Due to this, the main grave goods are missing.

Later you may head toward the Great Sphinx which had been Khafre’s funerary complex. A visit to the valley temple can also be paid which was part of the funerary complex along with the mortuary temple. These temples might have been used for the mummification process or perhaps for mouth opening ceremony. This temple was buried until the 19th century by the desert sand.

Nearby Egyptian Museum where artifacts of ancient Egyptian are displayed in a good manner should be visited. The museum is still under construction and will be completely open for the masses by 2020. The museum covers an area of 120 acres. It is interesting to know that the design of the Museum building was finalized by an architectural competition. The shape of the building is like a Chamfered triangle. Northern and southern walls of pyramid lined up directly with great pyramids of Khufu. Around 50,000 artifacts will be there to see on different display boards. These articles would be from the periods of Pharaonic.

At the end of the Cairo Day Tour, you can visit Sakkara which was used as a necropolis for the Egyptian capital Memphis. It houses numerous pyramids including Step Pyramid of Djoser, often referred to as Step Tomb. The oldest stone building of human history was built here during the 3rd dynasty. There are many pyramids here which are in their phases of destruction or preservation. It had been an important place during Pharaonic as well as Roman times.
