Itinerary

Tour Program

Already with the pick-up from your accommodation in Cairo, you will notice the difference to mass tourism!

It doesn't matter whether you join our group of up to 7 people alone or with friends, the experienced Egyptologists from Sempre Travel Egypt will allow you to visit the individual sights of this Egypt Pyramids Tour in Cairo and Saqqara in a stress-free atmosphere.

We start our trip with the drive to the

Pyramids of Giza


On the outskirts of the metropolis of Cairo are the three great world-famous Pyramids of Giza, one of the Cairo attractions that every visitor of Egypt should have seen. After arriving at the Giza Plateau, at the foot of the great Cheops Pyramid with the middle Khafre Pyramid and the smaller Pyramid of Menkaure, you will feel the fascination that emanates from this necropolis, a masterpiece of antiquity, built more than 4.000 years ago as a tomb for the pharaohs.

Most people already know the mighty Sphinx with the body of a lion and the head of a human from photos, guarding the Pyramids of Giza and the Valley Temple. YOU have the chance to see the Great Sphinx of Giza up close before we leave the Giza Plateau for a lunch break and then continue our tour to the 20 kilometers away

Memphis, capital of Egypt in antiquity


During the reign of the Pharaohs in Ancient Egypt, the city of Memphis was the capital of Egypt. She fell apart long before the current capital Cairo was founded and housed countless pyramids that are much older than the 3 Pyramids of Giza. One of the most famous pyramids in the are is the

Saqqara


build by Djoser, also called Step Pyramid by Djoser. For more than 3.000 years, Saqqara was a place of worship and a necropolis for numerous kings and still one of the most important tombs of ancient Egypt along with Cairo and Luxor. A so-called open-air museum with numerous graves, mastabas, pyramids, catacombs and mortuary temples was created on this field, divided into north and south Saqqara.

We make our way to the northern part of the necropolis where the famous

Saqqara Step Pyramid – Step Pyramid of Djoser


is located, considered to be the early stage of pyramid construction and maybe answers some of your questions that came up while visiting the 3 Pyramids of Giza. Our Egyptologist will explain some more about the stone construction of the Step Pyramid of Djoser, made of six layers of stacked stones of different sizes up to a height of around 62 meters. A contrast to the construction of the world-famous landmark of Egypt in Cairo.

To this day, archaeologists from all over the world agree that Saqqara still hides many undiscovered graves. During your visit, you might come across one or the other teams of archaeologists looking for the "undiscovered" while visiting this impressive tomb.

After an exciting tour at the Saqqara necropolis, we make our way back from our Egypt Pyramids Tour to your accommodation in Cairo.
