Description

At the edge of the windswept desert stands the last wonder of the ancient world - and is still intact: the pyramids of Giza. For more than 3,500 years it was the tallest structure in the world. Take a private guided tour to the Great Pyramids of Giza, Memphis, and Saqqara and get a unique insight into the culture of the ancient Egyptian civilization from your personal guide. There is hardly a better way to experience this culture. Accompanied by your private guide, see the following highlights on your tour:

Departure by private vehicle towards Cairo, where the old capital of Memphis is located 28 km south of Giza. The rulers of the Old Kingdom (2635 - 2135 BC) chose Memphis as their royal seat because of its geographically favorable location on the border between Upper and Lower Egypt.

As the first capital of the country after its unification (around 3000 BC) and as the cult center of the most important god of the Egyptian pantheon, the sun god Re, Memphis had undisputed importance for thousands of years. Only those who owned Memphis could rightly feel that they were rulers of Upper and Lower Egypt. Later kings also chose other centers as residential cities, such as Thebes in Upper Egypt, Memphis remained the economic and religious center of Lower Egypt for a long time.

Memphis is mainly visited because of the 10 m long colossus statue of Ramses II. The ruined city is delightfully situated in a fertile, blooming landscape south of Gizeh.

After the old capital Memphis and the step pyramid of King Djoser in Saqqara, the first pyramid ever, it goes to the great pyramids of Giza, which are the only ones of the classic Seven Wonders of the World to have been preserved.

As one of the oldest surviving structures of mankind, the pyramids of Giza were probably built between 2620 and 2500 BC. This period is commonly referred to as the fourth dynasty and is considered the cultural and economic heyday of Egypt. The three great pyramids were built in a relatively short period of time. Its builders are the pharaohs Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos, who belong to one and the same, namely the fourth dynasty. The Great Pyramid of Cheops was the largest building in the world until the Middle Ages, for that reason alone a trip to the Pyramids of Giza is worthwhile. The Pyramids of Giza are also the only remaining wonders of the ancient world, which is reason enough to see them with your own eyes. If you decide to explore the Giza Pyramids, then you've already won. Anyone in Egypt should put this architectural wonder on their list and not just lie lazily in the sun.
