Description

Take a private guided tour to the Great Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara and get a unique insight into the culture of the ancient Egyptian civilization from your personal guide. The pyramids of Giza are the world-famous landmark of Egypt. Discover and the history of one of the world's oldest cultures on this private guided day tour of Memphis. Accompanied by your private guide, see the following highlights on your tour:

● Saqqara
25 kilometers south of Giza you will visit the necropolis of Saqqara with the Djoser pyramid, the oldest of the ancient Egyptian pyramids. Like the pyramids of Giza, the city of the dead is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Near today's village of Saqqara are the remains of a necropolis that was used for more than 3000 years. The oldest graves dated here go back to the 1st dynasty. The extensive area includes at least 15 pyramids, ruins of hundreds of mastabas and temples, as well as numerous tombs from different epochs. The tomb of Djoser, Pharaoh of the 3rd Dynasty (2620-2611 BC) is the architectural starting point for all other pyramids. The spacious area of ​​the necropolis at Saqqara includes various architectural styles of the tombs.

● The step pyramid of Djoser
Djoser's step pyramid is considered by the Egyptians to be the oldest stone building in the world. Imhotep, the Pharaoh's architect, was revered as a highly learned sage by subsequent generations because of his architectural achievements and was later even declared a deity. It is attributed to him that he refrained from the previously common construction with fired clay bricks and had Djoser's pharaoh's tomb built from hewn natural stone. Besides, that grave shows for the first time the characteristic shape of the pyramid, which tapers upwards. Imhotep's achievement is the construction of the first six-step pyramid, further development of the mastabas (ancient Egyptian tombs made of mud-brick) that were customary up until then.

It was left to Djoser's and Imhotep's descendants to build the first "real" pyramids. The current main opinion within the scientific debate is based on architectural and not least social masterpieces of the early ancient Egyptian civilization, which led to the construction of the pyramids. The pyramids are no longer viewed by the majority of scientists as the product of slave labor, but as the highly organized work performed by thousands of workers during the months of the flooding of the Nile.

● The pyramids of Giza
The world-famous pyramids of Giza in Egypt are the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World that is still preserved and can be visited today. They are located in the desert west of the Nile, just under 10 km from the city of Giza and 15 km from Cairo. The pharaohs should find their final rest inside the pyramids. The largest of them is the Great Pyramid of Cheops, which has a side length of 230 meters and was once 147 meters high. Until well into the Middle Ages, it was probably the tallest building in the world. The construction of the 4,500-year-old pyramids at Giza still puzzles researchers. Where did the ancient Egyptians get the mathematical and astronomical knowledge that was used in the construction of the monumental structures? How did you manage to put the heavy building blocks on top of each other and how were they transported to the construction site? But not only their dimensions and the purpose of the pyramids as monumental grave structures contribute to their mystical magic. The fact that the sarcophagus in the king's chamber of the Great Pyramid of Cheops was found empty and that not only the whereabouts of the pharaoh's remains but also the purpose of many chambers and shafts inside the pyramid remains unclear, contributes to the enigmatic magic of the buildings.

The Great Sphinx of Giza depicts a lion with a human head and rightly deserves its name. It is gigantic 20m high and over 70m long and was built at the same time as the pyramids. Its imposing appearance probably served to guard the pyramids of Giza.
