Tour : Cairo - Half day Memphis and Sakkara

Head out into the desert and to the very edge of ancient Egyptian history, to the land of the very first pyramids and Egypt's first capital city.

Memphis This historic area was the capital of ancient Egypt during the first dynasty, founded in 3100 BC as the legendary city of Menes, the King who united Upper and Lower Egypt.
In its early years of existence, Memphis was the fortress from which Menes reigned over the land and water routes connecting Upper Egypt to the Delta.

Sakkara is one section of the great necropolis of Memphis, capital of the Old Kingdom. Egyptian kings of the first and second dynasties are buried in Sakkara, located 12 miles southwest of Cairo. The famous step pyramid of King Zoser was the first pyramid to be erected in ancient Egypt, preceding those at Giza by many centuries.
