Tour Saqarra. The sacred cemetery and the virgin archaeological site keeps a lot of unsealed secrets in its hot sands. Proceed to Memphis and give respect to the effort making the first capital on Earth. End visiting the sole survivor of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids of Giza still live up to more than 4, 000 years of hype. Let me answer the question ‘How were they built, and why? Let me tell you in details about their extraordinary shape, geometry and age. The oldest and biggest pyramid is that of Khufu (tallest), and you can go inside this one if you don’t suffer from claustrophobia.
Explore the 2 other Pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure and then proceed to gaze up at the colossal Sphinx, the enigmatic statue of a human-headed lion that guards the pyramids.
