2. Don’t miss out on a tour to the ancient Egyptian capital Memphis
When Egypt comes to mind, most people think of the great pyramids of Giza as being the only pyramids Egypt has to offer in any tour package; however a visit to Memphis and its necropolis will reveal otherwise. Memphis the ancient Egyptian capital is by far older than any pyramid built in Egypt and contains some of the most fascinating archeological sites in the world at a budget friendly cost, for instance, it contains Saqqara the ancient burial ground which has the step pyramid of Djoser. This was the first pyramid ever built, one hundred years before the pyramids of Giza were even started! Not only that but you should ask your travel agent to arrange a tour in Dahshour to see the well preserved red and bent pyramids constructed under the reign of Pharoah Snefru! Don’t miss out on this fascinating Ancient Egyptian architecture during your Egypt travel

Not only that, the GEM’s prime location makes it all the more impressive, just 2 km away from the Grand Pyramids of Giza enabling visitors an opportunity to combine both visits in a day’s tour package for a once in a lifetime archeological experience!
