Built for the Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) it was the world’s tallest man-made structure for more than 4,000 years. A staggering architectural achievement for any age, Khufu’s Pyramid rises 480 feet from the desert sands and is comprised of more than two million stone blocks—some weighing as much as 90 tons. Walk up to the top of Giza plateau to marvel at the sight of the three great pyramids: Cheops (Khufu), Chephren (Khafrae), and Mykerinos (Menkaure). While we gaze at its grandeur, we can begin to understand why construction methods used by the Egyptians to build this ancient architectural wonder are debated to this very day. We can ponder another mystery for the ages at the Sphinx, enigmatic guardian of the Giza Plateau. Dated to about 2,500 B.C., the carved lion with outstretched paws and the head of a king is ancient Egypt’s earliest known monumental sculpture. Lunch at a nearby restaurant. After lunch, you will visit Memphis, where Moses studied a variety of arts: like war, medicine, architecture etc. Then we will travel to Sakkara to tour the first stone structure ever built, King Zoser’s famous step pyramid , built a century before the Great Pyramid!
