Day 2 – Cairo (Sakkara, Memphis, Dahshur) 20 Jan. 2010

After breakfast your private Egyptologist tour guide and driver will pick you up and start your tour, Drive to Giza and visit Memphis, capital of the pharaohs during the Old Kingdom. Visit the recumbent statue of Ramses II and the 80-ton alabaster sphinx.

Continue to Sakkara to see the prototype of the Pyramids, the Step Pyramid, built for the 3rd Dynasty pharaoh Djoser by the exalted architect Imhotep. 

The necropolis of Dahshur belongs to two periods of ancient Egyptian history, the 4th and the 12th dynasties, corresponding to the times around 2600 BCE and 1900 BCE.

Lunch at a Local Restaurant Return to Cairo and visit a Papyrus Institute on your way back to the hotel, overnight. (B, L)


Day 3 – Fayoum (Meidum, Fayoum Oasis) 21 Jan. 2010

This morning will travel south to Meidum Pyramid: The collapsed pyramid at Meidum may be the first true pyramid in the world; its contender is the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur. The pyramid was a refined mastaba, where the steps of the step pyramid were evened out. The few step pyramids of Ancient Egypt apparently suggested an even greater shape; the dramatic simplicity of the non-stepped pyramid. 

Then continue driving to Fayoum Oasis Egypt's largest oasis, populated by more than 2 million. It is not a pure oasis like the other ones of Egypt, as most of its water comes from the Nile.

But it is a depression, and it has its own artesian wells, allowing water to reach the surface from underground reservoirs. So will visit the city, Qaroun Palace, have lunch over the Lake View then return back to Cairo and over night (B, L)


Day 4 – Cairo (Citadel, Sultan Hassan, Ibn Tulun, Gayer Anderson Museum) 22 Jan. 2010

after breakfast you will proceed to Old Cairo to visit the citadel of Salah El Din, and the Mohammed Ali Mosque situated high above the city, continue to visit Sultan Hassan mosque and madrasa It was a school, or madrasa, but for the first time in Cairo, the madrasa had also the status of a congregational mosque for Friday sermons. There are many interesting stories about this mosque, which is considered to be Cairo's finest example of early Mamluk architecture

Continue to The mosque of Ibn Tulun: he is not only the oldest surviving mosque structure of Cairo, it is also unique and one of the city's most distinct ones.

It was built in 876 by a Syrian Christian, something which leads to a great number of designs and motifs from Coptic churches. But the general layout is most likely designed after the Great Mosque of Samarra (now Iraq). This can be seen both in the huge, open court yard as well as the spiral minaret. Although dwarfed by its Mesopotamian counterpart, the similarities are more than theoretical.

Continue to visit Gayer Anderson Museum At one time; the house was the residence of Gayer Anderson, a British officer in the Egyptian army, and a breed of individual known as an Orientalist. Orientalists were individuals who fell in love the Arabic way of life, and often integrated themselves into the Arabic society during a time when it was considered a very romantic way of life. They were frequently the early explorers of Egypt's monuments, prior to the scientific methods of Egyptology. Then drive back to your hotel and overnight (B, L)
