Itinerary:

Your Golden Pyramid Travel Tour Guide will collect you from your Hotel in Cairo or Giza. You will start your Tour with a visit to The Bent Pyramid, also named the Broken Ribs Pyramid; this was built before the Great Pyramids at Giza, the Bent Pyramid was one of the results of earlier attempts to achieve the complete shape of the Pyramids. The construction process was started by a group of architects who used a specific building angle but unfortunately when they had completed half of the construction they found it was an obtuse angle, this would have caused the collapse of the Pyramid so they changed it to an acute angle, as a result, the Pyramid took the shape of a Pyramid with its Ribs broken 

You will next visit the Red Pyramid also of King Snefru at Dahshur, the famous Royal Necropolis in Egypt. The site is about 40 km from Cairo, then continue on to visit the Step Pyramid of Djoser, which is located among a Great Funerary Complex and is considered the oldest structure of stone in the world.This Pyramid is also very special because it was again one of the results of the Ancient Egyptians attempts to achieve the complete form of the pyramid which appeared in The Great Pyramids at the Giza site. After this you will proceed to a local Restaurant to enjoy your Lunch

After that enjoy an excursion to The Great Pyramids of Cheops which was built from a large number of huge stones around 2 million, Chephren and Mykerinus. Inside these are numerous passages and corridors, which you can explore with extra ticket.  You will then proceed to visit the Sphinx and Valley Temple which belong to the Pyramids of Chephren
