Ancient Egypt – from Cairo to Aswan, in the heart of a lost dynasty !
Day 1 – Arrival in Cairo
Day 2 – Discovery of Cairo
After going through customs you will be welcomed by our local coordinator who will drive you to Gizeh, 20 meters away from the Sphinx side entrance.
Day 3 – Full day on the Giza plateau: the 9 pyramids, the Sphinx and Valley Temple. Every detail will be inspected while we will see the back and forth of tourist groups that are staying only 90 minutes on site.
All recesses of the Giza plateau will be inspected with your guide. Besides the magnificence of the pyramids, we will see how Dynastic Egypt and Peru had common origins, architectural but also civilizational. Also, you will dive into the heart of the first usage of ancient high technologies.
Day 4 – Dashur and its 2 pyramids: the Red & the Bent – Saqqara : the Step Pyramids, Mastaba of Ty, Serapeum and its 100-ton underground granite blocks
King Snefru, meaning « double harmony», is the one supposed to have built the Red and Bent Pyramids. Djoser, on the other side and believed to have built the Step Pyramid of Saqqara. Still swimming in the ocean of proof that Ancient Egypt once possessed forms of technology, we will go underground to see the Serapeum and its granite blocks. Academic Egyptology claims that those hollowed blocks were destined to welcome dead bulls, paying tribute to the God Apis. But this is totally false and we will see why different civilizations came on the site.
