Salida para el recinto de las tres  Pirámides de Gizeh; Keops, Kefren y Micerinos  , donde se halla la única de las Siete Maravillas que pertenece al Mundo Antiguo: la Gran Pirámide de Keops. Este famoso monumento de 230 metros de altura se caracteriza por el enorme complejo funerario con una  esfinge gigante que preside la cabeza del rey Kefrén con un cuerpo de león.  Almuerzo incluido  y a continuación visitará la ciudad de  MENFIS , la antigua capital de Egipto hacia el año 3.100 a.C. En este punto conocerá las maravillas que exhibe Mit Rahina, un museo al aire libre en el que destacan la gigantesca estatua de Ramsés II, tallada en piedra caliza, y la esfinge de alabastro, una majestuosa escultura de 10 metros que permanece intacta. Más tarde tendrá la oportunidad de conocer la  necrópolis de SAQARA, un complejo que la UNESCO declaró Patrimonio Mundial de la Humanidad.
