You will be picked up from your hotel, Nile cruise or the airport by one of Gem Explore's Egyptologists. You'll have a road trip to El Fayoum which is 145 KM away from Cairo. When you arrive, you will visit Hawara Pyramid. Which is an archaeological site of Ancient Egypt, south of the site of Crocodilopolis at the entrance to the depression of the Fayoum oasis. It is the site of a pyramid built by the Pharaoh Amenemhat III in the 19th century BC.
Next you will visit the Pyramid of Lahun. Like the other Twelfth Dynasty pyramids in the Faiyum, the Pyramid of Lahun is made of mudbrick, but here the core of the pyramid consists of a network of stone walls that were infilled by mudbrick. This approach was probably intended to ensure the stability of the brick structure.
Next, 25 Km away, you will see the pyramid at Meidum. It is thought to be just the second pyramid built after Djoser's and may have been originally built for Huni, the last pharaoh of the Third Dynasty, and continued by Sneferu. Because of its unusual appearance, the pyramid is called el-heram el-kaddaab — (Pseudo Pyramid) in Egyptian Arabic.
Finally, you will have lunch at a local restaurant then escorted back to Cairo and dropped off at your requested location.
