Before the Great Pyramids of Giza, many Egyptian kings created vast and memorable monuments for their burial in the desert outside present-day Cairo.

Saqqara is a large and ancient burial ground that features the world's oldest standing step pyramid. Designed by Imhotep for King Djoser, the step pyramid is the oldest complete stone-hewn building complex known in history. It is surrounded by other small pyramids dating back to the 5th and 6th dynasties. Although Giza and the Valley of the Kings in Thebes eventually eclipsed Saqqara as the burial ground of royalty, Saqqara remained an important complex for burials and cult ceremonies for more than 3,000 years. You’ll continue on to Memphis, the ancient capital of Lower Egypt and of the Old Kingdom of Egypt from its foundation until around 2,200 B.C.

My husband and I had amazing time with this tour in Giza. We had the pleasure of having Fadi as our private tour guide and Fares as our driver. They were great and we highly recommend them for your Giza Pyramid experience. Fadi was able to guide us seamlessly from one tourist site to another. Fares was prompt with the pick ups and the drops. He was agile and skilled driver. We felt very safe and secure with them. We hope to hire them the next time we come back to Egypt.
