The step pyramid is worth a visit if you are a person who loves history. Though it was under restoration, the landscape and tombs are simply awesome.

This was the first pyramid I saw in Egypt, so of course it is special. You can enter inside for an extra fee. I did not go inside, and I heard it is filled with scaffolding for restoration work anyways and there is not much...More

Located in Saqqara, about 45 minute drive from Giza, and a must for pyramid lovers. Cost is EGP 150 for entrance to the archaeological site and Imhotep museum, which unfortunately we didn’t have time to visit. As of November 2018, it’s not possible for the...More

Son of Cheops, large pyramid in Giza. This area is known to have thousands of burials. A few steps but mainly flat walking on uneven ground.

Very interesting contrast to the construction of the great pyramid of Giza. It's was under renovation and we could not get really close to, or enter, the pyramid but it's still well-worth the visit. This is the only pyramid we visited where the surrounding wall...More

Far less tourists than expected, inside the tombs is worth the visit and if you take a photo of the camels "parked" outside be prepared to pay! you have to pay for absolutely everything, even for asking for the nearest loo.
