The next stop will be the fantastic necropolis at Saqqara. Known as the Step Pyramid, the famous pyramid of the Pharaoh Djoser is the star of the show and is said to be the most ancient of all the pyramids of Egypt.

You’ll take a break at a local restaurant for a satisfying Egyptian lunch, and then head over to explore the iconic Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx.
