The step pyramid in Sakkara was the first pyramid built in the ancient Egypt. Interesting to learn about the history behind this pyramid and the ones closeby, which led to the building of the great pyramids in Giza.
When visiting Egypt, I am glad I chose to visit Memphis and Sakkara. Hardly anything remains of ancient Memphis, but there is a museum and some worthwhile artifacts. Sakkara however should not be missed for it has the first pyramid which was a step pyramid,...More

Whichever tour company or guide you use make sure that you are firm about what YOU want to see and do not be rushed around the sites then be taken to a relative`s bazaar,shop or workshop.There are carpet factories on the road to Sakkara,over-priced and hard sell.At Sakkara,visit the Step Pyramid complex and the many roomed tombs of Mereruka and Kagemeni.The horse and camel guys are very persistent at both Sakkara and Giza.If you use them,do not pay until you get back as they can demand extra for the return journey!The hawkers should be avoided unless you see an item you really must have!There are scammers who will tell you they are official "guardians"and will try to relieve you of your ticket then ask for money to get it back to give to the correct ticket collector.This happens in full view of the security staff.So be aware,be firm,and enjoy your memorable visit.
