On the day that your pyramids and Cairo tour from Alexandria Port begins, your expert tour guide and driver will fetch you from Alexandria Port in the morning and then you will drive to Cairo in one of our clean and modern air conditioned vehicles. On arrival in Cairo, you will first make your way to the ancient Saqqara necropolis to visit the Step Pyramid of Pharaoh Djozer. The Step Pyramid was the very first pyramid ever built by the ancient Egyptians and is believed to be the oldest major stone structure in the world. The pyramid was built during the 3rd Dynasty for Pharaoh Djoser. After a 14-year restoration project, visitors can today once again enter this breathtaking archaeological site, and also the Teti Pyramid which is also located at the Saqqara necropolis.
