Immerse yourself in the world of kings and pharaohs.

But the fun doesn't end yet! Let's continue our adventure to a special place called Saqqara's sacred necropolis. This is a really important spot in ancient Egyptian history. In the middle of it all is a pyramid called Djoser's; The Step Pyramid. It's super cool because it was the very first pyramid made out of stone. It was built for a king named Zoser a really long time ago. This pyramid has six steps that look like big stairs, and inside there's a secret room where they buried important things.

Step into the past, relive history and explore ancient Egypt's treasures effortlessly. Let Cairo Day Tours from the Airport be your doorway to a layover in Cairo. Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Djoser ruled the 3rd Dynasty of the Old Kingdom. Reportedly, he held the throne for over 18 years. We have a lovely diorite statue that King Khafre left for us.
