A private tour at Saqqara Pyramids

Covering 7km stretch of Western Desert, Saqqara, is a huge cemetery of ancient Memphis, an active burial ground for more than 3500 years. Egypt’s largest archaeological site. The necropolis is situated high above the Nile Valley’s cultivation area and is the final resting place for deceased pharaohs and their families, administrators, generals and sacred animals. The name Saqqara is most likely derived from Sokar, the Memphite god of the dead.

If you keep up a good pace, can see the high points of Saqqara. Start with a quick visit to Imhotep Museum to get the lay of the land. Head for Zoser’s funerary complex, entering through the hypostyle hall, and gaze on the Step Pyramid, the world’s oldest pyramid. Walk south towards the Causeway of Unas then drive to the Pyramid of Teti to see some of the famous Pyramid Texts inside. Afterward​s, pop into the nearby Tomb of Kagemni before ending with the most wonderful tomb of all, the Mastaba of Ti, with its fascinating reliefs of daily life.
