Essential Egypt in 9 days - Part II: the Step Pyramid of Sakkara and the Great Pyramids of Giza

The first day of my Essential Egypt tour with Travel Talk Tours was undoubtedly the big highlight of any trip to Egypt: exploring the fascinating pyramids. Our visit started in Sakkara, the first capital of Egypt and famous for the unique Step Pyramid built by King Zoser. 

After visiting what is considered to be the first pyramids ever constructed, we headed to the only remaining wonder of the ancient world: the Great Pyramids of Giza (Cheops, Chephren and Mycrenos). But, what is it really like to explore one of the most notorious world heritage sites?
