Pyramids in Cairo include the ones you have all heard about 20 km out of Cairo in the area of Giza. You can see them from down town Cairo.
Sakkara is the other less known pyramids in Cairo, equally as interesting, older and a 100th of the crowds and hassle. We recommend you take an extra day from your work schedule see Sakkara as well. If you can ride a horse, we can possibly organise a 12 km ride through the desert to Sakkara from the Great Pyramids at Giza. It’s a memorable ride where you can gallop most of the way out in the open desert. Let us know if this is of interest and we’ll put something together for you.
