A lot to see in a say but very do-able. Starting in Memphis with some time to meander around pieces and parts and then to Dashur for the Red and Bent Pyramids. Enter both and take a good look. Finally to Saqqara for Step Pyramid and surrounding structures. Also worth a look inside. Our guide was Michael and very informative. He moves fast for old folks but he’s great with questions. Farouk was driver and maneuvered around with ease. A great day and a good value. We finished early and ended up at both essence shop and papyrus shop but really no pressure at either place and I’m sure these add ons could be politely declined. A great educational day.

We had a most enjoyable time on this tour. Our guide, Mena was excellent. He happily imparted his knowledge in a humorous and informative way, and answering our questions. We had ample time to stroll around the various locations, accompanied by Mena to point out the things of note. My one criticism would be lack of air conditioning in our transportation, as promised.

Ok except tour guide talked me out of going into the Bent Pyramid re the tunnels was negative re them. Thinking now I should have gone in them. I asked the tour guide later in the day when we could still see them if we can go back, we still had hours of the 7 hr trip left but he said you have been there. Plan to go back tomorrow to go in them before I leave Egypt.
