Saqqara & Dahsour are worth visiting, especially as the are the oldest piramids and it is interesting to see how the acient Egyptians went from the step piramid to the dented piramid to the first triangle piramid. Memphis was nice to see the huge statue of Ramses II. The lunch at the local food place was tasty. The driver and the guide were friendly. Nice to have a female guide for a change. Minus was that there was a miscommunication between the tour operator and the guide and our pickup was an hour late, but that can happen I suppose. Length was 5.5 hours. Time can be anywhere between 4-8 hours I suppose, depending on where your hotel is located, if you enter all the piramids and if you wish to shop. All in all I would recommend, this site cannot be missed in your schedule if you’re interested in the history of the early piramids!

Very well organised tour. Out guide Aly was excellent, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and was able to keep parents and children interested throughout the day. It was a long 20hrs - long drive from makadi to cairo and back - but the drivers were excellent in the crazy cairo traffic - and everything ran very smoothly. Highly recommended!!

Both museums are worth visiting. You’ll find Tutanchamon and a lot of other nice things in the Egyptian museum, but you’ll find the really impressive Mummie hall in the other museum, so combining it is worth your time. Lunch was okay. Added bonus was an optional short boat trip on the Nile. The guide & driver were friendly.

I spent a great day on a completely private tour with my guide Salib! Travelling by myself I felt very comfortable and I really enjoyed all the detailled and thoughtful information Salib provided me with. Thank you again for making me feel so welcome! :)

It was definitely worth going to Cairo! It had been a very long journey, no less than 20 hours away. Unfortunately the trip took a bit longer than indicated but I had a very nice day!
