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.
My 10 year old son and I had a great day visiting the Giza pyramids, Sakkara and Memphis. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Egyptian history and archaeology - and he could answer all my many questions about the sites we visited, how to read the hieroglyphs, how to build a pyramid etc.
Ahmed (guide) and Faroud (driver) were fantastic. Ahmed had a notebook to draw pictures and explain the process the Egyptians used in coming up with the ultimate pyramid. The entire day was informative and fun. We loved climbing into the Red Pyramid.
I had a great experience visiting the sites on this tour. The guide, Soliman, is so incredibly knowledgable and was able to answer all of my questions. The driver, Sayed, was wonderful as well and the travel safe and secure.
