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!

Wonderful day. The beauty of the sites visited is matched only by the kindness and professionalism of our guide and our driver. Fabulous! We advise you…
