Private Guided Day Trip to Dahshur, Memphis and Saqqara from Cairo

72 reviews
See some of Egypt’s lesser-known pyramids on a private day trip from Cairo. Traveling by air-conditioned vehicle, hear about the ancient pharaohs and their burial grounds from your guide as you journey south to the necropolis of Dahshur. View the Red Pyramid and extraordinary Bent Pyramid here, and then explore the ruins of Memphis, once Egypt’s capital. Inspect the broken relics, columns and giant fallen statue of Ramses II, before continuing to Saqqara. Here, see the famous Step Pyramid of Zoser, Egypt’s oldest stone structure, before returning to Cairo.

It was interesting to see the places of Christianity in the middle of Cairo with a lot of history. Good for a quick side tour.

Very interesting and a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Cairo.  You can do it yourself or take a guide.  Very quiet when we went.

Several coptic churches so closed to each other that includes an important part of the holy family route in Egypt. Churches details are unique and recommended to visit.

A short ride on the metro from the centre of Cairo this area is well worth a half day visit to the see churches, architecture and soak up quite a different atmosphere than the modern and Islamic centres.
