although it is under renovation but still quite an attraction it is older than the 3 famous pyramids of Giza..built in a step like fashion..the area is also full of pyramids and tombs..u can spend a whole day there..a nice tour..totally worth it

Our tour guide Shereif picked us up from the hotel and we used that vehicle all day. We walked to the restaurant because it was not far from the Hilton on Zamalek where we were staying. Taxis are cheap and mostly not too scary. It is interesting to ride in one.
