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.

The Al-Azhar Park is located near the historic Darb al-Ahmar district in east Cairo. It’s hard to imagine that these lush and beautifully landscaped public grounds were once a 500-year-old garbage dump! As part of an Islamic Cairo tour, our group watched a short video that described the ongoing transformation that included not only the development of the park but also quality of life improvements for the nearby neighborhood, historic building restoration, and excavation of the 12th century Ayyubid wall. What an amazing project! After touring several historic monuments and mosques in Darb al-Ahmar, we returned to the park to have lunch at the Citadel View Studio Masr restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our day here and the opportunity to see everyday life as a local and not a tourist.

Al-Azhar Park, Cairo was created by the Historic Cities Support Programme of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. The park opened for sightseeing to the general public in the year 2005. Since then, the Al-Azhar Park has been fascinating people from all over the world with its beautiful plantations, terraced gardens, water fountains, Mamluk stonework comprising of multi-coloured stones, children play areas, a few restaurants, a lake, etc. Very nominal entry fee is applicable. I think it is better to visit the Park before noon, because the park gets overcrowded afterward.

Cairo, Egypt30 contributions8 helpful votes
it is a lovely air breathe area you can escape too. lovely view from different angles of old Cairo. 15 minutes walk to Khan ElKhalili and Hussien area. Good cafes but service is not top-notch. Restaurants are perfectly situated but food quality is poor especially on Egyptian public occasions. You can go with your family and friends. kids' area may be crowded and poorly serviced They have good venues for business meetings.
