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

73 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.

This is the second largest pyramid in Egypt, it is fascinating and one must go inside the pyramid on a great spiritual path.

Getting inside this pyramid is as much exciting as getting into the Great Pyramid. By the way, Khafre's pyramid IS NOT the Great pyramid, although it seems larger than that of Khafre's father, Khufu. It just stands on higher ground. The pyramids of Khafre and Khufu (the Great Pyramid) are open for visitors (extra ticket for each). Upon entrance and before you leave the ticket office, check which pyramids are open or not on a big board. Remember that once you're inside you must bring your extra tickets with you. CURRENT PRICES (DECEMBER 2020) - Giza Plateau (general admission): EGP 200 - The pyramid of King Khafre - interior: EGP 100 PHOTOGRAPHY You won't be allowed to take cameras with you. Only cellphones are allowed. Be aware that if you're alone (no one with you or a tour guide), you will probably need to leave your stuff with the guards at the entrance, which I really don't think is a good option. BAKSHEESH (TIPS) You will certainly be followed by the guards upon entrance because you will be their chance to get a tip. They will insist and insist and insist for you to give them your cellphone so that they can take lots of pictures of you. You have two options: either you accept it or not. If you don't, maybe you'll need to be a bit rude to convince them to leave you alone. But believe me: they will insist. hahahahaha But if you accept it, tip them ONLY in the end, not when you give them your cellphone, because they will take lots of pictures of you and then will certainly ask you more. Some of them will whine and grumble, but be firm and say "that is all I have". Don't be shy and don't feel intimidated. You will experience that lots of times in Egypt. Get used to it. Photographing is one of my favorite hobbies, but, believe me, your cellphone will be a better option (in lots of temples in Egypt). As long as the royal chambers are really dark, you would definitely need a tripod inside... That was an amazing experience and I really recommend it. Questions? Send me a message. I’ll be more than happy to help you to make your trip to Egypt even better!

Looks taller than the "great" pyramid as it is on a higher elevation. This one does not have an entrance to it like the great pyramid does

Always wanted to see the Pyramids and we’ve decided to go in Nov 2020. Because of the pandemic, there weren’t many tourists there. I’ll say there were more vendors and camels than tourists! Camel rides are US$ 20 per person. Pyramid is beautiful and just amazing to see in person!

The place is the vibe are amazing. What really bothered me was the sellers who were trying to force their sales pitch. That ruined our experience.
