Amazing day trip to Dahshur, Memphis and Sakkara with the Serapeum included.
My third day with Sayed Mahmoud to show me around and this time, as per his excellent recommendation, we visited Dahshur, Memphis and Sakkara. First I wanted to make a day trip to Luxor from Cairo, but Sayed advised me to do this one instead. And how right was he.
We started of in Dahshur, visiting the Bent and red pyramid of Sneferu. Again Sayed planned this day to match my needs perfectly. First of all, the site was pretty much empty of people. He told me that entering the pyramids was not easy and that was right. But it was a great experience to go in. The bent pyramid is a though one and the long steps down take a while, but then you really feel inside of the structure. The same goes for the Red pyramid, although slightly easier. As we left more people were coming, but I had a nice enough time by myself exploring the pyramids.
After that, and again Sayed patiently answering all my questions and having a very nice conversation about many things related to the history, we set off for Memphis.
In Memphis we saw the big statue of Ramses II and looked in detail at the craftsmanship of this colossus. The fact that Sayed was able to translate some of the hieroglyphics was such a rich experience. His passion when he talks about these sites really adds to the place. We saw the second largest sphinx in egypt, the one of Hatsepsut and walked around a bit on the site.
Then we set off for Sakkara, starting with the Serapeum, and add on to the tour I can really recommend. The tunnel system and especially large sarcophagi made a real impact. Seeing an experienced guide like Sayed in awe at the marvel of engineering transmitted a lot of energy. Then we went to the tomb of King Teti, before which Sayed taught me some hieroglyphics and I was able to read his name encarved in the tomb everywhere.
The tomb of grand vizier Kagemni followed and it was a not to miss part of this tour. The lively depictions of this important man's life really show what it was like back then and how similar things are now. Sayed pointed out some excellent details and I tried to add my own as well. I was slowly starting to feel like an amateur egyptologist.
We ended this day at the step Pyramid of kind Djoser. An iconic landmark with the giza Plateau in the back ground.
I cannot recommend enough how wonderful these sights were as they were most likely the highlight of my trip so far.
Thanks you, Sayed, for making it an unforgettable trip and the nice relaxing tea we had with the security guard.

Excellent tour and guide - recommended
Couldn’t have had a more knowledgeable guide than Ola nor a better driver than Mustafa. Ola really knew the history of Egypt and her English was excellent. She gave good advice about which pyramids to go inside and showed us some amazing sights. We had a fabulous half-day tour and she also took us to the shops where we could buy good souvenirs.

Knowledgable and Excellent guide
Oct 2021 • Solo
Excellent service provided by my Guide Olap and his driver. Olap speaks excellent english and very knowledgeable. That is what I required for my private trip. She is very detail and attention to small details. I discovered some new information of thd site which is not too well known. She also took me for a local place to have authentic Egyptian lunch. Her service extended into an curtesy, when I left a cooling towel in the car after the tour. When she was contacted. The driver drove back to my hotel for aspecial delivery. 5 star service all the way. I highly recommended Olap to anyway want tour service in Cairo and beyond.

Oct 2021 • Solo
This was such a great tour from the beginning. Both Mamdouh and Mohamed were very pleasant and fun to talk to. I could tell Mamdouh is very passionate about Egyptology and enjoyed his job. And Mohamed was great negotiating some of the rougher roads.
I definitely learned a lot on this tour. More than if I’d tried to do it on my own. The information I learned will definitely help me going forward in Luxor and other places.
I highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic day exploring pryamids
Very good tour taking in some wonderful history and some fantastic pyramids.

Ahmed (nickname Ahmed Jackson) was a great tour guide and made the tour come alive).

If you've seen Giza and want to experience a much more relaxed day exploring pyramids and ancient Egyptian culture, this tour is perfect.

Best Cairo Experience Ever
I rarely write this much about a review but this one was just different. Most of the Trip Advisor and Viator tours are really good don’t get me wrong. BUT this one was just EXCEPTIONAL. We were greeted by our tour guide, Ahmed Tonsi and Farg at 8AM on the dot. They had drinks and snacks ready for us in the car. We also found out it was just going to be us on this tour and loved the private tour experience. We made several stops at Saqqara, Dahshur, Memphis, Bent, and Red. Ahmed was very knowledgeable about everything as was basically a walking google the entire time. He even stopped to get us some local dates which we absolutely loved! He brought us to parts that we never knew was possible to see and made our trip to Egypt so much more authentic. Also, he has a great sense of taste in Egyptian rap music! That was definitely a bonus.

After the tour, Ahmed Tonsi and Farg stayed with us for two additional hours and took us through several stops. We stopped at a traditional papyrus making store, an Egyptian cotton shop, a perfume store that exported oils to the major Paris fashion houses (like the Dior and Chanel) of the world, and a kartush shop. We really appreciated them taking the time because as tourists, sometimes we don’t really know what’s authentic or not. But Ahmed and Farg went out of their way and gave us an extra two hours just so we can check off some of the items off our gift list.

First off if you’re in Egypt, do not skip the Saqqara and Dashur pyramids. It’s much more authentic and it was actually the original pyramids before the well know great Giza pyramids. Most importantly, do not do this tour without Ahmed Tonsi and Farg!

Thank you again for making the best thing we’ve done this trip!

Wonderful Egyptian experience.
Jul 2021 • Family
It was our first visit to Egypt and having a knowledgeable, attentive and reliable tour guide as Tonsi, made our tour an unforgettable one. Tonsi went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable at all times. Abdul the driver and Tonsi were very punctual and accommodating. He gave us a wealth of information about the sites. We inquire about places to go shopping and he is great to go shopping with.
We can’t wait to go back and have Tonsi taking us to experience more of his beautiful country and wonderful people.
