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.

Rashid Tour Guide organized our visit to the Mosque of Muhammad Ali. It was an excellent tour and is more than the mosque but includes old castle remains, prison and museum. The view of Cairo and the Nile is beautiful from that elevation, and the mosque is easily accessible for non-Muslims. Rashid explained everything clearly and made it such an enjoyable and educational experience. I had not seen this site on my first visit to Cairo years ago, but I'm very glad I went this time.

Definitely worth a trip to snap some sweet pics and tour the mosque. Post covid times it was almost empty so we snapped some great photos and had a relaxed experience.

A truly beautiful mosque and the grounds were lovely too. The lights inside were spectacular. Definitely worth the stop.

Don't forget to bring your face mask because you'll be required to wear it. The mosque is empty those times due to the pandemic, which was pretty amazing for us. My wife and I - along with our tour guide - could be inside totally alone. A very peaceful silence. During our visit, it was time for prayer (2nd prayer around midday). Our tour guide was praying and a couple of people joined him. It was very beautiful to see it. The famous clock outside, which was a gift from King Louis-Philippe of France in return for the obelisk removed from the Luxor temple, is under maintenance.
