Dahshur Pyramids Sakkara and Memphis City

The Dahshur, Sakkara and Memphis City tour was a great experience. The guide and driver provided an excellent tour. The time of the tour was just right and provided for a good experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone in Cairo. I would do it before visiting the Giza pyramids to learn the history leading up to the famous Giza.
