Is Memphis and Saqqara worth visiting?

Dahshur, Memphis, and Saqqara contain some of the oldest and best-preserved sites not only in Egypt, but in the world. Dahshur, Memphis, and Saqqara can be visited on a day trip from Cairo and Giza. And this day trip beat all of our expectations. Touring the pyramids of Dahshur feels like an adventure.
Is Sakkara in Memphis?
The modern towns of Dahshur and Saqqara lie within the administrative borders of historical Memphis. Wander around, explore, and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of some really, really old cities.
How long is the Pyramid tour?
approximately 8 hours
“How long is the Giza Pyramid tour?” The tour is approximately 8 hours. It depends, because you may spend additional time climbing inside the Pyramids, riding a camel, viewing the Egyptian Museum or shopping in Khan El Khalili Bazaar. My guide was Ali G., of Emo Tours, and he was fantastic.
