Pyramids of Dahshour
Dashur is not as popular among tourists as, say, Giza with the great pyramids. Nevertheless, there is something to see. Dashur is located about 30 km from Cairo and therefore, if you have an excursion to the Egyptian capital, it is worth stopping by here.

Dashur is famous for its pyramids built during the reign of the great pharaoh Snofru. By the way, scientists consider these structures to be the first tombs in the history of the king, erected according to new types of structures.
Another attraction in Dahshur is the Bent Pyramid got its name due to the irregular shape. At its construction, the builders for some reason changed the angle of the faces. Perhaps the Egyptians simply made a mistake, but historians attribute this construction move to the architects' concern for the strength and durability of the pyramid. The main thing, one can say, is the “revolutionary” difference between the Dashur Broken Pyramid and other Egyptian structures in that it has two entrances - the “traditional” northern one and almost no southern one.

Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids
Pharaoh Djoser from the III dynasty was the first of the Egyptian pharaohs to build a tomb in Saqqara. Before him, all the pharaohs were buried in the city of Abydos. He erected the first pyramid in Egypt, which has been preserved here to this day. It is Joser's step pyramid that is the main local attraction.

We had an amazing 2 day tour in Cairo at the Pyramids and a city tour with Emile our excellent, passionate and knowledgeable tour guide and qualified Egyptologist and our driver Waled. They both looked after us from the beginning of the trip with excellent service and great care for us. I would 100% recommend these guys!!

Deluxe Travel were great to deal with, we arranged a WhatsApp call the day before and spoke to Mona who was happy to tailor our package to suit our availability. We were met by Mohammed at the airport and he was very friendly and helped us get through the airport and to our hotel very quickly.

I highly recommend this tour. They were very punctual to picked us up at the time arranged. Mahmoud our guide was very helpful and kind and the driver Ramadan provided a smooth and safe trip for us. It was a tour full of history and stunning views and to end the day they still brought us to taste a traditional Egyptian dish called Koshary in a local restaurant which was a great experience. We are very thankful for the service provided.
Very good experience

A nice journey around the pyramids from Giza to Saqqarah. The most impressive thing was going trough the narrow passageway to get inside the Red Pyramid! Nice to see the hieroglyphs from the pharaoh accountant. Guide Mahmoud and driver Ramadan were gentle all the way. Be ready to give some tips for the guardian of the pyramids entrance.
An amazing experience

We were looking for a customized private tour to visit pyramids of Giza, Sphinx, Red Pyramid, and Bent Pyramid at Dahshur, and Step Pyramid of Zoser. Before the tour, the operation manager, Yasser, was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions and concerns.

During the tour, our tour guide, Henry, was very polite and attentive. We were impressed about how knowledgeable he was and felt he did an excellent job presenting the wonderful information of all those amazing sites. We went inside of 3 pyramids, did the camel rides, and had a tasty lunch in a restaurant with the great view of the pyramids. Due to covid concerns, we requested the tour guide to wear face mask and keep social distance, and Henry honored our request throughout the entire tour.

The private van was clean and spacious. The driver was very experienced and able to navigate through the traffic efficiently.

Overall we enjoy this tour completely. It's definitely one of the highlights of our Egypt trip.
Highly recommended!

Ahmed and Mohammed are an amazing team! Ahmed as a guide told us all the relevant history. He doesn't pressure you to buy anything, leaving you to do whatever you wish. Helped to get in all the attractions and everything went quite smoothly. As he said "he's job as a tour guide is to make you happy for the duration of the tour". He definitely delivered on that. We had a tour guide, a great photographer and a lot of laughs.
I definitely recommend anyone to get on this tour. By the way the food was delicious!
