My family and I did this tour in July. Our tour guide, Mohamad, was awesome. We had 3 children 7, 5, and 3 and he did a great job helping us keep them busy! He was so awesome with the kids, even giving them nicknames and helping hold and keep them contained. He helped us customize the tour to maximize our experience yet keep the kids happy! The tour was a great balance between fun site seeing and learning the awesome history of Ancient Egypt. We added a local Egyptian lunch which was fantastic. I highly recommend this half day tour, especially for those with small children. Well worth it.
Mohammed was a really excellent guide. He made the history come to life, telling the stories of Alexander the Great, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Ramesses. And all this amid the power-plays of the great ancient kingdoms.
His English is excellent and it never felt like he was stuck on a script. When we were finished with the tour, he suggested some really great restaurants near our hotel one famous, atmospheric and expensive, one cheap and clean, and a local ahwa coffee house.
Memphis and Sakkara are interesting places to visit. You can see the development of the pyramid tombs, plus some beautiful carved reliefs. If you're continuing onwards in Egypt to the Valley of the Kings, I expect there are probably better chances to see similar things.
Practical stuff: the car was very clean and Fula was a good driver. We visited the sites as advertised and weren't asked to make any extra stops at gift shops or other vendors.
Seeing the statues of Ramses !! at Memphis in the open air museum was interesting as you could walk all around the statues. Our guide explained that in an area behind the museum the historians thought there may be other statues still buried. After Memphis we went to the pyramids at Sakkara which are older than the Giza pyramids. The drive between the two sites gave our guide time to discuss the history of the area.
The Sakkara step pyramid was incredible! It's really close to Giza. Memphis didn't have as much, but it was still great to see. Our tour guide Tito was so informative! I highly recommend asking for him!
