You have to pay the ticket fee depending on your nationality, starting from 100 LE. Most of it were under construction and hence couldnt see all of it

Get a taxi out and see Cairo life on the way. A guide is useful but not essential. Allow 2 - 3 hours for the whole trip.

Not a good choice to visit. Some relics to see but it would be good if some of the guards begging took some time to clean up the place a bit. Wouldn't visit again or recommend this spot.

Another step-pyramid, Sakkara/Saqqara/Saccara, & more archaeological ruins around the old capital of Egypt, Memphis. It is definitely worth it to have a guided-tour at these type of locations just for the information alone.
