Our visit to Sakkara was great! To see the collossal statue of Ramesses II in the Memphis building up close was spectacular! It is laying down because the feet and base are broken off. Luckily this statue is one of a pair. The other one,...More

Lots of statues and pieces scattered around the old palace area (which is closed to tourists). There is a neat Sphinx and the statue of Ramses II is very impressive. Well worth a stop if you are touring Saqqara. Just spending time in this palmed...More

Very historical place. A must visit. Museum in the Memphis including giant Ramses the Great statue. Accessible, safe and secure. The only complaint is that is very dirty /tons of garbage every where. Sad.

Memphis and Sakkara have been was the last point of our travel on Nile, from Asswan to Cairo. When I saw the pyramids with all that camels and their riders in front of me, I felt myself at the ages of pharaons.

See my other review. This is the same site as the Saqqara pyramid. Vendors are aggressive but dont let that take away from your visit. The pyramids are cool but the tombs are even better here.

Surprisingly very good museum. It was a nice experience in reading 100 years old books in the museum.

There are many Pyramids in Sakkara but these this pyramid is quite famous and amazing. Though they are carrying out the renovation work, it is beautiful and overlooking the Sahara desert.

Memphis was ancient capital of Egypt, located south of Giza Pyramids. As one enters the compound, you are faced with a colossal statue of the great Pharaoh Ramses 2. There is a small museum inside of which you can again see him lying down with...More

Hi, the best thing to do is just get a local taxi for 3 - 4 hours but haggle hard on the price, if you can get the taxi for 50 Egyptian Pounds then you're doing OK
