5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2017

We had an excellent guide for our tour who was willing to rearrange some of the details. As we had already visited Memphis a couple of weeks earlier, we were not inclined to go there again, so we were able to spend more time at Saqqara and Dahshur. Our guide Henry had worked four years with Hawi Zawass and was an experienced Egyptologist so he was knowledgeable about many aspects of the sites. It was not just book learning. He showed us part of the Saqqara site that many tourists don't get to see and that were important to us, like the inside of the pyramid of Unas and the pyramid texts. He and the driver were patient with us when we wanted a closer look at the Red Pyramid and the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur to collect stone souvenirs. They found us a rest room in the middle of the desert at a carpet weaving shop and stopped for water as well. I highly recommend them. They were on time picking us up and dropping us off at the Sphinx as we requested. A really wonderful experience. Nancy Welsh
