These tombs are a bit out of the way as they are in Saqqara and not with the main pyramids. This tomb is very well preserved with beautiful carvings showing everyday life in ancient Egypt. Since they are a bit out of the way we had the place to ourselves when we visited with a local guide.

Some of the best persevered tombs in Upper Egypt. Of course there's a local there you can pay 10LE to take pictures. Don't miss these tombs in Sakkara

we have been here three times and we still in awe by the enormity and craftsmanship of these tombs. Imagine the ingenuity and work it took to construct these tombs over couple thousands of year ago. If you ever visit Cairo then the pyramids are a MUST!!!
