The step pyramid of King Zoser always grabs my attention every time I see it - but Serapeum of Saqqara to the north west of the pyramid REALLY grabs me. It was a burial place for Apis (sacred) bulls during the reign of Amenhotep III....More

Isn't this the oldest man-made structure in the world. You can't go in, there is no inside. The drive there, though, takes you by oxen-pulled water systems, white flat-roofed houses, children playing.

Sakkara was the highlight for us. Not crowded at all and very informative. We enjoyed it more than the Giza pyramids. Memphis is an open air museum that was pretty small. It has one spectacular statue. If you are out going to Sakkara then visit...More

Sorry, we traveled with On the Go but i do remember them saying that they did private trips. Also, a couple of people on our tour used taxis to get around. Many quality hotels have shuttle buses. Have a great trip.
