To you immediately suitable person who can show you what you do not see the “organized” tourists. Of course, this service is not free, but you know what you pay for. I guarantee that your enjoyment of self- inspection of the pyramid is much greater than that of those who “walk their” guides and comfortable buses await!

Shops are open late, too – some up to two hours of the night. In the morning, old lovers can travel by taxi at Saqqara, to look the other pyramids.
