    This tour is fantastic if you'd want to visit all major pyramids Egypt. We started the day by visiting the pyramids of Giza and the Sphynx, after which we stopped at an antiquities place where you can make your own name in a cartouche in silver or in gold (that was cool). After lunch we continued to Sakkara and Dahshour where we got to see the bent pyramid, the step pyramid, and got to enter one of the pyramids (very nice experience). We also got to visit a papyrus store where they show you how they make it.

    The tour company is very professional and our guide Khaled Mamdouh was great sharing his passion and telling us all about ancient Egypt stories. He was not the type of guide who pushes you towards buying things or seeing an attraction that needed extra payment, he gives you the choice and advises you and lets you decide which was very good of him. And of course he was always welcoming of any question that hit our minds :)

    Mustafa and the driver were very friendly, polite and on time. They drove me to all the pyramids and the Sphinx, provided me with great explanations and took a lot of pictures. I highly recommend this tour.

    Medhat and Abanob were amazing hosts for our tour - their attention to detail in taking us to places at just the right time of day was incredible.

    This was the best tour I've ever been on!!! Ahmed Elsayed Abdelhamed was a fantastic guide. All of the pyramids (red, bent, step, Giza) Memphis, an amazing traditional lunch, camel ride, and more! I never once had to ask Ahmed to take my picture, because he was always ahead of me on asking to take pictures for me. He knew the best places to get good pics and fun poses to do as well!! You CANNOT beat the price for this tour. Would recommend a hundred times over!!!

    We travelled with our 15 and 7 years old son and daughter. We wanted to avoid the confusion and use the best way our 2 days in Cairo and surroundings. Of course we wanted to go the Giza Pyramids but also wanted to explore Memphis, Dahchur and Sakkara and the kids were dying to ride a camel. Among the great offer of tours, we chose this one and it proved to be a good decision. Our guide Jimmy was very pontual, explain us the most important facts in Egipt history related to the places we visited, gave us tips about dealing and barging with locals, was very attencious to all of us, took us lunch to a very nice tradicional restaurant and gave us fresh water the whole trip (witch is a very important detail when you're facing egipt's high temperatures). The driver was also very professional and kept the van always fresh when we returned from the places we were visiting. Finally, our guide Jimmy went beyond his function as a tourist guide to a one day tour and was of great help in the process of changing hotel, since our first choice did'n't meet our expectations.
    We recommend this tour!

    I had a great time doing the tour. Mustapha was the tour guide, he texted me the day before and confirmed the appointment. He arrived right on the clock, he was knowledgeable and sincere. He explained each site with details with relevant historic perspectives. The included lunch was fantastic.

    The tour guide was hard working, knowledgeable and caring person. If you have 1or 2 days in Cairo definitely I suggest you take full day tour to capture the main pyramids of Cairo. One thing I disliked was the camel ride and picture, of course we need good picture with pyramids and camel if not why we try to ride the camel so please clear the goals with people about that from beginning and make sure he knows how to take pictures.

    I very much enjoyed the private tour and my tour guide Waleed did an excellent job. I was impressed by his knowledge of Egyptian culture and history. The tour was highly informative and Waleed found the right dosage to convey the essential story without information overload. It was an enjoyable experience and I highly recommend Waleed as a competent and knowledgeable tour guide.

    Emany is knowledgeable , flexible and professional. She made us feel very safe going around while in Cairo Egypt.We enjoyed her company and learned a lot about Egyptian culture and history .

    They are really good and hospitable given that it was our first time in Egypt.
    One thing I enjoy about this tour is that they bring us to Dahshur for the bent pyramid which not a lot of tour agency will bring (that bent pyramid is my fave! and we find the entire pyramid to ourselves!) how lucky!
