    Le chauffeur et le guide étaient ponctuels. Ils étaient très agréables, attentionnés. Le chauffeur conduisait très bien, et il y avait la clim. Le guide Sameh F. était excellent, il nous as donné beaucoup de détails très intéressants sur les sites visités et sur l'histoire du pays. Il était très professionnel, nous a permis d'éviter la foule et nous a fait de belles photos.

    If I could give this a 10, I would. Amazing tour inside to see the tombs at the Step Pyramid. We were the only 2 people inside. Khaled is an amazing guide.

    L'excursion en elle-même est bien mais passer voir, (juste pour voir soi disant) les tapis, nous avons refusé et ça n'a pas plu, il faut se battre pour ne pas aller où on ne veut pas, puis devoir acheter un souvenir dans une boutique, (juste pour regarder ENCORE) et être séquestré dans une voiture à 13 h, alors qu'on avait bien signalé que nous avions un taxi de prévu à 13h00 à l'hôtel, pour nous faire encore acheter un bijou, je trouve ça incroyable. Non, je ne reprendrais pas ce tour opérateur, je prendrais un guide sur place avec une obligation de faire ce que je veux. Ils ont quand même été jusqu'à nous arrêter devant la bijouterie à 13h et nous montrer les bijoux dans la voiture... Énorme.. C'est du harcèlement et c'est dommage. Mais comme ils disent, vous n'êtes pas obligés, c'est juste pour regarder. Mais oui,mais oui...

    Die Tour war gut, der guide sprach gut deutsch und hat uns viele Informationen gegeben. Statt den angegeben 4 Stunden hat die Tour jedoch 8 Stunden gedauert, was für uns kein Problem war, aber bei der 0lanung mit berücksichtigt werden sollte. Außerdem wollte der guide uns Sachen verkaufen, was ein wenig seltsam war.

    Amazing tour! It was nice to go and see different pyramids. It was not crowded at all so it’s even better. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable!

    Bonne prise en charge, pas de temps d'attente, trajet agréable. Mauvais point, le guide n'est pas venu dans les pyramides et le shopping.

    What a fantastic day trip from Cairo to the Dahshur Pyramids Sakkara and Memphis City! My outstanding guide, Mahmoud Afifi, did an incredible job guiding me around and proved not only highly informative and knowledgeable about the pyramids, statues, and artwork in the tombs, but entertaining and energetic. Mahmoud was very organized and not only was prompt for the start of our tour, but provided me with plenty of water throughout what was a super warm day. He took many pictures and some videos of me as well, and aside from being a terrific guide he is a very good photographer as well! You can see three of his photos attached to my review. The tour was excellent--a busy, but not hectic, day of the Dahsur Pyramids Sakkara and Memphis which was a decided highlight of my two weeks in Egypt. I highly recommend this day tour and am confident you will enjoy it as much as I did!
