    We had a wonderful time visiting the Pyramids of Giza and visiting 2 more places specialized in Papyrus and perfumes as well as having lunch at a great little place. We were able to go into the great pyramid as well as 2 other tombs. In addition, we also went on a great Camel ride and saw the Sphinx. The pick up was on time and the trip was very organized with a great tour guide and driver. The Guide Amani was very honest about and did a great job. We had a wonderful day and were very satisfied with the outcome. Highly recommended!

    Our tour guide gave us the history of the pyramids and allowed us to get photos of a lifetime. It was a truly amazing experience. The timing of the tour was great. We loved at a pace that was comfortable for us. I would definitely recommend this tour.
