    We had an excellent day exploring the pyramids. Our guide was great. He was highly professional and taught us a lot. We could not have been happier with him. We did feel slightly rushed at each of the stops. This was probably due to the number of sites and distance covered in the allotted time for the tour. We barely stopped at the Sphinx and only saw it from the road. We would recommend skipping the camel ride unless you really want to do it. Even though the itinerary lists a 30 minute camel ride, ours only lasted about five minutes. The camel handler was very uninterested, took some terrible pictures, and then asked for a big tip from each of us. In hindsight we wish we spent those few minutes elsewhere. We did take the time to go inside the Great Pyramid and the Red Pyramid and enjoyed both of them. The Red Pyramid especially takes some physical endurance maneuvering through the narrow passageway, but we felt like it added to the adventure. We do highly recommend this tour as a way to see the pyramids and learn a lot of history. However, if you want to have the time to wander around and thoroughly explore the sites, this might not be the best tour for you.

    This tour was amazing. We had the pleasure of having Fatima as our main tour guide, and Khalifa and Mahmood to accompany us in the evening of each day, all were great individuals. Fatima was great, always on time, very knowledgeable, friendly with a great sense of humor. She was very flexible and changed the itinerary per our request a little to accommodate the additional mosque we wanted to see in Cairo and additional time we wanted to spend in Bazar. We had great conversations along the way from one site to the other which made even long distance driving in traffic pleasant. The driver was extremely patient and skillfull with navigating the traffic. Khalifeh showed us a restaurant with really good Koshari (Egyptian traditional food) and Mahmood took us to a coffee shop near Nile for a pleasant tea and sweet at the end of a very long day sightseeing. Overal, highly recommend this tour and all the awesome guides.

    This tour was amazing. Seeing the pyramids and getting to go inside was a dream come true. Ibrahim was our tour guide for the second time on our trip and we were so happy about that. He is the best guide we had while in Egypt. He explained so much history and while driving to Dahshur and Saqqara explained the modern life in Egyptian villages. He took so many great pictures for us as well. We ran a little over our time but he did not act rushed or bothered by this at all. The company uses WhatsApp for communication, which is common in Egypt, and they were great and timely. I definitely recommend this tour company and to ask for Ibrahim as your tour guide. He is friendly, funny, laid back, and seems genuinely passionate about his job. You won't be disappointed!

    The trip exceeded all of our expectations. We were picked up 8am sharp from our hotel and right from the start Ashraf made us feel welcome and very comfortable. We had our tour around the Pyramids, Sphinx (including a camel ride), Saqqara (Step Pyramid & Tombs) and then had lunch with Ashraf before being taken back to our hotel. The tour was perfect, and Ashraf is a genuinely fantastic tour guide and a brilliant person. I can't recommend Tree of Life Tours more, and if you're booking, try and ask for Ashraf Zakhary specifically, I promise you won't be disappointed!

    Yasser es un excelente guia, apasionado y conocedor de su cultura. Hizo que el viaje fuera muy entretenido y que el tiempo se pasará rapidísimo explicando cada cosa en detalle y aclarando todas las dudas que le preguntamos El recorrido inició con las pirámides de que Keops, Kefren y Miserinos seguido por un recorrido en camello muy divertido Cabe la pena señalar que desde el inicio del tour ya se nos hizo un estimado de los precios los cuales por cierto eran bastante accesibles Visitamos también la pirámide escalonada y la ciudad de Menfis para terminar la tarde con una cena en un restauran con una vista espectacular a la esfinge y las pirámides Sin duda uno de los mejores guías en toda Egipto y nada que decir del conductor Mohamed. Siempre dispuesto a ayudar. Incluso me ayudo a tramitar la comora del SIM. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    If you've ever wanted the essential Egyptian experience, this is the way to do it. Khaled, our tour guide, were extremely knowledgeable and professional as well as flexible with respect to your preferred pacing through the day. Not a single question I had were left unanswered and i had quite a few of them; Khaled's English speaking skills we're perfect and being chauffeured around in a private car is by far the easiest way for a tourist like me to get around the mighty country of Egypt. Besides I've got the chance to experience a true hidden gem of Egypt's multitude of ancient monuments, Dashur felt like everything Egypt was supposed to be in my imagination, even more so than Giza. The majestic pyramids towering silently over the Saharan dunes, and far away from the big crowd of tourists, really allowed you to take a breath and just try to comprehend the vast size and great age of these structures. Not only did I have the chance to enter the tomb of the Red Pyramid but also to experience the peculiarly shaped Bent Pyramid. Although it was closed for maintenance when we visited and as such couldn't enter it, we did get the opportunity to wander around it, the best part being that we we're completely alone there. Being completely alone in the desert with just you and the pyramid made the experience very up close and personal in a way that is hard to describe with words, you really have to be there to understand what I mean. Definitely the high point not just on the tour, but on my whole stay in Egypt, the fact that food was included and that our planned tour could be amended a bit without extra cost to swap one planned attraction for another were just the icing on the cake. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough, it is guarantied to leave you satisfied.

    The trip exceeded our expectations. We were picked up in the morning with a nice car with air conditioning and wifi. The tour guide Khaled was like a walking encyclopedia, he could answer everything about past and present Egypt. First we visited Dashur, Sakkara then Giza with a camel trip. We had visited the papyrus museum the day before this trip, so Khaled offered us other other options to adapt the day to our needs. Besides the main attractions we stopped at a lovely restaurant which served delightful food, i myself ordered fish from the red sea. In short summary the day was simply amazing.

    Wir hatten die private, anpassbare Tour rund um Kairo gebucht und uns für Sakkara und Dashur entschieden. Unser Führer war Khaled Mamdoh. Er spricht fließend Deutsch und Englisch, ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Während der Tour konnte er uns die Welt des alten Ägyptens sehr lebhaft vor Augen führen, man merkt, dass seine Expertise auf dem Gebiet sehr groß ist. Auf Anpassungen der Tour wurde prompt reagiert, sodass die Tour wirklich zu einem indivuellen Erlebnis wurde. Wir wurden problemlos von unserem Hotel abgeholt und in einem klimatisieren Minibus zu Dashur und Sakkara gefahren. Während der Fahrt wurde uns jeweils die Geschichte der Stätten erläutert, sodass wir gut vorbereitet ankamen. Auch die kleinen Anektoten zum heutigen Ägypten, meistens spontan ausgelöst durch Beobachtungen während der Fahrt, waren sehr informativ und angenehm. Tolles Angebot und toller Reiseführer. Wer sich intensiv mit der Geschichte des alten Ägyptens befassen möchte, dem sei eine solche private Tour geraten, da sie einfach ein viel intesiveres Erlebnis bietet, als dies mit Sammelgruppen möglich ist.
