    Tour was great! LOVED our tour guide. (I can't remember her name) There was no lunch break for the entire day so come prepared!

    A fabulous tour ! Our guide Mahmoud inspired us with his knowledge, his passion and his humour.
    We thoroughly enjoyed the papyrus school, the weaving school and the perfume factory. A great day !

    As usual with Viator.....we had an excellent tour. Our guide spoke excellent English and made changes to the itinerary due to my mobility problems. He was knowledgeable and gave us an in depth overview of the three sites. We then visited the Coptic Church in a Cave which was very interesting.

    We were picked up promptly by our guide Shrouk, a very pleasant and knowledgeable Egyptologist, and our first stop was Saqqara and the step pyramid and funerary complex of King Djoser, Shrouk explained everything in great detail, she was very attentive making sure my husband who walks with a stick was safe at all times. We were then very surprised to offered the chance to go inside the pyramid of King Unas, this is a small pyramid but beautifully decorated inside, with the walls carved with hieroglyphics. The attendants for a small tip, shone a torch on to the alabaster sarcophagus and a imagine of the King in base relief. We then returned to the car to go to Dahshur, stopping on the way at a carpet school, with a large shop attached, where we were shown many carpets but with no pressure to buy. At Dahshur, is the 4th dynasty pyramids of King Sneferu, we drove past the red pyramid, and walked round the bent pyramid and when we got behind the pyramid, we saw the Queen or Ka pyramid, which we went into and found it enjoyable. We were then surprised again when we found we could go into the Bent pyramid as well. This pyramid was the most difficult to enter, as the entrance corridor is very long and steep, (on hands and knees or crouching) to the bottom, and then 110 wooden steps to get to the top, to the burial chamber. We then made are way back to the car, and drove to the red pyramid. There we were given a very informative history of the 2 pyramids, but we decided not to go into the Red pyramid as we were both quite tired at this stage. The entrance to the Red pyramid is a steep climb up as the entrance is half way up the side. We then drove to Memphis for quick visit as there is nothing to see there apart from a few statues.
    We highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in pyramids and the Egyptology..
    A VERY big thank you to Shrouk who is an excellent guide.

    Adel was a great guide. He has a wealth of knowledge, and will give you as much or litttle as you want.
    He also tailored the trip and was not pushing the stops at shopping places (which is typical).
    Would recommend this, but ask specifically for Adel.

    Highly professional service with knowledgeable and easy to understand guide. He was cool with us showing up an hour later than the tour was supposed to happen and he even picked us up from the faraway airport at a reasonable fee and took us to all places listed in the web page, along with the option of seeing other shops along the way. Our other tour guide mislead us into going to these shops where you get pressured into buying things you don't want I think they get money to do this but our guide for this tour was upfront about it and didn't mind not going. We got to see some pretty amazing things! He was also great at keeping those who wished to extort money from us in other ways out of our reach, so it was almost like having a bodyguard there with you, which is really comforting in Egypt. Our other tour guide also hiked up the price quite a bit and then made us pay for each site. This guide on the other hand is at a very reasonable price and the price of admission to all of these sites is included. I highly recommend for anyone visiting Cairo!! :

    Excellent and funny guide - patiently answered my million questions.
    At mid day I was hungry so we stopped at a really nice outdoor restaurant for a late lunch.

    We had an excellent guide for our tour who was willing to rearrange some of the details. As we had already visited Memphis a couple of weeks earlier, we were not inclined to go there again, so we were able to spend more time at Saqqara and Dahshur. Our guide Henry had worked four years with Hawi Zawass and was an experienced Egyptologist so he was knowledgeable about many aspects of the sites. It was not just book learning. He showed us part of the Saqqara site that many tourists don't get to see and that were important to us, like the inside of the pyramid of Unas and the pyramid texts. He and the driver were patient with us when we wanted a closer look at the Red Pyramid and the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur to collect stone souvenirs. They found us a rest room in the middle of the desert at a carpet weaving shop and stopped for water as well. I highly recommend them. They were on time picking us up and dropping us off at the Sphinx as we requested. A really wonderful experience. Nancy Welsh
