We had a very good trip with our guide. The guide gave us good information before we went to the pyramids and also helped us throughout by taking us to the right places, asked the right ppl to take pics or do the camel ride etc. At the end also took us to a food place that matched what we wanted. He also helped us get to the airport on time with the driver. The driver was very polite and professional as well and we are very happy with the whole trip. Our guide - Ahmed zaki Our driver - mohamed mowafi

This was a last minute spontaneous trip planned by us at 10pm for the next day and we are so glad we did it. Our tour guide Esraa was really good and accommodated us from the arrangement of airport collection and throughout the day. I would recommend book everything online including the collection from the airport or your hotel straight to the meeting point at pyramids to avoid the haggling with street traders.

Truly unique experience. We are family of four and had a great time on this tour. Everything was well organized and went smoothly, from pickup and transportations to visiting the pyramids without any side distractions. Our guide Sam was very knowledgeable and followed our pace. Great tour if you want to see and learn more about old Egypt.

It was just the right amount of time for the tour of the pyramids and the great sphinx. Ahmed Mohsen was a knowledgeable and kind tour guide. He ensured we felt prepared prior to and answered all our questions throughout. It was a great experience.

Amir Mounir was an excellent guide and we really enjoyed the tour! Enough time to see everything, good to know facts about history and generally a well organised tour.
