What people are saying about Giza
We were visiting Egypt for the first time, and no trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to the Great Pyramids! After a lot of searching & evaluation of different options, we zeroed in on this tour, and even though this option was new, we decided to go ahead with this. And what followed later, was purely awesome. We had an amazing day, as we got to know about the rich cultural history behind the different pyramids, courtesy our guide, Mr. Sam (Osama Nasef), who with his vast knowledge, helped us understand the beautiful history of each of the Pyramids (Including the ones at Dahshur & Saqqara). He really helped us travel through time, into the past, and helped us understand and explore so many things, which otherwise we would have clearly missed. Sam is very patient, has tremendous knowledge & is super friendly too! We had an awesome experience in this tour, and highly recommend this. Thank you so much! :) PS: Sam is also an amazing photographer, do ask him to show his photos!
My partner and I had an amazing morning with our tour guide Fatma and the driver. She was very friendly and you could tell she loves her job. She told us enthusiastically about the history of Egypt and answered all of our questions. Everything was arranged as the itinerary described it. We first saw the piramides of Giza and the Sfinx. There was plenty of time to make pictures and Fatma took her time to make some great photo's of us together. The camel ride was a life time experience! The camels are well cared for. Fatma even showed us how they make papyrus and how Egypt aromatherapy works. After that we went for a delicious lunch in a restaurant of Giza. We would highly recommend this tour and Fatma especially!
We of course paid the extra to go in the Great Pryamid, but we even got to go inside the newly opened Bent and Red pyramids (opened July 19)! Barely any tourists in those! These were on the top of our list. Tell the guide you'd like to skip the shopping because you're there to see pyramids. Had we thought to do that earlier, we would have had time to squeeze in one more with hieroglyphics on the inside. Over all, our guide was very knowledgeable and full of spunk. We hit all the pyramids we'd been aiming for, but it would have been more expensive to do it by ourselves from my rough math.
My tour guide was very knowledgeable, and gauged my particular interests to ensure we covered what was of most interest to me. The four hours was just right, with a brief rest break, to see the most important exhibits and get a general overview of the chronological exhibits on the first floor. The tour guide timed and directed the tour in a way to avoid the largest crowds which allowed me the opportunity to take my time where I wanted. Well done!
We met Hammi and our driver who picked us up from the hotel, and drove to Giza. Hammi was very informative, explained us a lot of interesting things that we didn't know. He gave us as much time as we needed to explore for ourselves and all the trip was in a very good atmosphere. I would really recommend this tour for whoever wants to know more than what's written in Wikipedia and wants to explore the great pyramids and the Sphinx
