Tour was great, salib was extremely knowledgeable and we had such a fun adventure exploring the pyramids! He gave us a walk through of basic ancient Egyptian history and then tied it together at each of the sites. Our driver Adham was professional and got us around in a timely and safe manner! Highly recommend this tour.
