This was a fantastic tour of the pyramids, Sphinx and sun boat. Maged is a fantastic guide. His knowledge of the pyramids is wonderful, and he is great at ensuring that we get great photos of our tour at the pyramids. He also ensured that we were not hassled by anyone, meaning we could really take in the experience of seeing the pyramids. There were also no unplanned stops along the way, which I had read about in so many tour reviews.

Ahmed is a very knowledgeable historian.. Speaks fluent English very cultured. Very safe for ladies travelling alone to use this operator. Only downside please check what's included l ended up paying another £200 Egyptian pounds to purchase ticket for entry to pyramids area. I assumed this with included in the trip cost.. Besides that I would highly recommend Ahmed.

Our Wessam guide picked us up at the hotel on time, even a little early. It was an unforgettable day. He brought us to eat at a very good local restaurant. Explained to us the history of the pyramids and the sphinx. We can only recommend it as well as the driver of the minibus who waited for us all the time. They were both very pleasant and helpful. Thanks again for this day.
