This was one of the best guided tours I’ve ever been on, in large part because we had an excellent tour guide named Nesma. We enjoyed the tour so much that we booked another one for the next day at Memphis, Saqqara, and Dashur with the same tour guide. We were picked up at our hotel by a car with a dedicated driver, in addition to the tour guide (no other visitors—just my group of 2). We then went straight to the Giza pyramids (including Sphinx) to beat the crowds/heat. Our tour guide took amazing photos and made recommendations about how to best use our time. We were then taken to a papyrus art house for a presentation and opportunity to buy the art. Next we went to lunch at a local restaurant, which was very good—chicken and lamb. The food was included, and although the drinks were not included, they were very cheap. Next, we went to the Egyptian Museum where our tour guide showed us all the most important artifacts and knew a lot of history. Then went to the bazaar.
My tour with Mervat from Ocean Air Tours was incredible. She was very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. She made me feel very comfortable. Although I was in an unfamiliar place as a female traveling alone she made the experience one to remember. I look forward to visiting Egypt and touring with your company and Mervat again. Thank you
Great Tour, many informations about egyptian history. Thanks to our guide Maged. I recommend this tour also for families, we had a private tour and our daughter jumped, collecetd stones at the piramides. Thanks
amazing experience!! our guide Ayman was super helpful. explained the history of the pyramids and had no objections to stopping and taking pics for us. I highly recommend this trip And this guide
The museum was very very interesting. It would take days to see it all. Khan El-Khalili Basaar was a true experience. We have nothing like it in the USA. A must see.
