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.

We had a wonderful first day in Cairo with Mervat as our guide and Ramy. Mervat explained to us very well the sightseeing attractions before we saw them and then reinforced the message when we got closer to the attractions. We also got a general understanding of Egyptian culture, economy and living. She answered all of our questions with great english, professionalism and empathy. Ramy was a great driver, always took care of us, made sure we had water with us, snacks and was in a good mood, always very caring and stopping by the closest possible to the sightseeing attractions to avoid us having to walk too much. Ramy ensured we used hand gel sanitizer throughout the day as a covid protective measure. We felt safe, both followed Covid preventative measures with face masks and it felt safe visiting the pyramids given limited people (very empty) which was also great for pictures! I definitely recommend the tour and also travelling at this time of year. Great hospitality!

This trip was my favorite day of my vacation! Mahmoud and Remy made it so much fun. Mahmoud is so knowledgeable and really helps you feel apart of history. You will get to see the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, the Bent Pyramid, and Classical Pyramid here you can get some cool pictures and see how the progression of Pyramid building happened. You can go inside and see the tombs which you should do for at least one of them. Later in the day, you will get to go and see the three Giza Pyramids, climb up on the Great Pyramid, and all day you will have so many great photo opportunities. Mahmoud and Remy both helped record the experience and made the feel like you were hanging out with friends! Lunch is at a local restaurant and is very good with a variety of local dishes. When you book make sure you ask for Mahmoud and Remy with Ocean Air Travel, they seriously are the best!

I took a full day trip form Emo tours. My guide, Ola, was very professional and knowledgeable in her field. She explained and told a lot about the egyptian history. We also talked a lot about different cultures and Egypt in general. She is very passionate about her work, I highly recommend her as a tour guide. My driver Mahmoud did a great job taking us from places to places in the hectic traffic of Cairo. I felt safe during the whole your.

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
