We had a fantastic day for our Pyramids tour with Salib, our guide and Essam our driver. We went for a day trip first to Saqqara, next to Dahshur and after a deli lunch to Gizeh and the Sphinx. Salib explains at the differents sights every important fact you need to know about ancient Egypt. A total plus is that Salib knows his ways even when there are crowds of tourists and he will find a quiet place where you have the impression of being alone there. You have questions? Salib will definetely answer them with his great knowledge of history. We traveled in a very convenient bus with Essam. Despite heavy traffic Essam stayed calm and we felt totally safe with him. Essam waited every time right at the exit so you can just jump on the bus to continue the tour. 10 points for Salib and Essam out of 10. Christian and Sami

Bossi was a wonderful guide! She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptian history, and enthusiastically answered all of our questions. The driver was capable and courteous. I felt safe and supported throughout. Small group allowed for a great flexibility and depth of exploration. The lunch food was wonderful. Long range pickup went well—did this tour during a layover and easily made my following flight.

This was the most enjoyable way to see the history of the dynasties located around Giza. A great tour guide and driver provided an informative and well-paced day. Friendly and knowledgeable, the history I learned was invaluable. I can't wait to come back and go on another tour.
