Our driver and photographer (Ramy) picked us up at the hotel punctually in the morning before we went to Giza in an air-conditioned car. During a small stopover we met our tour guide Mahmoud Emam. We then continued to our first stop in Memphis & Saqqara before heading to Giza. When we got there, we first visited the interior of the Cheops Pyramid; Then we went on to the agreed half-hour camel ride tour on the Gizeh site. The last point of the program was the visit to the Sphinx. During this time, Ramy took great photos of us, which will be sent to you later via a download link. At the end there was a delicious meal in a nearby restaurant. Conclusion: You could ask both of them any questions at any time, which were also answered very well. You felt like you were in good hands at all times. Would book the tour again at any time! Many thanks also to Rania (travel agent)

We visited with Sherif Menfi, the pyramid of Saqquara and the pyramids of Giza. He and his driver arrived on time at our accommodation and from the first moment they were welcoming, friendly and nice! In addition to the water included in the price of the excursion, they offered us a very good sugar cane juice (local specialty) for the sole pleasure of sharing it with us and letting us taste some of the typical products of the place. Sherif is very nice and friendly, he put us at ease right away, at the end of the day we felt like we went on a trip with a friend. The visits to the places of interest were beautiful and unforgettable: impeccable his explanations, perfect Italian and knowledge of the terrifying Egyptian culture! He is also a great photographer! He himself offered to take pictures of us in the most scenic spots. We took several tours during our Cairo vacation, but this was the best ever!
