From Cairo: Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara, Dahshur & Lunch
- Transportation included
- Duration: 8 hours
This is a fantastic tour. You get to visit pyramids at Giza, Dahshur and Saqqara and understand their connections. It’s a bit of a long day but worth it. The tour guide on the other hand not so great. The information on the tour is very specific: you go to 3 sights to visit pyramids but she kept trying to push other places and making it sound as if they were also tours but they were just shops (makes me wonder if she has a deal with them). If the guide offers to take you to a papyrus institute, aromatic oil shop or a hieroglyph necklace shop, say NO cause they will take time from your visit to one of the sights (it happened to me, I was rushed at one of the pyramids). Other than that, great day - I was the only one that booked the shared tour on that day so in the end I had a private tour.
I recommend this experience fully! There is nothing about this trip we would have changed. Our driver and guide were both incredibly efficient and friendly, and we appreciated we didn't have to worry about details but were able to just enjoy the experience. We were able to see an incredible number of sights and experiences (plus have lunch) along the way. Our guide, Amina, was quite knowledgeable and we appreciate her personal sense of Egyptian history and pride. We are honored to have been a part of this experience. As two American women traveling to Cairo for the first time, we weren't sure what to expect, but we are thrilled with this tour and the entire trip overall. Cario is a safe and exciting city rich with history, and we highly recommend to all.
Enjoyed this tour with “H” and would recommend him to anyone visiting Cairo. Of course, he had some amazing monuments to work with - the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx never fail to be awe inspiring. Seeing the earlier attempts at Saqqara and Dahshur were so interesting - especially the failed Bent Pyramid. This was my 4th and last tour in Cairo. My guides including H have all been so very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Cairo, Egypt and its history. They have truly enhanced my experience here and made me want to come back again - after the new Egyptian Museum opens!
Coming to Giza, Egypt and visited the Pyramids was a dream that came true. Maged, my tour guide, made it a very special and unique experience. He was very knowledgeable about the history, culture and traditions, and most importantly he and his crew: Ahmad the photograher and Ahmad the driver, contributed to made this experience fun, memorable, and "breathtaking". I highly recommend you to choose this activity, and make your dream come true.
We had a most enjoyable time on this tour. Our guide, Mena was excellent. He happily imparted his knowledge in a humorous and informative way, and answering our questions. We had ample time to stroll around the various locations, accompanied by Mena to point out the things of note. My one criticism would be lack of air conditioning in our transportation, as promised.
