Highly recommended! I have found the “Camel Ride and Quad Biking combo tour around the pyramids” on here. But i also customized it to give me some time to go inside the big pyramid, the operator was very helpful to accommodate my request. My tour guide “Omar Mataro” has been very helpful and knowledgeable, he advised me what’s the best way to structure my tour, starting with the pyramid, then the camel ride, then the quad bikes. He picked me up on time at 7:00am, and drove me to Giza, we arrived at 8:00am, i went inside Khofo pyramid, i was the only one there - because its early. Then we went to the camels, and they put me on a camel and took me to the panoramic view, the boy who was holding the camel was helpful to takes photos of me. On the way to the quad bikes Omar stopped me close to the sphinx and took many photos of me. Then we went to the quad bikes station, where they gave me my own quad bike, they took another quad bike and we went to the desert to view the pyramids f
My wife & I booked a private tour through the "Get Your Guide" app. We were lucky enough to be assigned Ahmed Elsayed. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, well spoken and passionate about his job. If you book a tour, I recommend that you specifically request Ahmed Elsayed. Highlights of the Cairo tour included riding camels at the second viewing point at the pyramids where all three are in view. In addition, the museum was filled with extremely impressive artifacts. We actually ended up booking a second tour with Ahmed Elsayed two days later to Alexandria. On that tour we visited the Kim al-Shoqafa, Pompey's Pillar, Qaitbay Citadel, the Alexandria Library and had a lovely meal on the waterfront.
The tour was exceptional. The tour guide Ashraf very knowledgeable and kind also the driver Draz very helpful, both of them was awesome making me comfortable as i am a women travel alone from the get go until the end of the tour and respectful. The pyramid, the food and the museum was excellent. Ashraf is exceptional explaining with the Egypt history and I learned so much and fluent in english. The baazar its ok but still enjoyable also i love learning the papyrus. Overall the best day ever, will recommended 100%. Thanks so much!!!
We went on a wonderful day with Heba. Her level of English was fantastic and she had clearly studied and memorised very well all the relevant facts / anecdotes about the sites! We felt very at ease walking around and were able to answer questions freely. Heba had a lovely spirit to her and the day flew by. We managed to pack a lot in, and despite the Library being unavailable due to the Covid-19 situation, Heba improvised really well and took us to some other equally amazing locations.
We waited outside the gates of the museum but the rep with the tickets was waiting inside, this could have been made clearer to us on the information provided. We didn't have a guide just used 'Skip the Line' which as it happened there was no queue (due to the lack of tourists because of the Coronavirus) but when there is a queue it would be well worth doing.
