Long Hot Wonderous. Could Have Been Better Could Have Been A Lot Worse

Pick up 2am. Return 8pm. The drive was uncomfortable too many in the mini van plus the AC was inefficient. Egyptologist courier was friendly and knowledgeable but in too much of a hurry in the museum. 15-20 minutes 'free' time after her wizz around tour was not enough. At the pyramids and sphinx, which are mind blowing amazing when viewed for the first time but again we were hurried from one to the other. eg: We stopped in a car park to the left of the Sphinx and being in a wheelchair plus using a stick for support I struggled but managed the few steps to the viewing platform. We were rushed so I didn't have time to see the Sphinx front-on. A bomb went off close by about 400mtrs from us and no one took any notice. For the price of the trip, around £50 per person, 'Get Your Guide'/'Egyptia Travel' provide a good service. For comfort there are plenty of more expensive options available. With the museum & optional boat trip on the Nile the overall trip was an unforgettable experience.

Wonderfully Informative experience with great guide from Emo Tours

We had a great tour with Maged from Emo Tours (17 years experience) who gave a detailed tour of some of the fabulous site locations around the Great Pyramid area (not just pyramids & Sphinx. He gave insights into the religious relationship between Pharaohs/Gods/People spanning thousands of years. We also arranged a camel ride - great fun. Then went to the Museum and Maged highlighted important pieces relevant to great Pharaohs (including Tutankhamen & Mummies) and shared some of his extraordinary knowledge. We asked endless questions and Maged filled in so many blanks. Then off to the the bazaar and excellent lunch (barbecued Kofta and Chicken was great). Very happy to recommend Emo Tours & particularly Maged. Excellent driver made us feel very Safe. We were so happy we went the next day to Saqqara, Memphis & Dahshur. Saqqara is awesome & not overrun with tourist buses. You have time & space to absorb so much. It is a MUST-SEE & early pyramids/ site put Giza pyramids in perspective.

A nice day, as we've seen the pyramids !

The + : A great day, as we've seen astonishing places (Pyramids, Cairo Museum, Sphinx). We had a great guide named Rimo. She's fluent in English and in French, and gave us interesting advices and information, even about avoiding crooks on sites ( you will be purchased for tips all day long) . Don't hesitate to ask if she's available the day you will be visiting ! The - : - Even though the organization as a whole is well-handled (hotel-airport transferts, food, fast entrance on sites…), you will face many waiting times if you do not opt in and pay cash for many optional tours such as Nile Cruise, Camel Ride, Entrance Inside Kheops Pyramid etc... If you've always dreamt of seeing the pyramids, you won't be disappointed, but be aware that it will took you a very long day ==> we had to leave our hotel at 3.00AM and returned back at 10.00 PM … :) Enjoy your trip

How can one go to Egypt and not travel to see the pyramids.

Good organisation. Early call in the morning so travel is comfortable at night. Two drivers were excellent. In Cairo the guide awaits you there. The National Museum is great but very busy. Stay close to the group and hope you don't get two ladies who wanted to take pictures of everything thus eating up our time. Lunch was good as well. The Pyramids are spectacular. Beware of the heat though. The trip on the river Nile is not to be missed. Return journey good to, although a bigger bus could make things more comfortable.

Fantastic value for money for a big sip of Egypt!

My guide Yassin was great as was the driver: 10 minutes early, great tour, easy driving and getting around. You will learn a lot about the history of ancient Egypt and get a the vibe of modern Egypt also.
