What people are saying about Giza
We were visiting Egypt for the first time, and no trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to the Great Pyramids! After a lot of searching & evaluation of different options, we zeroed in on this tour, and even though this option was new, we decided to go ahead with this. And what followed later, was purely awesome. We had an amazing day, as we got to know about the rich cultural history behind the different pyramids, courtesy our guide, Mr. Sam (Osama Nasef), who with his vast knowledge, helped us understand the beautiful history of each of the Pyramids (Including the ones at Dahshur & Saqqara). He really helped us travel through time, into the past, and helped us understand and explore so many things, which otherwise we would have clearly missed. Sam is very patient, has tremendous knowledge & is super friendly too! We had an awesome experience in this tour, and highly recommend this. Thank you so much! :) PS: Sam is also an amazing photographer, do ask him to show his photos!
The tour was informative and interesting. The guide (Aya) was professional and full of information. I do feel the Coptic Quarter could have a more comprehensive visit. We missed a few main buildings and it is only when I asked to see them, that I was allowed. I would also have liked to have seen the Coptic Museum which we walked past. Khan El Khalili was canceled (was only told that day) as apparently it was closed to tourists that day (New Year's Eve). An alternative was only offered when I made a fuss and called the tour company. They were happy to cut the tour short and bring me home. What a waste! I demanded something else much to the rep's annoyance. For this reason, only 3 stars. I would not recommend this tour company. I was brought to another mosque which was great as well as another museum . I paid for it myself. The tour company also didn't respond to any of my 4 emails seeking confirmation; the number listed doesn't work (I and other Egyptians tried it).
My tour guide was very knowledgeable, and gauged my particular interests to ensure we covered what was of most interest to me. The four hours was just right, with a brief rest break, to see the most important exhibits and get a general overview of the chronological exhibits on the first floor. The tour guide timed and directed the tour in a way to avoid the largest crowds which allowed me the opportunity to take my time where I wanted. Well done!
We met Hammi and our driver who picked us up from the hotel, and drove to Giza. Hammi was very informative, explained us a lot of interesting things that we didn't know. He gave us as much time as we needed to explore for ourselves and all the trip was in a very good atmosphere. I would really recommend this tour for whoever wants to know more than what's written in Wikipedia and wants to explore the great pyramids and the Sphinx
Excellent tour of Sakara, Sphinx and the Pyramids. Mahdy and our driver Bassem were excellent. Polite and friendly and knowledgable. Mahdy was a photographer as a hobby and took some amazing photos for us. We will always remember our day with them. Priceless memories from a memorable holiday in Egypt.
