Absolutely fab...a total must do..highly recommended..thanks Tharwat

Received email confirmation and pick up time the evening before. The agent was waiting in reception at allotted time with our flight boarding passes (outward and return) and then we had transfer in private car to airport. Here security was very strict and extremely slow...2 complete security checks before boarding gate. Allow at least 1-1.5 hours extra time for this. There are no facilities other than toilets. Very short flight with drinks and biscuits. Met at other end in Cairo by tour guide who was easily identifiable. Group consisted of 7 adults. Had our own air con mini bus all day so could leave stuff in bus. Our guide Tharwat spoke good English and was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly. We agreed to go to Egyptian Museum instead of Sakkara and were glad we did. Tharwat included this in our original price. The included lunch was in a lovely restaurant overlooking the pyramids. As well as Giza plateau Tharwat took us to visit 2 Businesses (papyrus and oils) and a mall

This was an amazing experience! Totally recommend it!

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!

Pyramids are not to be missed, and this tour hits all the majors!

We of course paid the extra to go in the Great Pryamid, but we even got to go inside the newly opened Bent and Red pyramids (opened July 19)! Barely any tourists in those! These were on the top of our list. Tell the guide you'd like to skip the shopping because you're there to see pyramids. Had we thought to do that earlier, we would have had time to squeeze in one more with hieroglyphics on the inside. Over all, our guide was very knowledgeable and full of spunk. We hit all the pyramids we'd been aiming for, but it would have been more expensive to do it by ourselves from my rough math.

Impressive sites made even better by a knowledgeable guide

Great tour all around. Amro is a very knowledgeable and patient guide. I was adamant about the camel ride but, having done it, would definitely recommend it. You get to see the pyramids from a completely different angle. The camel walkers are also very friendly and take great pictures of you on the camel with the pyramids on the background. be ready to hand out tips though, as it definitely expected.

Excellent tour of Sakara, Sphinx and the Pyramids.

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.
