Sayed Hamdy, my tour guide, and Mohammed, my driver, were both fantastic. Sayed was extremely knowledgeable about every site we went to, and you could tell he was passionate about history. He was also an excellent photographer that took numerous photos of my husband and me at each site. Mohammed was an excellent driver and safely got us to each place. Both Sayed and Mohammed were excellent conversationalists, which made for great discussions throughout the entire day. They also took us to a few local places to shop before lunch, where we could learn more about products particular to Egypt. I would absolutely recommend this tour as it was a wonderful experience and I will be booking another trip with them in the future. Since I recently moved to Cairo, they were even happy to give advice on restaurants near my home and the best foods to try. They made us feel extremely welcome, and we will absolutely be using their services again!
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.
Omar, our guide, was excellent. We were battling against the elements with rain and howling gales whilst we were at the Pyramids where normally blue sky and sunshine is the norm but Cairo had the worst weather for 24 yrs! Despite all this we visited the Pyramids, Memphis and Karnak, where Omar gave an expert explanation of all 3 sights.
It was really spectacular, and thank you for a wonderful tour Guide Osama, he made my trip very very enjoyable... the ride, the chats, snacks and the fooooooddd OMG! I loved every bit of my tour. I recommend to anyone who want to experience this
