I spent a great day on a completely private tour with my guide Salib! Travelling by myself I felt very comfortable and I really enjoyed all the detailled and thoughtful information Salib provided me with. Thank you again for making me feel so welcome! :)

As a solo female traveller I would certainly recommend getting this tour to explore Memphis, Saqqara & Dahshur: I had an amazing time! Pick-up and drop-off were easy, my guide and driver were very nice people, and I learned a whole lot about all of the places we came across on the road, and of course also about the places we visited. My guide really knew everything I wanted to know! And she was really helpful as she told me which pyramids I could go inside and whom I should tip for that. There was also the possibility to have some free time at places (I think to get souvenirs or photos), but I didn't use that, as it was far more interesting to hear about the places from her. Of course there were a lot of vendors at the places, but they didn't bother me as much as when I visited on my own, because I had a guide with me. Last but not least, driving an ATV in the desert surrounding the Giza pyramids was totally awesome! You get used to it pretty quickly and then it's just terrific!

Our guide Salib was extremely knowledgeable and was passionate about the history of the sites we visted and the also about Egypt's culture today as we drove between sites. The driver did a great job and got us around safely all day. The ATV ride at the end is a cherry on top, especially since you get some views of the pyramids that you can't get on the normal walking tour. Highly recommended
