Our guide Salib was very knowledgable and gave clear and interesting explanations. The ATV drive around the pyramids at the end was awesome. (in the road to the site, your drive alongside horses and camels, which is animal unfriendly) Lunch was not included, and we were guided to a certainly good, but also a bit tourist-trappy restaurant.

It's been really ok. I appreciated the guide Guda was really good in explain even what i asked and he easily understood that i wouldn't spend time on shopping and things like that. I usually book english guided tour but for the pyramids i prefered to choose italian and Guda spoke like an italian person. Thank you and good luck

it was a really unique experience. Our guide Ahmed was really kind and had the needed knowlenge to fully cover a rich history like egyptian. Camel ride through the pyramids were the highlight of the trip. A unique day we ll never forget

Very well planned and organised. My guide Mohammad was a pleasure to spend the day with! A lovely chap and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this!

Salib was a great guy and seemed genuinely interested in giving a good tour.
