What people are saying about Sakkara

We had a great experience with the friendly and knowledgeable guide Amr. He planned our activity really well based on the weather conditions on that day. Also he gave us sufficient time to go see everything and spend quality time at each place. He even made us pose for the photos and took lot of quality photos of our group. He was really kind and gave us tips every time we were about to enter an unknown place. He explained the history about the pyramids really well and he could answer all the questions that we asked. Really recommend this activity to everyone and special thanks to the well deserved guide "AMR" who made our day very memorable.

It was amazing, the pyramides are spectacular, majestic, monumental; our guides Kholoud and Mohamed complemented our experience, they both did their best to make us feel comfortable and enjoy our days in Egypt they adapted the tour to our interests and take care of us all the time. They were always so kind-hearted with us so we strongly recommended them for any Spanish speaker guest you might have in future.

Our guide Sayed was really good and he was so patient with our 5 years old child. We enjoyed the tour, it was whole day with very beautiful memories and places. It was a great day. Our driver was also very kind person. The only issue was camel ride. I bought 1 hour camel ride but it was only 20-30 minutes in total. If you are planning to buy camel ride, 30 min would be enough.

It was an excellent experience. We thought it was going to be a group tour, but it ended up being a private one which was even better. Our guide was Sayed - he was very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. The driver (I didn't catch her name) was also excellent, even in the chaos of the Cairo and Giza streets. Highly recommended!

Ahmed Zaki was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable. Mohamed Talat was a very good driver.
