The tour of Saqqara and Giza was beautiful. Our driver Mohamed showed up on time and was also very helpful with letting us take pictures on the way to Saqqara. Amr our guide took us through the history of the mastabas and pyramids with a lot of passion and knowledge and he was also very willing to take pictures of me and my girlfriend. He was really kind as well as very knowledgeable and good at explaining to us in fluent Italian everything we admired. A thousand thanks!

The tour was good. Mohammed our guide was quite knowledgeable and share details about many historical facts. He also helped us spot best points to take pictures. The drive was pleasant and safe. 5 star for our driver, guide and the tour. In hindsight we feel we could have skipped Memphis. The full day tour is tiring if we are traveling with young kids.
