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.

Coming to Giza, Egypt and visited the Pyramids was a dream that came true. Maged, my tour guide, made it a very special and unique experience. He was very knowledgeable about the history, culture and traditions, and most importantly he and his crew: Ahmad the photograher and Ahmad the driver, contributed to made this experience fun, memorable, and "breathtaking". I highly recommend you to choose this activity, and make your dream come true.
