Sayed Hamdy, my tour guide, and Mohammed, my driver, were both fantastic. Sayed was extremely knowledgeable about every site we went to, and you could tell he was passionate about history. He was also an excellent photographer that took numerous photos of my husband and me at each site. Mohammed was an excellent driver and safely got us to each place. Both Sayed and Mohammed were excellent conversationalists, which made for great discussions throughout the entire day. They also took us to a few local places to shop before lunch, where we could learn more about products particular to Egypt. I would absolutely recommend this tour as it was a wonderful experience and I will be booking another trip with them in the future. Since I recently moved to Cairo, they were even happy to give advice on restaurants near my home and the best foods to try. They made us feel extremely welcome, and we will absolutely be using their services again!
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.
Perfect tour! Tour guide Mr. Maged was incredible, very passionate and informative. He told us so many important information that we couldn't find it anywhere. He was very attentive to details. Very proffesional and helpful! The driver Mr. Mohammed was fluent in English, very kind & helpful aswell. Perfect communication with the all the staff members via What's Up. Next day we get a tour to Cairo museum which was wonderful aswell. Definetely recommend this company to everyone! Hope to come back again one day and see you guys! Greeting from Lithuania!
Ahmed was the perfect host during our dinner on the Nile cruise ! He picked us up early because we asked if we could possibly stop somewhere before dinner. He was able to take us to that place then still made it on time for the dinner. He was so kind and gracious. He waited with us while we ate our dinner, helped us take pictures and just made sure we had an overall good time. This was the best experience ever !
Ahmed was a great guide, very experienced and sat down to explain history to us at the pyramids. He dealt with people trying to sell us stuff as well as entrance fees. Also took lots of photos without us! Tell your guide ahead of time if you're not interested in papyrus shop since we were kind of dropped off there and the shop was very aggressive about selling. Bought something just to leave.
