Excellent experience, Salib arrived right on time. As I was alone we did not have a driver. Very detailed visit of Saqqara and Memphis then of the 2 Pyramids of Dashur which I was able to visit after his explanations. Stop at a papyrus factory, I didn't want to buy anything and we were able to leave quickly. In my opinion a good value for money, having made the rest of the trip only the explanations of a guide were welcome

We were picked up very punctually. Our guide Salib (?) immediately started providing us with interesting details about Cairo on the way. The car was comfortable so the commutes were surprisingly pleasant. We learned extensive details about pyramid building, everyday life in Egypt and the religious background. All of our questions were answered in a friendly manner - since we were traveling as a family, there were of course many of them! The lunch we booked was also wonderful (and really plentiful!), and the ride on the quads was exciting. All in all a wonderful day - many thanks to Salib!
