Giza Pyramids and Sphinx: Half-Day Private Tour
- Pickup available
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 4 hours
This was one of the best guided tours I’ve ever been on, in large part because we had an excellent tour guide named Nesma. We enjoyed the tour so much that we booked another one for the next day at Memphis, Saqqara, and Dashur with the same tour guide. We were picked up at our hotel by a car with a dedicated driver, in addition to the tour guide (no other visitors—just my group of 2). We then went straight to the Giza pyramids (including Sphinx) to beat the crowds/heat. Our tour guide took amazing photos and made recommendations about how to best use our time. We were then taken to a papyrus art house for a presentation and opportunity to buy the art. Next we went to lunch at a local restaurant, which was very good—chicken and lamb. The food was included, and although the drinks were not included, they were very cheap. Next, we went to the Egyptian Museum where our tour guide showed us all the most important artifacts and knew a lot of history. Then went to the bazaar.
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!
I took a full day trip form Emo tours. My guide, Ola, was very professional and knowledgeable in her field. She explained and told a lot about the egyptian history. We also talked a lot about different cultures and Egypt in general. She is very passionate about her work, I highly recommend her as a tour guide. My driver Mahmoud did a great job taking us from places to places in the hectic traffic of Cairo. I felt safe during the whole your.
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 !
We had an amazing time at the Giza-Saqqara-Memfis tour. Our guide was Eslam Hanfi and the driver Mustafah Koty. If you want to have a great experience please contact these guys. They are more like friends than a tour guide and know a lot about Egyptian history. I highly recommend this company. Very happy we chose them!
