We had enough time at the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Our guide wanted to take a lot of "tourist photos" of us. He even got us falafel on the way back to show us. On the way back, however, we stopped at a papyrus museum and we should buy something.

The guide, Mr. Mohamed, was very punctual and kind. He explained to me both the history and many curiosities about the pyramids in perfect Spanish. The man who was driving, exactly the same, very kind and patient. Apart from this, the company in charge of the tour reacts very quickly and in a very professional way to any eventuality. I had to change the day tour at the last minute, due to a mishap with the flight and they did it quickly and at no additional cost. I would definitely recommend them. They are a professional and reliable option to spend a fantastic day at the pyramids

Organization and pickup worked very well. The driver and guide were also nice and spoke the chosen language. We were able to learn some interesting facts about the pyramids that we didn't know and didn't expect. However, the pyramid complex itself is crowded with vendors harassing you, so time for photos is severely limited. Also, personally I wouldn't go in June anymore as the weather is way too hot. The only thing that we found very disturbing was the "obligatory visit" in a kind of "perfumery", where you stood there quite stupidly alone without a group. The guide wanted to do the same with a "papyrus factory", but we urged him to skip that.
