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.

We booked this the night before from and airport hotel, to basically act as a taxi ride to the Pyramids. But we got so mush more than that! We had a vVery knowledgeable guide who went into a ton of details and was happy to elaborate even further when asked. Transport was comfortable and fast, driving in Cairo is and experience in itself!

So happy about this experience, for us, it really was a dream come true to visit the Pyramids. Our tour guide from Emo Tours Sayed Mahmoud was very patient with us, and he knew so much about the history of the Pyramids, which added to the experience. He also knew the best spots to take the coolest pictures. Going inside the great pyramid was definitely the experience of a lifetime and the additional Quad biking tour with a view of the Pyramids was also very worth it. Overall, we would definitely recommend you doing the pyramids with a guide and we were very happy with the service.
