The tour is perfect for 1st time travelers to Egypt. You learn about the history plus seeing all the pyramids live is a dream come true! This is a whole day tour so prepare to be awes by the beauty of Egypt. You will also get great guides and worth the money and time! If you are claustrophobic, you can’t enter the Great Pyramid and Saqqara. But anyway the view is outside with it as background. When buying souvenirs outside, don’t fall for their 1st price, always cut it to 60/70% off and make your haggle, it works 95% of the time ;) The tour guide and driver also lets you see other interesting placed like an Oil Shop, Carpet School, Jewelry and Papyrus Shop and they are all great (again with amazing bargain after discounts and haggling!) The lunch was also wonderful and filling! Get your guide is highly recommended! Thanks!

My guide was Omar. He is really sympathique guy. He is relax and does not push to go shop for buying expensive perfume or papyrus. I recommend him because he is flexible, honest and interesting guy. My wife is speaking English only and we booked for French. He made effort to explain in the both languages. Thanks Omar. I appreciate your honesty 😀

Amazing tour with an amazing duo. Amal and Mahmood were so welcoming! Amal is such a sweet, knowledgeable person - she’s not just a tour guide but was also our own personal photographer! Mahmood our driver is so kind and he went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. He gave us so many suggestions for places to visit and even helped us find a shawarma spot at the end🌯 thank you both so much for a memorable day!
