Great tour. Our guide Ahmed was very knowledgeable and helped put everything in context as we visited the wonders of ancient Egypt. Car was air conditioned and a great relief from the hot sun. OceanAir was very easy to communicate with, as Rania reached out very soon after booking to make sure the trip would go well.

O tour foi incrível graças ao excelente trabalho do Guia Mohsen e do Motorista Mohamed. Eles foram sensacionais, super prestativos e muito gentis durante todo o tour. Mohsen explicou detalhes de tudo com muita atenção para saber se estávamos realmente entendo. Eles conseguiram nos deixar muito à vontade, confortáveis e seguro por todo o tour. Muito obrigado!

I strongly recommend this activity which encompasses most of the outdoor archeological sites of the Cairo area. I have seen so many things in one day ! Giza pyramids & Sphinx, Saqqara pyramid and mastabas, Memphis museum with the colossal statue of Ramses II. But that's not all ! An insight of the great Pyramid and a camel ride which I had not booked in the first place. Luckily the timing is very flexible and allows for some extra activities on Giza. So for those who just pass by one or two days in Cairo it's a must ! Big thanks to my guide Ahmed and the driver Mohamed for their kindness and readiness to help in any situation !
