I had heard about Viator on Twitter and this was the first opportunity to book a tour. I only had 2 days in Cairo and was travelling by myself, so I really wanted an insightful tour where I would not only see the sights, but also learn about them as well. I wasn't disappointed! The tour was perfect and Ahmed was a brilliant guide. I was lucky enough to have him as my guide for both tours I booked and I got an amazing appreciation of what I was experiencing. This tour was excellent - Pyramids and Sphinx with Ahmed sharing as much knowledge as he could. I would highly recommend this tour - well organised and well guided.
Transport arrived promptly and the minibus was comfortable and air-conditione. The driver was excellent and the tour guide was very interesting and informative. We really enjoyed the trip to the Pyramids and Sphinx and then enjoyed an excellent but in-expensive lunch with out guide (Ams) - Thank you for a fantastic day !! I will definitely book again for another excursion
Our guide was really nice, he made it entertaining and enjoyable. The tour was perfect, the fact that our guide would give us some background knowledge and then give us extra time to explore on our own was perfect, exactly what we wanted.
The highlight of my holiday. Our Guide Fouad, was excellent. We went inside the great Pyramid but be warned- it is a climb up and very hard work. My legs were like jelly by the time we came out. Well worth it though. We had camel ride round pyramids- our guide took us to a trustworthy camel owner Highly recommended
this tour is a must if visiting the pyramids, having a guide gets rid of most of the touts, highly recommended
We had a great time. I went with my husband, 9 and 11 year old and my 2 month old. We travelled in a private van so I could take breaks to feed the baby. We had a fantastic time! The Guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.
The booking went as planned. We were very happy with our tour guide, Irene and tour leader Mohummod.Both greeted us at the hotel promptly and with big smiles on their faces. Irene was very knowledgeable about the history of Cairo and the Pyramids. She gave us insights into different aspects of local life, cultures and more importantly what to stay away from as tourists. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Great! Great! Great! Aladdin was fantastic. He had all the right connections to make it a very enjoyable tour. He allowed us to tour at our pace. We were never rushed.
My tour was the same day as the protests in Cairo, so my nerves were high. My tour guide eased my worries and was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions. My tour was definitely the highlight of my trip. If you are brave enough to travel to Egypt during political unrest I would recommend this tour. A couple hours of interesting facts and once-in-a-life photos!
Excellent tour guide!
It was amazing. Fayod our guide was great. Our driver was amazing in the crazy Cairo streets. The pyramids are bigger in person. Go into the main pyramid but if you are 6 foot 3 inches like me, the opening to go in is quite claustrophobic. Its a 100f oot 45 degree incline in a 4 foot by 4 foot hole, but it is amazing. Again if your going to book this tour request Fayod as he is the best, calm, relaxed, funny and very informative.
Fantastic guide, pleasant and knowledgable. He ensured a great day for the whole family.
I just wanted to say the tour guide we had was phenomenal. We will use every chance we get to use Viator again. Thank you.
There are not enough words to describe how GREAT my tour was! Loved every second of it. Could not have asked for more, and truly expected so much less! Great job!
First this is an amazing tour. I highly recomend coming here in winter tho as it was warm and summer would probably be insane for us hehe. Plus more busy.
So first. The main pyramid is 100 Pounds to enter. The small pyramid is 30 pounds to enter. You can use your tripod upon entering the pyramid places but you must pay a small fee. Also you bring extra money along to ride on camals or horses and get your pic taken with them. The wive's pyramids are free to enter.
Afterwords you go to a factory where you find papyrus paintings which are awesome. He'll charge you 120 pounds for the inital paining then a bit more to write your name and a bit more for other stuff. I would recomend not doing that. Just walk around other places and you can find the same things for MUCH cheaper. After buying those I found another one selling em for 20 pounds!
If you dont come here and your in cairo....well your just insane! :)
