Exceptional service. The tour was great and our guide was a wonderfully knowledgeable Egyptologist. She answered all our questions and was delightful with the kids. From meeting us at the gate to delivering us to the train it was a terrific experience. Thank you Viator!!!!
We had a great guide, with a lot of good information. Pick up and drop off at the hotel, very good service.
The guide we had was passionate and well informed about all aspects of the tour. The Papyrus and Perfume showrooms were average, but the drive between these gave us a view of Cairo we would not have normally seen.
Great experience! Our Egyptian Guide was a very sympathetic lady who explained all about the Pyramids, and not only. Overall, a memorable tour!
Our guide was great, she helped us haggle for a camel ride, told us what we should and should not do and helped us do some shopping. She was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor.
The Egyptologist was fantastic he knew so much about ancient Egyptian culture and he answered all of our questions. He never rushed us and gave us plenty of time to explore on our own. He took the best pictures of us in front of the Pyramids. He also made sure we were not taken advantage of during our camel rides which he also helped arrange. A private tour and driver is the only way visit these amazing sites.It was truly an experience of a lifetime.
Every aspect of the tour was absolutely first class. Our contact for the week, was very helpful and friendly and arrived on time. Our minibus was clean, air conditioned and very well driven. Our tour guide, unfortunately I have forgotten her name, was really nice and treated us more like friends then tourists. She told the history of Egypt in a most interesting way and knew her stuff. We felt very good about everything. The pyramids and the sphinx were even better than we had expected. Splendid.
The guide was absolutely amazing - her historical knowledge was great and she answered all of our questions. She was such a lovely person that nothing was too much hassle for her. She helped us negotiate good prices for camel rides and gifts. We had a fantastic day which we will remember for a very long time.
The crew were AWESOME. A guide is needed to reach the pyramids, no taxis allowed. Our tour guide did great. Wish I could have had a bit more information from the tour guide, but one can not have it all. Also should use this company for transfer 'to' and 'from' airport, because inbound outbound flights are VERY confusing and taxis do not always know your hotel even though they say they do.

The pick up on this trip was on time and the guide was very knowledgeable. We wondered before the trip how easy it is to get inside the pyramids it was surprisingly easy. There are plentiful tickets on sale for the second pyramid 25 Egyptian pounds, however it was more difficult to get tickets to the Great Pyramid as only 150 tickets are sold in the morning and 150 tickets for 1pm more expensive. We were told that advanced tickets were not available. These two pyramids are very similar in size. The photo opportunities are amazing, you can get close to the pyramids and the Sphinx. There are a number of locals that will try and get money for items or for taking photos however we did not find that a problem. We found it very hot inside the pyramid. It is made worse by having to crouch down and walk in a four, five foot high passage ways down and then up. We were only in the second pyramid for around 10 minutes and needed to drink lots of water after, take plenty of water with you. The only downside for us was the guide seemed to rush things along a bit and we needed to make efforts to slow things down and make a point of walking off on our own so we would have more time for photos etc. Also they do seem to try to tag on additional parts to the trip that involve buying items from factories, don't feel compelled to do these, just politely decline if they do not suit. Overall this is an awesome trip, a must do.
This trip left me feeling in awe of the wonderous work put into the pyramids and also how the Kings son must have been a very intelligent man to have arranged the second pyramid in such a way that he looks more impressive than his father. An excellent trip well worth doing and would recommend this for anyone interested in ancient history.
