Both driver and tour guide were excellent and very professional. We were very impressed by the punctuality and efficiency.
Our guide was excellent, with great knowledge, and set the tour to suit our needs.
Experience of a lifetime. If you do nothing else in Cairo make sure you see the Great Pyramids and Sphinx.
All of the staff was extremely professional and helpful. I will definitely recommend this service to others in the future.
Great experience marred by hawkers. Do not look any locals at the Pyramids let alone give them your camera. Do not accept any gifts. Do not smile at them or think they are being helpful when they point something out. Do not go on a Camel ride without having you guide negotiate the price and payment before you get on. The guides have their guys just stick with them. Its sound callous but you will be prayed upon and it will end in tears, loss of your money and considerable anxiety. Otherwise enjoy the Pyramids!!
Great tour! Tour guide, Ossama, had great information to share. No trouble from vendors and much easier than going independently. Really not much more expensive either. If you go on your own, you will have to deal with transport, people who will literally jump into your taxi to try and be your tour guide, rip offs and misleading information both in and outside the pyramid complex, aggressive vendors and getting around to different viewpoints. Take a half day tour instead. Only regret is I would have liked to stay longer. Temperature did top out at 113 F that day which is unusual, even in summer.
It was good. The guide (Aladin) choose best places for us, so the view was fantastic, and the explanation too.
This tour provided safe and convenient transportation to and from the Pyramids and Sphinx. The guide gave us pointers on dealing with the sellers hawking trinkets and camel rides. The narrative was okay, but not more than what could be found in the guidebooks. I recommend this tour if you are hesitant about making the journey on your own.
Excellent photographer and very tolerent and knowledgable guide. Would recommend this service. Very efficient and helpful as well.
A must-do trip when in Cairo, amazing !! Pick up and drop off prompt and as its a private tour, no visiting other hotels to pick up others. The guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The tour can be as adapted to your personal preference, we were pushed for time so our guide accommodated our needs by skipping the trip to the "craft" shop. Although we did not have a camel ride, the guide did seems to be able to negotiate a good price with the locals for this.
The pyramids and Sphinx were as amazing as I had hoped they would be and should not be missed !!
The driver and guide were good. The pyramids and Sphinx are impressive, but not worth more than a couple of hours' visit. The tour includes an optional visit to an essence merchant nearby. We had mixed feelings about these optional tours. The crafts are interesting, and you don't have to buy anything, but saying "no" all the time in Egypt gets tiring.
When my wife and I visited the Pyramids and Sphinx it was just after the Revolution and the site was fairly empty of tourists, which was tough on the locals but advantageous for us. As expected, what you see is quite awesome when you realise when they were built and the tools they had. We didn't venture inside the pyramids, too claustrophobic and too old for the climb!, but had a really good look around the site.
Our guide was excellent and everything went very smoothly.
If you visit Cairo it's a must to take in this tour and I would recommend it to anyone. Not too much hassle from local vendors selling their wares though they are always around.
Our tour was well worth the money! Our guide was fantastic, personable, and informative. Once the events in Egypt calm and tourism starts again I highly recommend this company.
The guide had recovered from his flu, so was more chatty. The pyramids were great and the driver good, so a nice trip.
Well done. Guide was very good. Transport was on time. Everything done efficiently.

Very good transportation arrangement. Worth the visit. But on the point of criticism, my guide discouraged us to buy souvenirs at the Pyramid on the pretence that he would take us someewhere else where the quality of goods is superior and cheaper. We fell for it and both my wife and I were very dissapointed.
Pyramids are amazing, our tour guide was very kind and knowledgable, but there was miscommunication with the guys who were coming to pick us up and we ended up having to wait two hours at our hotel because they were running late.
The Pyramids and the Sphinx are extremely impressive to see with your own eyes, photographs do not do justice. We only had a day in Cairo - a must see even on a short stop over!
The side seeing was brilliant and the guide was ok too but then we got took to some tourist shops and restaurents. We where told that these have the best prices but that is wrong. Over priced!!! Go into a shop down town and you get it for half price.
It was quick, but we needed it to be that way, our guide was great
The guide was great and the tour was lovely. However, I knew that it was important to confirm the tour 24 hours in advance. The voucher had this requirement and the phone number. I have placed several phone calls a day before my tour but no one was answering. It was frustrating. They eventually dropped the instructions to my hotel and I got them upon arrival. But not sure why no one was answering the phone within business hours.
The Egyptologist guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant - answered all our questions and we enjoyed her company. Lucky for us the Giza Plateau was really quiet and we could explore the pyramids and Sphinx without any crowds. Be sure though that the pick up time is adhered to as agreed the previous day. We ended waiting on the sidewalk outside our hotel as the tour company changed the pick up time without ensuring that we were adequately informed.
