A great day visiting key antiquities around Cairo. Prompt pick up at the hotel. Plenty of time, not rushed throughout the day.

This tour would have been wonderful based on the sites seen alone. it was made exponentially better by our wonderful tour guide and driver, Sayid navigated the Cairo traffic with ease. Tonsi was so engaging, knowledgeable and caring. The Giza pyramids are truly a beautiful sight to behold and Tonsi made sure we got great photos to remember our visit. He went above and beyond, gifting us with knowledge about not only the Pyramids and why they exist but how to navigate Egyptian culture. He even saved us some wasted pounds by telling us not to pay for wasteful add-ons. My brother really enjoyed the visit to the Step Pyramids in Sakkara, he actually got to go inside and see a tomb. I thought the whole trip was amazing but really enjoyed my time in the open air museum of Memphis. The lunch provide was actually pretty good and I enjoyed the added bonus of enjoying the meal with our guide and driver. Tonsi made sure we never felt rush and that we could do as little or as much as we wanted. My brother and I really enjoyed our added trip to the Papyrus institute, the guide was from Aswan and she was so amazing, beautiful and funny. She gave us plenty of time to make purchases unencumbered.

This tour was the highlight of my trip. Our guide Mahmoud was so knowledgeable and very friendly. Our driver Honey expertly navigated the crazy Cairo traffic and always got out to open the door as soon as he sat us walking toward the car. These two provided do much knowledge about the ruins but also about Cairo as a whole. It felt like we were with two friends who just happened to know everything about the Pyramids and all of Cairo history. I would recommend this tour hands down and if you are lucky to get Mahmoud and Honey you are sure to have a wonderful time!

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. My tour guide was Bossi. she was incredible! she has so many knowlegde of the history and the sightings and is a super amazing woman! I would book this tour again and would definately book a tour with her as my guide again. I highly recommend this tour as the sightings are amazing. Saqqara, Memphis and Giza are so different and all have their own beauty, I loved it!

We had a Marvelous time on this full day tour!! Our tour guide was Osama and he went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time touring the Pyramids, Memphis and Sakkara. Osama arrived early at our hotel ready to pick us up, It was an air conditioned van which was great since the weather got up to 110 degrees F. They brought us to a couple of different shops in between Pyramids to give us the option to buy souvenirs, which was great because it allowed us to avoid being harassed by all the panhandlers on the street. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone.

I enjoyed my full day tour, my guide was excellent and very knowledgeable of all the sites he took me too. My only regret is that I did not get to see the underground crypt at Sakkara where supposedly the bulls were buried. I don't know if we ran out of time or what but I didn't realize they were at Sakkara until I got home. Darn now I have to go back. But all joking aside I will highly recommend this day trip.

I had an excellent time in Egypt, this being the highlight of my trip. I appreciate there are good guides out there, but no one can be better than Olfat, FULL STOP. She is full of life, passionate about her job and has thorough knowledge about the history of Egypt.
BTW she takes amazing photos, I had no idea my simple phone could take such amazing photos.

Also, I had to mention this, our driver Abdullah Gomma was a great driver, I have been behind the wheel for donkey's years so I know a good driver straight away. In Egypt driving is a difficult task, with every other taxi driver swearing and cursing at other drivers, applying harsh breaking/horn all the time, however with Abdullah it was a smooth journey. Having a good driver and a good guide are very important for a trip, and by God's grace I had both.

Egypt is a great country, with warm people and lot to see. The food is great too and it is safe. Please visit Egypt before you kick th e bucket.

Highlight of the trip. Had a full day of activities, the tour guide was extremely helpful in understanding our needs and ensuring 1 we were safe, 2 We were informed of each facility before reaching it. 3 We were afforded an appropriate time to enjoy the sites, take pictures, etc.
His knowledge of each area was comforting and his willingness to discuss any issues relating to Egypt or Cairo was also helpful.

It is a day with great experience with a close look at these symbolic man-made structures and sculptures. The weather is great. It is a small group with only three tourists. The guide is a nice guy and is keen to help take a few great photos for the Great Pyramid at the specific spots introduced by him the photos are great!. It would be good if the guide could slow down a bit without rushing so we can enjoy the moments a bit longer.
