I highly recommend this tour! Ask for Shawky for your tour guide and you won't be disappointed. He was knowledgeable, friendly and gave us plenty of time to sightsee and take pictures. The camel ride is something you don't want to miss. We also had a traditional Egyptian dish for lunch which was superb. It was an amazing experience.

This was our first trip to Egypt and our tour guide Waleed was awesome! He gave us a thorough tour of the compound and was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. He also helped us negotiate with the local vendors. He took us to a fabulous local restaurant for lunch where the falafel sandwich was absolutely delicious! If booking with this company ask for Waleed Elak Bawy, you won't be disappointed.

t’s one of the best tour I’ve ever joined! Fatma was my tour guide and she’s fabulous! With Fatma, you will have not only a guide, but also a history teacher, an architect, a photographer and even a body guard to keep you away from tourist scams! I’m glad that I joined this tour during my layover!

Highly recommended! One of our best tours during our visit to Egypt. Yasser was phenomenal as he took us to authentic shops that showed us examples of how different oils were made and the use of the papyrus plant prior to us purchasing these products! He fully explained Egyptian history during our visit to the pyramids and sphinx. He was very pleasant and patient with us! Lunch was at an excellent restaurant, you all will have no regrets!!

My family and I did this tour in July. Our tour guide, Mady, was awesome. We had 3 children 7, 5, and 3 and he did a great job helping us keep them busy! He helped us customize the tour to maximize our experience yet keep the kids happy! The tour was a great balance between fun site seeing and learning the awesome history of Ancient Egypt. We added the solar boat museum and entrance into the great pyramid and it was worth it. I highly recommend this half day tour, especially for those with small children!

Our tour was off to a slightly rocky start as we were staying in an AirBnB and not a hotel, and it was hard to find us. Once we were finally united, we had a wonderful tour. Our guide, Fatma, was extraordinary. She was extremely knowledgeable, but presented information as a compelling narrative and made it accessible to me and my family. My mom, brother and I all had a wonderful time with Fatma, who made us feel secure and comfortable, and facilitated everything over the course of our experience. Fatma knows the area very well all of the best places to take photos she took so many amazing pictures of us and never rushed us through, and many people hailed her as she walked through. She gave us some great advice over the course of our tour but never pressured us, allowing us to take things at our own pace and choose what we did and did not want to do. We took photos with the great pyramid, then atop the panoramic area, during our camel ride, and finally with the Sphinx. We also entered the small pyramid. Our van driver, whose name I did not catch, also did a great job ferrying us around the Pyramid complex in air-conditioned comfort. Fatma also secured for us a local lunch that was vegetarian as per our request, and delicious. I highly recommend Fatma as a guide!
