Start your tour at 8am from your hotel as you will be picked up by your private qualified Egyptologist in your private, modern a/c van equipped with WiFi access and head for Saqqara to visit the Step Pyramid of King Zoser and its complex. The Step Pyramid was built for King Zoser, the founder of the Third Dynasty (about 2700 B.C.) by Imhotep, the first architect in history and it is the oldest building of stone in history. Afterwards you will visit the beautiful tomb of Kagemni (about 200 B.C.) and watch the magnificent Pyramid Texts inside the pyramid of Teti. Move on to the site of Memphis, the first capital of ancient Egypt (about 3200 B.C) to see some of its ruins and visit its museum where you will see the colossal statue of king Ramses II and the huge alabaster sphinx. Next stop will be Dahshur to visit the Bent Pyramid (the first attempt to build a true pyramid) and the Red Pyramid (the first true pyramid in history) which you will enter. Both pyramids were built by King Snefru, the founder of the fourth dynasty and the father of King Cheops (about 2600 B.C.). Later you will have lunch at a top quality restaurant overlooking the Sphinx and the pyramids. Lastly you will move to Giza plateau to see the Great Pyramid of King Cheops (about 2500 B.C.), the pyramid of Chephren, the pyramid of Mycerinus, then you will move up the plateau to the panorama for taking great pictures.

It was a great day ! Our tour guide Mimo was very knowledgeable of the history
We got what we expected and more
I highly recommend Mimo as a guide he was very polite and respectful , big thumbs up 👍
We travelled with our 15 and 7 years old son and daughter. We wanted to avoid the confusion and use the best way our 2 days in Cairo and surroundings. Of course we wanted to go the Giza Pyramids but also wanted to explore Memphis, Dahchur and Sakkara and the kids were dying to ride a camel. Among the great offer of tours, we chose this one and it proved to be a good decision. Our guide Jimmy was very pontual, explain us the most important facts in Egipt history related to the places we visited, gave us tips about dealing and barging with locals, was very attencious to all of us, took us lunch to a very nice tradicional restaurant and gave us fresh water the whole trip (witch is a very important detail when you're facing egipt's high temperatures). The driver was also very professional and kept the van always fresh when we returned from the places we were visiting. Finally, our guide Jimmy went beyond his function as a tourist guide to a one day tour and was of great help in the process of changing hotel, since our first choice did'n't meet our expectations.
We recommend this tour!
I had a great time doing the tour. Mustapha was the tour guide, he texted me the day before and confirmed the appointment. He arrived right on the clock, he was knowledgeable and sincere. He explained each site with details with relevant historic perspectives. The included lunch was fantastic.
What a fabulous day! My tour guide Jimmy was knowledgeable and still enthusiastic about the Egyptian history. Actually going inside and to the very top of a pyramid definitely a highlight. My only thing was the amount of people doing kitschy tourist photos (kissing the Sphinx etc) but to each their own! We had a fantastic stop off at an essence manufacturer which I loved. Definitely recommend!
The tour guide was hard working, knowledgeable and caring person. If you have 1or 2 days in Cairo definitely I suggest you take full day tour to capture the main pyramids of Cairo. One thing I disliked was the camel ride and picture, of course we need good picture with pyramids and camel if not why we try to ride the camel so please clear the goals with people about that from beginning and make sure he knows how to take pictures.

I had a great day visiting Giza, Sakkara and Memphis. My tour guide Ashraf Ibrahim (Mr. LEGeND) was brilliant, very knowledgeable and patient in explaining the significance of the places we visited. More importantly he was very passionate at what he was doing. I had an enjoyable trip.
I very much enjoyed the private tour and my tour guide Waleed did an excellent job. I was impressed by his knowledge of Egyptian culture and history. The tour was highly informative and Waleed found the right dosage to convey the essential story without information overload. It was an enjoyable experience and I highly recommend Waleed as a competent and knowledgeable tour guide.
They are really good and hospitable given that it was our first time in Egypt.
One thing I enjoy about this tour is that they bring us to Dahshur for the bent pyramid which not a lot of tour agency will bring (that bent pyramid is my fave! and we find the entire pyramid to ourselves!) how lucky!
Great day all round. Well structured and everything timely. Nice air conditioned van with a brilliant driver and tour guide. Our guide, Noor, knew absolutely everything, answered all the questions we asked and was very friendly throughout. Lunch was great too. Can not recommend this tour enough!
