Exceptional, Fantastic and unforgettable . The Pyramids were unbelievable, an historical monument, the Camel Ride was awesome and the Egyptian Museum was breath taken. My tour guide Mahmoud, was excellent, patient and professional..He was understanding to my needs , he even though me how to say " thanks " and " let's go" in Aribic. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who's planning a trip to Egypt.

Great day spent with Shamaa the tour guide who is very friendly and highly knowledgeable on egyptology. The tour was professional and as advertised with a meal at a nice restaurant to finish the day
All in all good.
Florian_F, Mar 2023
I really enjoyed the tour. The Tour Guide was very good and the Driver was a funny guy. Why no 5 Stars? The camel ride is something i can‘t support. Camels are slapped and bad treated. This is really sad, thats why i canceled the camel tour. The rest was very good. Thank you!

Seeing the pyramids, riding the camels also the tour of the museum....our tour guide was very knowledgeable of all that he showed us. Met allot of new people from the places we purchased our souvenirs.
Great day in Giza
David_G, Mar 2023
We spent a great day with Abdul, had a great time at the Pyramids, Sphinx, Museum and market. Knowledge of the guide is basic, it was OK for us so we could focus more on the experience it self. The extra stops for the oils and papyrus sale is a waste of time.
Cairo in a Day (or two)
Karen_E, Mar 2023
This is a great trip. I was traveling with two friends (of 50 years so we’re not spring chickens but we do like adventure!). I was debating this tour or the one that included the Saqqara pyramid. I opted for this one, knowing one friend would like to see the Bazaar. While it was cool seeing the enormous size of a bazaar dating back to the 9th century, I’d skip this if I was choosing again. Luckily our guide, Rania, recognized that we enjoyed seeing it but didn’t want to linger. The rest was fantastic! Rania was very, very knowledgeable about Egyptian history and very personable. The pyramids are amazing and the Egyptian Museum enormous. She was able to pick out the pieces most note-worthy and explain in detail. Usually, I just like to spend a day in a museum and wander but, given the short time we had, I loved her style. I was leery of the camel ride but it was really fun! And we liked Rania so much, we asked her if she could arrange to be our guide for the next day. We came to Cairo not knowing how overwhelming it is (size, traffic, etc). We immediately recognized our mistake and told Rania what we would like to visit, and when we would like to start and end the tour. By the end of the day, she was able to confirm everything. Great trip, amazing guide!
Memorable experience in Egypt.
Russ_M, Mar 2023
Michael is an excellent tour guide, tremendous knowledge of Egypt’s history & periods. Spending a day touring with Michael is like spending a day with an old friend, beautiful experience.
Amazing!
Penny_B, Mar 2023
Karam, our Guide, was truly excellent. He was friendly, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history. Nothing was too much trouble and he made our experience come alive. The roof top restaurant where we stopped for lunch had great views of the pyramids and the extensive meal was delicious. Thoroughly recommend Pyramids Land Private Tours.
Great guide and driver
Nathan_B, Mar 2023
Had a wonderful tour of the pyramids and the museum. The guide gave us great information and was very knowledgeable. She also gave important tips to deal with (avoid) high pressure sales tactics which are relentless in Egypt. The driver may have had the toughest job but navigated the traffic flawlessly. Great tour!
Our tour guide knew...
Marco_R, Mar 2023
Our tour guide knew everything, and was very dedicated and patience. Always available for any question, he brought us around for 8 hours in Cairo.

Exceptional tour
Aqif_K, Mar 2023
Taha was perfect and had everything covered , he even took us to the Papyrus and Scent store. It was money well spent.
Perfect tour of Cairo's highlights
habermztx303, Mar 2023
We had a great time with Manar! She was very knowledgeable and took some great pictures of us. Everything was well planned and we were able to hit all the highlights of Cairo in one day! If you only have one day in Cairo, I would definitely recommend this tour!
