I totally recommend this tour is you are looking for the highlights and insights to the pyramids. The history and information provided to us by our guide as mind filling and blowing at the same time! Our guide walked us through the labyrinth of the museum showing us amazing things and discussing in great detail the significance of each piece. Just to understand, you could easily spend three days in the museum just to see most of the artifacts! We had a special request for young lady Gallebaya's, to which another guide mentioned the best Egyptian cotton is found in Cairo and our guide accommodated our ask and took us to a wonderful store and mission accomplished. Next we traveled to the Pyramids. Again, if you think the pyramids are big, and they are getting around them took three different car rides! There is a lot going on but our guide and our driver knew where to go, how to get there and we never seemed to get stuck in traffic! Great time, and cannot recommend this tour enough!
The tour was booked for the wrong day. The contact info for the travel company was incorrect. I tried calling both numbers they had listed in order to rectify the issue with the dates and both numbers were out of service and nobody responded to my email. They then charged me for a full tour that I did not receive.
Great tour - well worth going privately. The guide provided lots of information and basically let us do lots of walking around on our own. Didn't feel like we got to really see the Bazaar as much so we went back again a different day.
Did you ever think that you could stand inside the great pyramid ALONE? I actually did this! The day of my private tour there were very few tourists and for just about a minute I got to be alone in the king's chamber listening to the sounds of the pyramid. So amazing! Taking a private tour means you can focus your time on things that are really interesting to you. Want to check out the boat museum instead of riding a camel? No problem! Done with the sphinx and want to check out the area around the pyramids for a little while? Go for it! We felt like we could ask our guide anything. FYI, have some small currency available in case you want to take photos of people or their animals. Some people demand payment for a photo, but even if they don't it's polite to ask and compensate them if you think the subject would make for a great shot. A great day, another great tour!
Wow - this was an incredible experience. Our tour guide, Ahmet Achmed was unbelievable. He was knowledgeable, engaging, full of energy and customized the day so we had a full experience. We only had one day in Cairo so Ahmet made sure it was a memorable experience. It's a beautiful city and we are so grateful that we got to spend the day touring with Ahmet who has a great way of presenting the story of Egypt that kept us entertained all day. Definitely recommend. Also, the tour company was exceptional at customer service. They were very responsive and are highly, highly recommended. Thanks!
WOW! This was a fabulous first day in Cairo.
I would insist that anyone coming to Cairo should do this trip, unless you are dead-set on spending an entire day at the Egyptian Museum. It was great to get our bearings with a guide, and we felt safe the whole time. The driver was great, even though general driving in Giza/Cairo isn't :
Our guide Ahmet? was phenomenal. He was very aware of how warm the day would be and paced things accordingly. He was an excellent guide through the pyramids and Egypt Museum and was willing to answer all of our questions. He took great pictures of us, too! Hearing about history from a local made a huge impact on us. We like to think of ourselves as budget travelers, but this tour was worth every penny.
We liked how the private tour made our plans more flexible-- we were able to add in a quick camel photo ride and entering the pyramids for an extra cost. He let us pick how much time we wanted to spend at the Bazaar on our own, and we found 45-60 minutes was plenty of time for us.
Be prepared to have some money along to pay for the Mummy Room, a camel ride, Bazaar shopping, etc. if any of those interest you... AND enough for tips, because our guide and driver were both fantastic. They stopped at an ATM for us along the way.
Bring water along!
If you have limited time in Cairo as we did, I would highly recommend doing this tour the first day and a guided tour to Dashur, Memphis, Sakkara Saquara, and the Great Pyramids yes, a second time on the second day.
