Can't describe the experience other than people need to visit this great land where pyramids, architecture, landscape, people and vastness of information come together. Truly recommend visiting and I will see this place again with more people.
That is a great tour. The Giza pyramids are always formidable. I paid extra to get into the burial chamber of Khufu Pyramid and to take a camel ride, as I did not want to miss anything. The tour guide Taha is very knowledgeable and professional. He explained everything in detail to me and took a lot of photos for me during the tour.
Amazing tour, Egyptologists make the journey extra special as they explain all the nuances of what you are seeing. Went into the King Titi tomb as it was advised this was the only one with heiroglyphs, while I skipped out on the 200 EGP Great Pyramid entrance fee as the walls are bare. Lots of great history and backstory throughout the day, would recommend them for any tour!
First, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call at the hotel from Hussein the night before the trip to confirm pickup time and location. Then, due to weather conditions not very clear skies, we rearranged the trip and did the Memphis Museum first and then to Saqqara. On Hussein's recommendation, we went inside Titi's pyramid and the military leader's chamber...absolutely great trip. He handled all the tips, suggestions for pictures, and local nuances. Then on to the Pyramids for the camel ride around and to Giza...which were perfect and the weather had cleared up nicely. Finally, after seven hours, he was still open to some last-minute shopping and took us in a couple places although I believe this is a hit or miss part of the trip as many shops sell the same 'one of a kind/top quality' items for different prices...suggest you shop around. We only had one day in Cairo, which isn't enough to really see all the city has to offer, but we accomplished what we came to do and it was due to the fantastic timing and efficiency of our guide.
It was fun and amazing!
My tour guide Abraham was tremendous. He was an incredibly informed Egyptologist with an amazing sense of humor. Your Egypt Tours was the local operator, and they were the highlight of my Egypt visit. Highly recommended!!!
I really liked the tour! It was amazing!
I would highly recommend Your Egypt Tours to anyone seeking a safe, friendly, professional and reliable tour company in Egypt. I would like to give special thanks to my tour guide Taha who did everything possible to ensure a fun and worry-free tour to the pyramids. The time spent at different locations was very flexible, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. At no point in time did I ever feel rushed, and I always felt that I could easily talk to my guide who really did care about making the day as enjoyable and personalized as possible. Traveling with this company I felt safe as a solo traveler and did not feel like I had to worry about anything. There were countless opportunities to stop and take good pictures, which was made even better as Taha was always interested in helping capture some awesome memories. When I come back to Egypt in the future, I will definitely be looking to do more traveling with this company and my favorite guide. A lifelong dream had always been to see the pyramids, in which case and I am very thankful that I chose this company and had Taha as my guide.
