I thoroughly enjoyed my experience on this excursion. My tour guide and driver were Sahl and Mag. We left pretty earlier for my tour; however, it was definitely worth it to beat the crowds. Sahl took a lot of pictures with my camera and was very knowledgeable about the history of the pyramids.
We booked our tour through Viator and the whole process was very easy and professional. The day of the tour, we were picked up right on time in our hotel lobby by Mamdouh Ismail, a Senior Egyptologist with Your Egypt Tours. The tour van was new and clean with a professional driver, something that is important on the wild streets of Cairo. Mamdouh spoke very clear English and commanded an extensive knowledge of Egyptology, making the tour much more informative and interesting. He was also very flexible and took us to the Solar Boat at the Great Pyramid, per our request, even though it wasn't specifically included in the tour. Great Thanks to Mamdouh Ismail and Your Egypt Tours!
Our tour guide Husain was awesome. Knowledgable and friendly, he went out of his way to show us around and to explain as much as possible. His driver with a van stood by to pick us up always on time. Great experience, great guide, we had an awesome time thank you!
Our guide forgot his name, added a photo of him was extremely knowledgeable. He can actually read hieroglyphics.
An excellent tour with an extremely knowledgeable tour guide who really brought Ancient Egypt to life. We were lucky enough to have Mamdouh to ourselves and he made every effort to cover everything we wanted to see and do, even where to take the best photos. We had a wonderful experience and have so many photos and memories to look back on. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour, it really is a must see and do when visiting Cairo.
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!
