Awesome day in Cairo
Catherine_M, Feb 2024
Such a fun experience. We loved the camels and the belly dancing the best. It was a great way to see the city and sights.
Great Day Tour Highly Recommended
Alain_T, Oct 2023
For those who have a limited time in Cairo. This day tour covered everything that you would want to see including the pyramids and the museum. Lunch was excellent and the dinner cruise was a treat. Our guide, Fatima was very knowledgeable and conveyed the history of the locations with great enthusiasm. From pickup to drop off our group had a great time and highly recommend this tour. Thanks again Fatima and Mohammad.
Perfect tour for a full day of sightseeing
Diane_S, Mar 2023
What a wonderful day! I only had 1 full day in Cairo/Giza and this tour included everything I wanted to see and do. The certified egyptologist was wonderful and very informative. All the activities were amazing and it was my birthday so they went out of their way to make it extra special... Perfect tour for 1 day in Cairo!
Highly Recommended
Umair_C, Feb 2023
We loved every single part of this tour. We were really overwhelmed by the kindness, professional conduct and profound knowledge of our guide Ameenah. She explained historical significance of every single place we went to. My kids asked her heaps of questions and she always answered the questions with a smile on her face. The driver Ibrahim was such an amazing person. Always smiling and engaging us. He took us to the river nile cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Many thanks Ibrahim , Ameenah and Pyramids Land tours team, we shall always remember you. Many thanks from Cheema family.
Great 1 day tour! highly recommend tour if you are pressed for time in Cairo
Shirley_R, Nov 2022
We requested a Spanish speaking tour guide. Rasha was sent and she was incredible! She was able to give us a complete tour of Cairo in 1 day. Our group consisted of 2 elders and Rasha was very accommodating and patient. She moved us along throughout the different stops, explained things very well so we would not be surprised by people wanting money, and helped us appreciate all the great sites. Rasha was open to answering all of our questions. We felt safe and felt we saw all of the highlights of Cairo in 1 day. Highly recommend Rasha!

Cairo first timer
Shameka_B, Nov 2021
Very impressed with tour to Giza and cotton factory! Lunch was good, Amina our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience amazing! The cruise was nice being on the water but the boat is outdated and the food was 1 star, being generous! Belly dancer was nice but I’m used to real traditional belly dancers. All in all a good time but day part of the tour was GR8
Incredible Value!
Andrea_S, May 2021
We had a wonderful day with Zaneb! She was highly knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions- plus she was incredibly patient with us and the 5 year-old we were travelling with :) Considering all of the tickets included in this tour, plus the fact that you get lunch and dinner, it really is unbeatable value. I would highly recommend it for anyone tight on time in Cairo and looking to take in the major sights. My only suggestion is to request upstairs/outdoor seating on the dinner cruise. It really is a much nicer experience from the rooftop!

What an amazing Experience!! This was my first trip to Egypt and I could not have been in better hands to explore this wonderful city Heba A. Amer !! She was delightful and a very entertaining /informative tour guide! The whole time I felt treated as a welcome guest never like a tourist. The tour was magnificent! Since I've already seen the Giza Pyramids, Heba was gracious to accommodate me and tailor some new areas to explore. People like Heba makes visiting Egypt a delightful experience you want to repeat over and over.

We had the pleaser of having Mohamed Osama as our guide on this tour from Let's Explore Egypt. He discussed in great detail the history of the Giza pyramids, Sphinx, and the history regarding the hanging churches and the oldest Jewish synagogue in old Cairo. Mohamed is an excellent guide that you are certain to learn a lot from.

Chad N, Feb 2018
Had an amazing day and a half tour with Mohamad aka Mady. First day we toured the Cairo Tower, Nile River sailing and Mokkatam Hills and finished the night with a great dinner of koshary. Second day we toured the Pyramids of Giza, The Great Sphinx, Egyptian Museum, Coptic Cairo, Khan El-khalili Bazaar, dinner cruise with belly dancer. Mady was awesome always making sure I was filled in on all of the details we were visiting and in-depth of all of the history. He was also a big help in making sure I picked up meaningful and authentic to Egypt only gifts and items to remember my time here in this great country. I would highly recommend a tour with Lets Explore Egypt and for sure Mady as your guide. You will not go wrong and the experience is sure to be very special and personal to you. If I could give 6 stars I would.

Elizabeth D, Jan 2018
We took this private tour with Waleed as our tour guide. We just loved it! Waleed was well-informed, accommodating, and most importantly funny! He knows a lot of details about ancient Egyptian history and is passionate about it. It was clear that he really wanted to be sure we had a good time. He also offered to take a lot of photos for us - he knew all the great shots, too. Thanks, Waleed! We'll absolutely book again if we go to other parts of Egypt.

Shirish_M, Jan 2018
Our tour guide Zenab was very informative and well versed with her job. When we went to the museum, she showed the highlights and gave us lot of information on Egyptian history. There was no need for us to have a separate museum guide. We also had good conversations about general life in Egypt. She was enthusiastic and made our trip fun. She discussed with us what our interests were and planned the trip accordingly. The service was prompt, they guide and the driver were always there on time, courteous and very well organized. We would highly recommend her.

This was an amazing one day tour of...
Glendal W, Oct 2017
This was an amazing one day tour of Cairo and GIza that hit all the sites I really wanted to see in short time available. It started with a tour of the Egyptian Museum that highlighted the amazing history of this country. The exhibits were very informative and seeing the statues, mummies, jewelry, sarcophagus, and the many features of the ancient history of Egypt was a thrill. From the Egyptian museum we proceeded to Giza to see the pyramids and sphinx. There was an excellent lunch before we went to the Pyramids that provided some time to relax and recharge. After the lunch we went to the Pyramids and the Sphinx. This was a lifelong dream to see these magnificent historic sites. There was even time for a camel ride as well. Following that and because we had some time before the evening dinner cruise on the Nile, we stopped at a perfume show, then a silver shop, and, finally, a Egyptian cotton linen shop with plenty of time to see everything and make some purchases. After that we went to the boat and had the chance to see the sunset over the Nile River. There was a very nice dinner onboard that was buffet style and then some great entertainment, a singer, a belly dancer, and then two dancers doing some incredible twirling around the floor. This was very unusual and was fantastic. So, by the end of the day I had seen the things I had most wanted to see, had plenty of time to enjoy them, learned so much, and had time for even more surprises. I cannot say enough about the best tour guide you will ever have, Manar Atwa, and the driver Hamdi. Manar is an expert on Egyptian history, has advanced degree in Egyptian history and architecture, and can tell you so much you will be absolutely amazed. Manar is the best. Hamdi told me that to drive in Cairo you need three things: good horn, good brakes, and good luck. Well I can tell you that you need a forth, and that is a good driver and Hamdi is great driver. I highly recommend you take this tour and see the main highlights of Cairo and enjoy the whole day. But do it with Manar and Hamdi. They are great and will make you day tour memorable.

Anthony S, Aug 2016
My Day with Bassam was beyond awesome! He is very intelligent and courteous of your time and interest of the tour. It was far from your average Boring talking all day tour. He was funny and made you want to learn so much about Egypt. There was never a dull moment. He takes your pictures and makes sure you know all kinds of fun facts about Egypt. He was very punctual and even waited around for me even tho i was 20 minutes late :( We started our day at the pyramids. The camel guys seem to all know him and weren't pushy but he did warn me about them. After taking illusion photos for me and seeing the pyramids and the sphinx we went to the papyrus shop where a lady gave me a lesson on the history of papyrus and made me a custom piece. We then went to the oil/perfume shop where i had tea and had perfume prepared for me. After that we went to have lunch while overlooking the pyramids. The food was great! We then went to the Egyptian Museum where he walked me through the highlights of the history of Egypt and special artifacts. After seeing that i was getting a bit tired, he took me back to my hotel for an hour and 30 minute break. He then picked me up on time again as we went to the Andrea Cruise to have dinner on the nile river! The food was traditional Egyptian food buffet style. There was entertainment on the cruise and a belly dancer and a guy dancer. That concluded our day and i must say it was a long but enjoyable one. The price i paid was well spent! I never visit a place twice but i definitely would come back to Egypt to enjoy another tour with Bassam!

This day trip AMAIZING, our guide, Wael , was great!!! he was very friendly, very educated, and was very good planning our trip, noticing if we were tired from the heat, etc... he gave us time to rest, and always asking us if we were doing ok. He made a big difference in our short trip to Egypt, We were very lucky to have him with us!
