Very good tour overall… but…
Adrian_d, Apr 2024
Tour guide Ahmed Elsayed was excellent, had great knowledge, offered to make photos, very nice overall. Mina the driver was also super nice, offered to stop on the way back for photos by the Nile, etc. The museums and pyramids are of course a must-see and lunch was great, at a place where we had a great view of the pyramids. I feel however that the price-quality ratio is definitely not right. There were too way too many programmed shipping stops (a souvenir shop, an essential oils place, and a papyrus art shop) that were ok but super expensive, and some of them a bit too pushy. Also, two weeks in advance I reserved a tour that said hotel pick up was included, I mentioned what my hotel was since the moment I reserved, and the night before the tour they sent me a message saying that it was going to be an extra 10 dollars for pick-up because my hotel was “too far”. Honestly, considering the tour price and the timing of that message, that felt kind of like a rip-off…
Excellent

Guide and driver 10/10
Lauren_D, Mar 2024
Our guide and driver were amazing. They made sure we learned as much history as we could and gave us ideas on what to purchase and what to avoid. We felt very safe and would love to have been able to book the same guide and driver for our entire stay.
It is so awesome. Well...
jenny_w, Mar 2024
It is so awesome. Well arrangements. Everything is so perfect. My guide is very friendly and nice and professional.
Gamal the guide and Andrew the driver are amazing
Gary_L, Mar 2024
Gamal customized this tour around my wife's passion for history. We skipped some tourist portions to go places that had much more history associated with it. Andrew picked us up promptly at 9am and navigated the cairo traffic flawlessly. Could not if asked for a better tour.
5 star tour
Ruben_D, Mar 2024
Our guide Sheriff made this tour really exceptional, the food at lunch was great too in a quality restaurant and not in the typical touristy buffets. This is a once in a lifetime experience and you definitely want to do it guided and not by yourself.
Ahmed Elsayed
Hunter_C, Mar 2024
Ahmed Elsayed was our guide and he was amazing. We would highly recommend him and this trip to anyone wanting to explore Cairo and Giza!
Amazing tour of the pyramids
Briant_D, Feb 2024
Amazing tour! Ahmed Elsayed was Ana amazing tour and Basim was a great driver! I highly recommend to anyone
Amazing tour with the best tour guide
PIRIL_E, Jan 2024
The tour was amazing! Our guide Sam was great, he was super knowledgeable, friendly, professional and polite. We had the best time, visiting the impressive Pyramids, Saqqara and Memphis. We would definitely recommend this tour.
The best tour we went on during our trip!
James_G, Jan 2024
The tour was amazing, and Ahmed was the best tour guide out of all the tours we did. Very knowledgeable and down to Earth. I definitely recommend going inside the pyramid. It's extra but it's worth it. The camel ride was fun and easier than expected. We decided to add on the four wheeler(they're automatic so anyone can drive them) at the end of the tour and after walking around all day it was nice to let loose, and we got some amazing videos and pictures of that.
An all right experience
Asisa_P, Jan 2024
My tour guide was great. The only thing I would change is the mandatory 2 hour shopping. I would have rather been at Giza during that time. We spent more time at the shopping center than we did the pyramids.
Best tour ever!
Benny_B, Jan 2024
Our tour guide Sam was amazing. He took good care of us and made sure we understood the locals and our environment. Sam was very knowledgeable about Egyptian history and took amazing photos. Sam thank you so much and we appreciate you!
Not worth the money
Apoorv_G, Jan 2024
Not worth the money. The guide doesn't accommodate any request and doesn't give enough context on each of the places.
Not worth the price
Venkatesh_I, Jan 2024
Not worth $195 for sure. The guide just doesn't give enough context on each of the places, just gives a surface level knowledge. I had to understand the nuances via Chat GPT.
A+ Adventure and a feeling of creating a true friendship
Yunus_H, Dec 2023
Wael and Gorge were excellent. At first I was thinking of just seeing the pyramids myself but I decided to book a tour last second. It was a great decision. I felt like a VIP with Wael navigating me through a journey of history and getting me past the unfortunate realities of peddlers and merchants that can hassle tourists. With a driver we were able to see the sites really quickly and efficiently and Wael presented a story of the dynastic evolutions from 3600bc to the present. Wael was amazing and Gorge kept me entertained while navigating the bustling streets of Giza. I do hope to see them again.
The tour you want when going to Egypt
Timothy_N, Dec 2023
A must go. Saw the iconic pyramids and sphinx. Got to go inside and see hieroglyphs and I got a frameworthy photo on a camel with pyramids in the background. What I wanted out of my Egypt tour! My tour guide Eman was great. Very knowledgeable and she and the driver took me afterwards to go get camel liver (also a must try!)
Absolutely amazing!
Lara_M, Dec 2023
Absolutely amazing from start to finish! My husband and I were lucky enough to have Sayed and professional photographer George for our tour and it was was the most stunning day. Both men go above and beyond for you and make every thing seem less. Would highly highly recommend when you visit Egypt!
Don’t miss this tour
Melissa_M, Dec 2023
Can’t say enough good things? Guide and driver were both very informative and helpful! Enjoyed this tour a lot!

Katelyn_C, Nov 2023
I researched all the tours available on Viator. I had a chart comparing them all, so let me save you time. Pick this one! I’m so glad I did. Sayed Mohammed is an INCREDIBLE tour guide! Ask for him! He provides fascinating insights and facts on all the sites and he knows all the best photo locations. I love history, and Sayed never tired of answering my questions! His friendly demeanor made the trip feel more personal and authentic. He treated me like a friend (not another “tourist”). From providing a welcome bag of snacks to personalizing the tour content, he truly goes above and beyond. He also shared about life in modern-day Egypt and about his family. I appreciated his personal touch. He never rushed me from site to site. Yet, we still remained on schedule. He also adapted the schedule to take me to a papyrus shop, where I saw a demo and bought great gifts. Mina Lotfy was our driver and he was equally impressive. Traffic in Egypt is chaotic, but Mina calmly, safely, and expertly maneuvered through it all. His car was clean, comfortable, and even has ports to charge your phone. I definitely appreciated the great AC. Plus, he went out of his way to find a coffee shop for me when I needed some more caffeine. When I forgot something at the end of the tour, he came back to meet me. I experienced many drivers while in Cairo, but Mina is BY FAR the best!! I wish I could have him as a driver for all my tours! He went out of his way to be kind and friendly! I will also note that I am a single female traveler and both of them made me feel really safe. They even stayed with me to ensure I had company. Sayed always gave me a heads up to ensure I wasn’t haggled or taken advantage of. Here’s a quick ranking on value: - Expertise of Guide: Excellent - Pace of Itinerary: Excellent - Flexibility and Adaptability: Excellent - Driving and Safety: Excellent - Photo Spots: Excellent - Customer Service: Excellent - Overall quality: Excellent - Value: Excellent At first glance, this tour is priced slightly higher than others, but there’s a reason for it. It includes ALL the entrance tickets! It also hits all the spots and includes lunch and a camel ride. The quality is superb. The only thing I would change is that the main company should be more responsive via the Viator messaging app prior to the trip. This isn’t a reflection of Sayed. It’s the operator who handles inquiries prior to a guide being selected. I recommend you use the number associated with the tour operator not the Viator messaging if you have questions in advance. Thanks!
Top notch tour with all the must do's in one!
Mark_P, Nov 2023
They arranged everything for us pick up to drop off back at hotel. Our tour guide Ahmed E. was awesome! Easy to understand and was very passionate about history. We learned so much from him. You could tell he was a very experienced tour guide by being able to get us right through everything and keep the others from bugging us too much. We fit a lot in a single day which was what we wanted as our time was limited to try to see everything. Super friendly and personable as well. He helped us take pictures which was a fantastic help. Having a dedicated driver for quick drop off and pick up at all the stops was great as well making it most efficient with our time. Not know what all we needed to stop and see, this worked out great. Lunch was safe and great food. Camel ride was fun and got some great pictures as well. Being a private tour was nice to be able to spend as little or as much time as we wanted at each stop. We were also interested in attending a show later that evening and went above and beyond arranging everything for us there as well and ended up being the same driver. He was really great as well!
