Must-do - and go inside the pyramid!
Elizabeth_E, Apr 2024
Excellent tour of the pyramids and sphinx. Our tour guide Mona met us at the hotel and helped us get tickets for the complex. She gave us a really interesting history of the pyramids and took some brilliant photos of us. We went inside the Great Pyramid - which was very airless but amazing to climb. Monaco took us to see the other two pyramids and also the smaller ones, and then to a spot for some panoramic shots. Lastly we visited the sphinx. An excellent half day trip - packed with things to see and with an excellent guide.
Best tour experince we could have asked for! Knowledgable and kind guide!

We had a wonderful experience with our guide Mohamed. He picked us up 5 minutes before our planned time at a location of our choice, and he was incredibly kind and knowledgeable; after the tour, he even recommended us to an Egyptian paper museum and the driver dropped us off safely. Mohamed gave us a quick guide to Cairo even before we got to the pyramids, and at the pyramids, we learned so much about the history of the region/the pyramids that we would have otherwise completely missed. He gave us plenty of time to take photos and brought us to great photo spots, including a scenic overlook of the 3 pyramids and the Sphinx. Overall, we had a great experience. Would definitely recommend this service to anyone going to Egypt/the pyramids for the first time in general, and those who want to learn more about the pyramids!!

It was a wonderful trip. Guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, polite and humble. Lunch was wonderful. Whole experience was mind blowing
Great experience !

We used this company in April ‘24. Overall it was a great experience, our tour guide Mimo was very knowledgeable and took us through the planned places. Two of our group of 4 chose to go inside the Great Pyramid and Mimo offered to take the other two to smaller pyramids. The only minor thing was the scare we got when the guide told us maybe we got our hotel name wrong and that he might be at a different hotel! Secondly if you are doing camel ride, make sure to ask for adult camel guy, we had boys who guided our camels and we’re playing around and were not quite attentive to our ask for pictures.
Company seems to do...
Victor_B, Apr 2024
Company seems to do little to no quality controll. We did two tours, one very good, one very bad. For the first one we got lucky and got a good guide, not so much for the second tour. This semms to be consistent with previous reviews. If you go with this company, you will just have to role the dice and hope for the best!
Great tour guide team!
Champa_S, Apr 2024
Mohamed was a fantastic tour guide and really was great at explaining the history of the Pyramids plus more about Egypt overall. Mo guided us throughout the tour from the time we sat in the car until he finished the tour. He went to lengths to look after us as his own friends and really advised us on what to say and what not to say and do when he was not able to go with us such as going inside the pyramid (addition to our tour). Thank you Mo!!
Great trip to the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx
David_B, Apr 2024
A wonderful day, Muhammed was a great guide, full of interesting facts about Egypt and even gave us advice for after the tour. Would definitely recommend.
Good tour, too fast, pushes factory visit.
Dany_L, Apr 2024
Knowledgable and kind guide. Tour was way too fast. Almost done by 10h30 when end time was supposed to be 13h. Not enough time at pyramids. Driver was good. Guide/tour pushed us to visit factory so we buy stuff. We extended the tour with Memphis and Saqqara. That part was 5*
Private guide Fatima
Vlad_G, Apr 2024
Our private guide Fatima was absolutely amazing and professionally. We felt like we knew it her from the past. Very calm and with very good English. Glad to have her as guide.
Highly recommended
Adela_B, Apr 2024
We would highly recommend it. We had a great tour with Muhammad, was really understanding as we were with our autistic child so he tried to make it easier and faster on our request but he made sure we get to see what was important. We also visited the papyrus museum and essential oil factory which had amazing aromatherapy oils(I’ve bought some but no pressure to buy)
Many thanks Haitham🙏
Ali_A, Apr 2024
We had a fantastic tour with Haitham. Great guid who has amazing knowledge and was very keen to explain everything to us. I would definitely recommend my friends and family to do the trip with him when they are visiting the Pyramids.
Giza during a layover!
Ayodele_I, Mar 2024
Nada Alaa and Mohammed Farag, were extremely accommodating! They picked us up from the airport on time and had cold water waiting for us. We visted during a layovernl and only had 3 hours to visit the Pyramids, and the Sphinx. We were able to visit all of sights and ride camels. I wish that we could have spent more time with them. We would do it all over again!
Ghazal_R, Mar 2024
We had a full tour of the three pyramids. We went for camel riding and the sphinx too. Rawan was our tour guide and she made the experience memorable. We went to papyrus and essence shop which was great too. I highly recommend them.
Great experience
Nestor_L, Mar 2024
All was good with Mohamed. He arrived on time at our hotel and we visited all the sites specified in the itinerary. His historical knowledge was deep and accurate and was available to answer all our questions. Thanks for a great experience!
An absolute must!
Ilse_H, Mar 2024
Abdu was incredibly from beginning to end. Not only was he knowledgeable, he never forced anything else onto us like we’ve experienced with other tours. He gave us great tips to help navigate our time in Egypt. The tour was informative and my children loved the history lessons! Really amazing day 1!
Disappointing Tour
John_G, Mar 2024
- It was disappointing that the guide suggests not entering the pyramid's because for him “it’s a waste of time”. I understand that you don’t really see much inside but I come from Chile and will not waste the opportunity of going inside the pyramid at least for the experience. - Tour guide attitude change when expressing that our group had no interest in going to the perfume shop after the Giza plateau complex. (Which is not included in the detailed tour plan). - When we went to the panoramic view to take pictures it wasn’t the best spot and the guide blamed it on my grandparents telling me that they couldnt walk that far. Conclusion: It seems like they are trying to do everything as fast as possible so they can bring you to the oil/perfume shop so as soon as we demonstrated no interest on going out tour guide change his attitude. Not recomendable, don’t waste your money here…
Highly recommended for a trip to the Pyramids!
Eleni_M, Mar 2024
The guide and driver were both very kind and professional. We didn’t feel rushed to do the sightseeing and we were not taken to any commercial store for shopping.
Thank you, Sameh!
James_L, Mar 2024
We booked our tour pretty last minute and luckily got paired up with Sameh, a genuinely nice guy who is very knowledgeable about Egyptian culture and the history of the Giza plateau. He was easy to talk to, and responsive via WhatsApp. Our tickets were all arranged ahead of time, which was nice when it meant we could skip the long queue of tourists waiting to purchase theirs. Going with Sameh meant all our questions were answered, we weren’t hassled by any salesmen, and we had a very efficient trip around the plateau. Camel rides were absolutely the highlight - loved every second! We opted to skip the lunch as we had an appointment to make in the afternoon, so can’t speak to the quality. Unrelated to our time with Sameh… If you’re at all claustrophobic, have bad knees, or a big bum, I’d advise not going inside the Great Pyramid. While an interesting experience, it’s super hot and crowded inside.. and relatively unremarkable compared to the exterior.
Very fun!
Tom_W, Mar 2024
We had a fantastic time. Muhamed was very enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable on all our questions about the pyramids and everything else we asked on ancient Egypt. A great trip, nice comfortable car too. Highly recommend!
Great tour with MoMo
chen_w, Mar 2024
We had a great tour with Muhammad Saeed (MoMo), he is knowlegeble and caring for all details, and he knows all good phot o spots so we had many wonderful photos. Of course, Pyramids and Shpinx are stunning,we love it!
