Truly unique experience. We are family of four and had a great time on this tour. Everything was well organized and went smoothly, from pickup and transportations to visiting the pyramids without any side distractions. Our guide Sam was very knowledgeable and followed our pace. Great tour if you want to see and learn more about old Egypt.

Due to a mix up by me, we arrived in Cairo airport on the wrong date. The tour provider agreed to do the tour and I arranged to meet the tour guide at Giza. I took an Uber and met the tour guide as planned. Despite this mishap by me the tour went very well. Our tour guide was called Fady. We went to the great pyramid and my daughter went into the Pyramid as arranged. My son and daughter also did the camel ride at an extra cost. I gave the money £25 (for two people) to Fady who arranged the camel rides. These were great. We didn’t go to the other two pyramids but made our way to the Sphinx. We took some photos and then went for a quick lunch and then were taken to a bazaar where they sell gold and silver rings and jewellery. We did buy a ring and cartouche for a necklace in silver. This cost £55. We also bought small souvenirs for £5. We ended the day and were dropped off at the airport. It felt a bit rushed but did enjoy the tour. You do need transport to get around Giza pyramids.

Great Experience. Ahmed Zaki was an amazing guide and my family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The car was comfortable and special mention the to driver as well , he was pleasant and added to the experience. We liked the fact that Ahmed explained the history of the pyramids in the car journey on the way and allowed us to roam around and enjoy the pyramids in the flesh. Highly recommend to anyone that is looking to do a tour to the pyramids that is not too strenuous.
