Absolutely worth the money! Pick up from hotel on time, smooth transfer to the airport and quick flight ✈️ Everyone was sleeping during flight. My guide Mohamed waited outside the airport and led me to the mini bus. He was very nice and positive person. Firstly, nice walk through the old market awaiting The Pyramids to open. You don’t have to carry your backpack as our bus was always near. You wait about 5 minutes for guides to collect tickets, no queues. Few hours for pyramids so you have plenty of time to take photos. Our guide was with me and my kids all the time and was sooo kind taking photos, helping to take the best shots! Telling us how to pose to have the best images. After that, we went to perfume shop, had tea ☕️ and a little talk about their natural oils. Then, we went for lunch to a buffet style restaurant which had plenty of space and their food was really good. Next, Egyptian Museum, it is a MUST! Mohamed is really an excellent guide and has a broad knowledge *****

OceanAir travels did an excellent job! Our contact, Ms. Magdy, was exceptional - quick, responsive, and thoughtful. Adel was an amazing guide - a learned Egyptologist with a knack for storytelling and with a wonderful sense of humor. Moustapha was a wonderful driver - prompt courteous, fire sly and welcoming. Every aspect from logistics to lunch was perfectly organized. We just showed up and enjoyed it all!

We took the private tour option (recommended). We loved the tour with our guide Ali, super attentive and spoke Spanish. He explained the whole history of each temple and tombs to us, we ate at a local restaurant and avoided street vendors at all times.

It was really a great day. Very good organization and process. Ramadan was a great guide! You have to see the pyramids once in a lifetime! Thanks again to everyone involved for an unforgettable day!

Shorouk and our guide Sameh were amazing, very attentive to our every need. Would highly recommend this tour ! Thanks so much
