This tour was magical. The tour guides are incredible. They will pick you up & drop you off at your hotel. They will communicate with you throughout the trip. The tour guides & Bedouins will look after you. They are very kind & friendly. The trip is amazing: you will be picked up in the evening & it's three hours to the mountains in the bus then it's another three hours to walk or climb the mountain then you wait for the sunrise. It's magnificent even the walk in the night climbing the mountain: you will see the stars the moon & the whole galaxy. It it truly magical & beautiful!!!!

Overall the tour was good. We received what we expected. The only downsides were that camel ride didn’t last long and toilet wasn’t very good. But I was surprised that agency offered me to have the same tour after receiving my feedback for free. We weren’t able to accept it as we were about to depart back home so they arranged free transfer to airport as an apology. That was really nice and we enjoyed it. Therefore totally can recommend this agency for their service!!

I had the best day ever! The tour guide was very friendly and kind. The operating tour communicated with me giving clear & important information for the tour. The price is fantastic too because they pick you up from your hotel & and take you to Cairo museum, then to boat trip in the River Nile then free lunch & then final trip to see the pyramids. Then finally they take you back to your hotel. The bus drivers and all the tour guides are very friendly and kind.

You have to be fit and go up with a camel to the top is incredible, it is not worth doing it walking. Then going down is different. You have to do the 750 steps on foot, but it's worth it.

Such a lovely experience it felt like we were doing so much. Tamir was lovely he took care of us well. We would defo recommend this to our family and friends. Thank you :)
