Well planned out tour for basic introduction to Egyptian history. If you’re looking for a very in depth history then I’d recommend something more focus for a longer duration, there’s a lot planned in the day and not enough time to really get intimate. Knowledgeable guide and fantastic driver (you need one, traffic in Cairo is scary for foreigners). Standard fare for an Egyptian tour consisting of the base tour plus a few added stops to show you cool things but are sort of tourist traps to get you to buy things. Papyrus paper making was cool, carpet making is interesting but not practical. If you want to focus on the tour and not tourist traps recommend getting a detailed itinerary in advance and letting your guide know you’re not interested in the added stops. We added on the extra 1 hour camel ride but it was exactly 19 minutes long that consisted of a short walk to take a couple pictures and back.

My 10 year old son and I had a great day visiting the Giza pyramids, Sakkara and Memphis. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Egyptian history and archaeology - and he could answer all my many questions about the sites we visited, how to read the hieroglyphs, how to build a pyramid etc.

A beautiful experience, especially thanks to our guide Magdy, who spoke Italian very well and made us passionate about Egyptian history! I highly recommend!

The transportation was really very good and the whole experience was perfect.

Doaa our guide we enjoyed her company. Very professional and knowledgeable.
