Rasha yehia Mubarak was our tour guide - she was excellent. So friendly and helpful. Rashia has lots of interesting knowledge on the history of the pyramids and she made the experience so memorable for us. She always made sure we had everything we needed and was fun on the tour. The driver Musmahood was also really friendly and opened the car door for us at every stop. Thanks for a great experience!

Highly Recommended. The pick-up from the hotel was punctual and reliable. We booked a German guide. I recommend a private tour it is absolutely worth your money. Our guide Mohammed Fatih spoke perfect German and showed us the pyramids of Gizeh from their best side. Mohammed is not only very knowledgeable about history, he also took absolutely dreamy pictures of us. We can absolutely recommend Mohammed Fatih. Many thanks to the agency for the great service. We would be happy to recommend you. 5 stars from us... ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

The tour was great. Our guide Saber did a fantastic job in showing us the piramids and the sfinx, and could tell us a lot of stories. Both he and the driver were very friendly. The only comment for the tour operator - and people who might book for the same reason - is that we originally booked for an afternoon tour with pickup at 12:00. This was changed to 9.30am. But other than that, I can highly recommend taking the time to visit the pyramids & sfinx seperately like this if you have the time, and do other additional activities on seperate days.
