Our guide was really and knowledgeable. The only thing is that he was 1 hour late and also we came back around 5pm instead of 1 pm, but we did extra activities e.g. camel rides and quads so it was totally fine. It is better to pay for the extra activities once you are there. Totally recommended!

Hazem was the best tour guide one can ask for! I was supposed to go with my friends but due to slight miscommunication I ended up doing the tour alone! And honestly I had so much fun still! Hazem took very great care of me and was very concerned about my safety, me tripping or me being harassed by pushy merchands. He took so many pictures of me and brought me to the best spots to be sure I could have lovely photos and memories I could look back too. He was also knowledgeable and knew the history well. We made an extra stop to some perfume, papyrus and cotton factories and also had lunch in a nice restaurant which offered some traditional buffet which was a really great way to end this lovely half day! Would definitely recommend! (Plus the pick you up and drop you back directly where you are staying which is a very nice point as navigating Cairo and traffic are quite chaotic)

The trip would have gotten an excellent rating if we didn't get off to such a bumpy start. Had to wait nearly 30+ minutes for our pickup and then another 30 minutes for the guide to join us in Giza. Our 9am start turned into an 11:30 start. All delays aside, the rest of the trip was excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable and accommodating. We were able to move between sites efficiently, but never felt raced. We even added a camel ride to our session without any hassle. The guide’s photography skills added to the experience, as he was able to capture the moments flawlessly.
