The tour was super fun and meaningful since my wonderful tour guide Mohamed tells me very detailed stories about the place. It was such an amazing experience to get a glimpse of Egypt’s history and culture. I was very hesitant at first because I’m a solo female traveler in a foreign land. But Mohamed and our driver was very trustworthy and respectful and I highly recommend this to tourists visiting Egypt.

Shawky es un excelente guía, muy conocedor de la historia egipcia y entretenido. Nos llevó a los principales puntos de interés y a los mejores lugares para tomar fotografías. El carro en el que nos transportaron era nuevo, casi recién salido del concesionario, por lo que fue muy cómodo y limpio. ¡Gracias!

Amazing experience to learn about the history of the pyramids. Aymen el Gabri the guide was great! Did not feel rushed, answered all our questions, and was very polite. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. We can't forget the driver Abd el Aziem, first impression, the smile and happiness as he welcomed us, opened the door for us after every stop. Great hospitality also Gamal from operations was helpful and made it possible for us to have a lovely trip by keeping us informed and organising all the bookings. Great team work and communication
