Fantastic and interesting day! Mohsen our guide was very friendly and easy to ask questions about Egyptian life in the present and in the past. He helped capture some amazing photos of us both which was above and beyond what I would ever expect from a guide! Very knowledgeable in his guide and for any questions we asked. Lots of stops but never felt rushed. Mohamed was a brilliant driver, we felt very safe and he tried to keep us as cool as possible in the 40-48°C heat by keeping the car parked in the shade whilst we were in doing our tours. Lunch was lovely and we could choose our time.

Our tour was very nice. Kholud is a very well prepared tour guide and her Spanish is almost perfect. He knows very well the topics he talks about and takes his time to answer your questions. On the other hand I guess we didn't have much contact with our driver Ramy due to the language, but he was very polite and efficient. With the program everything worked perfectly, we saw everything we needed to see. The included restaurant food was delicious, we loved the Buffet they offered. The car was clean and always with the air conditioning on, ready to greet us after each stop. The only "but" we had was the insistence of taking us to see other places like the Papyrus Museum, which is outside the program (we didn't know if it had an additional cost). It was kind of awkward having to decline the offer more than 2 times. Outside of that, the tour operator and their guides are recommended. Thanks for your attention!!

I can confirm that we had one of the best days of our lives. In Egypt for 1 week, we decided to come to Cairo and visit the pyramids. We came across THE elusive, imperturbable, admirable, unbeatable GUIDE, and so on. His name is Nasser El Khattib. With a great French and a great culture on Egypt and in general. He was a great help and very attentive to our expectations. We love photos and took a lot of time to take them. The small visits they offer us in stores are not for the sole purpose of buying, it remains an option and that's great! It was an amazing day with my friend. She will forever be etched in our memories! Nasser is incredibly kind, and in such a good mood. We have not seen the past day. A thank you also to his driver Fares!! Very discreet but very professional! We recommend without hesitation
