One of my favourite experiences ever. Ahmed was simply the best tour guide! Really got to see the best of this tourist attraction, didn't have to queue, and he took the best photos. I travelled alone, and felt completely safe, and had a fun day out! We even had traditional food :) Will book this tour again when i bring my family to egypt!

Our guide, Salwa Karmey and our driver made the trip really comfortable. We were picked up on the address as arranged. We got some of the history about the pyramids on the way out there and everything was just perfectly planned. There was time for pictures and the camel riding was so funny!! We had a good trip and happy to see this wonder of the world.

My tour guide was Sam. He was a very knowledgeable Egyptologist and very personable. He knows his Egyptian history! I travelled solo I felt very comfortable and safe. He went out of the way to make my stay in Egypt at good one. Even followed up when I had issues with my hotel room. And he takes wonderful pictures! I would definitely use this tour company and Sam again. Overall 5 stars!

This is my third time in Egypt but I never get tired of looking and be amazed of the great accomplishment of men. Perfect engineering and a wonder of how it's been constructed without the aid of modern technology. The guide Michael is very knowledgeable and patient to us.

Ahmad is an expert in egypt history and more than willing to educate. We were driven in an air conditioned car all around. They went above and beyond with their generosity of time, knowledge, and friendship. The camel ride was pre-arranged, so there was no wait. They even took us to a local restaurant, explained the cuisine, and ate lunch with us. Definitely made you feel like friends. We were also driven to a government-run place where we were shown how papyrus paper is made. highly recommend this tour!

This was the best tour we could have chosen for our first day in Egypt! We were greeted by our very kind and professional guide Mona from Let's Explore Egypt! and began our day driving to the Giza Necropolis. We toured the temples and pyramids complete with background history and context of the tombs. Then we moved to the area where we gained a breathtaking vantage of the pyramids on camelback. We returned and departed the site for lunch at a restaurant where we enjoyed a fixed menu authentic Egyptian lunch - locals were eating alongside us! Then we moved to some local shops to end the half day with drop off back at our hotel. The day was made easy by our guide and our driver. Thank you to Mona and Let's Explore Egypt!

Outstanding! Fatimas company came highly recommended, but I still had my doubts that I would get a competent and courteous guide. Fatima exceeded my expectations! Educated as an Egyptologist, she is thoroughly knowledgeable and intellectually honest, yet insatiably curious and willing to learn. She has excellent language skills, a delightful sense of humor, and a personal manner that put me at ease in this new culture. Unlike many tour guides Ive had, Fatima is not filling in on her way to something else but fulfilling her lifelong career dream. She and Sasa, her driver, customized my tour to take in all the sights I wanted to see and nothing I didnt -- all while traveling in Sasas clean, luxurious, air-conditioned car. Of course the artifacts of the Egyptian Museum are as remarkable as youve heard, but you will be unimpressed with the outdated manner in which they are displayed unless the new modern museum is open by the time you go. Its obvious Fatima is well known and respected by her fellow guides, the museum personnel, and Giza security guards. Fatima knew all the ropes, which allowed us to avoid many of the lines and crowds. At Giza, the incredible afternoon heat didnt spoil the thrill of the pyramids. Meanwhile, Fatima shooed away the pesky junk-hawkers and negotiated to get me the least-stinky camel to ride. Fatima is a faithful representative of her Muslim heritage, explaining many Egyptian customs and beliefs. But she also knew a lot about the history of my Christian faith and showed great respect for my convictions. All told my private tour was a delightful surprise! And I cant believe how little I paid for this kind of customized, one-on-one treatment! That meant I had enough money left to tip Fatima appropriately for her impeccable professionalism and gracious friendship. -- Greg Warner, Florida USA

Great tour - we had Mona helping us around and guiding us. She is excellent. Would highly recommend it. Very knowledgeable. She was flexible and changed the tour as we wanted as we had two kids with us. We went to Giza and Saqarra - also went to the spirits shop as well as the papyryus store. Kids enjoyed the camel ride. Would highly recommend it

First off i have to say that I'm so glad I booked a tour guide. I was going to go it along and try to read about the history on my own, but after meeting my guide Heba and all the knowledge she provided, I would certaintly recommend hiring a guide. You could tell that she lived and breath Egyptian history. To say Heba was incredible would be an understatement. She was out of this world...and went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of. She started messaging me the day prior and basically introduced her self. The communication was easy and I felt like I was with a friend of many years. She picked me up right on time and helped me in the air conditioned car. I did not eat breakfast and she took me to get breakfast and coffee even though it wasn't included. :- Also, being that I was switching hotels, she offered that I store my luggage at the Baazar, as she knows the owner, and it turned out to be very convenient! She was full of energy and so thoughtful about everything. She knew all the cool spots to take photos. Some of the photos i have, you would think I was the only one at the pyramids. I'm not sure how many guides this company has...but if you could request Heba, I would highly recommend it. I wish I could have her as my guide in Luxor when i go tomorrow. I see why everyone raves about her online. One last important note: Heba is sort of like a celebrity. Everywhere we went some knew her and they had to say hello. She is well respected in Egypt, so know that you're in good hands if you get lucky enough to get her.

Mawan our tour guide was wonderful along with being knowledgeable and punctual The tour was Fabulous recommend bringing your own guide to the Giza keeps all others away. and you can concentrate on absorbing the historical information. The transportation was top notch . We highly recommend this tour it is half day wish it was longer but worth the price. The people of Cairo were welcoming and extremely friendly The food was great too it is safe to travel to Cairo

My tour started when I was picked up at my hotel. They were right on time despite my difficult location and no hotel sign. My tour guide, Samah, was excellent. She was very knowledgable about the pyramids and Egyptian history in general. She had good recommendations and knew the area well. The driver didn't say much, but drove well in difficult traffic. They took care of me and served up a meal on the way home. Very professional, I highly recommend Samah for a pyramid tour.

During my time in Egypt I took a private tour to the Pyramids, Sphinx and Camel ride! I was so fortunate to have Zenab as my guide and Mohamad as my driver, both of them were professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was nothing short of amazing and it was all of my dreams come true. I had just enough time at each of the stops, Zenab was so thoughtful, caring and made sure I knew exactly what was going to happen at each stop as well as guide me on how much money to tip if I wanted on the camel ride and the for the people taking pictures so you know your not being taken advantage of. We stopped and had a nice Egyptian lunch as well as stop at the perfume store and painting shop which was so interesting. During lunch Zenab sat with me and we had lots of conversation and it was lovely to get to know her she is such a sweet lady and asset to the company. I took this tour on my first day in Egypt and I felt safe and well looked after, it was a great introduction to the Country. You do not need to have any doubts you have to book this tour!

Recommend if you want to see the most popular pyramids and ride a camel. Good to see with a guide if its your first time. Just say no thank you to the vendors and avoid eye contact if you aren't a shopper. This was our 2nd visit to the Giza pyramids and we learned some new history about them. Our first visit was with a tour of 15 and we would have ideally liked to spend more time there so we went back for another look. Guide Ashraf Zachary was great

Wonderful experience made even better by our excellent guide who knew so much and answered all our questions. Felt totally secure throughout the day but also felt we were treated as individuals. Although entering the great Pyramid was extra, it was well worth it for this once in a lifetime visit.

Our group had an amazing day with our tour guide, Khaled and our driver Salah! Khaled is fluent in English, has a great sense of humor and is extremely knowledgeable about Egypt's history and present day culture. We were able to extend our half a day trip by a few hours and he showed us some great areas and stores that we would have never found on our own! We felt secure during our trip, and it is clear that Khaled has established relationships with vendors and groups throughout the city, We felt safe at each stop and were greeted warmly everywhere we went. Bring money for tipping!
