Absolutely worth the money! Pick up from hotel on time, smooth transfer to the airport and quick flight ✈️ Everyone was sleeping during flight. My guide Mohamed waited outside the airport and led me to the mini bus. He was very nice and positive person. Firstly, nice walk through the old market awaiting The Pyramids to open. You don’t have to carry your backpack as our bus was always near. You wait about 5 minutes for guides to collect tickets, no queues. Few hours for pyramids so you have plenty of time to take photos. Our guide was with me and my kids all the time and was sooo kind taking photos, helping to take the best shots! Telling us how to pose to have the best images. After that, we went to perfume shop, had tea ☕️ and a little talk about their natural oils. Then, we went for lunch to a buffet style restaurant which had plenty of space and their food was really good. Next, Egyptian Museum, it is a MUST! Mohamed is really an excellent guide and has a broad knowledge *****

Solosh was an ideal guide. He was impressively well educated and knowledgeable and took care to explain what we were seeing. He was friendly and when we asked to see a particular type of factory, he managed to arrange it. We really enjoyed the tour and his insights. The driver was always meeting us exactly at the right time; we never had to wait or walk particularly far. I would thoroughly recommend doing this tour with Solosh and Ocean Travel (the company subcontracted). The sights we saw are of course a must for anyone visiting Cairo. This was my second time here and it was far better seeing things wirh a guide than without.

It was a once in a lifetime experience, thanks to our guide Solosh and our driver Rami. They made this day so special for us, it couldn’t have any better. All our wishes were granted, we got so much background information about the culture, explained in a very entertaining way with a great storyline. Thank you Solosh and Rami, we will never forget this day and also we will never forget you.

It was really a great day. Very good organization and process. Ramadan was a great guide! You have to see the pyramids once in a lifetime! Thanks again to everyone involved for an unforgettable day!

Ooo the bikes were amazing.My guide was very accommodating and personal which made the experience unique .He ensured my safety and continually check to be sure I was having a good time.
