The whole trip was amazing, but the only thing is it’s too long. We spent the morning in the pyramids which was amazing and the tour guide was really good!! However after that, we went to a perfume shop & paper cutting thing which was boring. However, on the bright side I got some amazing pictures and created lifetime memories. Thank you x

we loved it!!! Moshira our guide was amazing!! What an intelligent, kind woman, super informed about everything!! He helped us haggle the price in the shops and answered absolutely all our questions, I should have given him a good tip, I feel guilty now!! BUT WE ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND GOING WITH HER!!!

We really enjoyed the whole trip, seeing the pyramids was an unforgettable experience and the guide was very friendly and knowledgable. We would have preferred to have spent more time though at the pyramids instead of going to the tourist traps such as fragrance and papyrus shops.

my partner and I had a grand time with Randa and her driver... highly recommend for this tour and beautiful pictures

My driver really looked after me and made sure that I was happy would recommend
