It was all perfectly organized from the pick-up to all the sights. Sayed Mahmoud was an excellent guide who really knew what I wanted and never pushed anything on me. we skipped the Papyrus museum because I didn't want to go there and that was no problem. He asked, while other tours just bring you there. It was all very relaxed and easy going. Excellent fit for me.

We had a great visit to the pyramids! Mohamed Hamed, our tour guide, was able to answer all questions and made sure that our visit went smoothly, from visiting the great pyramid to the path our camel guide was supposed to take. He understands fun too :) His English was excellent and he really knows everything about the site. And thanks to the air-conditioned car, the long journeys weren't a problem. Collection went well, of course. Recommended at any time. Without a guide I would not visit the pyramids, because otherwise you will be besieged by sellers and there is no information board etc.

My tour guide was Mohamed Hamed with Mekawy as driver. The trip exceeded expectations. Mohamed is very professional: he speaks perfect English and has in-depth knowledge in Egyptology. But what was even more important for me as a solo traveler, Mohamed was also a great companion. In addition to showing all the highlights and giving background knowledge we also had phylosophical discussions related to Egypt. Since he know that I am open to experience the local people and culture, I was invited to have a tea + snacks with his friends who work at the pyramid complex. Overall, instead of being another tourist who came to take pictures of the pyramids it was more like having a trip with a local friend and spending good time. I am not sure about the other guides at this company but with Mohamed a great trip is guaranteed.
