Dream Experience w/ a great tour guide
J1341WHmelissah, 25-10-2019
This tour was amazing. Seeing the pyramids and getting to go inside was a dream come true. Ibrahim was our tour guide for the second time on our trip and we were so happy about that. He is the best guide we had while in Egypt. He explained so much history and while driving to Dahshur and Saqqara explained the modern life in Egyptian villages. He took so many great pictures for us as well. We ran a little over our time but he did not act rushed or bothered by this at all. The company uses WhatsApp for communication, which is common in Egypt, and they were great and timely. I definitely recommend this tour company and to ask for Ibrahim as your tour guide. He is friendly, funny, laid back, and seems genuinely passionate about his job. You won't be disappointed!
Great company to tour with!! EXCELLENT

Pyramids Day-Tour
pagriffin9, 12-02-2020
We had an excellent day exploring the pyramids. Our guide was great. He was highly professional and taught us a lot. We could not have been happier with him.

We did feel slightly rushed at each of the stops. This was probably due to the number of sites and distance covered in the allotted time for the tour. We barely stopped at the Sphinx and only saw it from the road.

We would recommend skipping the camel ride unless you really want to do it. Even though the itinerary lists a 30 minute camel ride, ours only lasted about five minutes. The camel handler was very uninterested, took some terrible pictures, and then asked for a big tip from each of us. In hindsight we wish we spent those few minutes elsewhere.

We did take the time to go inside the Great Pyramid and the Red Pyramid and enjoyed both of them. The Red Pyramid especially takes some physical endurance maneuvering through the narrow passageway, but we felt like it added to the adventure.

We do highly recommend this tour as a way to see the pyramids and learn a lot of history. However, if you want to have the time to wander around and thoroughly explore the sites, this might not be the best tour for you.
Amazing trip
Mitra7, 03-11-2019
This tour was amazing. We had the pleasure of having Fatima as our main tour guide, and Khalifa and Mahmood to accompany us in the evening of each day, all were great individuals.
Fatima was great, always on time, very knowledgeable, friendly with a great sense of humor. She was very flexible and changed the itinerary per our request a little to accommodate the additional mosque we wanted to see in Cairo and additional time we wanted to spend in Bazar. We had great conversations along the way from one site to the other which made even long distance driving in traffic pleasant. The driver was extremely patient and skillfull with navigating the traffic.
Khalifeh showed us a restaurant with really good Koshari (Egyptian traditional food) and Mahmood took us to a coffee shop near Nile for a pleasant tea and sweet at the end of a very long day sightseeing.
Overal, highly recommend this tour and all the awesome guides.
Fantastic Tour by Ashraf & Tree of Life
ODT9, 23-05-2019
The trip exceeded all of our expectations. We were picked up 8am sharp from our hotel and right from the start Ashraf made us feel welcome and very comfortable. We had our tour around the Pyramids, Sphinx (including a camel ride), Saqqara (Step Pyramid & Tombs) and then had lunch with Ashraf before being taken back to our hotel. The tour was perfect, and Ashraf is a genuinely fantastic tour guide and a brilliant person. I can't recommend Tree of Life Tours more, and if you're booking, try and ask for Ashraf Zakhary specifically, I promise you won't be disappointed!
