Fantastic layover trip!

What a fantastic experience. I was nervous about doing a trip during a 7 hour layover but it was a dream of mine to see the Pyramids and the Sphinx.

The pickup at the airport was seamless, the guide was thorough and a licensed Egyptologist. The views were breathtaking and the experienced guide was helpful with street vendors and answered all questions.

I would recommend this tour for anyone that has a long layover in Cairo! Oh, and the camel ride through the desert to visit the Sphinx was unbelievable!
Great way to spend a long layover in Cairo

If you have a long layover in Cairo, this tour is a fantastic way to see the pyramids, ride a camel, see how papyrus is made and much more. Tour guide Hamdy was knowledgeable, friendly and generous with endless photo requests. Driver Moaz was fantastic and made the trip smooth and comfortable. My layover was 12 hours so the tour director Hesham also arranged a Nile cruise. Gorgeous sunset on the water and an unforgettable view of Cairo and Giza.

My adventure through Cairo with Abla Saif was very fun! We explored the pyramids and the Saladin Al ayubi citadel. I learnt a lot about Egyptian history! Thank you for the great experience.
5 star service and excellent knowledge.

I have just finished a personal tour of the pyramids at Giza with my driver, Assem and my guide, Ehab. This was five star from the moment Assem picked me up at the airport through the detailed knowledge Ehab shared with me about the history of Egypt’s pyramids and Sphinx.

I wanted for nothing - every ticket was paid for, they answered all my questions about the culture so I could interact with people in a respectful way - they were a dream team.

100% request these two when you book your tour here.
