I booked this with hours notice and Maged was so kind to accomodate and even allow us to add to our group. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about his work. Everything went amazingly well. Could not recommend him enough!
The best way to see the pyramids!

This half day tour was everything we needed when visiting the pyramids! Maged is very professional, polite and an excellent guide. He organized everything with less than a day of notice, and all worked out great! He is also an excellent photographer, and the tour was adapted to all our needs and requests.

We were picked up in a car with AC, very comfortable, and were provided cold water. When getting tickets he even gave us advice on which pyramids to visit or not. Inside the venue, he took us to the important spots, including the panorama, the pyramids, the sphynx and some tombs, and gave us explanations of the history, while taking great pictures! Afterwards, we were driven back to the hotel. The same driver stayed with us all the time, which really helped to alleviate the heat in-between places.

We fully recommend the tour and Maged as a guide. It was a stress-free experience and it was clear how knowledgeable he was about the history of the pyramids and ancient Egypt.
Amazing tour !! Good price !!

Did you know the pyramids was made out of limestone?yup its not sand or rocks ! If you book this tour you will definitely learn more about the pyramids and their mysteries !

My experience:
I texted him pretty late and he answered right away and was already giving me all the information that I needed to know. Furthermore, he was right on time for pick up, he’s patient (we had so many questions), knowledgeable and SUPER nice ! We also stopped for souvenirs. Even if it was a hot day, he made sure we stayed hydrated (thank you). For the price and this 5* tour you wont be disappointed!!!!

Thank you again to you and your team for this warm welcoming !! We definitely loved our day and left Egypt with great memories :) !!!

Extraordinary tour!

We had a terrific experience during the tour of the pyramids! Our guide Wael made the day. He was very knowledgeable about ancient Egyptian culture. He was patient and friendly and knew the best spots and poses for some great pictures. We had the camel ride included, which was a fun addition and the camels looked healthy and relaxed. Wael not only knows about ancient history but also keeps up with your county’s World Cup match results! All together very good time, would recommend when visiting the pyramids in Giza (Caïro).
