We enjoyed our tour very much. Especially accompanied by the tour guide, Mr. Majid Al-Behairi from Gem Explor, he was very friendly and really helpful, we enjoyed a lot of unique and useful information, historical about the pharaonic civilization and he helped us with everything we needed even by taking pictures for us, and enjoying camel rides and food, also with the shopping. He gave us a lot of valuable information about the history and about every site we visited. We learned a lot and had a great time. We highly recommend this tour!
Outstanding Guide, Outstanding tour

Gem Explore (leaded by Mr. Maged) is the best thing that happened to us during our visit to Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara (Cairo). Mr. Maged is extremely knowledgeable and concerned about the guests. Constantly willing to run the extra mile for making the experience extra special. If you visit Egypt, our advice is to make Gem Explore your first choice.
Awesome guide, awesome trip

We booked this tour on viator and it was one of the best decision we have made in our Egypt trip.
At the pyramids, Maged knew the secret spots to get away from the crowded areas, while not missing out on anything important and interesting.
Instead of just telling us information, Maged presents them in stories and his story telling skills made the whole trip very informative and captivating.
Saqqara is a trip not to be missed. It’s less crowded than the grand pyramids, but so much more to see!
The whole day was very well organized, and Maged took care of us very well!

Ali was an exceptional guide throughout the tour. He gave us numerous tips, like things to avoid during the visit, what made our experience even better. He told us the fascinating history and a lot of facts behind every monument we visited. He also gave us a plenty of time to take photos.

The whole tour was great! We had a plan change just before we started because of a personal problem of our tour guide but that made the tour better! We got to meet our driver and tour guide Wael who, apart from being an excellent tour guide, is a great person! He made our tour great with his knowledge, advices about thing in Egypt and the tour and hospitality. We couldn’t be more lucky in choosing this company and Wael as a tour guide. 100% recommended!!
