Fantastic local tour guide.
Tim W, 19-09-2022
I had a fantastic time. Maged is professional, articulate, passionate and knowledgeable. I was attracted to his tour of Giza, Saqqara and Dashur because I wanted to maximise my limited time in Cairo to experience the most I could from the ancient archeological sites. Maged was attentive to my interests and used his extensive knowledge of the area to ensure I had a great time. I put my trust in him and it paid off as he took me to some often overlooked tombs in Giza which turned out to be some of the most spectacular of the tour. He has a real passion for ensuring that people have a great experience and I enjoyed his company. I highly recommend Maged to anyone looking for an immersive, insightful and fun tour of ancient Egyptian history.
We had a great day with Magid (Gem Tours) who took us on an excellent tour of the three main pyramid sites.

We had a great day with Magid who took us on an excellent tour of the three main pyramid sites of Giza, Saqqa and Darshur. Magid’s English was excellent and his descriptions lively and interesting. He also went out of his way to help us on our way after the tour should have finished, extending the tour beyond its finish time, and we highly recommend him and his company, Gem Tours for any of your planned trips in Egypt.
An amazing personalised trip

We have just had an amazing day with Maged & Wahil (sorry if these spellings are in correct) The trip was personalised including extending it later so that Maged could take us & help us get our overnight train.
We saw many pyramids with great background info in perfect English.
A wonderful lunch and lots of memories
Very good.

We loved our tour guide. He made sure we were always confortable during the tour. He shared a lot of his knowledge on the pyramids and was really friendly with us.

He stopped a few times while we were on the road to offer us drinks/water and the lunch he booked us was excellent as well.

Thank you Mageb and the driver!
Perfect day tour in Cairo

Just the perfect tour.

First of all, Mageb was very helpful preparing us for the experience. Before leaving for Egypt my friend and I had questions regarding the culture and what to bring and he made sure we would have everything. He kept a clear and quick communication with us which made us feel safe.

He promised us a tour that we would not forget and he was right. Everything was perfect. Our driver was super nice and his driving was good and safe (which driving in Cairo can sometimes shock foreigners).

We saw the classic Gizeh pyramid, Saqqarah and Dashour, but honestly we saw way more then that. The knowledge Mageb have is incredible. He knows where to go to not have to many tourists, we saw the inside of a Pyramid, some hieroglyph and way more.

Lunch was very good and during the day he stopped a few times to buy us drinks and water and made sure we were good.

He is going above and beyond for his costumers.

I would gladly recommend his tours to anyone!
We were so amaze with the quality of his tour that we book another one with him tomorrow!
