Excellent Private tour with flexibility to spend as much time where you want
Pheobe was our guide. She was really nice. She was informative, helpful, understanding, accommodating with fluent english. Excellent communication.
It was really nice to have a private tour guide, it helped us spend as much time where we wanted. Really do whatever we wanted, that was great.
Our driver was great as well. Quick. Had a nice car, drove well in traffic.
Touring the pyramids
Michael and the driver were amazing. He was so patient and good with our 4 year old. He gave us lots of tips and shared with us a lot of history.
A highly fulfilling experience - and a day well spent !
Had a meeting to attend in Hurghada and thought ( since I had to fly in from Cairo anyway ) that I'd take a day and soak in the sights of the Giza Pyramids, Sphinx and visit the famed Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. Booking and confirmation was done and received promptly online - along with clear instructions.
Now, I wasn't sure if by 'private', I'd be expected to share the day with other tourists ( since I'd encountered tours on previous trips to other countries where 'private' meant being in a small group' ) but I was thrilled to learn that I would indeed have the services of the guide and driver all to myself for the entire 8-hour duration.
My guide ( Fatima ) and driver ( Ibrahim ) were the perfect company - they turned up on time ( actually early ) and had the most effervescent personalities to cheer up my morning. Fatima is truly a gem - she's articulate, funny, extremely knowledgeable and ( as a bonus ) super proficient at helping me take photos. I travel alone most of the time alone and since I do not subscribe to nor have the photo-taking skills of a 'social media influencer', I don't often end up with many nice picture memories of myself - just a whole lot of shaky selfies and photos of what I saw and where I've been. However, Fatima assisted ( more like directed haha ) with many photo opportunities whilst on the tour and gee, she's really good at it. She knew all the right spots, angles, etc and for once, I can truly enjoy the tours and experience the sights without having to worry about taking pictures of myself.
The sights were indeed breathtaking - the Pyramids were awe-inspiring and the tour of the Museum most educational. There wasn't a whole lot to see at the Bazaar though ( perhaps it's the time of the day ) but since I wasn't big on shopping for curios and souvenirs, that suited me perfectly fine.
There will of course be attempts made to have you drop by at 1 - 2 shops to 'experience local products' but a polite decline from my end was all it took for me to side-step that process.
The day started with me thinking " Gee, 8 hours is a long time to spend touring" but both Fatima and Ibrahim made it felt like a breeze and at the end of the day, I felt I've made two new friends and had a productive and wonderful day spent in Cairo.
Great tour of pyramids, Sphinx, museum, etc in Cairo
Our excellent guide Shah - she of the snappy camera angles - gave us a great day out going round all the key sights. She was knowledgeable, flexible and spoke great English, All in all recommended.
Bucket list ticked.
Excellent guide Zenab and driver Hosn provided an organized and smooth day. I recommend them 100%. The transport was modern and spotless. You get a lot done on this tour and it is all worthwhile. We especially loved the camel ride and taking photos at the pyramids, but the mummies and treasures at the museum are also something I will never forget.
