A great experience if you want to see the pyramids and not worry about anything. Omar was great, and drive was smooth. Would recommend.
Excellent day trip with the Mahmouds team
Mahmoud, the guide, was very interesting with lots of stories and very good explanations abou Ancient Egypt. the kings, the pharaohs, the everyday life. Always available to answer my many questions. He speaks perfect english.
Mahmoud, the driver, was very efficient in getting around on these silly streets. I felt very safe and the vehicle was pristine inside and out, with A/C.
And I really appreciated that we focused on our program, without trying to pressure me into going to a whatever store or other tourist trap.
Thank you very much for that day
Fantastic guide, driver, and tour!
Mahmoud Badr and his driver Walid provided me with a perfect tour of sites I’ve dreamed of visiting my entire life. They picked me up from the hotel, and proceeded to guide me through all aspects of the tour, exactly as described. Mahmoud is knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptology, and was able to answer all my questions; and I had hundreds of them! Mahmoud’s enthusiasm made an incredible tour forever unforgettable. Mahmoud not only was engaging while we were visiting the pyramids and the sites, but while driving between destinations, he was explaining Egyptian history; he truly loves his work. Walid is a fantastic driver, and I always felt safe in his vehicle. When you are booking your tour, request Mahmoud and Walid. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing tour of Sakkara Dahshur and Memphis
Excellent private tour by Mahmoud today to Sakkara, Dahshur and Memphis. Arrived on time and expertly driven by Walid in a comfortable vehicle with air conditioning.
Mahmoud told the facts enthusiastically, and although we had good knowledge of the sites, he gave us many new facts that we did not know. He took the day at our pace, and when we added on the Serrapeum and temple of Unas, had plenty of facts and stories ready to go. He really bought Memphis to life with excellent story telling, and was genuinely interested in our enjoyment, and he regularly check whether the pace was too fast or slow.
Really, and excellent choice for the day, we really enjoyed it!
Great trip, Would recommend
