Highly recommended! I have found the “Camel Ride and Quad Biking combo tour around the pyramids” on here. But i also customized it to give me some time to go inside the big pyramid, the operator was very helpful to accommodate my request. My tour guide “Omar Mataro” has been very helpful and knowledgeable, he advised me what’s the best way to structure my tour, starting with the pyramid, then the camel ride, then the quad bikes. He picked me up on time at 7:00am, and drove me to Giza, we arrived at 8:00am, i went inside Khofo pyramid, i was the only one there - because its early. Then we went to the camels, and they put me on a camel and took me to the panoramic view, the boy who was holding the camel was helpful to takes photos of me. On the way to the quad bikes Omar stopped me close to the sphinx and took many photos of me. Then we went to the quad bikes station, where they gave me my own quad bike, they took another quad bike and we went to the desert to view the pyramids f
This is a fantastic tour. You get to visit pyramids at Giza, Dahshur and Saqqara and understand their connections. It’s a bit of a long day but worth it. The tour guide on the other hand not so great. The information on the tour is very specific: you go to 3 sights to visit pyramids but she kept trying to push other places and making it sound as if they were also tours but they were just shops (makes me wonder if she has a deal with them). If the guide offers to take you to a papyrus institute, aromatic oil shop or a hieroglyph necklace shop, say NO cause they will take time from your visit to one of the sights (it happened to me, I was rushed at one of the pyramids). Other than that, great day - I was the only one that booked the shared tour on that day so in the end I had a private tour.
My wife & I booked a private tour through the "Get Your Guide" app. We were lucky enough to be assigned Ahmed Elsayed. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, well spoken and passionate about his job. If you book a tour, I recommend that you specifically request Ahmed Elsayed. Highlights of the Cairo tour included riding camels at the second viewing point at the pyramids where all three are in view. In addition, the museum was filled with extremely impressive artifacts. We actually ended up booking a second tour with Ahmed Elsayed two days later to Alexandria. On that tour we visited the Kim al-Shoqafa, Pompey's Pillar, Qaitbay Citadel, the Alexandria Library and had a lovely meal on the waterfront.
Perfect tour! Tour guide Mr. Maged was incredible, very passionate and informative. He told us so many important information that we couldn't find it anywhere. He was very attentive to details. Very proffesional and helpful! The driver Mr. Mohammed was fluent in English, very kind & helpful aswell. Perfect communication with the all the staff members via What's Up. Next day we get a tour to Cairo museum which was wonderful aswell. Definetely recommend this company to everyone! Hope to come back again one day and see you guys! Greeting from Lithuania!
This was the most fun I’ve had riding a Quad and the camels in the desert. the view was phenomenal The tour guide (our friend ) Fares was very accommodating and he made sure we had the experience of a lifetime; made us feel at home . Unforgettable memories
