    Visiting the pyramids is a once in a lifetime experience. Trying to enter the park on your own can be stressful and possibly ruin the moment. Therefore, going with a private tour while is more costly ensures your peace and safety during the trip. Our guide Ali, was sharp and on time, had good knowledge of the history, took great pictures, and ensured our safety at the park. Pickup and drop off right from our hotel was great as well.

    Our guide Mohamed Hamed was knowledgeable and excellent. We explained to him that this was not our first visit to the pyramids, having been here 20 years ago, we wanted an overview and take some photos. He respected our request and whilst he gave us a brief history, added to the experience by relating anecdotes about the area, it's people and other details that one would only learn from a local. It's a short tour of the pyramids and syphnx, good for anyone who has limited time and wants a good overview.

    Mahmoud was a best tour guide for Pyramid tour! He was fun, we could make joke each other, made us feel comfortable. He could answer our any questions, full of acknowledges, very good at taking pictures that we didn’t need to worry about taking photos at the most famous place in the world. He bought us juice because I asked, introduced good local restaurants, he even cross the street together to go restaurants because crossing could be dangerous. Thanks Mahmoud! You made us a good memory and we felt lucky to meet you :)
