amazing pyramids
Nov 2021 • Couples
We had an enjoyable time on this tour, our guide was informative and interesting, the sites were amazing. Bring some extra cash for tips and the Nile boat trip, take water with you, it is hot. The bus journey is long, but seeing the pyramids is worth it.

Good trip overall but long journey
The trip overall was good and the communication from the company good.The tour guide was very good too.
The only glitches to note was that the trip was 26 hours not 16. This was mainly due to stop points. (Hopefully will improve although should be reflected in the listing).
It took 10 hours to get to Cairo with only one 10 min stop.
There was also 2 sales stops ( the paper place and oils place) which extended the trip and either think these should have been in the itenary or given people a choice as I think that the last place (oils place) people would have opted not to go and get back at a more reasonable time.
Our day consisted of over 2 hours in the oils place and only 1 hour at the pyramids which was the fundamental purpose of the tour.
Overall good value, good communication from the company. Hopefully the points are considered as I would still recommend.

I booked 4 trips (Sindbad Submarine, Safari ATV and 2 private: Cairo and Luxor). All were well organized and with a program that included the main objectives. Very kind and always attentive to details to be to the liking of customers. Permanent communication. Our group of 15 people received unbeatable offers compared to other agencies.

Interessting trip
Feb 2020 • Friends
It was a really great trip, I did not enjoy a trip like it before. Everyone was very cooperating with us by the guide and the driver and before that cooperated via the internet where they were communicated quickly, we were very impressed by the pyramids and the weather in Egypt, a journey like that really deserves suffering, I advise everyone to try it

So, we decided to look around the internet and see if we could find a good operator for this trip and we found this one. Because we weren't entirely sure what to do, how to book etc. we decided to send a WhatsApp message. Pretty quickly someone responded and sent us the costs and everything. Sounded pretty good so we confirmed the booking. After that we were told what time we'd be picked up and everything.

So, at the day of the tour we got picked up by car and he drove us to the bus. The chairs were pretty comfortable, so we could catch some sleep (we got picked up at 1.45 AM). It was a six hour drive so we did stop somewhere on the way to stretch the legs, go to the bathroom, have a drink... When we almost arrived at our destination someone walked up to us, we hadn't seen him on the bus but apparently he hopped on somewhere on the road. He was our tour guide, Tharwat.

Tharwat explained to us how everything worked, what we were gonna do and we started at the Egyptian Museum. We were kinda lucky because we were the only two doing the tour in English. So that meant: a private tour guide. Tharwat was amazing, he spoke very clearly and explained so much about everything in the museum.

After the museum we went on with the program. There was an optional river cruise on the Nile, he advised us to go along. It was a hot day and on the boat you'd get some fresh air from the wind and something to drink as well. We made some beautiful pictures and even Tharwat made some nice pictures of us together. After the river cruise we went for lunch. This was very great and delicious too. It was an open buffet, so you could eat anything you wanted. The lunch was included, but the drinks weren't. Which wasn't a problem at all.

I'm not exactly sure what we did in which order, but we also went to the Papyrus Institute. Here they made the original papyrus paintings and everything. We got ourselves some nice souvenirs here. Then we went to the pyramids and that was really amazing.

Tharwat telling us about the history of the pyramids, also advising us to do the camel trip. So, of course we did! We both rode on a camel, seperately, to the point from where you could see all 9 pyramids. There we took some pictures and they turned out really great. After the pyramids we also went to see the great Mr Sphinx. Here we took some more pictures and Tharwat also made some pictures for us. And I think that that was the end of our program.

We really had an amazing time in Cairo. Tharwat was the best tour guide we could wish for. If we were to rate him out of 10, he'd get 20. I'm not exaggerating, but this was a really good day for us. Definitely recommending this one!
