Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is the name of the plot of land that supports the Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza. It's a broad area so with lots of space to accommodate the crowds you will surely see. Lots of good places to get the perfect photos. And lots of merchants who want to see you things, and they are aggressive.

    This area of Dahshur is surely the earliest true pyramids. Both the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid are not to be missed. It gives you the peaceful feeling with much less people than the circus in Giza!

    Seeing the statue of Rameses II was impressive. Hearing the stories of how and swhen it was discovered, how they moved it, the stories about Rameses... I loved it.

    Part of the Giza complex of pyramids and the Great Sphinx. Come with a guide who can explain to you the history and engineering and place these incredible structures within the scope of ancient Egypt.

    We ( a party of five) booked a two-day trip to Fayoum with Travitell Egypt, at the capable hands of Mr. Ashraf Kamal Sadek.
    We were picked up from our home in Obur (a north-eastern suburb of Cairo) and driven by Sameh, a quiet and reliable driver, in his small van to our hotel in Tunis Village, Fayoum (Hotel Pyramids), which was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.
    After checking in and a small snack, we were picked by another driver (Mukhtar) in his sturdy, air-conditioned Toyota Landcruiser all-wheel SUV for a wonderful afternoon trip to the pottery shops in Tunis Village, followed by a desert safari trip that took us to the waterfalls of Wadi El Rayan, connecting the First, Second, and Third Lakes. We visited the Round Mountain (Gabel El Mudawar), and even hiked up to one of its peaks. We then did some sand boarding down the slopes of impressive dunes, and ended the trip at the banks of the Magic Lake where we admired the sun set enjoying tea prepared by Mukhtar together with fresh fruits. We then had a wonderful dinner of grilled lamb and chicken, oriental rice, and French fries. After some star gazing, we returned to our hotel around 10:30pm.
    Next morning, we were picked up at the hotel at 8:30 am for a morning trip dedicated to the "Valley of the Whales" (Wadi El Hitan), a fascinating UNESCO -designated World Herritage Site about 75 minutes drive from our hotel, deep in the Western Desert. We spent about two hours there, admiring the amazing pre-historic whale fossils and surrounding desert landscape. The dome-shaped museum on the site is a jewel. Visitors watch an introductory 15-minute film that explains the importance of the site, and sets the scene for the ensuing circular tour of impressive original exhibits.
    Mukhtar brought us back safely to the hotel by about 1:15 pm. After a quick freshening-up, we vacated our rooms. Sameh was already waiting for us with his van for a three-hour safe drive back to Cairo/Obur.
    All in all, we had a wonderful, compact, and very enjoyable trip with all arrangements exceeding our expectations and falling in place like clock-work. Throughout our trip Ashraf was contacting us to ensure that everything was in order.
