          A travel through time
          My parents and I, we spent the day with our tour guide Mahmoud Badr and driver Esaam. We had an excellent day on this tour. Mahmoud has a captivating and expressive way of telling the history of the pyramids. He teleported us back to a time when Pharos ruled and Gods judge how big of a paradise you earned based on how much treasure you brought with you.

          Pyramid tour
          Hosni was a very knowledgeable tour guide. We visited 3 Pyramids +. We did this a day prior to a group tour of the Great Pyramid and others. I would highly recommend. He gave us a great background on the earlier pyramids and we spent ample time inside as opposed to what felt like a rush on the tour. He also provided a nice historical education as well.

          Great tour of the Valley of Kings and Luxor
          We had an excellent day touring Luxor with our guide Aladdin. He provided us a great deal of information in the Valley of the Kings about the various pharaohs over different time periods, and he was also highly knowledgeable about the Temples of Karnak and Luxor. He is pleasant, nice to speak with, and an all-around great guide. Recommended!

          Great day in Cairo!
          We had a wonderful day touring Cairo with Mahmoud. He is a highly knowledgeable guide, and he showed us a number of great sites. I couldn’t recommend visiting the Hanging Church more, and with Mahmoud it was even more interesting. He also had deep knowledge of the Egyptian Museum and its contents. You can’t go wrong with Mahmoud!

          Professional guide and all very easy
          Our guide Hosni was great and took us around Giza and Cairo. He was on time, very knowledgeable, professional and it was great to have a private car for air conditioning, quick drop offs and ability to leave stuff behind. Hosni took great pictures, took us to some local shops to learn about traditions and also had great places for us to eat on both days. We preferred our day in Giza at the Pyramids than wandering around churches in Cairo. The Mohammad Ali Mosque is worth the visit though. One minus was the tour company asked us to bring cash to pay for the tour. We got our cash in London at the bank before our trip. On the day the company did not accept certain US notes so we had to do online part payments. This resulted in additional fees/charges for us. Lack of communication around what versions of the US note they accepted was frustrating. We had no issue using those notes in other places in Egypt so it felt unnecessary to have this drama at the end of the trip.

          Fun, interesting and a great way to see the real Cairo.
          I spent 3 days in Cairo and on the last day I did a walking tour to see the real Cairo. We did a couple of mosques, wandered around and chatted to people and then spent some time in the Bazaars. It's such a great way to see Cairo, my guide was really lovely and answered all my questions and explained lots of cultural, historic and religious things to me and I really loved it. However this is a 3 hour trip max, so think before you pay $99.

          Great tour of Ancient Egypt!
          We had a great tour to Memphis, Saqqara, and the Giza Necropolis. I couldn’t recommend this company more. Our guide, Mahmoud, was highly knowledgeable about ancient Egypt, and I would join him for the same tour again. He was also great with our kids, and he handled all of the logistics behind the scenes. Thumbs-up, Mahmoud!

          Tour never showed
          I booked this tour and the company never showed for it. There was no cancellation and no update from them (unresponsive to my messages) until I contacted this platform. I only had a limited amount of time in Cairo and I was really looking forward to it. I understand life happens. People get sick, etc. But to be a no show…that is just completely unprofessional. And if they couldn’t manage the booking the booking should not have been allowed to happen in the first place.

        Great trip! Our drivers didn't interact with us much, but they were always friendly and attentive. The tour guides had everything that made the trip comfortable, relaxing and fun. I would definitely recommend the budget tour if you are by yourself and you don't want to pay for a whole private tour. The groups were small enough (my group only had 6 total) that it never felt like we were getting herded like cattle. 2 days is a perfect amount of time to enjoy the desert, see the stars at night, and watch the sunrise/sunset!

        On the upside the White Desert is well worth seeing and the food provided was good.
        On the downside 4 hours drive in an old small car with no air conditioning breathing dust and air pollution to get to the 4x4 cars (which where old and also had no air conditioning). Then another 2 hours to get to the White desert. Unless you where in a lead vehicle you will be eating dirt from the car ahead (due to windows up because of no car air conditioning). The cook / driver chain smoked.

        My husband and I came to Egypt for our honeymoon and thought we absolutely had to camp in the desert as part of an authentic experience. We visited many beautiful sections of the desert like crystal mountain, black and white dessert. We had fun sandsurfing. The most memorable part was the camping under the beautiful stars and having delicious food cooked by our guides. It was also fun getting to know other travellers through this experience. We would recommend this tour to others but make sure to dress warmly in December.

        I had a great overnight White Desert tour. It’s quite a long drive from Cairo but really worth it. Sleeping under stars is something I will never forget. Pick up from Cairo hotel exactly on time. Several breaks along the way to stretch legs and buy snacks. Tour guide/driver was very informative and friendly. I will recommend this tour to all who are interested wonders of the nature.

        It was worthy but long though. It takes 5 hours to get to the point and from there another 1 and a half to get to the desert. From that point there are a few stops where we swan in a cold sprint, did sunboarding and saw the black desert.
        The white desert is amazing, so it’s worthy to visit it even if it takes long.
        During the night we had dinner at the camping and we did a bonfire where some guides played drums and sang.
        The guide was not the kindest person in the world but it was okay.
