      Amazing experience
      My friend and I went on a camel ride with Fox and his camels Casanova and Mickey! It was an amazing experience riding past the pyramids and the Sphinx! The desert, was spectacular! And the pyramids even more stunning! Thanks to the BEST guide Fox, for such an amazing experience. He knew the best spots for pictures and was very friendly! Thoroughly enjoyed this experience! Will definitely recommend Fox! ❤️

      Great View of Pyramids!
      Mostafa was fantastic! A sweet, smart, funny, and kind person who truly made this experience special. We felt safe and prepared on the camels. He took great photos and was such so friendly. No issues with money. Highly recommend!

      Good service
      Mustafa very nice, good English, camels awesome to ride. Mustafa managed to persuade authorities to get us in for student prices even though we had no evidence, and even after we finished he said he’d stay nearby in case we needed anything - only problem was we were asked for outrageous tip from the photo guy, but probably our fault for just agreeing 😂 be warned I guess

      Great Camel Ride and View of Pyramids with an awesome guide
      My family and I had the pleasure of being guided and taken on a camel ride around the pyramids with Mostafa and his brother. They provided four camels for four members of my family. Both were very friendly and funny. With so many vendors around, our pyramid guide recommended Mostafa. Right away he made us feel at ease. He provide ample information and let us enjoy the ride and views without rushing us. Both his brother and he were great with my kids and helped take numerous photos. Simply put they were great. I fully recommend taking a camel ride or any other activities with them. Big thumbs up!

      Must do with Camels
      I knew this was a must do experience and was prepared to pay whatever for the wife and I to do it....Needless to say, it was the best $10/each we paid and the experience was amazing....Now don't be surprised if they want to beg you for more tips (for food for the camel, etc) but remain strong in what you want and say...Go and enjoy.

      Must Do
      When visiting the pyramids I think personally that no trip is complete without a ride on camel back out into the desert and looking back at the pyramids. OK so you will get hassled to death by the Egyptians on their camels pestering you to take a ride. If you do you must barter hard. Pay no more than EGP150 per person - for that you make it clear that the ride must be a minimum of 30 minutes. They always expect a tip too! Photographically there’s no better opportunity than a camel ride. Enjoy Cairo for what it is and try not to lose your tempers ( which personally is so very easy for me 😊) See they pyramids first then do you camel 🐫 ride and get dropped off near the Sphinx.

      Camel ride behind Pyramids
      We did our camel ride as part of our tour. The camel ride was taken behind the Pyramids, giving you a better view of the Pyramids. There were a few camel operators at this location as well as a lot of markets to buy souvenirs and water! The camel ride is not to be missed!

      Had a great time with Mostafa. He knew all the spots and all the pictures to take. He was great to chat with and really down to earth. If I ever go back I will definitely be looking him up!

      Desert buggy ride
      Reserve an hour or two of your visit to the pyramids at Giza for a desert buggy adventure. The dramatic undulating sand dunes make a great setting for an exciting and carefree ride. There are places where you can stop to take a selfie with the pyramids in the background. And do it right. Wear a kaffiyeh.

      Visiting pyramids
      Camels and pyramids are the best things in Cairo. I had a wonderful time with Mustafa. If you are traveling alone, spend your day with him.

    Mahmood and his horses made our time in Giza so incredibly enjoyable. We are so thankful to Mahmood for his kindness and integrity. Sadly most of the time spent on the Giza plateau was dodging scams and hustlers—but this experience was a breath of fresh air. We ended up riding the horses by chance after we found ourselves needing a ride back to the main entrance after closing time and Mahmood offered us a fair price, a friendly personality and breathtaking photos to ensure our memories at the pyramids last a lifetime. Thank you for this exceptional experience! Highly recommended.

    A must do! There are several choices of providers, not sure which we used, was through Memphis Tours and was great. Besides the experience of riding a camel this gets you out of the crowds and into the back side of the Pyramids with a view of all and the queen pyramids. Then we rode up near them. You could maybe walk out into this area but in the heat, you would not make very far without a Camel. Our camel guide took amazing photos for us and was very friendly. Realize you will get a hard shake down at the end with an ask for a large amount of US $. I gave a VERY sizeable $US tip because guide was awesome, but at some point, you have to just tell them you will not give any more.

    We just spent 5 days in Cairo and the camel ride around the pyramids was the best visit we did thanks to Mustapha. He is a great guide, very professional! When we contacted him, he responded very quickly and was flexible about the schedule.
    Don't hesitate to contact him if you want to have a great experience around the pyramids!

    This trip was amazing!!!! I was so scared to ride a camel but Moustafa was so calm and reassuring. I originally chose to do the medium ride and quickly changed to the longer ride that goes all the way to the Sphinx. He also took so many great pictures for me that I will treasure forever. What an amazing experience. I would highly recommend!!!!

    It was a dream come true!
    Riding the camel beside the pyramids was one of the best experiences I’ve ever done in my life!
    Mustafa, was the best guide who took us in the camel and sent us to the most beautiful place where you can see all the pyramids together and took the most beautiful pictures of my trip.

    It was the most special day for me too, because i got engaged at the most romantic place in the world.
    Mustafa was the one who organized everything for me, helped me with everything and it went perfectly.
    I cant thank him enough for making my day the most beautiful ever!

    Mustafa is very very friendly, funny, one of the nicest guys I’ve met in Egypt, and from now on, one of my friends in Cairo.
    Hes so welcoming, helpful and nice, you’ll love his trip with camel and you’ll be satisfied with the view and the hospitality of Mustafa!

    The tour guide, Mustafa, was super friendly and showed me an unique panoramic view of the three best known pyramids. He made great photos for you, studio quality perspective and highly suitable foe Tinder, Instagram or social media’s. Also, he is a genuine caring person to know

    Mostafa is such a gracious, professional and passionate host! He welcomed us to the Pyramids and gave us an experience we will never forget. He is a great teacher and taught us how to ride the camels safely by ourselves within minutes! We were the only tourists riding by ourselves. Mostafa helped create a memorable experience and we are extremely grateful to have been guided to him. Not only is he a camel guide, he is also a genius photographer and will capture moments that he can only create for your memories. There are many camel guides at the pyramids, but be sure to ask for only Mostafa. You will not be disappointed!!!! Mostafa, thank you for warmly welcoming us to Egypt!!! We will be back to see you very soon.

    We had a fantastic experience riding the camels and learning abut the pyramids.
    Our guide was extremely knowledgable and looked after us throughout our whole trip. Ensuring we got great views and photos.
    He organised cold water for us, booked our lunch for us and even rode us up to the 9 pyramids lounge for our lunch!
    A truly memorable experience!

    100% recommend Mustafa and the Pyramid Camel tour. Highlight of our trip to Egypt! We went as a family, excellent and immediate communication after booking. Mustafa arranged a pick up from our hotel which took us to his location inside the Giza complex. You need to buy Giza entrance tickets (that is standard and you can buy online or at the entrance). He met us with huge smiles, learnt the family names and we each rode a lovely camel. The tour took us round the back of the pyramids so we could also see the sphyinx, across the desert up to the view point where you can see all 9 pyramids that make up Giza. Mustafa let our children steer the camels, it was safe, incredibly fun. He also gave us some information about the pyramids and took loads of photos with our phones. I cannot recommend this tour enough. It was our highlight of our holiday and this was a professionally run, friendly tour operator with no add ons, he kept the people trying to see stuff tourists away from us. 100% recommend. Just book it. Worth every penny.

    We had the most amazing time with Fox on the pyramids camel ride. Experience as itself was beyond amazing but Fox really made it even more special with his stories, jokes and spectacular photo skills! Highly recommended and we will come back for sure! :)
