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.

    I went to the Pyramids of Giza and it was truly a wonderful trip and a special experience. I recommend it to everyone And you should go and visit them on this site because their treatment is really very nice.

    I really had to see this and take some photos. But the entrance to the site and the staging area for photos are jammed with tons of tourists creating traffic jams and it was all too much. So get ready. It was worth the trouble, once in a lifetime. And get the history, way more ancient than I had thought.

    LOVED IT! Great first stop in Egypt! Have sunglasses, and maybe a hat or scarf. There are no shelters for shade like other sites. Glad we had a guide and driver. Our guide, Yasser Samir, was great at explaining the significant facts and historical and cultural context. That, paired with the reality of being there, made the pyramids extra special. It can be a lot of walking without a driver, especially if you want to see other pyramids on site. Camel rides are available for purchase and there are wandering merchants selling hats, scarves, postcards, stamps, fans, etc. Sometimes the sales techniques can get a bit aggressive and Yasser helped reinforce our messages as needed, which we appreciated. There is a special section for climbing on the Great pyramid, too. An additional ticket can be purchased to go inside.

    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!

    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.

    As a small family, we had a wonderful experience that I'd like to share. Although the VIP family package price wasn't clearly stated, it turned out to be affordable and definitely worth booking. However, one downside was the lack of clarity regarding the prices for different packages, which must be improved.

    If you're looking to buy souvenirs, I would recommend purchasing them from the village shop. It's better to do so there rather than waiting until you reach the airport, as the prices tend to be much higher. The village shop offers a variety of options and you can find unique items to take home as mementos of your visit.

    This place is especially great for kids. They will have a fantastic time exploring and learning about ancient Egyptian history. The tour guided by the river guide was both informative and enthusiastic, making the experience even more engaging and enjoyable.

    In addition to the main attractions, there are several museums within the Pharaonic Village. While you can visit most of them, I would suggest that only two of them are truly worth exploring. These particular museums offer captivating exhibits and provide a deeper insight into Egypt's ancient civilization.

    I highly recommend Egypt Historical Tours if you are looking for a thorough and enthusiastic guide. Additionally, they deserve a five star because of their knowledge of where and how to take unique photo ops and at no time did I feel rushed so I was able to comfortably enjoy my time in Egypt.
