    You’ve read it about it in travel magazines. Heard about it in history class. Seen it on television. But to actually see it in person, touch it, walk on and inside it is sensational! I am grateful for the opportunity to visit and learn more about who and how the Great Pyramid was built. The other Pyramids are spectacular, too.

    Even is the distance, the Pyramids can’t mandate attention. They are examples of the human will, genius, innovation, and hard work!

    Great place for all your photos for memory. Good place for gifts and camel rides. You will end up taking most photos here.

    I guess no one comes to Egypt and misses seeing the pyramids at Giza.
    A wonderful sight.
    We got there pretty early in the morning, which is probably advisable: it wasn't too hot or too crowded.

    Yet another amazing monument to visit in awesome Saqqara. From the outside it is an extremely beautiful and well conserved pyramid, although NOT red haha.
    You can visit the interior, although I would probably recommend just choosing 3 or 4 so maximum so you don't overdue it -and I don't mean only from a physical point of view...
    Beside one of the bases, east side I think, you have a replica of the pyramidion that would have once been at the tip, covered with electrum (mix of gold and silver)

    It is the smallest of the "family pyramids" and the death of the ruler preceded the completion. It was constructed of limestone and Aswan granite. The interior was not open during our trip.
    in 12th century Saladin's son and the Sultan of Egypt attempted to destroy and demolish the pyramid but it proofed to be impossible. The vertical gash at its northern face is a reminder of the sultan's effort.

    Ibrahim did a wonderful job planning our 7 day Egypt trip. It was a great time and everything was thoughtfully planned out which helped us to sit back and enjoy the experience and the adventures. I would HIGHLY recommend this group to plan, and deliver a fantastic, educational, and an immersed experience. They communicated every detail, answered all questions so that we felt safe, secured all details for us to enjoy our time. Literally, planned and thought of everything. I learned and experiences so much. We had a great time and is absolutely coming back and booking this group again. I truly wished they were around the world to plan all my trips.
    Thank you again Ibrahim for everything. See you soon!!!

    My tour guide, Adel, was exceptional. His knowledge and expertise provided a truly remarkable day.

    As Egypt can be rather intimidating for a foreigner, Adel made sure that I felt comfortable and safe throughout the experience. There was no language barrier as his English was perfect. He only took me to verified shops per my request. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. Adel's passion and enthusiasm, along with his deep understanding of ancient Egypt, was always present. I recommend Adel as a perfect tour guide. He went above and beyond to make sure my day was perfect. I could not have asked for anything better. The tour was perfectly organised and it went smoothly. The driver was always on time and provided a safe journey.

    Your trip to Egypt is in-complete without Ahmed. Ahmed was an amazing person with lots of knowledge. Very good english, very friendly attitude, and very fair dealing. Ahmed made complete trip very easy and exactly as planned. I would highly recommend contacting Ahmed directly for anything that you need in Egypt. Without him, I am sure our trip would not even be 10% fun.
    Thanks Ahmed for a wonder trip. InshAllah we will meet again.

    My wife and I decided to book a trip with Ahmed guiding us. We were nervous due to a possible culture shock we might have experience, but Ahmed made sure we were all set for everything and made us feel like we were right at home. Ahmed made sure we were not lost from the moment we arrived in Cairo's INTL Airport and till we finished our tour.

    Ahmed has great knowledge of Egypt's rich history and showed us to many of Egypt's breath taking locations. Ahmed shows he is very organized and was always on time waiting for us in the meeting locations. Ahmed does small group tours and in my opinion is better due to having a greater personal experience compared to a 30 group tour. I highly recommend anybody to make the decision and book with Ahmed for your tour guide.

    I did the Private Tour to the Alabaster Mosque City of Dead & Alazhar Park in Cairo. I had the pleasure to have Ola as my guide and Yehia as the driver. Ola has so much knowledge to share, bonus she took me to see how Papyrus paper is made and the art that is traditionally done on the paper, I also had the pleasure to see some beautiful Egyptian jewels. Ola allowed me to stroll and to take my time with no pressure on time, I really loved how she would always volunteer her photography skills and make sure that I capture all the majestic moments. I would definitely use Emo tours if I get Ola again or someone with similar knowledge and hospitality. Thank you again for a wonderful one on one tour, great experience today.

    We booked to go Quad-Biking in the desert near the Pyramids with Emo. Our guide Ahmed Jackson was first class.

    He made sure we had a great time bashing over the dunes next to the Pyramids and gave us some great info as well.

    The activity itself was awesome and a fantastic way to get a different view of the Pyramids themselves. We had a great afternoon and I would highly recommend to anyone.

    I went to Egypt with 3 of my friends (all aged 21 and female) through Look at Egypt Tours. All of the employees were very professional and responsive throughout the entire trip. Everything was handled for us almost every second of the day and they made sure we were all taken care of. We stayed at the Fairmont Nile City and it was perfect! Great buffets and great service, definitely recommend staying here in Cairo. Both of our tour guides (Amina in Cairo and Dina in Luxor) were extremely knowledgable about Egypt and the specific areas where they showed us around. I absolutely loved them! Such warm and amazing women, would recommend them to anyone. Ahmed (the owner) and Mahmoud were also fabulous. They bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed and more and kept us in the loop for the itineraries for the day. All the people we dealt with at Look at Egypt Tours were outstanding. One thing I would recommend is if you're going to Luxor for a day trip, make sure you get on a 7:45 flight back to Cairo if available. Overall, it was an amazing experience, and thanks to Look at Egypt Tours we felt very safe and accounted for. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going. Thank you Look at Egypt Tours for an unforgettable trip!

    Our first leg of the Egypt trip comes to an end. A big shout out and kudos to Ramasside Tours. From the time we landed until the end of the tour, the service delivered is 10+ stars. Aamir of Ramasside Tours is an amazing person with an immense wealth of knowledge in history and culture of Egypt. If you are planning to visit Cairo, do not hesitate to go for Ramasside Tours and ask for Aamir.
    Very polite, helpful, punctual, very knowledgeable, no rush service. Aamir went above and beyond in extending his service to us.
    It was a pleasure knowing Aamir.
