We took a 2 hour horse ride at sunset to view the pyramids with FB stables, and they didn't disappoint. The car they sent arrived on time, and having never ridden a horse before it was an amazing experience! 2 things to note, 1, the horses seem in fantastic condition, compared to some in the region, so we felt the...

It is so difficult to try and choose a business based only on what you read online and that's why I have to write a review. These folks were great. Easy to communicate with, no pushy requests, friendly and open. Most importantly, the horses were well cared for - some other places the horses just look terrible. Karim was super... More

I always use FB Stables...I was recommended by a friend who grew up at Giza. This is one of the best stables, staff and horses. My tour groups whatever ability level always thoroughly enjoy the experience of riding in the desert with the pyramids as a spectacular backdrop. A family business that cares. This business is definitely worth seeking out.... More

We booked our day - our first day in Egypt - with FB Stables before we flew out to Egypt after many helpful emails from Karen! We were picked up from our hotel at 9.30am. given the Keffiyeh at the main gate (entry fee separate to the Stables cost) and then had a 2 hour camel ride around the boundary... More

Karim and Karen from FB stables made my trip to Giza a trip of a lifetime. I had emailed with Karen prior to our visit and arranged to be picked up from our hotel in Giza. The car arrived promptly and took us to the stables where I felt immediately welcome by the family. We first mounted our camels and... More

Karen and her team are excellent to deal with from first communications to meeting them on the day..so friendly and professional. Karen arranged our transfers to the stables which was perfect for us. The stables are clean and the horses are immaculate, well cared for and have fabulous temperaments even for the total beginner as my son was. Our day... More

Do not hesitate, just book. I have never seen more horses than in the area around the Pyramids. Most of them to be honest looked fairly undernourished whereas the horses at FD Stables were well cared for and were a pleasure to ride. Before booking I exchanged several emails with Karen; who very helpfully is English. Karen answered all my... More

I made a short ride to Abu Sir. Karim is very welcoming and hospitable, his choice of a horse was great. As a result the ride was just what I needed. Next time I'm in Cairo I'll surely visit them.
