The people at FB Stables came to my rescue after a harrowing experience with a dirty scam run by the owner of the Cairo Inn, one that ended at the wrong stables. (DO book with FB Stables, but do NOT stay at the Cairo Inn!) FB Stables went out of their way to make sure that my bad experience did... More

We booked FB stables for a 2 hour camel ride and 1 hour ATV tour. Overall, I was very satisfied. I had read that they had a rooftop terrace but we were the only people there that day and it was not quite the atmosphere I planned on. It has a great view of the pyramids, though we did not... More

I live in Egypt and know how things can be here, so I looked around and decided to use FB stables after seeing the glowing reviews on this very site, and I can safely say I was incredibly pleased with my decision. The guys at FB stables were fantastic and me, my mum and brother all had a great time... More

My family and I lived in Cairo in the 90's and one of our favorite activities was to spent weekends at FB Stables. We stabled our horses with them and spent countless hours both riding in the desert and drinking tea or soda and relaxing with a view of the Pyramids. FB Stables was like a second home to us,...

Lovely Arab horses, well cared for, obedient. Excellent guide (Mohammed) - a true horseman, knowledgeable and charismatic. Fantastic way to see the pyramids too, and amazing to gallop in the desert, wide open tranquil space, away from the noise and hubbub of Cairo - such a memorable experience. Khalim (who picks up when you call/text the stables) is brilliant at... More

I make sure I ride every day at either FB Stables Giza or FB Stables Abu Sir during my business trips to Egypt. Wonderful horses and instruction. The ancient monuments are even more spectacular from the Sahara and the sunsets are amazing. It is well worth getting away from the tourist hotspots for the silence of the desert. It is... More

The experience we had with FB Stables was the most unique and memorable portion of our 2 1/2 week vacation. Cairo was the second leg of our vacation and I’ll be honest, I was apprehensive about visiting Egypt, especially with friends and family in LA and elsewhere telling us we were crazy for going. But we decided it was a... More

Absolutely wonderful experience! Karim, Ahmed, Karen and everyone else was very kind and helpful. They arranged for us to be driven to and from Heliopolis, so we didn't have to worry about transportation. We went for an hour ride near the Pyramids first and enjoyed it so much we returned for a longer ride from Giza to Abu Sir. It's... More

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...
