About
Visiting the Giza Pyramids and Sphinx is a must-do when you're in Egypt, but it's frustrating to deal with all of the touts that line up on the way there. The best solution is to book a private tour guide who can show you around without any hassle or unwanted sales pitches. This tour gives an excellent opportunity to explore 3 main eras of Egyptian history as you will explore the Giza Pyramids and Sphinx (ancient Egyptian history), the Hanging Church in Coptic Old Cairo (Christian history) and the Alabaster Mosque in the Citadel (Islamic history). You'll have plenty of time at each site so that you can take your own photos, talk with local people, shop for souvenirs and eat lunch while enjoying great views from across pyramids plateau. Your day trip ends back at your hotel whereupon our driver will drop you off after dropping off other passengers at their hotels/host

Ashraf is amazing!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Ashraf picked us up at the hotel 15 mins late, which was so amazing. I wanted to check into my flight the next day and he patiently waited until the check in was open.

We started the day at the hanging church, he brought us cold water and walked around. At every attraction there was lots of information but also a bit of time to spend alone checking it out.

We then went to the pyramids. It was very hot and he waited with an umbrella after advising against the buying of things from the locals. Great advice as we were bombarded the moment we left the car. He had a lot of local knowledge and good tips on great photos. He's also vey funny and we spent the day laughing and joking!

Lunch was great. We were given the option of chicken and kebabs, or street food. We choose the local eatery, and it was the BEST shwarma I've ever had! He eat with us for awhile and then gave us some time to enjoy the rest of our meal. That was one of the most amazing things about him. He reads his audience so well. We had him within a moments notice, but it was never intrusive, and my partner and I felt like we had some time to ourselves too. Such a fantastic quality in a guide.

The museum was last. We were both very hot and tired, and he showed us the high lights, and again, could see that we were both needing a break.

There is nothing I would say would improve the experience, he was one of the best guides I have ever come across. As a professional tourist that has taken hundreds of tours, and visited 64 countries, I would ask anyone to look up Ashraf if they come to Cairo. I would spend an entire week touring with him if we had the time!

An absolutely perfect day with our guide, Ashraf
We started at 8 am and went straight to the Giza Pyramids. Since this was just the two of us with a private guide, Ashraf, it turned out to be a very flexible and wonderful tour. We shopped at 2 fabulous places for jewelry and papyrus and then had a lovely lunch. We then saw Old Cairo and the Bazaar. The Tree of Life tour company is first rate. We highly recommend it!

Aug 2018 • Family
We booked a private tour for two families to visit the Pyramids, Citadel and the Cairo Museum. We really had a great time and Ashraf, our guide, made our day very special. We were traveling with 5 small children what requires a bit of extra time and patience and we got both. Ashraf took very good care of us, driving us through Cairo, its culture, and of course the history of the places we visited. He was very kind and thorough, taking the time to explain and reply to all of our questions in a way that kept us captive of the amazing things we were seeing. Definitively it was a great experience and he was also very nice with the kids, always patient and understanding... as Ashraf himself would say, that's normal when you are with the best guide in the world :-) ! (lol)

Amazing Tour of Pyramids and Cairo
Aug 2018 • Couples
We had a Marvelous time on this full day tour!! Our tour guide was Achraf and he went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time touring the Pyramids. there are good guides in egypt, but no one can be better than Achraf. He was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to provide an immense amount of history in a fun and interesting way, Definitely would recommend them to anyone visiting Egypt. Ask for Achraf to be your guide. You will not be disappointed. Also, I had to mention this, our driver Hazem was a great driver, In Egypt driving is a difficult task, however with Hazem it was a smooth journey. After finishing our journey visiting the pryramids and Cairos Old town, we went on a dinner cruise, where our guide was Ahmed, he was prompt, kind, knowledgeable very nice guy that made our experience on board fantastic. it was an amazing journey!!

My friend, her father, and I had an amazing time on the tour. Rania was more than amazing and went out of her way to make sure we had a perfect experience. She was fantastic and so was the entire day. We were impressed at all we saw and did in one day. Amazing!! Thank you Rania!!

Stole my money - DO NOT USE
Feb 2018 • Solo
I never actually went on this tour. I had scheduled a private two-day tour in Cairo and paid a deposit. I was communicating with Ashraf from Tree of Life. After I paid the deposit Tree of Life stopped responding to me. They didn't answer my emails or my calls never picked me up or gave me a tour. Quite simply they stole my money. Maybe take a risk and they give you a tour but was not the case for me. Use another tour company.

Seamless tour - great insight, relaxed itinerary and very helpful
Jan 2018 • Friends
We contacted Khaled on a recommendation from a friend who had recently been to Egypt and we were not disappointed. Khaled picked us up form the airport and has a phenomenal knowledge of all of Egypt. We were lucky enough to see the Museum, the hanging church, the pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx, along with a visit to a perfume shop and a papyrus shop. Khaled was very helpful and honest with us (especially about customs and the like for tipping etc) and made sure we were well looked after throughout the day. He also knew the best spots for all the photos - we will be back in a heartbeat and would definitely use him again - we have already recommended him to someone else.
