    It is a boring ,walk through the temple. Just go during day and you will see more. Not worth the cost or time spent. I would not recommend.

    Wonderful Discoveries in Cairo
    Mohammed lend us on a very interesting and engaging tour and encouraged us to let him know of our special interests. Had plenty of time to see the historic sites plus others Mohammed thought we would enjoy. We especially loved the Coptic Museum! The building is a gem itself with impressive craftsmanship from 1901. Our only disappointment was that the Ben Ezra was closed for renovations and had been closed for a long time, so it should not nave been listed as part of the tour. Private tour was well worth every penny! Thanks!

    Excellent private tour!
    Joseph was an excellent and knowledgeable guide! Great english and provided an in-depth learning experience at every location. There were three in our party and he made sure we were comfortable and stayed on schedule without feeling rushed or stressed in finishing at a certain time. The lunch location was for tourists and basic food. Would have preferred a more unique and authentic option but was ok. I suggest allowing the customer help determine what is preferred within reason. Thank you to Joseph for a great experience!

    Ready to walk through history?
    The show is great, but be prepared to walk about a mile (walk area is poorly illuminated) during the show. The lighting for the show and the sound is very clear.

    Mena is a fantastic guide!
    Highly recommend this tour to Kalabsha with Mena. He is so knowledgeable, friendly, & truly brought the temple to life. The pickup for the tour was also seamless.

    Easy airport transfer
    We had a great experience with Farid for both our airport pickup and our departure trip. He shared Egypt history and sites along our trips. He walked us through the airport all the way to the lounge as we navigated the first baggage check, check-in and our extra baggage. We will absolutely use this service and request Farid again!

    Extremely Disappointing
    This was so disappointing. In the age of technology what a complete let down and totally not wot the $40 I paid for 2 VIP front row seats. To add insult to injury the narrating was in Spainish with a Sony walkman (like) translation headset of very poor quality. My advice would be to skip this low tech show, which is only 40 minutes. Worst still was the usher who quided us to our front row seats and then hovered around endlessly looking for a tip! There is a reading it was only 10% full..... SKIP THIS ONE.

    Fun Evening - Wonderful Picture Opportunites
    This was a fun evening adventure and provided some great photo opportunities. Our guide: Mahmoud Badr and driver: Sabri were very polite and punctual and humorous. Mahmoud is an Egyptologist and provided some great history of the sites/area during our time together. Fun guys and very engaging. We also had time to stop at the Papyrus shop where we were given a demonstration of how it is made and ended up buying a few pieces that were reasonable in price. The light show itself is a bit dated in terms of technology - and should be updated but overall worth a few hours in the evening while you are in Cairo and again for wonderful picture opportunities. Ask for Mahmoud and Sabri and you won't be disappointed. One last thing - be sure to dress appropriately if you go in the colder months as the desert does get chilly with some wind and you will need to bundle up

    Excursions on an international professional level
    We had a great experience! For two days we were picked up from the hotel directly in a clean and nice van, with a driver named Fares, whose driving is very smooth and safe. On the way there we noticed that the tour guide RAMY (who has a masters in Egyptology and speaks proper English) has a vast and detailed knowledge about everything related to Ancient Egypt. This made our time with him very special and we were able to enjoy all of the sights from new and interesting perspectives. The second day we went to three Coptic monasteries, one of them a historically preserved monastery on the West Bank, still kept in its impressive ancestry. Overall highly recommended and it’s also very comfortable to deal with their office through Mr. Emil.

    Knowledgeable and Friendly!
    With our excellent and knowledgeable tour guide I hope I have the spelling correct Husani or just Ani), we were so please at the level of detail he shared with us. Also, he navigated the sites so we would see the best ones by not allowing to fall into the usual tourist traps like making sure we saw Ramses V/VI and not ones most would see first (Tutankhamen’s major sites are in the Cairo museum for example). What was a breath of fresh air was he gave us the tour but let us explore on our own.

    Karnak light show not for us
    I would not recommend this activity regardless of your tour company. It requires walking thru the site at night in the dark. At several points there are some videos shown on the wall and that’s it. Walkways are uneven at points and you could fall.

    Food is cold and cheap. Reminds me of bad buffets in Vegas . Music not too bad . Traffic from our hotel like LA traffic on a lot of steroids. Would not recommend . Would rather go to mc donalds. Not handicapped accessible at all .

Visiting the Pyramids, Sphinx and Sakkara was amazing. The see the gifts the ancient Egyptians left the world was something I never thought would happen for me. I also was able to ride a camel from the Pyramids to the Sphinx. a true Bedouin experience. There was so much history to absorb, I know I will go back.
PS Elegant Voyage and our guide, Tamer, provided us with both very special experience and one we will not forget. Thanks, Tamer

Tour guide knowledgeable and willing to explain. I wish it was less commercial around the papyrus offers. It is truly a pitty the city is so full of garbage, there are not proper bathroom facilities at any of the attractions, and the proliferation of street salespeople is overwhealming. Such an amazing site the Pyramids; yet once visited, not to come back.

It has been a lifetime dream for me to visit the pyramids and Egypt in general. We were picked up promptly by a driver and a very enthusiastic guide. On the way to the pyramids he gave us a lot of his background and what we could expect from the day so I was thrilled that we would have all the information when we arrived.

It really is important to get a tour guide if you are not familiar with Egypt… Our tour guide was able to bypass all of the lines and get us in to the pyramid complex very quickly and easily.

Once we actually walked up to the pyramid that’s when things got weird… Apparently our guide wanted to give us a one hour talk standing just 40 yards from the pyramids instead of going straight to them and wondering around as I had expected.

It was news to us that there were six more pyramids besides the main three and we wanted to go see them but he would not let us. My son and I went inside the great pyramid which was incredible, but while we were inside my wife and our friend were not permitted to walk around the complex at all and was consistently Warren to buy the guide that every other human being was going to try and take advantage of them which is not true and extremely weird.

We briefly saw the sphinx and the pyramids from a good vantage point but just as we were expecting to see the solar boat and spend another hour the driver was driving away from the pyramids and as we protested they said sorry that’s all the time we have.

We booked our other two days of tours with other tour groups and had much better experiences… But I did not let our frustration with the tour guide to get in my way of having an incredible day at the pyramids.

After that things went much better we had an incredible lunch on the way to Memphis and Saqqara. By this time our tour guide started listening to us and we asked to make some small changes to the tour and he was amenable to that.

The moral of this long story is this. Whatever tour group you use sit down with the tour guide first thing in the morning and explain exactly what you want to do and tell them exactly your knowledge of what you were going to go see that day. Things will go much better for everybody if you start out on the same page.

It was so frustrating to have a tour guide who didn’t seem to understand our wants and needs but I still gave this four stars because it was very well organized and the day was still incredible no matter how frustrating our guide was.

Our tour from Cairo through Viator was amazing. We were met in the lobby of our hotel promptly. We traveled in comfort & safely. Our tour guide, Amgad Ali, was phenomenal. During our drive to the first destination, Amgad gave us an overview of Egyptian history. He was thoroughly knowledgeable, spoke English perfectly, and sensed the pace we needed to absorb the multitude of information. We, truly, feel we got to experience the magnificence of these sites! You won't be disappointed.

Such kind people who count on the tourist industry to thrive. My suggestion is to be as generous as your wallet permits.

The tour was excellent. Mr. Hassan was very knowledgeable and kind. He gave us the opportunity to learn almost everything about history of Egypt. He was really willing to explain and take us photos. The driver had the car ready at any time in order to move from site to site with ease. We had an anazing day with them! So professionals!!

My partner and I were on limited time whilst visiting Cairo, so I looked for a tour that would cover a multitude of different aspects about Egyptian history whilst at the same time provide the main sights. This day trip offered good value for the number of items covered and also a superb lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Sphinx and Pyramids on the Giza Plateau. Our guide, Mohammed, was friendly and shared the history of Egypt in a way that was easy to understand. My partner and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and recommend this company's day tour.
