        Experiencia linda para ser repetida / Nice experience to be repeated
        Contratamos una excursión privada de 3 dias en El Cairo en Español. Desde la llegada al aeropuerto en el dia 05/06/24 hasta nuestra salida (08/06/24) para el proximo destino, siempre estuvimos en la compañia de unos de los traductores. En nuestros tours diurnos, Sherif fue nuestro guia. Persona con muchos conocimientos de la historia Egipcia que hacia muy amena su compañia. Para los tours nocturnos, tuvimos a la agradable compañia de Mustafa, un joven de apenas 22 años y muy educado y muy intelectual para su edad. La pasamos fenomeno con la compañia de los dos guias y por supuesto de lo choferes que guiaban los vehiculos de la empresa SUN PYRAMIDS. Todas los contactos iniciales los realicé con la Sra Nada de la parte operativa de la Agencia. Siempre estuvo dispuesta a mejorar, corregir los tours y procurar la mejor solución para nosostros. La elección del Hotel, tambíen fue realizado por la agencia. En este punto debo remarcar que el Hotel Great Piramids tiene un ubicación privilegiada frente a las Piramides. Un punto muy desconfortante fue la pesima calidad del aire acondicionado en la habitación. A mi entender, como ingeniero, la capacidad del equipamiento estaba por debajo de lo que necesitaba la habitación, lo cual hizo que funcionase a full y sin obtener resultados de confort. Por este problema, los guias y la agencia estuvieron siempre pendientes y dispuestos a solucionar el problema. Solo resta agradecer a SUN PYRAMIDS por el sentido de responsabilidad, seriedad, cortesia y excelente servicio que dan a sus clientes. Si viajara de nuevo a Egipto, seguramente los contrataria nuevamente y por eso ahora los recomiento a quien lea esto que los contacten que no se sentirán defraudados. We hired a 3-day private excursion in Cairo in Spanish. From arrival at the airport on 06/05/24 until our departure (06/08/24) for the next destination, we were always in the company of one of the translators. On our day tours, Sherif was our guide. Person with a lot of knowledge of Egyptian history who made his company very enjoyable. For the night tours, we had the pleasant company of Mustafa, a young man of just 22 years old and very educated and very intellectual for his age. We had a great time with the company of the two guides and of course the drivers who guided the SUN PYRAMIDS company vehicles. I made all initial contacts with Ms. Nada from the operational part of the Agency. She was always willing to improve, correct the tours and find the best solution for us. The choice of the Hotel was also made by the agency. At this point I must emphasize that the Great Piramids Hotel has a privileged location in front of the Pyramids. A very disconcerting point was the poor quality of the air conditioning in the room. In my opinion, as an engineer, the capacity of the equipment was below what the room needed, which made it work at full capacity without obtaining comfort results. Due to this problem, the guides and the agency were always attentive and willing to solve the problem. It only remains to thank SUN PYRAMIDS for the sense of responsibility, seriousness, courtesy and excellent service they give to their clients. If I traveled to Egypt again, I would surely hire them again and that is why I now recommend that anyone reading this contact them, they will not feel disappointed.

        Layover tour experience
        I was stopping through Egypt for a 16 hour layover and needed a quick trip curated and planned for me. Nada with Sun pyramids was quick to arrange an amazing experience filled with different activities. I was lead by Mustafa for a series of interesting shopping experiences, followed by a camel ride. It was a wonderful experience

        Egypt Tour Organized by Sun PyramidTours
        I visited Egypt from 29th May to 5th June 2024. "Sun Pyramids Tours" organized the tour for me and my wife. I must appreciate the excellent arrangements they made for our tour. I met an amassing set of friendly people from this company, who looked after us even before starting the journey. Trustworthiness of Sun Pyramid Tours too is excellent.

        The kayaking tour, and nile river tour were awesome. Kayaking on the nile was very relaxing. And the nile river cruise was entertaining.

        英語を話すガイドの方が来ると思っていたら、なんと日本語を話す現地のガイドさんが来てくださいました。流暢な日本語でカイロ市内を案内してくださいました。ドライバーの方もとても親切で頼もしかったです。1人で行ったら絶対ぼったくられてたであろう場所にも彼らがいてくれたおかげで気兼ねなく観光できました。 This was my first time and first day in Egypt. Yousif who showed me around all the places in Japanese was just amazing. I was surprised by how fluent his Japanese and it helped me a lot. The driver, Hamama was very nice as well. He picked me up at airport on time and bought me some snacks! I can say they are the best tour guides in Egypt.

        Perfect and easy
        From start to finish sun pyramid tour was perfect, from organizing the trip as i wished, to executing it. Habiba was easy to communicate with for booking everything. Every guided we had were good ! From Marie in Cairo to Moe in the white desert to Abdul in Aswan. If you aren’t interested in being run after to buy stuff from the salesman everywhere let your guide know, they will help you navigate cause it can get annoying even knowing that before hand, it was worst then we expected but if you go with open mind you will love Egypt

        Excellent Service
        Was a long day from Cairo to Abu Simbel but well worth it. Sun Pyramids Tours handled the booking of the flights from Cairo to Aswan and provided all transportation. I had been thinking about booking the flights and doing the driving myself, but am so glad I didnt. Just take the stress out of everything and let Sun Pyramids handle it. Our flight back to Cairo was late and there were no issues with our ride waiting and getting us back to our hotel. Abu Simbel is a must visit. Amazing site.

        A wonderful and an unforgettable experience
        My husband and I went for his birthday retreat in Cairo, Egypt. We used the Tifficss travel hub for advice on places to visit and where to explore Egypt. They were very informative. We took a trip to Mount Sinai, where we trekked from midnight to the mountains and hills over 2600 feet. It was challenging as we've never done this before. We had a fantastic tour guide, Mohab Ahmged, and our driver, Ahmed Hamama, who drove safely throughout our road trip. We also had another tour guide who supported us with the climb, he was also very helpful. Overall, they were kind and friendly. The guide explained the journey process, booked a one-day hotel at St Catherine, and provided food and drinks. The history evolved as we asked questions about Egypt. He was very patient with us, encouraging and understanding. We never dreamt of doing this adventure and thought it was fantastic. There were lots of us, which made it enjoyable. We rode the camels up to a certain point and then trekked 750 feet, which took us 3 hours. We never gave up despite the challenge. We made it just in time for the sunrise around 05:45. The most beautiful view we experienced was fulfilling. We prayed, cleansed ourselves and asked God our heart desires with a prayer request. Afterwards, we trekked down until we reached the Monastery for a tour. It was eye-opening and educative. What a wonderful, unforgettable experience. Thank you for making this day a memorable day.

        A good way a free evening in Giza.
        The show is good but if you are short of time, you can skip it without guilt. Its a one time watch and has a very classical and old technology presentation, which hasn’t gotten an upgrade ever since it must’ve began.

      I don't know were to begin for this tour has left me speechless. Yes, seeing the pyramid and the Sphinx are definitely incredible and a must see. However, if you want to see something mind blowing (and not dead); YOU MUST BOOK this tour. Seeing Garage City and the Cave Church are one of most incredible things that I have even seen. Even now I am still processing all that I saw.... it's beautiful, shocking and so profound all roll up. This tour has had a definite impact on me . SO If you are looking to see something outside of the normal places to visit in Egypt then I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour !!!!! You will not be disappointed.

      What we experienced while doing the tour is far from what they offer/ advertise and is way overpriced. On top of it, the guide needed to be more professional and prepared for the tour - he talked about anything that came to mind except for what he was hired to do.
      While on this awful experience, we contacted the tour operator regarding this matter - the representative was rude, dismissive, and gaslighted us repeatedly by asking the same questions and telling us "to calm down".

      I have used Viator for other tours and have had beautiful experiences. Sadly this was not the case.

      Don't book this tour!
