It was a very good alternative to get this tour instead of the ones offered by the cruise I was on As I thought those ones were very expensive. I prefer to book this private one and had excellent results, the guide "Mina" met my expectations and so did the tour. Highly recommended.
I would take this tour again if going back to Cairo. Best regards
Ed

I just completed the booking a private tour with Ramasside from Sagafa Port in May. The process was very easy with Ahmed. He was extremely helpful and very responsive via email. We are really looking forward to the tour and the experiences and will report back on the tour service after early May.

A group of our friends (10) took this tour from a cruise ship on our own and we were very happy with doing so. It was a very long day from Port Said to the Giza to see the Pyramids and return to the ship - but worth it. We were fortunate in our timing of the trip because of the recent unrest I would not recommend traveling there but hopefully soon it will be safe. Seeing the pyramids and riding a camel were definitely highlights that we will remember forever. Seeing the other ancient sites was interesting and we were amazed by the library in Alexandria that we visited from the second port of call Alexandria. The most shocking thing to us was the lack of cleanliness in the area we visited, trash was everywhere and large accumulation of it. Our tour guide was very informative and helpful and we felt safe with him.

Like many others we arrived in Alexandria via a Celebrity Cruise ship. Tensions have been high in Cairo and there is always some uncertainty about planning a private tour versus one booked via your ship. Ramses Tours came highly recommended by other Trip Advisor users, and their service and support through the booking process and during the 2 day visit itself were first-rate. I recommend them with no hesitation. Also, you will find that the cost of a two-day private tour in a private vehicle with a guide and a driver is significantly less than what you would pay on a cruise line tour where you will be shuffled along in buses and in large groups. By being on a private tour, we had the flexibility to change our schedule, our points of interest, and not be restricted by other travelers. We also felt safer being in a smaller, more discreet vehicle. With Ramses Tours, you can request your guide by name. Our guide was Bassem, and he was tremendous. Great guide, great understanding of the history and culture of his country, very direct about answer any questions, and very customer focused. We would order for us at our meals, helped arrange additional activities (like a private 45 minute camel tour from the panoramic lookout at Giza to the Sphinx), and was always focused on our safety and getting us back to the ship in Alexandria in plenty of time before departure. Ramses Tours requires no advance payment, you pay at the end of the tour when you are finished, and we found it very easy to go by an international ATM and pay in local currency. The vehicle was a comfortable mini-van. Our driver was one of the best I've seen in the world, which is necessary when navigating Cairo streets and traffic. We spent two full days on our itinerary and couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you Ramses and thanks especially to Bassem, ask for him by name.

These guys are absolutely fantastic and professional.

First the booking process was amazing.Ahmed was really patient and his turnaround was so fast.
Next it was full day tour of Cairo.Mimo was our guide and he is a real jewel.He is a very knowledgeable but fun guide.We were on our honeymoon so Mimo made sure he gave us free time as well as clicked some memorable snaps for us.He was like a caring friend more than a guide.If you are doing a tour at Cairo make sure you ask for him,you wont be disappointed.

We were on a cruise for the next 4 days and again all arrangements by Ramaside were perfect.All guides in Aswan,Luxor were knowledgeable ,friendly and professional.The company even went the last mile trying to get us hot air balloon ride in Luxor to fit on our itinary.All the airport transfers were organised very well too.

Egypt is a beautiful country but you can lose your experience with the constant selling/pushing by vendors and the mad bargaining.Would recommend to book in advance and Ramasside is the best!
