Strongly recommend emo tours.
much cheaper than the hotel tour even with the 10 usd single supplement fee. Too bad there wasnt any discount for skipping the included lunch and snacks
My tour guide (Mamdou) arrived early so much so that i didnt have to wait even though i came to the lobby 5 min early. He also spoke very good english and explained the history.
He asked me upfront if i were interested in buying souveniers or riding the camels prior to arriving at the pyramid that way he can answer for me any vendor who tries to sell me stuff or services
he also gave me his view about entering the great pyramid. He said there wasnt much to see. I went anyway thinking i am already there anyway. He was right. Not much to see and was a waste of the extra 100le i had to pay.
I think i did fell into a tourist trap though when i bought a probably way overpriced papyrus painting. Not the tour guide's fault, i must admit. He asked if i wanted to do the optional tour at the start of the trip and i said no. He never asked again or insisted. But i noticed it was still early by the end of my trip i thought might as well just go. So i asked if we can go.
