Ahmed was extremely knowledgeable in explaining all about the Step pyramid, the red and vent pyramids, Sakkara and Memphis. We had a wonderful time thanks to his energy and experience. Thank you Ahmed!

Amazing trip, guide was friendly and interesting. Me and brother learned alot about the pyramids and Egyptian history. We were picked up and dropped off near our apartment, and the guide even helped us find a pharmacy after the tour which was nice! Lunch was good, however after we ate , we found that drinks were not included, not even water. For the price we paid, one would expect at least a bottle of water with our meal, especially as tour involved a lot of walking. My only other criticism would be our guide asking us to go to a paparyus/perfume shop afterwards. From my experience in Egypt, this is typically code for significantly overcharging/scamming tourists for cheap oil/paintings. I might be being cynical based on past experience, as I spent Monday afternoon being aggressively shouted at by a local perfume shop owner who got angry I wouldn't pay 3800LE for 2 bottles of oil. If anyone reads this review, I would implore you to research market price for these items, as usually you can buy elsewhere for a fraction of the cost offered to you. But I feel as if the guide should know that this as a common scam, and should not take you to these places. My guide in Giza (not viator, but local guide) even earned commission for taking me to the perfume shop! Other than that, my guide and driver were lovely and helped me and my brother to have a great experience! I would definitely consider booking with viator again.

We really enjoyed this half day trip from Cairo. We started early in the morning and drove around an hour to the pyramids of dashur. On the way our tour guide Sayed Mahmoud and Driver Hany omar organized a little breakfast (juice and cookies) for us. In dashur we could climb into both pyramids. The red one was pretty easy to climb in, the other was really exhausting. Unfortunatelly the lights in the pyramids was not working so we had to use our phones as flashlights. Also there were bats in the pyramids which made it a bit scary but a unique experience. Afterwards we continued to Memphis and Sakkhur. Our tour guide had a broad knowledge he could share with us. To finish the half-day tour we had lunch in a traditional restaurant, it was delicious and we could even try to make flat bread ourselfs. We really enjoyed the experience and could recommend this tour to everyone.
