Adel organised a private trip for us for a week on a very short notice. He took into consideration all our special wishes and needs. We had a great trip and felt very safe all the time, which was... more »
Adel was a great and knowledgable guide. We had a day guided tour of the Agyptian Museum, Giza Pyramids, Sphinx and he arranged us a camel ride there. We also visit a papyrous shop, a perfume shop... more »
We did a day trip including Giza Pyramids, Saqqara (step pyramid) and Memphis. The day was amazing and fulfilled all of our wishes! We met Adel at 8 in the morning to start our full day adventure. He asked us if we had a preference for the sequence of seeing the three sites since to see them in historical chronological order would mean staring at Saqqara which he mentioned. However we all decided since we were staying close to the Giza pyramids it would be better to start at that location since it was early, less crowded and cooler temperature. The Giza pyramids were amazing and we went inside the middle one which was quite an adventure! Not for the claustrophobic though since the passage inside is only 1 meter by 1 meter. It does open up into a hallway followed by another much larger chamber so is not bad at all. We spent about 2-3 hours at Giza where Adel spent lots of time explaining everything, answered every question we had and took great pictures of us! Then headed to Saqqara (the step pyramid) where again we spent about at least 2 hours. This site was amazing, lots to see not just the pyramids. There are many underground tombs and lots still to be excavated. This really felt like an ongoing archeological dig. Adel didn’t just take us to see the pyramid, he walked us around a big portion of the site and most of the time no other tourists were in site because other guides just stayed at the pyramid which is such a shame because the best parts including all those underground tombs and many hieroglyphic freezes were in other parts behind a hill. Adel took us back and showed us so much, we got some of our best up close experiences and pictures at those sites in Saqqara! We then headed to Memphis and saw the large Ramses statue which was definitely a site to see! It’s a smaller site but that was just fine at the end of a long day. After we headed to have lunch, we opted to have lunch at the end of everything since we had a big breakfast but Adel made sure to ask us when we preferred and we said later in the afternoon which is more typically Egyptian according to Adel anyway. Also a later lunch allowed us to have great service as the normal crowds had come earlier. Had a great meal and then back to the hotel. Would tell anyone and everyone to go on this experience and Adel was amazing! He even looked up some pricing for a different specific experience we wanted and we asked about a real Egyptian antique store (not just a tourist trinket store) which he was happy to take us to if we wanted. Could not recommend the tour and Adel any more, he was amazing and the experience was perfect! Thank you Adel!
