All were built during the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt. The site is at the edges of the Western Desert, approximately 9 km (5 mi) west of the Nile River in the city of Giza, and about 13 km (8 mi) southwest of the city centre of Cairo. The Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of Khafre are the largest pyramids built in ancient Egypt, and they have historically been common as emblems of ancient Egypt in the Western imagination.They were popularised in Hellenistic times, when the Great Pyramid was listed by Antipater of Sidon as one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Tamer was a great Tour Guide and our driver was amazing getting us from one place to the next. We did everything we wanted and he made side stops to accommodate our education of Egypt. He was also very informative about Egyptian history. He was also very patient as we were definitely not used to the heat and we were very slow moving at times. Book this company, yall wont regret it.

I was initially apprehensive of this tour due to not having confirmation of a pickup point until the morning of the tour. I really did not sleep well the night before as a consequence of worrying that I would have to make a last minute tour reservation for the same day. That aside the tour was very enjoyable. Mohsen was very knowledgeable on the subject matter and spoke in an engaging manner. Being on a private tour afforded certain flexibilities. Mohsen used this to great effect to beat large tour groups to different sights. Basically we were always just ahead of the large groups which was important given how narrow and hot the passageways into the pyramids were. I'm not sure how worth the effort of climbing into the pyramids actually is. One of climbs was pretty rough. I forget which pyramid exactly. Was either the Bent or the Red pyramid but it had the best interior. Well lit, well ventilated and had a large number of bats sleeping at the top which itself was an interesting sight to see. If you go expecting to see treasures or beautiful hieroglyphs, you'll be disappointed. But having travelled to Egypt to visit the Pyramids, I decided I might as well have a look inside. The camel ride was a bonus. I wasn't expecting anything from it but the camel guide was very photo-savy and helped take a lot of cheesy but fun photos for you. Overall I would recommend this tour. The tour loses one star due to slow and poor correspondences with the client
