Booked the tour online while I was at Cairo airport, in one hour came the guide and the driver, they both were very friendly and nice, took us a head to the great pyramid of Giza, our guide told us that we are lucky as streets were not busy, the atmosphere at the pyramids is a amazing and breathtaking, we have learn many things about the history and Egypt. We took also a lot of photos especially with Sphinx, my wife really love it. Thank you Sheriff for the wonderful time and the terrific photos.
