We had booked three nights in Giza and we're looking for a company to take us round the main sights. We eventually booked with Maydoum Travel due to the good write-ups. The morning of our tour arrived and as we walked into reception we were greeted by the smiling Omar - our guide for the day. Omar introduced himself and took us to the air conditioned mini bus and off we went. We also had a driver but he didn't speak very good English so we focused on Omar.
Personally when taking tours we always have a chat with the guide and explain that we just want a 'light' overview. Some guides feel that they have to try to turn you into an archiologist or a Professor of Ancient Egypt. Omar got the message and we ended up having a great, fun day. In fact I can't remember the last time I laughed so much on a tour. Don't get me wrong, we learnt a lot but we also got on with in - if you know what I mean.
Omar is also a great photographer so we got some great pictures throughout the day as well as the usual 'tourist' shots (kissing the Sphinx etc).
Our tour included all the entrance fees and a restaurant lunch which was great. We were even given a bag with water, juice, crisps etc at the outset of the day. - snack bag!
So, if you've booked to visit Cairo / Giza and you're looking for a tour guide to take you round the pyramids and the local sights don't think twice, book with Maydoum Travel and you'll have a great time and can still be back at your hotel for a swim before dinner.
