We had a really great experience with Salib as our guide. The info he shared with us was very interesting and straight to the point. He was able to answer any and all sorts of questions we had. He was friendly, knowledgeable and made sure we were enjoying our time. The lunch was worth it and the papyrus shop was interesting, just pls prepare to haggle with the salesmen there… facinating seeing and learning about the artwork/hieroglyphics in Sakkara. And lastly the Giza pyramids were just breathtaking and fun to learn about. Tons of photo ops and Salib took really cool pics of us! I highly recommend!

Salib and Mido were excellent! We had the most fantastic day visiting Giza Pyramids, Sakkarah and Mephis. The driver was very good and the air conditioning was a dream in the extreme heat! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learnt a lot! From the moment we were picked up at the arrivals hall at Cairo Airport until drop off they were extremely friendly and did everything they could to ensure we had the best day! I would highly recommend booking this tour with Salib and Mido you will not regret it! Thank you so much for the best trip! Helen & Mubarik
