This is truly an outstanding place to visit. It took my breath away. So full of history and wonder. Stay with your guide. The local men constantly harass you for money.

It’s very surreal to go from reading about the Great Pyramids to actually see them in real life. We used Egypt Best Holidays to guide us to Saqqara, Dashur and, finally, the Great Pyramids. Of all the sites, this is the busiest, but that’s to...More
