Additional Information

Your Egypt Tailor Made tour guide will meet you at your hotel and escort you to the Giza Plateau. There, you will marvel at the majesty of the 3 Pyramids of Kings Cheops, Chephren, and Menkaure, vehemently watched over by the stone-carved Sphinx. The Premeditated Pyramid of King Cheops holds its ground to this day, standing as the only member of the seven wonders of the old world, despite being 2,000 years senior to the other wonders.

Next, you will journey to the Saqqara Complex, a monument to King Zoser and his innovative step pyramid - the first of its kind in Egypt and the first stone-cut structure in recorded history.

Your voyage of discovery continues at ‘Memphis’ – an age-old Egyptian Capital up until around 2,200 BC, a significant place of worship for God Ptah, the deity of creation and artistic craftsmanship. A myriad of temples and monuments decorate the city in honor of him.

Following this educational journey, you will be escorted back to your hotel.

Touring Egypt with peace of mind - What an exceptional private tour to Saqqara, Memphis, and the Giza Pyramids, guided by Ahmed Zaki with Kazafi as our skilled driver! Ahmed Zaki is resourceful and has so many connections around all sightseeing spots. We got to use efficient shortcuts, saving us time and energy. Ahmed's network ensured a hassle-free experience, sparing us from disruptions. Kazafi, our punctual driver, ensured comfortable transportation. Very smooth driving and safe experience - worry free throughout. Together, Ahmed Zaki and Kazafi formed an exceptional team. They are also very kind and generous to pay for our lunch and tea and coffee. Our heartfelt thanks. We felt they treat us as part of family and truly care for us. I wholeheartedly recommend Ahmed Zaki and Kazafi for a private tour filled with shortcuts and seamless exploration. Their professionalism and commitment made all the difference.

Egypt Tailor Made Tours and Guide Heba - We just completed 11 days tour of Egypt, with 6 days at Cairo including the tour of Alexandria. Our entire Cairo tour, Alexandria tour and airport transfers were handled by Egypt Tailor Made Tours. We were looking for a private tour for two of us, without accommodation, has the flexibility to visit Cairo at our own pace. Egypt has several top rated Travel companies and to select the one that suits our need was very tough. But undoubtedly this company was perfect for us and met all our expectations. I sent the list of places to be visited and the travel dates. They chalked out the entire trip for us which suited us. I found this company very professional, organized, and the entire trip was smooth without any difficulty. Qazafi, our car driver was very polite punctual and took care of us quite well. Heba was tour guide at Cairo and she is undoubtedly one among the best. We felt comfortable with her on the day one itself. She has a pleasant personality, has indepth knowledge of Egyptian history and presented it very well. She was always very calm and composed, never rushed through places. She took some brilliant pictures for us. She saw to it that we had the best experience in Egypt. We had a lot of chitchat throughout our trips and had a lot of fun like travelling with a friend. We met as tourist and guide, but parted as friends. Only disappointment we had with our Alexandria day tour with a different tour guide, where we were rushed through the Catacombs visit even though we had a lot of time in hand. Otherwise, we had a perfect holiday at Cairo with Qazafi and Heba from Egypt Tailor Made Tours.

Really enjoyed our tour!

Embark on a Majestic Pyramid Tour accompanied by the Best Guide in Town! - We had an incredible day-long tour with our guide, Ahmed Zaki, and driver, Kazafi, to the Pyramids, Sphinx, Saqqara, and Memphis. Ahmed arrived promptly at our hotel, and we began the tour by visiting Saqqara to admire the Step Pyramid and explore the surrounding area. Throughout our journey, Ahmed provided enlightening presentations on Egyptian history, accompanied by visuals on his tablet.  Next, we traveled to Memphis to view several historical masterpieces, one of which was the iconic statue of Ramesses II. We finished the tour by enjoying the breathtaking Pyramids in the Giza plateau.  Ahmed is an experienced guide who is respected by people around these sights. Because of this we were able to enjoy some VIP treatment thanks to his connections. Ahmed is also an excellent photographer who knows the best spots to take memorable photos.  Kazafi, who is not only an exceptional driver but also incredibly polite, skilfully drove us around the sights. Ahmed and Kazafi make a perfect team for a delightful tour experience. I wholeheartedly recommend taking a tour with Ahmed and Kazafi to fully appreciate the beauty of these sights.

Best tour company in egypt - I planned week long trip to Egypt. Got in touch with Egypt Tailor Made. The team was so responsive from start, I got my itinerary tailored and they made whole program to fit my needs. These people know what they are doing. They are professional and knowledgeable. Shoutout to Sabry - Best tour guide and ana amazing human being. I can say we met in a professional capacity and left as family. His immense knowledge, people’s skills and the way he ease down the day for you is too good. Rania was our Guide in Alexandria, she is super knowledgeable and amazing person. She helped us with getting our sims sorted, getting money exchanged and took us to pharmacy for meds which was not part of her job. But she made sure of everything. Our driver for most of the trip Mostafa is gem of a person and really take care of safety. The whole trip was taken care with perfection by whole tailor made team waled, Amr, Ahmed, Sabri, Rania and Mostafa. Definitely made long term relationships with these guys.

Amazing Experience in Egypt - We had a great time visiting Egypt in Christmas 2023 and New Year 2024 (recently), due to war in Israel we want to make sure safety is our priority during our trip because we also travel with 2 young children (8 and 11 year old), we contacted and chose Egypt Tailor Made to make sure tours and transportation are well taken care of. Sabry is our favorite tour guide, he has amazing knowledge (he is also in archology), fluent in English, friendly and open mind. My wife is modeling and he helped us have all amazing photos and videos. Very patient and humble man help us seeing Step Pyramid, The great pyramid, Sand Dunes, Sahara Desert, Museum.... And esp most highlight of the trip was visit The Cavern Church (where Jesus, Mary and Joseph stayed for 3 months in Egypt to escape Herod) and the hanging church. He is very honest helping us with suggestions and recommendation. He is our favorite tour guide and choose him, you will not disappointed. P/s: It is very safe in Egypt, we didn't see any terror, protestors, riots.... Thank you Sabry. May God be with you and your family with much blessings, health, peace and joy to know his love and mercy is all we need.
