Dreadful tour company best avoided.
We were picked up on time by the guide and driver in a nice car. This is where it goes down hill, it takes 8.5hrs of being in a car due to stops and the checkpoints. You end up if you survive the drive at a building site not far from the moastery. The food in the hotel is poor almost inedible, but by this point you are tired and realise you are not in what was advertised as in a 4* hotel 1* at most. You leave at approx 0130hrs for a short drive then its up hill for more than 3 hours, this is the only other good bit the view from Mount Sinai is brilliant. You then get the priviledge of another 8.5hrs getting a square behind on the drive back. We got lunch on arrival as we said we wanted to go back to Cairo, no breakfast as advertised. This was the worst tour we went on, use somebody else as these are dreadfull.

Imam the Great
All nerves of traveling to Egypt quickly vanished after a short time with our fantastic tour guide crew. Imam, our tour guide, greeted us from the airport and stayed by our side throughout our stay. He answered all our questions and went above and beyond to make our trip as comfortable and stress-free as possible. I would recommend this group to any and all.

Delicious!!
We loved our stay on this cruise. The ship was nice enough, the staff was fantastic!, and the food was soooooo good. Each night had a variety of food, you could order wine for a reasonable cost, and the service was amazing!! One night one of our family members got sick and they were so attentive! There is laundry service on the ship and a bar on the top deck!

Awesome trip to Giza and Cairo
It was been awesome trip to Giza and Cairo which included nile cruise dinner, pyramids, Sahara, sound & light show with dinner, tour to the Egypt museum, citadel and old Cairo, cairo tower, with dinner as well, Islamic tour, then feluca and Khan al khalili. All of the above had been done under coordination and monitoring of Mr. Imam (tour leader)and Mr. Ahmed (our driver) from sun pyramids. They was so helpful and gentlemen in terms of information and advises. I highly recommend this company and the team to serve you in your future journey. At the back office you may reach Ms. Nora or Ms. Aaml to reach you all requirements. Thanks to all sun pyramids team

Suez Canal - from Port Said to Sues inkl Bobastis
Always wanted to see the Suez Canal. Company and Guide Farouk were extremly flexible. Showed up in time, very pleasant professional handling of the day, good balance of speak and calm, knowlwdgeable. Excellent English. Bobastis is not a must to see- unless your are into archaeologie. Instead of sticking to the schedule, after Bobastis we crossed the channel in Port Said and stopped where the channel meets the mediterainien sea. Not a well developed tourist place. Stopover in ismaelia- you can take a ferry if you want (i didn‘t). Final stop: where the big container ships reach the Red Sea. Not a standard tour - but very individual with five stars. Email response from company could be better, by sending eg confirmation or respond in time (one email was unanswered). On the phone good englisch and very helpful. 5 Stars Company, 5 Stars Farouk

Pyramids & egyptian museum, Memphis/ Sakkara/ Dahshur, Nile dinner, bazaar and Old Cairo
Sun pyramids was extremely helpful on our 4 day tour in Cairo. They were very punctual and knowledgeable with Egyptian history as well as protective when being around the locals. Our tour guides Mohammed and Imem were super helpful throughout our time in Cairo. And our driver was extremely cautious on the crazy roads! I would definitely recommend booking a tour with them.

Cruise
Be extremely careful if you decide to stay on this cruise. They stole from my room several items of value, like a go pro battery, an iPhone charger, GoPro cables, GoPro plastic covert, and when reported, security staff dismissed my claims and refused to search staff quarters. The staff who cleaned the room was the only person entering my room. I traveled with a group and other group members lost money and other personal items. I would definitely not return to this cruise. I felt management is aware, therefore complicit.

Highly recommended
We sailed off from aswan to luxor, for 3 nights. Clean rooms, not much added value in upgrading to upper deck. The buffets are all great, never serving the same food throughout the stay. Drinks are not included in the package but are very reasonably priced. You can order alcohol anywhere on board at a surcharge. Staff are very friendly and quite helpful. Since boats park all the time near each other, you find yourself crossing more than one boat to get to the shore, so we saw many other ships, this one remains the best there is.

Dinner and Light Show at the Pyramids.
My family and I booked a dinner with the light show at the Pyramids. We were picked up right on time by our guide Adel and a driver. They were both very nice and courteous. The ride back and forth to the hotel was very pleasant. They were giving us tips about where to go and what to do in Cairo and Egypt; best food to eat, etc... and even during the dinner, they kept asking us if we needed anything or if they could be of any assistance. We highly recommend the company, the tour and Adel.

A wonderful time on the river
We were on this cruise for 4 days and had a very good time. The boat was very clean, there were common areas on ever floor and a beautiful upper deck with a shaded area, bar and a small swimming pool. The food was very good with lots of variety, no problems eating the salads. Dinner times were flexible and because of the size of the boat it is never too crowded. The desserts were spectacular, always different and very tasty. We were very pleased with the accommodation and the service on board, I would certainly recommend the ship.

Private Half Day Tour to Islamic Holy Family Cemetery in Cairo
Once again Sun Pyramids really came through for me by designing a personal tour of the Islamic Holy Families tombs and mosques in Cairo. This was a truly unique tour. Imam was my guide once again and he did a fantastic job. I really appreciate Sun Pyramids and Imam arranging for both of the unique and wonderful fully personalized tours that they have given me. I can’t wait to do another one!

Great Experience
We had four nights on board the Royal Lily as part of our Bunnik Tour of Egypt. The meals were excellent, drinks were very reasonably priced, and the staff were very, very friendly and helpful. The cabins themselves were bigger than I was expecting, good comfortable bed and even a bath in the bathroom. Tea, coffee and biscuits served on the top deck most afternoons, and the dress-up night in galabeya clothing was good fun. You obviously don’t sail too far up the river from Luxor to Aswan, but we knew that when we booked the tour. All in all a great experience
