Wonderful day tour with Mr. Majid from Gem Explore, excellent! Our guide for the second day Mr. Majed from Gem Explore was fantastic (we asked him for our tour the next day!). The guide was very helpful. We enjoyed a lot with Mr. Maged as our tour guide, as we enjoyed his beautiful explanation of the Egyptian history and civilization in the Egyptian Museum, as well as our visit to the Citadel and the Mosque of Muhammad Ali. It was a very interesting tour, in which we learned the history and culture of a great country. Our wonderful guide was on our side to make sure we were safe. Entry to all stations was smooth and we arrived quickly. The private car was clean and an excellent driver. Highly recommended!!!

Day tour to the Pyramids, sphinx, Saqqara and Memphis, with lunch and camel rides We enjoyed our tour very much. Especially accompanied by the tour guide, Mr. Majid Al-Behairi from Gem Explor, he was very friendly and really helpful, we enjoyed a lot of unique and useful information, historical about the pharaonic civilization and he helped us with everything we needed even by taking pictures for us, and enjoying camel rides and food, also with the shopping. He gave us a lot of valuable information about the history and about every site we visited. We learned a lot and had a great time. We highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful Experience With Maged Maged, with Gem Explore, is an excellent tour guide. My wife and I visited Egypt and spend 10 days in total touring all the major attractions in Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor and Aswan. Maged was our tour guide on most of our tours in Cairo and during our trip to Alexandria. He is a very experienced and knowledgeable guide who has a passion for Egypt and Egyptian history which will be evident as you travel with him. Prior to my trip, I had done some reading about Egypt, (which I encourage every tourist to do). We had long and meaningful discussions during our tours and his knowledge regarding ancient Egyptian history came through. Maged is not a typical tour guide who recites information that he has memorized. Maged provides real historical information and the more knowledge you have about Egypt, the more detailed and enjoyable your tour with Maged will be. My wife and I had a very good experience in Egypt on all our tours. I have remained in touch with Maged even after my trip and build a bond of friendship with him.

Amazing Pyramid exploration guide I was in Egypt for a few days and was guided by Maged from Gem Explore... Thank you so much for everything you did for me during our guided tour of the pyramids, Maged. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. I also really enjoyed your incredible knowledge of the area and the generous way in which you expressed your passion for what you do. I loved this very special tour and I will definitely look to tour with you again when I am back in Egypt again, as well as recommend you to my friends. You are very kind and extremely good at what you do! Thank you! Monique

Our Highlight in Cairo<3 (an honest Review) If you are Looking for a Tourguide who is really passionate about showing you around and not trying to scam as much money out of your Pockets as possible, then we can definitely advise you to take a tour with Majid. Since the beginning of our Stay in Cairo we had alot of bad experiences with people here, so we were very skeptical about Taking the Tour with Gem Explore. One Day before the Tour we had one of the worst experiences while traveling and we even considered not taking the Tour at all. Since we wouldn't get a refund if we canceled the Tour 8 hourse before, we gave Cairo a last Chance of treating us with decency and respect. And THANK GODNESS we met Majid as our Tourguide. He was the first Person in cairo who Treated us with genuin kindness, interest and respect, without demanding extra money for it in the End. There was no scamming. His Tour was packed with alot of Knowledge about The Pyramids and the History of ancient egypt, always interested in answering Questions. He is definitely passionate about his work and you can feel that he is not just taking you around to get his money. One Thing that we also liked, was that he was transparent with the costs. He would always explain when there would be extra costs and giving us the choice if we wanted to pay them. And by Choice we don't mean the Choice you usually get here in Egypt where you are pressured into taking Things even though you said no. To give you an example, He told us about a camell ride he had a Deal with, at a cost of 10 Dollars each. We declined and that was fine. No Pressuring. No hidden costs. At The End of our Tour there was a Short Souvenir Shop Tour that we didn't need. It seemed Majid had a Deal with These Shops to bring Tourists after the Tour. That was the first time of the Tour we felt a bit uncomfortable. But when we said that we wanted to leave right away, there was no pressure to buy something. So we where totally fine with it. Perhaps if you know you are not interested in Souvenirs just Tell Majid right away and that's fine. In the End we payed as booked and we where happy. We could end our Stay in Cairo on a great Note. By the way, also a big Thanks to our drive who was just as Kind as Majid and also seemed to have a good heart.

How GEM made our visit an experience to share with our children for generations to come. it was a fantastic day and here is why…. I am an Egyptian, and I have lived outside of Egypt my entire life. Visiting the pyramids has always been a hassle. Near the pyramids, salespeople have tried to bombard other visitors and me by selling souvenirs or overpriced camel and horse rides, which is frustrating. It can ruin the once-in-a-lifetime experience of visiting the pyramids. I brought my wife to Egypt, and I wanted a no-hassle experience so she could see the true beauty of Egypt and the kindness of its people. So, I decided to go with GEM tours after reading the reviews. I booked the tour three days in advance. After an hour of booking, I was contacted by Maged, the company's owner, via WhatsApp. He introduced himself and shared his excitement to be our guide to explore Egypt. The night before he picked us up, he recommended we be picked up at 9 am instead of our original booked 10 Am tour. This way we can spend more time at the pyramids to explore. My wife and I both agreed to start at 9 am. The following day Maged was at our hotel at 8:30 AM. We departed the hotel at 9:20 AM because I was late which Maged waited patiently for us. The ride from our hotel to the pyramid took about 45 minutes. The car was in excellent condition, and the driver was very safe. He drove the speed limit, was gentle on the brakes, “heavy breaking makes me nauseous in the back seat” he stayed with us all day, and he was genuinely happy to be a part of our experience exploring Egypt. He is also working on his license to become a certified tour guide which he will receive in the next two months. Our first stop at the pyramids was terrific. Maged’s 20 years of experience showed. He was informative, enthusiastic, and well respected by all the security guards and other tour guides in the area. He was the man. Everything was so smooth and hassle-free—no one approached or harassed us. After we toured the pyramids he took us for a 30 minutes camel ride to a panoramic view of the pyramids. I am a 36 year old man and yes I do admit that the thought of riding a camel made me uncomfortable and hesitant which made me think twice about riding the camel. But after I manned up and followed my wife’s footsteps 😂 I got on that camel and It was a blast. Once we got done touring the pyramids and taking pictures, Maged took us to a restaurant for lunch. Food was a good portion, tasted amazing, and staff were friendly. They manager knew Maged since middle school and treated us like family. After lunch we went to the museum. The entry ticket to the museum was already included in the package I purchased from TripAdvisor, and since I don’t have any documents to prove I am Egyptian, I pay the same price as a tourist. At the museum, Maged was able to get me a ticket as an Egyptian, and he refunded me the extra money, which I respect him for his honesty and integrity. We ended the day by going to the bazaar, and he drove us back to the hotel. I shared my experience here no to gain anything. I shared my experience because I love Egypt, and I wanted everyone to come here and have a fantastic experience that’s a hassle-free. With all honesty and from the bottom of my heart, I recommend Maged because he was able to show my wife and I the true beauty of my own country.
