I have been coming back for years!
The rooms each have a unique feel. The food is delicious and each tour we did was amazing. Desert Moon is one of the best choices for a great Cairo vacation. They handle every detail so that we may enjoy the adventure!

8/10 Very good

The staff of the properly are very nice and friendly. Because I don’t know Arabic it was hard to communicate but still they were very helpful. The hotel arranged me a very good private driver and tour guide. They were more like friends than just a tour guide. The tours are not cheap, I am from Canada so they were quite expensive, but I think it’s worth the money because they take good care of you taking you around. Otherwise for people who live in counties like Canada or America it might get very hard and overwhelming to navigate in Egypt because the culture and system is just sooo different. Overall I really enjoyed my time with my tour guide and the driver who made me feel very comfortable

I loved dessert moon. The staff and the owner made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. I was thousands of miles away from my home but they made me feel at home. They went above and beyond to make my stay the best and I will forever love dessert moon and the staff that work here.

6/10 Good

Not as Advertised
Host is amazing and very knowledgeable. He and his wife are both good people trying to be successful which is very inspiring. However, staying in Giza isn’t often what you expect. Not clean, streets full of trash everywhere, funky smell and dark at night. Our room was ok but not the one I chose and bathroom was really small. Despite how nice pyramids view is, I recommend staying in a nicer hotel in Cairo, not Giza itself.
