Memorable two-day trip to Cairo and the Pyramids with Fatma Mohammed.
chandu_t, Nov 2023
This two-day guided trip to Cairo and the Pyramids, with our awesome guide Fatma, provided a deep understanding of Egypt's rich history and a profound appreciation for its ancient wonders. Fatma was very warm, and she took us to the best restaurants in Cairo. We especially liked the Egyptian food. I would recommend this trip to anyone with a fascination for history, culture, and the mysteries of the ancient world. Cairo and the Pyramids exceeded all expectations, and I will cherish the memories of this trip for a lifetime. If you're considering this plan, then do ask for Fatma Mohammed as your guide. She will help with taking photos and is also very flexible with the itinerary. Thank you Fatma.
Great Safe Experience and Great Price

We had two great days with Nour! On the first day he took us to the Giza Plateau, Saqqara, and Memphis. In addition to seeing the awe-inspiring historical sites, he also took us to a perfume-smelling experience and a papyrus-making experience, both free-of-charge with no obligation to purchase anything. We chose to do a late lunch and our day ended with a delicious meal at a rooftop restaurant with beautiful views of the city. On the second day, Nour took us to the Egyptian Museum. He let us know that many of the exhibits had already been moved over to the new museum (which was not yet open when we were there), but showed us the highlights left in the old museum. Well worth it - we saw some amazing historical artifacts and Nour provided great information! We also went to the Khan el-Khalili market where we were able to pick up some little souvenirs, which was great fun. Our tour also included a visit to the Citadel and the Hanging Church, both great places for those interested in religious history. Our second day concluded with tasty Egyptian cuisine at a local restaurant. Nour speaks excellent English and answered all of our questions about Egyptian history and customs as they came up. This tour also came with a driver and we found it very affordable given how much was packed into our two days in Cairo.
Truly incredible!
Alex_D, Aug 2023
Had an amazing time exploring Cairo with our vibrant and knowledgeable guide, Fatima. We were very well looked after and got to see all of Cairo's main historical sites, with the itinerary catered to fit our interests. Definitely recommend!
Best tour of Cairo/Giza ever!
Rebecca_D, Aug 2023
We had the most amazing tour with Fatima! She was so knowledgeable and experienced and made our trip incredible! We visited so many places including the Pyramids of Giza and the Citadel. We would HIGHLY recommend booking this tour with Fatima!
Superb
Daniel_I, Jul 2023
Fantastic tour. Everyone on the group loved the itinerary and especially Ahmed, he's just the best, believe me. Informative, funny, never boring. It seems like he know every single person in Cairo, so whathever you need, he will arrange it. We made a mistake during prenotation, we put the wrong dates, and he did his best to solve our mistake. Also, our tour was in Italian, Ahmeds Italian is perfect. Thank you for everything!!
Interesting, knowledgeable and in depth tour!
Emma_G, May 2023
Mour was a fantastic tour guide! He was knowledgeable, answered every question we had, took photos for us, and made sure to take us to some of the most famous sites, as well as show us some not so well known. Highly recommend booking, our first time in Cairo was great and we learnt so much thanks to him!
Best 2 day tour of Cairo
Kurt_S, May 2023
The tour was simply amazing. Sameh is a great guide with lots of knowledge of all the sites we encountered on our journey. He managed to impart his knowledge in a friendly manner and is a great ambassador and host.
Egyptian History Made Easy!
William_H, May 2023
Our tour guide brought our Egyptian knowledge of 6000 years up to speed in two days. Michael was excellent, knowledgeful, very friendly and gave us the tour de Egypt! I would highly recommend Michael and this tour operator. Everything we hoped for and more!
Fatma Mohammed the best tour guide one could have.
Christina_D, May 2023
We had the best tour guide ever! Fatma Mohammed is the funniest and most knowledgeable guide we know. She also shared her knowledge about so much more than the tour itself included. Thank you Fatma. Christina/Finland
Had a wonderful tour with...
Charles_K, Apr 2023
Had a wonderful tour with Mohmoud Hoka and Mohammed the driver. Could not have enjoyed the tour more. Great way to experience Cairo on my relatively brief stay. Comfortable transportation and an exceptional guide. Highly recommend.
One of the best tours I’ve done anywhere
Ashish_K, Apr 2023
This tour was incredible. Firstly the tour guide Michael was amazing - super punctual, knowledgable, well organised and he looked after us so well throughout. He made sure we saw so many things in just two days and even helped us modify the tour based on the needs of the kids on day 2. It was a great mix of adventure and learning. The communication was seamless throughout - I HIGHLY recommend (of note we were 12 people from UK- including 2 elderly and 4 kids).
Great experience
Shuntai_Z, Mar 2023
Our guide Fatima and the driver are great . Knowledgeable and professional. They are always on time and keeping in touch with us. We had a wonderful time with this tour.
Amazing two days tour with Mushira
miriam_d, Feb 2023
Mushira has been an amazing guide and friend these two days. She knows perfectly all the history about Egypt and speaks an awesome Spanish. We totally recommend this tour to visit Giza, Saqqara, Menphis and El Cairo.
10/10 couldn’t recommend enough!!
Xanthe_G, Nov 2022
10/10 highly recommend this tour if you’re looking to see the best of Cairo, Giza, Shaqqara and Memphis with ease and great hospitality. We had the most amazing Egyptologist called Amir who was very responsive leading up to the tour, VERY knowledgable, well organised, seamless and genuinely great company to be with. Our driver Emam was also great and made getting around really easy and comfortable. Had a traditional Egyptian lunch on the first day and shawarma on the second day - which were also delicious at a nice location! For anyone who hasn’t been to Cairo before, this is the perfect experience to do!
Fun, Fascinating Cairo Highlights
Sarah_R, Nov 2022
Wonderful tour that allowed us to see the big highlights of Cairo with the short time we had here. Our guide Mohamed was so knowledgeable, friendly, and kind. He helped us navigate such a bustling city, took photos, and always had fascinating information to share about Cairo’s history. Would recommend to anyone!!
Mimo and Zimo are the best!
Fara_H, Nov 2021
Great guide and driver duo - Mimo and Zimo, showed us the best of Cairo safely, efficiently and with a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend!
Excellent Overview of History and Culture
Sean_C, Mar 2021
This two-day tour is an excellent overview of most major sites in Cairo. Booking and logistics were professional and timely. Transportation and driver were great. Guide (Gouda) was extremely knowledgeable about subjects presented. Any question was easily answered with graduate level understanding. Tour was organized in a logical and easy to understand manner. I was able to synthesize Egyptian history and timelines much more effectively after this tour. Recommend without reservation and in top tier of my Viator experiences worldwide.
Absolutely top-notch
Jennifer_D, Jan 2020
I cannot recommend this tour enough! I have traveled to 33 countries by myself and this is absolutely one of the best tours I have ever booked! Manar was the most knowledgeable tour guide I have ever met, not to mention the friendliest person. Would HIGHLY recommend her and this tour for future travelers. Even better than described!
