Great Experience
Manoj_G, Apr 2024
The tour was a lot of fun. We had delicious food, went inside the Pyramid of Cheops, went to an essential oil store and learnt more about the essential oils of Egypt, went to a papyrus store and learnt about papyrus, went to the Egyptian Museum and went to a street bazaar. The guide Nour was very nice and gave us a lot of information. It was overall a lot of fun

Alexandros_K, Mar 2024
Yesterday we experienced the most glorious site in the world and we were so lucky hacing the best guide with us! Karam was the most relaxed guy I've ever met in my life, he made us feel so comfortable and made the sense of rushing to just disappear! We enjoyes every moment of our day by learning much about what we were seeing and adjusting the schedule to what we wanted! Karam was more like a good friend who organised everything rather than just a tour guide. Thank you very much!!
Egypt culture and traditions for first timers
Sergio_D, Mar 2024
The cultural experience and the historical facts that Fatima provided during the entire tour made the trip extremely valuable for my first time in Egypt. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and culture, it was very memorable!
John_S, Mar 2024
We absolutely had an amazing experience! Our tour guide Rasha was fluent in English and Spanish which was perfect since it helped with my mom understanding everything about the tour. The driver was also very professional, vehicle was clean and he was a safe driver. Rasha also took us to a rooftop restaurant that offer views of the pyramids and the food was fresh and delicious! I highly recommend booking this tour!
Brilliant experience

Fatima Mohamed was a fabulous tour guide. Her English was incredible and she was genuinely interested in making sure we had a brilliant day. We learned a lot from her and would highly recommend
What a perfect tour guide!

Our tour guide, Mss Mana Atwa, was outstanding. She was a huge asset to our great experience in Cairo. She is extremely polite, very objective and explained great things about the locations, history and culture. The driver was also an outstanding person who added value to our experience. We were very lucky to have them guiding us. On top of this, Mana is also a great photographer. She was so kind taking photos of us all the time. The camel ride was awesome, the pyramids are amazing, the tour inside the museum was very objective and exciting. The walk around the bazzar was amazing. Wonderful experience. Thanks, Mana Atwa.

Tiara_A, Feb 2024
I had a great experience with Mahmoud (Hoka). I travelled alone and he made me comfortable the whole time. He also had a good knowledge of historical and modern day history of Egypt which made our conversations interesting. Overall it was a good experience and I am coming back with a lot of great photos.

More than we could hope for.
Eric_P, Feb 2024
Amazing experience with Zeinab!!! And our Driver, Mustafa is a driving legend. Unbelieveable job both of them. No pressure to buy anything. Let us stay as long as we wanted at each stop. Always had the water refilled when we got back in. Superb tour!
Nice tour
Simone_C, Feb 2024
The tour is good, the guide is very knowledgeable and the driver has good driving skill. Only thing is the price in the shops that I was brought to was bit high. They said they are related to the government, so quality is promised. Honestly I’m not expert, so I don’t know. But they did explain well about the products. And lunch is nice, better than expected.
Our tour guide surprised...
Jiomar_S, Feb 2024
Our tour guide surprised us by speaking our language, she knew very well what to tell and when, she made us feel safe by keeping all the street vendors away from us while in the tour. Also, she individualized the tour by asking our interests for the different locations during the tour (like more history or more photos or more time). I felt the tour was according to my interests thanks to the communication with the guide.
Fabulous full day experience
Howard_P, Jan 2024
The tour was perfect from start to finish. Pickup at my hotel was on time, and the guide had sent me an e-mail introducing himself the night before. He was very knowledgeable, charming and made sure all my expectations were met. We visited all the listed sites, and made great shopping suggestions. The included lunch was terrific. Moumoud Hoka was my guide. I strongly recommend him
Great experience at Cairo
Liu_L, Jan 2024
