Excellent Overview of History and Culture
, 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
, 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!
Amazing tour to see the highlights on Cairo
, Jan 2020
We had a great time on our two day Cairo tour. Day 1 was the pyramids/desert activities and day 2 was inside Cairo (mosques, museums, and bazaar). Our tour guide was Amina - she was knowledgeable and very kind. Our group was four adults - definitely recommend!
Very pleased

I’m very pleased with our tour. Rasha was always very nice and with good actitud. We decided not go to a some stores and we added a boat tour. They were very flexible and there was no problem doing those changes. We are very picky with the food and both lunch we really enjoy it. They were always on time. The shuttle was very clean and we were able to leave a backpack and jackets there.
Cairo at Its Best
, Dec 2019
We were treated as special guests from first contact. Ibrahim was polite, respectful, fun and so very knowledgeable about Egypt and it's history. He listened to what was important to us, found us great examples of local food and made us feel welcome in his country. And he is an excellent photographer! Highly recommend this personal tour.
Solo Egypt
, Nov 2019
I was scared to go on my first solo trip but I had such a wonderful, stress-free time with Ibrahim. He was so knowledgeable in many things and very patient with my questions. He also took amazing pictures and texted me even when our tour was over for the day to make sure I felt comfortable and everything was okay. He definitely made me feel welcome and I felt like I was traveling with a smart friend, not a tour guide. Highly recommended!!

Awesome tour!
, Nov 2019
Our tour guide, Amal, and our driver were great! Very kind and knowledgeable about not only the history, but also on avoiding traffic and knowing the best times to go to different spots to have good views and avoid the crowds. Would absolutely book with them again.
Two days in Cairo
, Nov 2019
Having a guide is well worth the cost. Yasser spoke multiple languages and knew the history of this fascinating region. I highly recommend the tour.
Fantastic jam-packed 2 days in Cairo!
, Jan 2019
We were a family of 7 with grandparents and teenagers. We only had 2 days in Cairo but managed to see and learn and experience so much thanks to our superb guide Zaneb! She was so organised, knowledgeable, and friendly, and catered to all our family needs! Thank you Zaneb! And thank you to our driver who navigated the crazy Cairo traffic so well too!
Absolutely Awesome Personalized Tour
, Nov 2018
We had Zenab as our guide, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better, in fact we asked to have her the second day as well. The tour was personalized as we were offered to make additional stops. We were catered to in the sense that we asked to go off route and stop at the Cairo Harley Davidson store to pick up a souvenir for a family member. Both Zenab and our driver had no problem with it and added it to our day. Due to a late flight on our second day Zenab offered to add to our tour a dinner with view of the Sphynx evening light show and then transfer us to the airport for an additional cost; it was very well worth it. We appreciated this as we could take our luggage with us in the morning and have it all day rather than leave it at the hotel and have to go back. Zenab took fabulous pictures for us and was always offering anything we needed. I highly recommend this tour and make sure to ask for Zenab as your guide.
