A wonderful day strolling around the atmospheric streets of old Cairo

The tour was really great. I learnt a lot about Cairo and the tour was totally tailored to what I wanted to learn about. We saw some beautiful spots and I felt safe as a female travelling alone. Mohamed really went out of his way and ever helped me to arrange a dinner cruise after another company let me down. I would 100% recommend Mohamed and his tours!! He took some amazing pictures too!

Our guide was punctual well spoken and friendly. My score would have been higher if we hadn’t spent 40 mins having a coffee and 30 mins eating local food.

Fun, safe, and detailed tour- would recommend!

Excellent tour, would highly recommend! Hameeda (our guide/driver) was very knowledgeable, showed us many of the local spots in Cairo, and bought us coffee and lunch. We walked around old Islamic Cairo, through the famous Bazaar there, and were able to go into a mosque. He made us feel safe and welcome in Egypt- very important for us as we were two young women traveling alone. Hameeda also set us up with a great Nile cruise after our tour. The only criticism is that we didn’t receive much communication before the tour, but on the day of the tour Hameeda was very communicative and let us know what time to expect him at our hotel.

Old Islam and papyrus maker

Mohammad gave an excellent private trip to two of us. Picked up on time at hotel and discussed what we would do. Since there were just two he was flexible though we stuck to planned stops with an additional visit to papyrus store which was very interesting. He was very knowledgeable of the immense history of Cairo. Found the market to be underwhelming to no fault of tour. Highly recommend

Mosques and Papyrus making

Mohammad was an excellent guide. As there were only two of us he was very willing to listen to what we wanted. He was extremely knowledgeable and also took us for some excellent falafel sandwich. He also made an extra stop at the Royal Papyrus shop where we learned about making “paper” which is primarily used as canvas today. “Opportunity” to purchase papyrus art but not a hard sell. Appreciated seeing how it is made. Saw several beautiful mosques and old Islamic part of the city. A very good first tour of Cairo. He was also a skilled driver -horrible traffic!

Old Coptic and Islamic Cairo private tour

We had an excellent and knowledgeable guide who was very accommodating and added additional sites to show us per our request in the last minute. Comfortable car with hotel pick up and drop off. Allowed us to take time at each site. And the best part was that our guide Mohhamad Hussein treated us to local Egyptian street food.

Islamic Cairo

Had a blast with half day tour at Islamic Cairo and Khan el Khalili. We had an awesome tour guide named Youseth who knew a lot of information of Cairo overall. Although I’m a Christian, I wanted to get more insight in Egypt’s culture and major religion which is Islam. Was able to go into Mosques and walk towards Cairo’s famous market. Youseth gave us all the time we needed to shop. Meedo our driver was funny and both made the trip unforgettable. Highly recommend this tour!
