Fabulous Cairo tour with Fatima
Valerie
, Mar 2020
Absolutely amazing tour with Fatima! My sister and I booked this two day tour of Cairo and it was just wonderful. Cairo is a difficult place to navigate on your own especially as a female, and Fatima took such great care of us both every step of the way. Fatima is truly a treasure, very smart, funny, organized, hard working, patient and kind. We learned so much about Egyptian history from her. I have been on many tours all over the world, but Fatima is the best tour guide I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She texted us on WhatApp the night before to confirm our meeting time and place, and promptly picked us up every morning from our hotel. On this action packed tour, she managed to show us everything a tourist would every want to see and more in Cairo, despite the difficulties we encountered with heavy rain and freak street flooding. She made everything so easy for us. She takes great photos too! We saw so much. Loved the King Tut exhibit with all of the gold and the death mask at the Egyptian museum. Old Cairo and the Coptic quarter was just incredible; reminded me of Jerusalem. Of course you have got to ride a camel by the pyramids - a must do! Crawling through the inside of a pyramid just outside Saqqara was something else. The Alibaster Mosque gorgeous. I could go on and on. Overall, our Cairo Egypt tour experience was truly exciting. The best parts of our trip were the amazing sites and the warmth of the Egyptian people. They were very friendly to us as Americans. I would encourage more Americans to come visit Egypt. I really loved the food; an interesting mix of Mediterranean, Arab, Greek and Italian cuisines. The traffic situation is daunting to say the least - kind of a free for all. Thanks to our van driver who so skillfully drove us safely from place to place. Kudos to Fatima for teaching us the art of crossing busy streets Cairo style! Such an incredible trip, truly a once in a lifetime experience I will treasure always. I can't wait to go back some day.

Fantastic experience

Everything in this tour was absolutely terrific. Our guide, Zena, was an absolute delight. One of the most knowledgeable and personable guides we've ever had for a tour: five stars for her alone. (And our driver, Hassan, was unequalled when it came to negotiating Cairo traffic!) We only had a few days in Cairo but were able to pack in a ton in a short period of time and with great depth as well. Pyramids were, of course, fantastic. Sound and lights, great. Museum was a big hit as well. Well organized, efficient, really kept it moving. Highly recommended.

2 day Cairo

Cover everything in Cairo and perimeter within two days. Non stop action packed. May be hard for children or elderly as they are long days with walking, but you truly see most of it all. Recommend. Guide was M. Gouda and was very knowledgeable and worked with several colleagues for us to receive the upmost satisfaction.

Wow. A trip of a lifetime and not one to be missed!

First off, let me say that this tour was amazing. A huge thank you to our guide Yasser and Tam, our driver. How they can make maneuvering seem to easy, was amazing. I wasn't sure what trip to do and wanted something sort of "all-inclusive" for highlights as I was taking my father as a semi-surprise trip. He knew he was coming to Egypt, but wasn't sure what we were going to do here. I wanted something memorable and once in a lifetime and this was it. Couldn't have been better. I really wasn't sure what to expect but I liked the idea of having a private (not a shared tour) and something with hotel pick up. It's always an adjustment when visiting an area you aren't familiar with and often sharing the experience with large groups makes you feel rushed or having to stick to a specific itinerary. This was the perfect fit for us. I'd also like to point out that Yasser not only speaks English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and I'm sure I'm missing a few others. My father prefers speaking in Spanish so it was nice to have a guide that could explain things both in Spanish and English, perfectly. My father is hard to please - he was THRILLED. Some of the highlights for us (as you can read the itinerary on the website itself) was the camel ride. We were able to ride the camels through the desert and that was an amazing experience. The camels are well cared for and being an animal lover, this was a huge plus for me. Please also remember that this was/is the mode of transportation for those to the area, as was the case historically. Seeing the Sphinx and Great Pyramids (amongst the other pyramids) was absolutely inspiring. Having only seen pictures, being up close and touching the pyramids with my own hands was electric. Yasser also got us extremely close to the Sphinx as well. There is a sound and light show at night which lasts for about an hour. You learn about the history of the Sphinx and Pyramids and they are lit up with different colors - great for the kids if you have them, but you also must listen to the story as it's narrated over speakers. The dinner cruise was also pretty good. Nothing extravagant and if this were ala-carte, I'd probably skip it but as it was included, it was good. I could go on and on (Viator won't let me) but just a great experience and would definitely recommend this trip to those looking for similar expectations. Thank you for an unforgettable trip!

Menar is the best!
Kimberly L
, Oct 2019
Manar is hands down, the best tour guide I've ever had. My friend and I were blown away by her friendliness and how comfortable she made us feel. The tour was terrific, and Manar was not only knowledgeable and attentive, but really wanted to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. She had just as much energy at the end of the day, as she did when she first picked us up. If we had time to kill in between activities, she'd always find something for us to do. We learned a lot, saw everything Giza and Cairo has to offer, and had such a wonderful time. I highly recommend this tour!

Amazing Two Days
tompallett
, Sep 2019
Our tour guide Radwan and driver Yasser made the absolute most of our two days in Cairo. Radwan’s knowledge of Egyptian history was immense and given to you in a clear, concise way. Better yet it was always with a welcoming smile. Truly a friendly pair of people to show you around the greater Cairo area. And you’ll be truly thankful to get a driver like Yasser to navigate the sometimes intense traffic of the city. If we could give him 10 stars we would :)

Excellent tour!! Made even better by guide Eraky! Very informative, friendly, patient, funny, kind. He was well known at all venues and welcomed. Highly recommend if you only have 2 days in Cairo. Note single female travelling alone and felt very safe and well taken care of.

Our 2 day tour in Cairo was by far the best ever. Besides offering so many of the key highlights of Cairo and Giza and Saqarra, we were so lucky to have an amazing tour guide Yasser and driver Ala for both days and Ahmed for the night tours. The 2 day tour gives you everything you would want to experience in the area and more Pyramids, Sphinx, Cairo Museum, Papayrus factory, sailing down the Nile on a Falucca, a dinner cruise with a belly dancer show, touring the most famous Mosque in Cairo, a Coptic church and a synagogue and of course the Markets to shop. The people are so welcoming and we always felt safe.Our Guide Yasser was a wealth of knowledge and he speaks about 5 languages fluently. He was energetic, funny and great company too! The guides have to know about 3000 years of Egyptian history and pass a test to be able to be guides. Our driver Ala picked us up both mornings at our hotel and our guides, Yasser and Ahmed stayed with us wherever we went even at lunch or at the light show in the evening. We were also able to change up the schedule of the day depending on how we were feeling or what we wanted to see. We had an amazing time and would recommend this amazing experience to anyone thinking of coming to Egypt. Cant wait to come back and see them again in the future!

Worth every penny! Took the tour with my wife and we both enjoyed every bit of it. This tour was well organised and we got to see all the main attractions. Our experience was made even better by our very knowledgeable guide Manar and driver Hashem. We felt safe and well taken care of at all times by both. We highly recommend anyone travelling on a short stay to Cairo to book a tour rather than trying to navigate this very busy city where crossing the road can be a nightmare, its best to be guided professionally.

This tour was absolutely AMAZING from start to finish. With a very limited amount of time, I was able to see the highlights of Egypt and by the end I was so sad to leave. I was accompanied by an awesome, professional and fun team (day guide, evening guide, and driver) Manar is an incredibly knowledgeable and passionate Egyptologist (and great photographer, I might add!). Basem was the best driver and navigated the crazy Cairo roads like a pro. Because of my departure flight, my tour had to be cut short so I was going to miss the dinner cruise but they surprised me and arranged lunch on the boat instead!! Overall, I cannot recommend this tour more highly. It made my trip to Egypt unforgettable. Don’t think twice - take this tour with Manar and Basem!
