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.

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!

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!

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

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

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!!

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.

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
Dreamer55600281132
, 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.

My tour guide Khaled is without a doubt, one of the best tour guides in Cairo. His extensive knowledge of Cairo is unmatched. He was extremely patient, taking his time to explain and share his knowledge with me about places we went to. Did I mention Khaled is a great photographer as well! I had an amazing two days in Cairo and I hope to see Khaled again next time I am in Egypt!

Enjoying Cairo

Our tour guide, Manar Atwa, guided our group of 12 American Tourist on the 2-Day Ancient Egypt and old Cairo highlight tour. Her English was impeccable and she made history come alive in her presentations. I really enjoyed listening to her and she took the time to explain the dynamics in why historical events occurred. You can tell she really enjoys teaching and presenting historical events in a really enjoyable manner. She has a great personality and people skills to be a guide. When booking the tour, I had reservations that the tour would be enjoyable. I was concerned that the tour guide would be robotic in exposing things and not be engaged in a positive manner. Manar did an incredible job in providing interesting information to hold us capitative in listening to her. She anticipated our comfort needs and made sure everyone had an enjoyable time. Without any reservations, I highly recommend having Manar as your tour guide. I believe the company aviator is a top notice tour company for the driver was very professional and the tour bus was clean and very comfortable. I don’t really see any downsides to using this organization. If you do book with Viator for the 2-day sightseeing tour in Cairo, do yourself a favor and ask to have Manar Atwa as your tour guide. You will not be disappointed.

WARNING!! do not attempt to tour Egypt, especially Cairo without a guide. I cannot praise our guide, Bassan, enough. All tour guides are university educated and licenced, and are a vital and valued part of the Egyptian tourist industry. Bassan was enthusiastic, friendly , and a mine of information. Be ready to confront a city of 25 million people....and nearly as many cars. A holiday of a lifetime, Thanks Viator!

Manar was great tour guide and was very knowledgeable about Egyptian history and hierglyphics. She was efficient in getting us in and out of sites with lines. She helped us bargain and tip appropriately. I would highly recommend her to anyone. This 2 day tour hits all of the main sites. I was even able to add a couple of sites that I was interested in seeing along the way. She was flexible since we moved well through the sites.

We had a great time. Yasser was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, friendly, and fluent in English. On the first day Yasser collected us on time at our hotel, introduced us to the mini-bus our driver, Hassan, and briefed us the day ahead. He explained that because of overcast weather in the morning we should reverse the routine of the day and visit Saqqara first. This worked out well as there were few people at Saqqara, and no queues. In fact we had the Red Pyramid completely to ourselves. Yasser maintained an ongoing informative commentary through most of the driving, and fully answered questions as they arose. After a good lunch Yasser took us to the Pyramids at Giza. We frequently stopped for information and photo breaks, and of course the obligatory camel ride, We saw everything as planned, and the afternoon visit was indeed better for photos. We finished the sightseeing part of the day, and were driven back to our hotel, where Yasser told us about the plan for the next day - Old Cairo. Again we were picked up on schedule, and we visited all the sites as planned. Yasser guided us where he needed to, and when we wanted to do our own thing in the bazaar he stayed close by. We spent just the right time at each site, without feeing that we were skimping, or cramming. Another great day, and we were very pleased with the 2 day package. Of final note Hassan was a hugely professional driver in the chaos of the city's roads.

This was fantastic value for money. Our guide, Khalid ??, was extremely knowledgable, friendly, and had a good sense of humour. We saw all the key tourist areas with plenty of time at each one. The only 'down' side was the constant haggling by hawkers, especially around the pyramids and the camel rides. We found the Bedouin camel operators to be quite aggressive in trying to get the maximum tip possible. This tour is highly recommended.

We enjoyed this tour so much. The company was really flexible and let us add the pyramid night show at our convenience. Really worth it! Our tour guide, Manar, was incredible! She is just a sweet and joyful person who knows her element very well all her explanations of the sites were really complete, told stories of her culture and made a good interactive tour. She also gave us advice on how to handle street vendors and how much to tip. She was our photographer as well and took great care of us in general. I will also recognize the great job of our drivers, they drove for long time and always manage to get great parking spaces and fast exits on crowded sites.
