The trip was great from start to end. Karam was a great and knowledgeable guide with tons of stories to tell. Pick up was as scheduled and the driver was amazing at always being there to pick us up after a stop off point. We were only in Cairo for a short weekend but this tour enabled us to see everything we wanted to see in one day. As the tour was private, we were able to spend a little more time in some places than others as they were of more interest to us.
The greatest tour experience by far
I booked my tour 3 days in advance. I was contacted via text a day before the tour to confirm pick up. I stayed at Le Meridian and they said that it’s considered “the airport” and added that I pay an extra $25 usd. Something to keep in mind if you’re staying there. Our tour guide Zeinab was the best! She picked us up at the entrance of our hotel and got started at the pyramids in Giza. We did the camel ride, saw the Sphinx. After that we visited a papyrus shop and essential oils shop as well. We got the chance to visit the museum in Cairo. We had an amazing lunch. And from there we had the chance to visit the Bazaar market, but we were exhaust and we just saw that there was a lot of ppl and we were overwhelmed. She gave us the history behind the places we went while in the car and as we walked. She even took our pictures at the best photo sites. She made us feel comfortable the entire way through. The van we took was clean and had great air conditioning in the heat. I felt safe at all times. Also it was only me and my bf on the day tour. All fees were included and I definitely recommend booking through this tour agency.
Come to Cairo now!
Amazing experience ! Our tour guide Gouda was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot about ancient Egypt while also having an absolute blast on the way to each location. He provided us with fun stories and very helpful advice about the city. We know the next group that has him leading will be very fortunate.
Amazing tour and guide ! Don’t hesitate to book!! 7*
Amazing tour guide (Air Aswani ). Don’t hesitate to book. I booked based on reviews and they were accurate. I had my son (11). It wasn’t an amazing day start to finish. Whatapp contact the day prior .. great communication.. prompt arrival and times. The day was fantastic. The guide and driver were courteous, knowledgeable, took their time and made the day at our pace. I don’t have enough tools words to say. The luck was best food we had in Egypt. (We had the chicken). We had a full day but at a relaxed pace. We saw and did everything as listed + more. You won’t be disappointed, I will hire again when I return with guests. Thank you again to Amr Aswani and the driver.
3/4 day Cairo / pyramids tour
Pickup right on time very nice having private car especially around pyramids it was very busy. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great tour of pyramids and camel rides was bumpy but fun. Need to tip camel person so bring a little extra money. As with a few other tours we took in Egypt they include a few things they don't list this one was papyrus factory and essential oils shop. These are clearly getting kickbacks to bring people but no real sales pressure so that was nice. The papyrus and prints you could buy we're ok I guess but ranged between 20-2000 dollars USD prices were marked in USD so clearly a tourist trap. Again no pressure for sale so that was nice at least. Lunch ok they don't include drinks with lunch, weird, bit bring a little extra, drinks are pretty cheap if it's water or cola, maybe 200 e total so not terrible but annoying to have to have cash. Cairo Museum was great tour guide wanted to guide us around and I think i would have preferred to be dropped off and picked up later didn't realize it was a guided tour. King Tut area was amazing totally worth the visit. Guide and driver were great. Like other tours they need to skip the tourist traps not only would I never buy from these areas but it makes the tours unnecessarily longer. We are already trying to see a lot here in a short time and having to wait on things because you're somewhere you don't want to be and is not described is annoying more than anything. I would certainly still recommend because of the private driver and cost isn't too bad, request in the beginning to ONLY see what is expected, I believe a clear itinerary would have eliminated many unnecessary stops.
