Sayed Mahmoud did a fantastic job of showing us all around Old Cairo and the Egyptian Museum. He organized our day in such a way that we successfully beat the crowds everywhere we went. He was very knowledgeable about all the places and things we were seeing and explained everything completely, all while making sure we were having fun too. He constantly was checking in to make sure we were comfortable, having a great time, and was quick to take care of any needs we had. He took time out to share with us Egyptian culture and foods and always made sure any vendors were treating us fairly. He was also sure to point out all the best photo spots along the way. Sayed is constantly going beyond the requirements of the job and his hospitality shines through the entire day! He will leave you feeling like you’ve made a new friend in Egypt!

Our guide, Khalid, was an incredible source of knowledge on all things Egypt. A licensed and certified Egyptologist he was full of fascinating facts in the artifacts in the museum, churches and synagogues. He was charming and we shared many laughs over the day.

His driver, Mena, was professional and courteous; always opening and closing my wife’s door for her.

Traffic in Cairo is like nothing we’ve seen in our life but despite charging cars, pedestrians simply walking into traffic, buzzing motorcycles he was calm and composed.

We spent around 3 hours in the Egyptian Museum and Khalid navigated us to all the important and not to be forgotten artifacts always explaining in great detail it’s history.

Onto Old Cairo where we visited a store that specializes in essences and oils. Then later we visited the Papyrus store where we saw how they make papyrus. Fascinating stuff! The merchants are exceedingly hospitable and there is no pressure to buy.

From there we went to the Hanging Church and visited a beautiful mosque. We also saw the tombs of King Farouk and the late Shah of Iran.

Lunch was on a large boat in the Nile and was quite enjoyable both for the food and the conversation with our guide.

Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk with a purpose.

We really enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend this tour.

You won’t be disappointed!
