Great way to sample this wonderful city!

Our tour guide Noha was knowlegable, passionate and brilliant! Loved having her show us around. Especially loved stopping to grab some delicious local street sugar cane juice, stopping in at a hugely popular koshary place for dinner and even exploring the metro. I would just never have tried these things on my own and so happy I did. Really got a great feel for the city. Loved it. (As a solo female traveller - especially loved doing it in the evening so I could experience the city by night safely).
Great intro to Cairo

Did our first tour in Egypt with Noha and it was great. We experienced local life and had a very tasty local dinner. Noha is knowledgeable and very friendly. We highly recommend this tour to who ever is interested in modern history of Egypt and a local lifestyle.
Fantastic Cairo Experience

This was a wonderful evening learning about the modern history of Cairo. Local guide Dalia has a wealth of knowledge to share about the city, and there are plenty of stops with historical insight to what you are walking past. Thanks to a local guide, the really gain an understanding of the graffitis context and the story behind the statues etc. Wonderful meal of koshary and ice cream rounded off a memorable evening in the Egyptian capital. Great memories. Thank you Dalia and Urban Adventures!
Great introduction to Cairo

Cairo is a very overwhelming city, but our Downtown Cairo walking tour gave us a great introduction that made our time in the area much more enjoyable. Our guide Dalia discussed some of the historical background and (obviously) pointed out the main sights, but also shared some aspects of contemporary Cairene life and culture that let us appreciate the city more. Dalia was very friendly, speaks excellent English, and was able to easily resolve some confusion about the scheduling (caused by us by the way, not Urban Adventures) when we called the Cairo Urban Adventures office prior to the tour.
