We had to be picked up at our hotel at 1:00am to catch our flight back home. Our driver and guide made us feel very safe and secure. He also made sure we were checked in, our luggage tagged, and walked us to the security gates. Great service.

Private Tour: Fayoum Day Trip from Cairo

Cairo, Egypt

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a very interesting tour. The ride to the oasis was entertaining as our guide told us many stories about Egyptian legends and myths. We visited a small park area where children were playing, stopped by the shore of a lake and took pictures of the ancient waterwheels. Very picturesque. On the way back to the hotel, we stopped for lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Pyramids. Our guide never stopped amazing us on his hospitality and we felt like we made a friend for a lifetime.

My Review
The tour we had was fantastic. To see the sights and the info that our Egyptologist provided was amazing. Our guide was able to point out the original paintings and explain what they meant from either the drawings or on a Kartush. We did find it difficult to keep all of the different dynasties separate and know which Pharaoh was with which Pyramid. We probably should have studied a little more before our trip so we could have better understood everything we saw. Our guide spent extra time with us and took us to a small local restaurant to experience authentic Egyptian food! We couldn't have asked for anything else. A private tour is the only way to see Egypt. I wish I could give the guide and the tour more than four stars.

We were picked up by an experienced driver in a very safe vehicle. This tour was an interesting addition to the other sites that we had seen. It gave us a different perspective, and it also allowed us to see another time period of Egypt. Afterwards we had a great lunch and were able to share many interesting stories. Our guide was very entertaining and he guided us through the cultural differences that we experienced.

Private Tour: Alexandria Day Trip from Cairo

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour gave us a wonderful overview of Alexandria and we saw everything we wanted to. Our driver was very professional and we felt secure during the entire trip. Our guide explained many of the things we saw on the drive there that were not familiar to us, such as the pigeon houses. During the ride he also shared his life in Egypt and he never seemed offended by our many questions. We had a fabulous seafood lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. On the way back, we stopped at a roadside rest stop and had Egyptian style pizza. Very delicious! Long day but we didn't want it to end.

Awesome having your own guide. Our guide explained the Islamic faith in very easy to understand details and linked it to other faiths. It was extremely interesting. At the Bazaar, he explained what we were to expect and cautioned us on how to be safe and how to negotiate prices. Afterwards, we had tea and sheesha at an outside cafe. He even found some children books for a friend back home. We couldn't have had a better time.

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The Egyptologist was fantastic he knew so much about ancient Egyptian culture and he answered all of our questions. He never rushed us and gave us plenty of time to explore on our own. He took the best pictures of us in front of the Pyramids. He also made sure we were not taken advantage of during our camel rides which he also helped arrange. A private tour and driver is the only way visit these amazing sites.It was truly an experience of a lifetime.

Great service! Our guide met us at the airport and helped us through all of the entry requirements. He even helped secure our lost luggage by completing the forms with the airline and calling them throughout the next day for updates. Thoroughly explained what we could expect for the rest of our trip and our next guides tipping advice, etc. We couldn't have managed without him. After a full day of travel, it was great to have our guide take care of things and let us relax.
