All the places were fantastic! Our guide Ramon was so knowledgable and enthusiastic about everything! Don't go to the museum without a guide-there's too much, you'll be lost!
The tour enriched my experience and expanded my knowledge of the local culture.
Nader was an excellent guide. Knew the fine details of each area and exactly where to go. Would recommend his expertise to anyone heading to Cairo.
This was a wonderful tour. We were extremely fortunate to have Henry Ayoub as our guide for two days in Cairo. Because of the elections we had to modify our original itinerary, but Henry's recommendations meant that we did not miss anything. Next time in Egypt we will use South Sinai Travel and especially Henry Ayoub.
Our guide Fayod was unbelievable, he was knowledgable, fun, funny and relaxed, he didn't force us to do anything, took us to some great places and even gave hell to some store owners who were quoting us ridiculous prices on Scarves. It was great, he just started giving these guys crap in Arabic and they gave us killer prices after. If booking in Cairo only ask for this man as he is the best.
Enjoyed every minute of it. The Museum has so much to see you will want to return. The bazaar was fun and colourfull. Let the guide do the haggling if you buy anything you will save a few dollars.
Great tour. We had Hani as our guide and Zeku as our driver. Both extremely friendly and courteous. Hani is very knowledgable and willing to go outside the tour itinerary to personalize our tour. It was sad that the museum was so desolate (given the low tourism in Egypt right now) but I have to say that it was really nice to have the place pretty much to ourselves. Breathtaking to see King Tut's posessions. Khan el-Khalili was fun but be prepared for very pushy vendors. The mosque is gorgeous.
We received exceptional service from Mamdough and our guide Hanan. They were extremely professional, but friendly and caring. They went out of their way to make our trip unforgettable. Hanan was very knowledgeable and made our visit to the Egyptian Museum memorable.
I suspect the success of a tour is relative to the guide. My guide, Heba, was excellent. VERY well informed and kept hecklers away.
Superb trip. The guide showed us the highlights of the museum which took 2 hours but without whioch we would have wandered ainlessly for longer.
Excellent! The guide was great and the tour was well organized but also flexible.
Our driver Mohammed and guide Shereif were always punctual (more that we can say for ourselves). They were professional, knowledgeable and ensured that we had a great time.
Very good day, the guide was very good, spoke good English and knew his history. Lunch was very good.
Hanan, our guide, was most informative and my friend and I (on a private tour) learned a great deal, saw much of Cairo and enjoyed the tour very much.
Our guide John, which we had for the 2 days we were in Egypt was outstanding. He is a very knowledgeable and caring guide. John always made sure my husband, who was having trouble with the heat, was always equiped with water. This young man is an asset to you.
Our expert guide, Bishoy, provided the expertise and hospitality to make this an exceptional day. Getting around the city and exploring the Egyptian museum through this tour was fabulous. We learned so much more in an effortless way than my friends who also visited Egypt but did not book similar excursions in advance with this company.
I have to see the King Tut gold mask if you go to Cairo. A new museum is opening in 2011. My guide, Walaa, told me. It is going to be in Gaza by the pyramids. Alabaster Mosque is beautiful. Khan el-Khalili is not the best place to shop but great place to take photos. Be ready to be harased!
