Excellent tour! Americans should feel very safe traveling to Cairo.
We were pleased with our Viator tour in Cairo. We were met by a "meet and greet" representative who helped us through the VISA process and immigration. On our way to the Giza pyramids he switched with our Egyptologist guide, who had an extensive knowledge of the pyramids and architecture of other buildings in the area. He also was extremely knowledgeable about the exhibits in the Egyptian museum. Both of these guides had good English. Our driver negotiated the horrendous Cairo traffic without incident! Our only disappointment was the remnants of a sand storm made for less than ideal photographic opportunities!
The guide and driver where both very professional and where great. very happy and will select viatour again.

Awesome! Aladdin our guide was a encyclopaedia of information. He explained so much to us not only about what we were seeing but about the culture and life of Egyptians. He was very easy to understand. We had a fantastic day.
The tour was absolutely wonderful. We visited the most famous tourist sites and a few shops when you can buy traditional essential oil and papyrus. The tour guide was very understandable and very wise, he could answer all my questions and I learn a lot from him about egyptian history. He also gave me advices about dealing with street vendors around the city and the pyramids.
The private touur is the way to go. Hasan was a most knowledgeable guide, especially at the Egyptian Museum. He knew a great place to get the cartouche my wife wanted. A totally enjoyable day with door-to-door service that eliminated all our worries.
Mahmoud Ahmed is a wonderful guide, he was knowledgeable about everything we visited (including the unique pieces in the museum, which is impressive) and I had an excellent experience! He was very proper, important because I travel as a single female, and I will ask for him on my next Viator trip!
Our guide was fantastic, and I would love to have done more tours with him. The pyramids were a great site to see, but the awe wore off after about 10 minutes. The Museum was amazing, tuts mask was better than I had imagined possible. I was tired of being harassed to ride a camel though.
Superbly organised, our driver was waiting for us at the airport and the tour began right away. Our guide was informative, amusing and completely willing to adapt the trip to suit us. Highly recommended.
My tour guide (cannot remember his name) was excellent and explained everything so well. Also, after he realized I was not trying to buy anything so he made all the sellers at the pyramids go away, which was nice. He also informed me of all of their tactics so that I would not fall into the sales traps (them trying to put things in your hands so that you have to buy). Great experience and a must see.
The tour was excellent!! We had a great time and the guide was fantastic and a wealth of knowledge. We especially enjoyed the flexibility in spending as much time or less at the different sites. We added a camel ride which was an amazing exprience.
I went on this tour alone and my guide and my driver were amazing. They let me change the itinerary so that it suited me inlcuding more time at the Museum and less at the Bazaar. When I told them I was interested in politics they took me to all the sites affected by the revolution and explained it all. They also taught me many Arabic words and told me the nice places to eat.
Passeio muito legal. O guia foi muito simpático e profissional. Foram pontuais e muito eficientes.
This is a must. Make sure you bring extra money to enter the pyramids if you want. Also some money to allow use of a tripod and some more to ride a camel or horse. Its a blast. Entering the wives pyramids are free. The bazaar wasn't as good as I thought. No cobras or monkeys. :( Just lots of clothes and things already being sold other places. Fortunately since I already saw the museum he took me to old Cairo instead. So that was a plus. Also avoid buying anything at the papyrus place he takes you. They charge a lot for the initial paintings. Other places can charge less.
