Viator booked us with Blue Sky Tours. Tour guide was great and was very opened minded about different religions. Enjoyable day.
Again we had Mohammed As our tour guide was again on time. Really enjoyed our time with him really friendly and felt comfortable. Had our welcome drinks Sugarcane juice which was so refreshing. Loved the Khan El Khalili Bazaar which we visited when it was not busy so had a good walk around. Visited the mosques which were breath-taking and with so much history.
Our guide, Ashraf, was great. He was very informative and gave us all the information we could have asked for. He also was thoughtful about keeping us away from the local street peddlers and the like. He offered to take photos for us and told us what not to miss at the various sites.
Awesome tour. Our tour guide, Ashraf Ash Fares, was knowledgeable, friendly, offered valuable advice and accommodated many of our requests patiently. He was just amazing and made our tour very enjoyable. Thank you Ash!
We did not know what to expect in Egypt so we only planned for a 2 day tour and 3 nights. What a mistake. The local travel company and guide were A amazing. The guide Smiley got to know our personality right away and tailored our tour to what we liked. We ate an amazing retaurant where locals go. We had amazing service and felt like we had VIP service. Even in the places which were touristy, we felt important and didnt mind sitting with our guide like he was a friend and having a coffee or Hookah. He was VERY informative and prompt.
My only complaint was the Dinner cruise. This was very hokey and 'touristy'. We anticpated a nice scenic river cruise but it was with bad food, bad entertainment and the boat did a big circle with the windows closed so nothing to see.
The museum is great. The pyramids and even the night show are such an amazing thing to see. I want to do this all over again!
I WILL be back.
The sites were amazing! I didn and #39;t get to do one of the planned activities because there was no wind. My tour guide made things awkward on more than one occasion. I felt pressured and uncomfortable in a couple of the museum stops. The reason I gave three stars is because of the sites themselves.
Guide was rushing
SMILEY WAS A GREAT TOUR GUIDE, HE WAS VERY KID FRIENDLY! NICE INFORMATIVE TOUR WITH MUCH MORE TO BE SEEN. TWO THUMBS UP WILL USE THIS SERVICE AGAIN
We had an excellent guide for our half day tour of Coptic Cairo. We saw all of the sites listed and we were given lots of information about each from our guide. This tour shows you this part of the city in a snap shot.
This was a good, short tour. The sights are not very huge or grand, but it gives you a good idea of the area of Coptic Cairo. I wasn't sure about all the facts and stories that our guide was telling us. He did talk a lot, and mostly we wanted to look around.
Awesome - Mahmoud was an excellent guide - one of the best we had in Egypt. All guides and cars are subcontracted on as as-needed basis, so booking this could be a variable experience. It seems the guides are not even aware of what has been booked, and so you can be flexible when you meet. Forget needing the printout for barcode scanning - tourguide technology is not there yet in Egypt! We had 2 cars during the day - for the first a/c did not work so if that is a deal breaker it would be in high summer call the local contact the day before.
This has been an extraordinary experience for my wife and I. Our guide Mohamad did everything to make our private trip most enjoyable and unforgettable. We saw everything that was on the schedule in 2 days as promised. Many thanks to our guide for his kind attention, always seeking to please us.
Muhammad Swefy is a guide who has a lot passion for his job. He really wanted to show me
the highlights, and the places that he knows as 'hidden secrets,' but actually available to anyone.
However, he knows them in depth, and is happy to share his knowledge. My tour lasted three hours,
yet if I could have stayed longer, he was willing to carry on because we had only seen a fraction of the
main sites on his list. I learned a lot and truly enjoyed the tour with Muhammad. Best with a few people.
Doing what: Islamic Cairo History Tour
Really great tour! The guide was great, he had great knowledge of the places he was showing us and the sights were absolutely incredible
Step back in time and walk through one of the ancient capitals of Egypt. Truly an amazing opportunity plus a great young Egyptologist who have gave us great insight into the history of this wonderful place. I would highly recommend friends and colleagues to visit this place along with this tour company that have taken us on this tour.

Great tour with a wonderful guide and exactly what we needed upon arrival in Cairo. We had the bonus of driving through some local areas on the way to get a little local flavor!
A fascinating look at the early pyramids and some of the finest art from ancient Egypt and the reign of King Ramses. Highly recommended. Request Mahmoud as your guide he's very personable, knowledgable, and takes wonderful photographs if you're in a group!

Surprisingly I found this the most interesting of trips whie visiting Cairo. Thoroughly recommend this tour. Guide was very open minded on religion and its continued influence in modern Eygpt.
