Cairo day trip
Maya_G, Mar 2023
The trip was nice, driver and tour guide was kind and punctual and very well prepared and knowledgable. But i expected more from this trip, it was not even a half day trip, but something like a 3 hours. Did. not see anything special in the market, instead we were rushing
Egyptian Museum/Citadel
Gloria_B, Mar 2023
Everything about this tour was perfect. We had such an insightful experience and our tour guide was a very experienced and educated in Egypt history.
Great Guide
Leslie_G, Mar 2023
It was a great day trip. Mohamed was a great guide. He knows the city very well. He took us through the Khan Khalili and helped me with my souvenir shopping. Took us to a great restaurant near the American Embassy. He really made the day enjoyable.
Not the best experience.
Elisa_F, Mar 2023
We booked a tour with an Italian guide because one of us didn't speak English very fluently. Unfortunately, the guide that has been provided to us didn't speak Italian(only a couple of words). He was very good as a guide, he knew a lot of things (this is why I put two stars and not one) but this is not what we paid for. On top of this, at the end of the tour we were supposed to visit the bazar Khan Khalili but instead the guide brought as to a specific shop where we were basically forced to buy something. So I don't feel to recommend this tour.
Experiencing Egypt...
Luz_L, Mar 2023
Amazing!!! We had a wonderful time in Egypt....This tour was everything we expected and more...We would like to especially thank our tour guide Mustafa Salih for being so professional and also for making us feel like we knew each other for years was a great experience and would definitely recommend it....thank you for the chance to learn about Egypt.
Kimberly_M, Mar 2023
Our guide was nice and very sweet. However, she was very soft spoken and her English was a little limited. It made asking questions difficult. We included lunch with the ticket, but it came at the end of the tour and was a buffet that was disappointing. We would have loved to have had an ordered Egyptian meal instead of steam tray spaghetti and meatballs.

We are so pleased with the tour. It was informative and our guide helped us to manage everything and make it worry-free for us. It has been an amazing experience for us.

Wouldn’t recommend
Rachel_M, Feb 2023
First of all our guide was 40 minutes late. We booked an 8am tour but the museum wasn’t even open when we got there so we waited around even longer. So don’t bother booking an early tour. If you’re interested in a tour guide who walks and talks you through everything then this is not the tour for you. He only gave us a brief overview of everything and a lot of free time. We booked the full day tour but we were finished at lunch time.
Great experience
Michael_L, Feb 2023
This was a wonderful experience! The tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Egypt. The museum was incredible with so many artifacts! I would highly recommend!
Great Tour w/ 1 Flaw
Cole, Feb 2023
Fun tour!!! Our guide Marwa was very knowledgeable on Egyptian History and answered every question that we had. We really enjoyed our time. *Note (To future travelers interested in booking): Make it very clear that you aren’t interested in any of the little detour shops that they try to include if you want to utilize more time in the stops that are actually listed. This is the second time we had to say no to the sprinkling in of these random shops in a tour in Cairo. Some folks just want to experience what’s listed on the description and nothing else, us being one of those individuals*
An exciting tour
Gowri_A, Feb 2023
The museum, citadel and bazaar were unique and interesting. The tour guide Sayeed Amin was knowledgable, interesting, and accommodating.
Worth experiencing
Peeyush_J, Feb 2023
It was a lovely trip to see the Bazaar and the citadel. Mr. Ahmed, was our tour guide and he made sure that we are safe from the local vendors who were trying to fool us at many locations. He was very friendly and had a great deal of knowledge, he was very welcoming and clicked a lot of pictures, unlike other tour guides. He definitely treated us as someone very close and not just tourist. I definitely recommend the tour.
Cairo cradle of civilisation
Mark_G, Jan 2023
Fascinating to see the imprint of so many periods of history in one city. Bazaar was wonderful. Thanks to Ola for guiding us with such skill
Hey you, what’s wrong with you!!
Margarita_D, Jan 2023
We had the most amazing time! Ahmed Mr. What’s wrong with you was our guide. We went to the citadel the mosque of Mohammed Ali the museum of antiquities the bazaar, a papyrus shop class, ate at the best places and shopped till we dropped. He has all the stories he has humor and above all else the hospitality was truly incredible. He wasn’t just a guide he was our photographer and bargained for us. He kept up with 3 women talking over each other and making my husband feel as if he wasn’t alone. He made sure we felt safe and secured. He introduced us to the beautiful culture. He felt like family and we will miss him truly!!! This is a must do tour and if you can request this man I promise you won’t regret it! Shukrun Ahmed!!!!

Day at the Museum
Michele_M, Jan 2023
The Egyptian Museum is incredible! So much to see. We particularly enjoyed King Tut's room filled with the most intricately made jewelry and artifacts. Our tour guide, Mario, ensured we saw all the most important items in the Museum and kept us on track and moving; while still allowing us time to digest the information and take pictures. The Citadel is beautiful and we throughly enjoyed the two Mosques and being able to see all of Cairo. We had a wonderful time at the Bazaar, buying all kinds of things such as a brass camel to commemorate our camel ride and silver earrings that will remind us of the museum, Horus, and Egypt. We had a wonderful day which only got better as we stood on the corner waiting for our driver and watched the controlled chaos of tour buses, camels, people, cars, donkey carts all converging together. Fantastic!
Great Tour!
Stephen_M, Jan 2023
Great your our Your guide Hosni was very informative and created an agenda providing just the right amount of time at each stop on the tour. He also provided great tips in regards to navigating the bazaar.
harry, Jan 2023
Mario was an excellent tour guide he explained to us in detail all aspects of this tour and gave us a taste of cairo.
Tips if you decide.
Earl_W, Jan 2023
Have the guide take you to the Khan el-Khalili bazar near the Mohammed Ali Mosque, which is much better than other areas we have been to. Haggle, because your guide won't help. The prices from the people on the street are better than the stores for the same item. Have a cup of coffee, they'll find you. Also, bring US dollars, no one really wants to be paid in Egyptian pounds.
Thank you Khalaf
Kevin_P, Jan 2023
Khalaf was a great guide. We learned so much. Highly recommend booking with this company, you will not regret!
