We took this private tour with Waleed as our tour guide. We just loved it! Waleed was well-informed, accommodating, and most importantly funny! He knows a lot of details about ancient Egyptian history and is passionate about it. It was clear that he really wanted to be sure we had a good time. He also offered to take a lot of photos for us - he knew all the great shots, too. Thanks, Waleed! We'll absolutely book again if we go to other parts of Egypt.
Our tour guide Zenab was very informative and well versed with her job. When we went to the museum, she showed the highlights and gave us lot of information on Egyptian history. There was no need for us to have a separate museum guide. We also had good conversations about general life in Egypt. She was enthusiastic and made our trip fun. She discussed with us what our interests were and planned the trip accordingly. The service was prompt, they guide and the driver were always there on time, courteous and very well organized.
We would highly recommend her.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!! Our tour guide was super knowledgeable, we learned so much with him and knew how to take pics! D He was very patience and very passionate about the history of Egypt! The tour was simply amazing!!! My friend and I simply LOVED IT!!!!
This was an amazing one day tour of Cairo and GIza that hit all the sites I really wanted to see in short time available. It started with a tour of the Egyptian Museum that highlighted the amazing history of this country. The exhibits were very informative and seeing the statues, mummies, jewelry, sarcophagus, and the many features of the ancient history of Egypt was a thrill. From the Egyptian museum we proceeded to Giza to see the pyramids and sphinx. There was an excellent lunch before we went to the Pyramids that provided some time to relax and recharge. After the lunch we went to the Pyramids and the Sphinx. This was a lifelong dream to see these magnificent historic sites. There was even time for a camel ride as well. Following that and because we had some time before the evening dinner cruise on the Nile, we stopped at a perfume show, then a silver shop, and, finally, a Egyptian cotton linen shop with plenty of time to see everything and make some purchases. After that we went to the boat and had the chance to see the sunset over the Nile River. There was a very nice dinner onboard that was buffet style and then some great entertainment, a singer, a belly dancer, and then two dancers doing some incredible twirling around the floor. This was very unusual and was fantastic. So, by the end of the day I had seen the things I had most wanted to see, had plenty of time to enjoy them, learned so much, and had time for even more surprises. I cannot say enough about the best tour guide you will ever have, Manar Atwa, and the driver Hamdi. Manar is an expert on Egyptian history, has advanced degree in Egyptian history and architecture, and can tell you so much you will be absolutely amazed. Manar is the best. Hamdi told me that to drive in Cairo you need three things: good horn, good brakes, and good luck. Well I can tell you that you need a forth, and that is a good driver and Hamdi is great driver. I highly recommend you take this tour and see the main highlights of Cairo and enjoy the whole day. But do it with Manar and Hamdi. They are great and will make you day tour memorable.
We used Viator to book a tour and they turned up on time in a clean air-conditioned car. Zenab was our tour guide and Hossam was our driver. Because there were only the two of us Zenab gave us a tailor made programme. The nicest thing was that she listened to what we wanted and took us to the Pyramids, Egyptian Museum and to both tour shops and 'real' speciality shops. As we live in an Islamic country rather than visiting mosques she took us to the Hanging Church and St George's Church. She also took us to lunch and in the evening we went on the Nile for dinner. It was a long day for her, and us, and she made it a day to remember.
Excellent tour and amazing experience.
My Day with Bassam was beyond awesome!
He is very intelligent and courteous of your time and interest of the tour. It was far from your average Boring talking all day tour. He was funny and made you want to learn so much about Egypt. There was never a dull moment. He takes your pictures and makes sure you know all kinds of fun facts about Egypt. He was very punctual and even waited around for me even tho i was 20 minutes late :( We started our day at the pyramids. The camel guys seem to all know him and weren and #39;t pushy but he did warn me about them. After taking illusion photos for me and seeing the pyramids and the sphinx we went to the papyrus shop where a lady gave me a lesson on the history of papyrus and made me a custom piece. We then went to the oil/perfume shop where i had tea and had perfume prepared for me. After that we went to have lunch while overlooking the pyramids. The food was great! We then went to the Egyptian Museum where he walked me through the highlights of the history of Egypt and special artifacts. After seeing that i was getting a bit tired, he took me back to my hotel for an hour and 30 minute break. He then picked me up on time again as we went to the Andrea Cruise to have dinner on the nile river! The food was traditional Egyptian food buffet style. There was entertainment on the cruise and a belly dancer and a guy dancer. That concluded our day and i must say it was a long but enjoyable one. The price i paid was well spent! I never visit a place twice but i definitely would come back to Egypt to enjoy another tour with Bassam!
This day trip AMAIZING, our guide, Wael , was great!!! he was very friendly, very educated, and was very good planning our trip, noticing if we were tired from the heat, etc... he gave us time to rest, and always asking us if we were doing ok. He made a big difference in our short trip to Egypt, We were very lucky to have him with us!
