My wife and I had a blast with our guide Mina and driver Basem! We did an evening tour that included a trip to the top of Cairo Tower, a sunset felucca ride, El Mokkatam mountain, a koshary dinner, and Khan el Khalili bazaar. Mina took great care of us and was flexible when we wanted to spend time at El Fishawy. Basem or DJ Basem was very accommodating with the music which made my wife really happy. It did not feel like a tour at all. The evening felt like a group of friends that had known each other hanging out and enjoying the evening. He also heard me mention that we wanted to by perfumes and took us to Kingdom Perfurme in Giza where we were able to purchase a couple that we liked. Mina was also awesome at taking photos. I highly recommend the evening tour but you have to do it with Mina and Basem!
This is an AWESOME tour, and a great way to start your Egyptian experience! I arrived to Cairo Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at 8:30am. After a long travel, I rested for the day, and did the tour at night. I was to be in my hotels lobby at 5:00pm. I got to the lobby at 4:55pm, and Ashraf was there and waiting... I love punctuality! We went to the car, and I met my wonderful driver, Bassem. We first went on a felucca ride on the Nile River. It was very enjoyable and relaxing. Ashraf was very knowledgeable of Egypts rich history, and enlightened me on the fascinating history of Egypt as we leisurely cruised. As a solo traveler, I did not have a companion traveling with me to take photos, but Ashraf was very accommodating in taking photos of me. We then went to the Cairo Tower, and Ashraf made aware to me that if I paid 100 additional Egyptian pounds, I could skip the long lines, and have a drink included at the end of the observatory. I am glad he mentioned this added bonus because it saved us a lot of time, and I had the opportunity to try a local beer which was delicious! Next, we went to a local restaurant to have Koushary. It is the nations traditional dish, and it is very YUMMY!!!! I was the ONLY foreigner in the restaurant, but Ashraf made me feel very safe and comfortable. Finally, we went to the bizarre which can be quite overwhelming because of all the hustle and bustle, and the locals like to harrass foreigners to buy their goods. Ashraf was very good at handling the locals, and letting them know when I was not interested in buying. He was very protective of me. We went to a local restaurant in the bizarre to smoke Hookah, and have a beverage. As I was people watching, I noticed a young girl with henna. This reminded me that this was one of my things-to-do in Cairo. I expressed to Ashraf that I was interested in getting a henna tattoo. Before I could finish, he said something in Arabic to the waiter, and within minutes a henna tattoo artist was at my table! She did the most beautiful, intricate design of henna I had ever seen! It was absolutely AMAZING! Ashraf had to agree that it was some of the best work he had seen. At the conclusion of the night, Ashraf walked me to the door of my hotel to ensure my safety. I gave him a really nice tip, and to the great driver as well, but I feel no amount could equal the great experience and memories he and Bassem created for me.
Very jovial guide as he took us to all Cairo's hot spots at night!. We were running behind but he was super patient waiting for us to start this tour. We had an amazing time and would definitely do this again :-
Cairo by night. One of the must do on your 1st day in Cairo. Manar Atwa our tour guide when over our expectations. So much to tell about what we saw and how much we learned in one night... food people and traffic. The Cairo Tower and the view from the coffeeshop inside the Tower a must do...Manar recommended to take a break here and have your 1st cup of Turkish coffee. The Felucca Ride on the Nile and the city view it was just great. She took us to the famous Khan El Khalili Bassar... it was shopping time. She did stop at the shops of your choice and bargained the price for us. Then we stop for some delicious Egyptian food. Spaghetti/lentil and some ref sauce... we just love it. Our last stop was at the top of a mountain from another location just to see the whole City of Cairo. Manar a real...honest and knowledgeable person. Thank you so much for making our experience unforgettable.
Note: We hired her for another improvised tour by us and she took good care of us. Highly recommend
Taha did an excellent job and even found us an excellent dinner- Koshari food!
I had a fantastic time on this tour. My guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.

An excellent trip to spend an evening in Cairo to see the city after dark. Our guide Fatima was very knowledgeable, caring, friendly and resourceful for all our needs. her caring and relaxed personality made us feel very comfortable touring the city on our first night in Cairo.
Absolutely fabulous evening. I was shocked to find myself on a tour with just the tour guide, but it couldn't have been more enjoyable. My guide, Michael, was fun, full of information and created a fantastic trip. I was met at the hotel, driven all around the city and then returned. No parking, walking or safety concerns. The nightlife, the sights, the food and Michael my guide made for an unforgettable visit to Cairo. Do this tour......it will make a tremendous impression and great use of valuable sightseeing time.
I highly recommend this tour! The city is amazing at night and was shown many different parts of Cairo. Michael was an excellent guide
The first day we landed in Cairo, we booked a night tour with Mady, and he did not disappoint. We started the evening with the Cairo Tower, then a sunset Nile Cruise, went for dinner to a local Kushari joint, got a view of the city from a mountain and ended the night with shopping in Khan el khalili bazaar. It was perfect and exactly what we were looking for, on our first night in Cairo. Highly Recommend!
