Excellent tour. Our tour guide was Mohamed Atef Ahmed. He did an excellent job of taking time to explain each location, its history, and asked us what more we wanted to know about each location. He knew the best locations to take pictures and which vendors were good to shop at. When it came time to drop us off at the airport, he went in and found our gate and where we could something to eat. He then even walked us back up to the airport terminal, helping us with our bags. I would highly recommend Mohamed to anyone wanting to see Cairo.
The tour guide was amazing! He had great insight on the history and allowed me to enjoy it like a local. Visiting the mosques were beautiful and he made the experience a great one
We learned so much about Islamic beliefs on this tour. My husband and I now have a deep respect. Thanks to our Egyptologist guide Ahmed Kamal who not only served as our guide but our teacher as well.
outstanding knowledge and focused spots to take excellent pictures. thank you
Excellent tour. Fouad was an excellent guide and was very knowledgeable and answered all questions.
This tour provides an excellent taste of Cairo. The driver was very professional and the tour guide was friendly, knowledgable and seemed genuinely interested in sharing his knowledge of Cairo. I recommend this tour.
I had the most wonderful guide, he was asking me the entire time if I am still satisfied, if I want to hear more, if I want to go to the loo, if I'm thirsty, I can defnitely recommend this tour.
Our overall manager, from South Sinai Travel, was Remon, who was excellent. Our guide was a woman called Hanan, who did a great job. Everything went smoothly from start to finish, and was most enjoyable.
Incredible, but mostly because my tour guide was so informative and personable.

This was a very informative tour with an excellent guide and a very reliable tour company. Since my time in Cairo was limited, this tour enabled me to gain insights into the history and architecture of old Islamic Cairo. The Cairo tours are really good for those whose time is limited and enable one to see a lot of important sights without wasting time working out public transportation.

The mosques were a great start to our holiday in Cairo. They were a BEAUTIFUL sight and there was so much to learn and be inquisitive about. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, flexible and accommodating and we were able to swop a few things to make our days there more enjoyable. We had a lovley driver and they were both ON TIME. Great and efficient pick-up drop-off service.
An excellent trip, highly recommended to take this tour on a Friday as the light traffic means you only have a fraction of the normal traveling time.

Visiting Alabaster Mosque and Khan el-Khalili bazaar is a must in Cairo. We also loved our Viator Egyptian guide who was, simply, perfect! Absolutely loved this half-day tour!

Awesome having your own guide. Our guide explained the Islamic faith in very easy to understand details and linked it to other faiths. It was extremely interesting. At the Bazaar, he explained what we were to expect and cautioned us on how to be safe and how to negotiate prices. Afterwards, we had tea and sheesha at an outside cafe. He even found some children books for a friend back home. We couldn't have had a better time.
Our guide was flexible and asked us what else we would like to see. Enjoyed this as gave an insight into the Islamic culture and the architecture.
Awesome having your own guide. Our guide was an expert on egyptian and islamic culture, and she was great helping us negotiate at some of the shops. We did all of the "tour" portions first, and then went to the Bazaar which is very much like going to a mexican marketplace - EVERYTHING is negotiated.

The structures and history were very interesting but the guide's explanation of the fundamentals of the Islamic religion made the tour meaningful and memorable.
