One day trip in cairo with a great Chinese speaking guide
751483147, May 2022
The tour guide is very good and speaks Chinese very well and has a very rich knowledge of the history of the scenic spot. He really helped me a lot when I was traveling alone, and he recommended my authentic food. The itinerary also reflects the guide's care, avoiding outdoor visits to the pyramids when the sun is at its peak. It was a packed but full day with lots of attractions. Cairo was the first stop of my trip and I was very satisfied with the one-day trip. Unfortunately , there was some unpleasant things during the trip, but the tour guide handled them well and guaranteed my interests.
Perfect day of everything we wanted to see.

Our tour guide Dalia was great! We were two friends that wanted to see all the great stops on this tour and Dahlia helped to reach us a lot and feel comfortable in all the unique areas we went. It was wonderful. Here is a photo of us with her at the e d of the day.
Excellent tour
Vuong_N, May 2022
Excellent tour, especially my tour guy name is Sherif and driver are very professional and knowledgeable about the city. I would recommended to everyone who wants to explore the city for a day.
Don’t recommend
Collin_L, May 2022
I very, very rarely review anything. This is the first time I’ve bothered writing a review in years. I feel obligated to for this service specifically. The TL;DR is don’t do this tour, it is very, disappointingly bad in multiple ways: uninformative, annoying, and they try to rip you off throughout. It is so bad I feel like I genuinely let my fellow travelers down by going with this tour. This tour is essentially an 8 hour sales pitch to buy things from various friends of the “Egyptologist”, or to go on different “tours” later in the day or in the future with them. I put Egyptologist and tours in quotes because the actual information you receive on anything is surface level at best, and downright incorrect occasionally. There is little ability to answer any questions. So if you would like to learn anything substantive, I recommend looking elsewhere. Note that the tour guide will try to earn trust with you by saying this day is for you, but if you try to say no to something, it is very difficult for them to accept it (for my group, we had to say we didn’t want to go to the market 5+ times, even just to look). They also recommend outrageous tips. We were told if we wanted to tip, that $5-$7 per person for the camel rides was suitable. Which for Egypt is exceptionally high. Then, you go to different authentic stores, which are just the friends of the tour guide. It’s typical for the guides to receive kickbacks of everything you purchased for any guide company in Egypt, but this was egregious. The guide was upset we weren’t buying more. So you see the pyramids, sphinx, go to a fake Egyptian specialty restaurant that had some of the worst food we have had, go to a couple of stores they want you to buy from their friends at labeled as authentic experiences for extremely overpriced perfume and tinctures, then a bad painting store, then the market (but we didn’t go), then the antiquities museum. They show you ~5 things with some facts then just want you to walk around by yourself where there are no labels. Then they try to get you to do other stuff with them. Two stars because they did show up and bring us to places, and had an ok car. But this was the most disappointing tour I’ve literally ever been on, both in my native country (USA), and any other. I don’t recommend.

This was a private tour so it was only the 2 of us, me and my boyfriend, which made the whole vibe pretty chilled compared to big group tours. The car was clean and the AC worked, the lunch was tasty and good quality too. We are especially very happy about our tour guide Nour. His service was very thorough and he looked after our needs very well. He was also very knowledgeable about the different aspects of the history and present of Egypt, and provided us a lot of interesting information during the whole trip.
Michael was a great tour...
