Very good excursion which allows you to discover Cairo more quietly. Ahmed our guide and our driver Mohamed were very friendly and efficient. All the sites visited are extraordinary…. and the dinner cruise, although from another time, is amazing and a must do to see Cairo at night from the Nile. The vehicle does not have wifi and we did not have a SIM card as mentioned in the description. It was not very inconvenient except for our young people. The visit of the sites over the two days is to be defined with the guide before departure to avoid doing them at a run in order to finish earlier. We recommend this tour format.

I cannot recommend this experience enough. Ahmet was our guide and by the end he felt like part of our family. Everything was so well organized and on time. Omar experienced so many amazing things in Egypt and saw more than we could have asked for. Ahmet was so knowledgeable and proud of Egyptian history. He made our experience infinitely better with his humor and thoughtfulness. We never felt rushed or pressured to go see any attractions. This has been the trip of a lifetime for us and I cannot recommend this tour enough. The pictures are incredible and Ahmet will take the most amazing pictures for you. If you’re looking for a tour please consider this option - you won’t regret your choice!

I had an unforgettable two days with Emy, an absolute expert Egyptologist & guide! I can’t say enough about the unforgettable things that I saw & learned in a short time. A private driver picked me up and dropped me off at the Cairo airport, which was very convenient & safe. Day 1 started at the Great Pyramids. Emy was an excellent guide, & also a pro photographer! We continued to the great Sphinx, pyramids at Sakara, Memphis, & lunch at a lovely local place. The sound & light show at the pyramids is definitely worth seeing! On day 2, we saw the citadel/mosque & did some shopping. She knew of trusted places for authentic Egyptian things! Another great lunch at a local restaurant & then on to the Egyptian Museum for the King Tut exhibit, & finally the bizarre; More time at both of these places would have been great. Skip the dinner cruise on the Nile; Terrible food, cheesy show, overrated. Emy is amazing and I can’t Thank her enough for the wonderful hospitality and memories!
