My tour guide was Mohamed Hamed with Mekawy as driver. The trip exceeded expectations. Mohamed is very professional: he speaks perfect English and has in-depth knowledge in Egyptology. But what was even more important for me as a solo traveler, Mohamed was also a great companion. In addition to showing all the highlights and giving background knowledge we also had phylosophical discussions related to Egypt. Since he know that I am open to experience the local people and culture, I was invited to have a tea + snacks with his friends who work at the pyramid complex. Overall, instead of being another tourist who came to take pictures of the pyramids it was more like having a trip with a local friend and spending good time. I am not sure about the other guides at this company but with Mohamed a great trip is guaranteed.
Our guide Mohamed Hamed was knowledgeable and excellent. We explained to him that this was not our first visit to the pyramids, having been here 20 years ago, we wanted an overview and take some photos. He respected our request and whilst he gave us a brief history, added to the experience by relating anecdotes about the area, it's people and other details that one would only learn from a local. It's a short tour of the pyramids and syphnx, good for anyone who has limited time and wants a good overview.
A very good option that covers the main Islamic and Christian sites in Old Cairo and the Khan e Khalili bazaar. We had a very good guide Ahmed, who covered the history of the area and each site without an information overload. The highlight for us was the visit to the Citadel.
Ayman Gabry was a very knowledgeable and respectful tour guide. He offered assistance with bargaining and provided wonderful insight about the countries culture. Waleed was also very kind with excellent driving skills. We felt safe in their care.
Excursión muy bien organizada. Manal, nuestra guía, un 10. No dudaríamos en volver a repetir con ella.
