What people are saying about Cairo Region

Cairo by plane was an absolutely brilliant day out! We were in a small group of 6 which made it personal and built around us. Our guide Sarwat, was brilliant and full of information about literally everything! We were able to have free time to roam at each venue after the guide had shown us the important parts which was nice. We had a great meal in a lovely restaurant and our guide arranged for us to have a night boat trip on the Nile while we waited for our flight back to Hurghada. To get the most out of the history side of Egypt you should visit Cairo and the pyramids first and then visit Luxor and the valley of the kings after. All in all it has been wonderful!

Sam was a fantastic guide, very good at explaining and gave us plenty of time to explore. Luxor is beautiful and a must see. Kept us in the shade to explain as it was close to 40° (July). Mohamed was a great driver, very safe and kept the car cool for us! Brilliant tour!

The guide Ahmed Amin was very good. Very caring and tried very hard to show and explain everything to us. He also saved us from the street traders at the pyramids. So a very, very good travel guide can only be recommended.

Awesome. Im speechless right now. One of the best trips you can ever had. Had soooo much fun. Views were something out of this world. And guide was so fun to he around. Best agency really recommended

Knowledgeable and kind guide, Ehab. Thank you. Patient, understanding and gives information in an easy way.
