My wife & I booked a private tour through the "Get Your Guide" app. We were lucky enough to be assigned Ahmed Elsayed. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, well spoken and passionate about his job. If you book a tour, I recommend that you specifically request Ahmed Elsayed. Highlights of the Cairo tour included riding camels at the second viewing point at the pyramids where all three are in view. In addition, the museum was filled with extremely impressive artifacts. We actually ended up booking a second tour with Ahmed Elsayed two days later to Alexandria. On that tour we visited the Kim al-Shoqafa, Pompey's Pillar, Qaitbay Citadel, the Alexandria Library and had a lovely meal on the waterfront.
Ahmed was the perfect host during our dinner on the Nile cruise ! He picked us up early because we asked if we could possibly stop somewhere before dinner. He was able to take us to that place then still made it on time for the dinner. He was so kind and gracious. He waited with us while we ate our dinner, helped us take pictures and just made sure we had an overall good time. This was the best experience ever !
We were picked up right on time and had a very comfortable drive from Cairo to Alexandria to meet our guide Karim. Karim was fun, entertaining, full of interesting information. He made our two days interesting and lively. The trip was exactly as described and we enjoyed it very much.
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.
The museum was very very interesting. It would take days to see it all. Khan El-Khalili Basaar was a true experience. We have nothing like it in the USA. A must see.
