What people are saying about Cairo Region

Salib was an incredible guide. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and caring. He even got us some amazing falafels (though we hadn’t booked lunch!) and gave us tips on how to avoid the hustlers at all the sites. Salib’s English was excellent and the pace of the tour was perfectly judged - just the right amount of time T each place to absorb all the sights and information and take a few snaps for the protobook Salib made sure we got to see the pyramids from all the best angles and took care to give us our own time during the trip as well to take in fully the beauty of the sites. We were picked up on time at 8am (although we were a little late, Salib was incredibly patient ) and dropped off around 4pm. Overall a fantastic experience made all the better by having the perfect guide. Highly recommend!
