Solosh was an ideal guide. He was impressively well educated and knowledgeable and took care to explain what we were seeing. He was friendly and when we asked to see a particular type of factory, he managed to arrange it. We really enjoyed the tour and his insights. The driver was always meeting us exactly at the right time; we never had to wait or walk particularly far. I would thoroughly recommend doing this tour with Solosh and Ocean Travel (the company subcontracted). The sights we saw are of course a must for anyone visiting Cairo. This was my second time here and it was far better seeing things wirh a guide than without.

It was a once in a lifetime experience, thanks to our guide Solosh and our driver Rami. They made this day so special for us, it couldn’t have any better. All our wishes were granted, we got so much background information about the culture, explained in a very entertaining way with a great storyline. Thank you Solosh and Rami, we will never forget this day and also we will never forget you.

Great day tour with the highlights of Cairo. No souvenir shops etc. Booked group tour, but was the only guest. Guide and driver (both Ahmed) were very attentive and friendly. We also took a moment for a coffee. Great day!

Both tour guide Mohammed Doma and driver Michael are excellent, professional and knowledgeable, letting us have a pleasant and informative trip.

our guide was very informative and accommodating!!
