We had such an amazing day with our guide Sameh, he is literally the best. We visited all sites as which were stated in the description, Sameh introduced us so many stories and knowledge about Egyptian history and traditions. The lunch was included in the trip, which we found also delicious. The whole day was well organised, we had enough time to take pictures at each site and to look around. The camel riding was so fun, which I personally think is the high moment of the day. Thank you Sameh for giving us such a great start of our Egypt trip.

Great experience allowing you to cover all the main Cairo's landmark within a day. The tour guide Mena was very punctual and extremely knowledgeable whether on the Egyptology perspective but also Cairo. Our driver Muhammad was also fantastic, well experienced in driving in the Cairo jungle, needless to mention the great Arabic Music.
