The tour is definitely worth it! We were in the super exciting and impressive Egyptological Museum in Cairo, by boat on the Nile, at the Pyramids of Giza and the famous Sphinx, in the Cairo Papyrus Museum, in a perfume factory and in the bazaar in Old Cairo - and all of that a day without stress, with enough time to enjoy each stop. Perfect if you want to get an insight into the diversity of the city of Cairo and Egyptian culture in one day! Our guide "Ahmad 1." deserves a big thank you, he greatly enriched the day with his expertise, his wit and his many stories from the life of a Cairo citizen - "Shoukran Achmad"! There is only ONE negative point on the whole tour that absolutely needs to be changed: The lunch before visiting the pyramids does not deserve its name and from our point of view it can only be rated as very, very bad...

Being a solo girl traveler I was always afraid that something might happen to me. I loved the trip, Will was very nice and respectful. Showed marvelous places. When coming back to the hotel, the driver said he was going to drop off other passengers first (I taught it was weird since I’m the morning I was the last one being picked up). When me and the driver were alone he told me I was beautiful and asked if I wanna do something with him which made me super uncomfortable and afraid

We had THE BEST time! From start to finish, everything was taken care of! Our guide was wonderful!! It was a small group so we felt like it was a really personable experience. If you’re considering doing this tour, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! This is our third trip with this company booked whilst we have been in Egypt and it won’t be the last!

Best day we have had our and we have done a lot of tours. Our tour guide Tharwat was amazing. So knowledgeable and so lovely. So much was packed in but at the same time didn’t ever feel rushed.

Det var ein fantastisk opplevelse. Og guiden vår var veldig flink
