We had a great day with our tour guide Mahmoud Emam, driver Ahmed and the photographer Ramy Afifi. The Travel assistant Rania Afifi was well cooperative before and after I came from my home country Switzerland . Mahmoud was so compassionate and took cared of us in each point. And he explained about the history of Cairo, pyramids and so on perfectly. Our professional photographer Ramy took us all the pictures as we wished made the event memorable. Lastly the driver Ahmed tolerate with us in our day. My huge thank to the whole team, that they brought our day valuable and pleased. I highly recommend this guys as tour guides to all those who travel to Egypt in future.

Highly recommended Excellent service The lady Rania contact me while I was still in U.K she introduced herself, when I spoke to her she helped arrange the transfer from airport to hotel she organised the tour, guided me, she was very helpful and available all the way through my trip The service and tours were excellent. The guide was incredibly knowledgable and gave us a fantastic day in Giza, Cairo. We learnt about history, art, culture and much more. We are well traveled and have high standards, and we were very happy with the service- Rania was truly amazing and she speaks excellent English. 10/10.

Verything was fantastic. The communication from the start was clear and told us all we needed. They picked us up on time and our tour was way more than we expected. Our guide Mustafa Ortega was knowledgeable and excited to show off his countries treasures. Our fiver Mohamed was a godsend as driving in Cairo is a nightmare. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy our day. Lunch was fantastic, many delicious dishes, and dessert was outstanding. We have absolutely nothing bad to say about our day.
