Amazing work experience, exceeded my expectations. Amr our tour guide was brilliant, he was friendly and extremely knowledgeable regarding Egypts history. You can tell he’s so passionate about what he does and was so enthusiastic about teaching us all about the history of his country, we learned so much, it was fascinating. The tour included entrance into the bent pyramid at dasher and the pyramid of Unez at Sakkara which we were not expecting. Going inside the pyramid of Unez was one of the highlights of the day for me, it’s beautiful inside. The lunch included was delicious, they served grilled meats alongside a buffet selection of traditional hot and cold foods, it was very tasty. We then drove into Cairo and spent an hour ride on a felucca boat, it was so tranquil as we had the boat to ourselves. I definitely feel this tour was worth the money and a must do when visiting Cairo.

We had an amazing time on this tour and can only recommend it. We were only in Cairo for a very short time and the tour gave us an opportunity to see a lot of the things we wanted to see in a relatively short time. Our guide, Randa, and our driver, Sam, were simply wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for a better team. The tour organiser was equally kind and responsive. Thank you all for a lovely time in Cairo, Giza, Memphis and Saqqara!

It was a fantastic day, the driver and the tour guide were amazing and easy to talk to. we got lots of information and visted so many places. Our guide was also a great photographer and made us feel really comfortable. as female travellers I would really recommend this agency.

Mahmoud Eman was very accommodating and knowledgeable. This particular tour was great as it covered all the major sites around Cairo in one day. We were also able to adjust our start time due to a logistical issue, so we were grateful for the flexibility.

Had a wonderful tour with Samaa and our fantastic driver Mohamed. Would highly recommend!
