I highly recommend this tour, my Guide Ali and drivers Mustafa and Mustafa were brilliant. Ali was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. He was very respectful and friendly and made me feel safe (being a solo female traveller) it was very well organized and the best way to see the sights! Made my trip very memorable and special. The only downside was getting ripped off at Sultans Palace (perfume shop) so please be careful if you go there and don't be pressured into buying anything... I got charged £160 and I almost cried, that was the only negative of the whole trip. But it can't drop a star because my guide was so good! (he wasn't there at the store) so it wasn't his fault. I still highly recommend this tour, very attentive and amazing knowledge. I learned so much and saw so many amazing things and great photos too :)

The tour was very well organized and the guide was there on time and the driver also seemed very experienced and the drive was very pleasant. What irritated us a bit was the fact that the guide didn't seem to know exactly what was on the program. I first had to show him the program so that he could find out exactly what we were going to visit. I also have to honestly say that although the guide spoke good German, it seemed as if a lot of the information had been memorized. He didn't understand most of our questions, or at least it gave the impression that he couldn't understand us very well. For a tour guide we would have wished for a little more exchange and not just learned facts and figures.

Very good excursion which allows you to discover Cairo more quietly. Ahmed our guide and our driver Mohamed were very friendly and efficient. All the sites visited are extraordinary…. and the dinner cruise, although from another time, is amazing and a must do to see Cairo at night from the Nile. The vehicle does not have wifi and we did not have a SIM card as mentioned in the description. It was not very inconvenient except for our young people. The visit of the sites over the two days is to be defined with the guide before departure to avoid doing them at a run in order to finish earlier. We recommend this tour format.
