We spent a very special day with our guide, Maged, and our driver, Mustafa. The pick-up was timely, the car was clean and air conditioned. Maged was very knowledgeable about the monuments and history around that time. He answered all our questions and was clearly very passionate about ancient Egypt. He also took some amazing photos! After visiting the sites, we were taken to the 3 Pyramids Papyrus Institute, where we were left to peruse on our own. We were told that his store was regulated by the government, implying it was trustworthy. The artwork was beautiful and the lady who explained the process of making papyrus was pleasant. When it comes to the pricing, we paid much more than the regular value of the artwork. It seemed like the pricing was fixed, but it was not. At this point, Maged’s guidance would have been helpful. He did however again organize some gifts for us from the shop as a birthday gift, which was very nice of him. A similar situation occurred at a perfume store.
We had a wonderful first day in Cairo with Mervat as our guide and Ramy. Mervat explained to us very well the sightseeing attractions before we saw them and then reinforced the message when we got closer to the attractions. We also got a general understanding of Egyptian culture, economy and living. She answered all of our questions with great english, professionalism and empathy. Ramy was a great driver, always took care of us, made sure we had water with us, snacks and was in a good mood, always very caring and stopping by the closest possible to the sightseeing attractions to avoid us having to walk too much. Ramy ensured we used hand gel sanitizer throughout the day as a covid protective measure. We felt safe, both followed Covid preventative measures with face masks and it felt safe visiting the pyramids given limited people (very empty) which was also great for pictures! I definitely recommend the tour and also travelling at this time of year. Great hospitality!
A lot to see in a say but very do-able. Starting in Memphis with some time to meander around pieces and parts and then to Dashur for the Red and Bent Pyramids. Enter both and take a good look. Finally to Saqqara for Step Pyramid and surrounding structures. Also worth a look inside. Our guide was Michael and very informative. He moves fast for old folks but he’s great with questions. Farouk was driver and maneuvered around with ease. A great day and a good value. We finished early and ended up at both essence shop and papyrus shop but really no pressure at either place and I’m sure these add ons could be politely declined. A great educational day.
Breathtaking experience! Our guide, Mohamed Kafafy and our driver were both incredibly efficient, friendly, and kind! We did not have to worry about anything, because Mr. Kafafy took care of everything and we were able to just enjoy the experience. We saw an incredible number of sights and experiences (plus have delicious lunch) along the way. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and we appreciate his personal sense of Egyptian history and pride. We bought incredible souvenirs from the carpet school, the papyrus museum and the perfume store. We truly recommend this experience fully! Shukran Jazilan Thank you so much!
This company was great!! I booked 1 day tour from Cairo to Alexandria, family of 4, private tour. Company got in touch with me a day before so I knew what to expect, were in the hotel on time. Adam was my guide, very kind and knowledgeable. Transportation was comfortable with good AC. Lunch was in the Fish Market restaurant which have an awesome view on the Mediterranean sea. Driver was very good and friendly. I will recommend booking here.
