Had a great time with Mohammed the 17th Mio. Were picked up from the hotel on time and a detailed history was told on the spot at the sights. I can warmly recommend the service. An additional service was also offered that was not part of the activity in order to be able to continue enjoying the following days. 10 out of 10

Kholoud (our guide) and Mohad (our driver) could not have made our stay in Cairo any better. Kholoud was wonderful and charming. The explanations were clear and rich, therefore an excellent explanation. He answered all our questions and helped us at all times. Without a doubt, we would repeat a thousand times more with her! We are clear that Kholoud made our stay in Cairo more enjoyable. As for Mohad, we had a wonderful experience with him and he was attentive at all times on the journeys that were made with the car. We are delighted with the service offered by the agency and especially with Kholoud and Mohad. We are convinced that if we ever return to Egypt we will repeat with you without a doubt.
