    Sayed met us at our hotel in the morning and our tour began with a stop at the Museum of Antiquities. Sayed walked us through the exhibit hall explaining the history behind each ancient artifact. He's a phenomenal guide!! Later we went to Coptic Cairo and visited all the ancient holy sites along with the old bazaar. This was an excellent tour with an exceptional guide. Thank you!!

    My airport pick up was late by almost two hours so as a result, I was late for the afternoon tour as well. The driver and the guide were very patient on waiting for me. I told my guide that I understand that we only have two hours left so suggested that we just drive around while he tells me the stories behind the places on the itenerary. He went above and beyond and managed to get off and drop by in each off the locations. It's a bit rushed but hey, who am I to complain, I was the one who was late.
