This was a wonderful experience! From the start our guide contacted us earlier to confirm the tour and ensure we were properly prepared. He made sure to get us to the best vantage points at the pyramids and the sphinx for photos. He helped negotiate a fair price for camel rides as well. He ensured we took adequate breaks and introduced us to traditional coffee, street snacks and the most popular dishes to Egyptian locals. We wouldn’t have found or enjoyed ourselves if it wasn’t for Iman. He was extremely knowledgeable and showed us key points at the museum of Cairo. He also allowed us to explore at our own space to revisit the areas of interest. Finally, we explored the bazaar, which is something no one should miss. There was no weird “shop here” moments. Iman was kind, smart and so helpful during our tour. We really appreciated his calm personality, especially considering how chaotic Cairo can be. I couldn’t recommend this tour or tour guide anymore highly. Thank you Iman

Our best day in Egypt so far! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on everything we visited, the pyramids and the artefacts in the museum. We had a nice meal at a buffet style restaurant and then went to a Bazaar. We were 3 girls alone and our guide followed closely behind us to ensure we were safe, which allowed us to properly enjoy the experience as we were more comfortable. Our driver was very courteous and friendly also. A great tour would recommend to anybody visiting Cairo !
