My wife & I booked a private tour through the "Get Your Guide" app. We were lucky enough to be assigned Ahmed Elsayed. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, well spoken and passionate about his job. If you book a tour, I recommend that you specifically request Ahmed Elsayed. Highlights of the Cairo tour included riding camels at the second viewing point at the pyramids where all three are in view. In addition, the museum was filled with extremely impressive artifacts. We actually ended up booking a second tour with Ahmed Elsayed two days later to Alexandria. On that tour we visited the Kim al-Shoqafa, Pompey's Pillar, Qaitbay Citadel, the Alexandria Library and had a lovely meal on the waterfront.
The tour was exceptional. The tour guide Ashraf very knowledgeable and kind also the driver Draz very helpful, both of them was awesome making me comfortable as i am a women travel alone from the get go until the end of the tour and respectful. The pyramid, the food and the museum was excellent. Ashraf is exceptional explaining with the Egypt history and I learned so much and fluent in english. The baazar its ok but still enjoyable also i love learning the papyrus. Overall the best day ever, will recommended 100%. Thanks so much!!!
Ahmed was great. The visit to “old Cairo” was informative and Ahmed pointed out some hidden gems. The visit to the Citadel, mosque and market was an experience. He was very knowledgeable and kept us informed at all times. We had a great time in Cairo!
Amina was a great guide for our day at the pyramids and museum. She was very knowledgeable, spoke perfect english, and made sure to keep us highly engaged throughout the entire day. Highly recommend!
The museum was very very interesting. It would take days to see it all. Khan El-Khalili Basaar was a true experience. We have nothing like it in the USA. A must see.
