The tour was all I wanted and more! The guide was very knowledgable and explained everything very well. He was also flexible and showed me a few extra things that weren't on the original schedule. There was always enough time to see everything and he took many great pictures of me! I felt very safe on the tour with the guide and the driver, even as a woman travelling alone. I really recommend this tour if you want to see lots of Cairo in a day! Thanks for the great experience!
