    Very interesting trip. We were able to discover Egyptian culture with a great guide. We had lunch in a typical restaurant. The car ensured all our transport from the hotel in safety.

  •  Hans

    We had an amazing experience with Mahmoud as our driver and Ahmed as our guide. We visited the most important places in old Cairo and learned a lot about Egyptian culture and history.

  • Alim

    We had a great day today on our tour to the Citadel, old Caïro, seeing all the mosques & churches, and hearing all the history from our knowledgable guide Hassan. We also had some great local food at the end and enjoyed some shopping to our liking. Also the driver was very friendly. So all in all would definitely recommend this tour

    Very enjoyable and informative tour with a highly knowledgable guide

  • Anca

    The guide was very knowledgeable and fun! I also loved that there wasn't a shop stop to buy anything - almost every tour you take seems to be trying to nag you into buying something at a local shop - here there was no such thing. Thank you!
