  • The tour was absolutely amazing! We were welcomed and treated so well from the moment we met our guide until our driver dropped us off back at the hotel. Our guide was Zenab and she was the highlight of the entire day. She was extremely knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions we had, including those from my history nerd of a fiance. We had the chance to do some shopping without the bustling crowds or any aggressive haggling and felt welcome in each place we visited. Also, lunch...SO GOOD. All in all, we had a great tour of Cairo without feeling like total tourist and it's all thanks to Zenab. She even arranged an airport transport for us after we told her we were leaving late that night. If she's leading a tour in any city, I will be the first to sign up.

  • It was truly an unique experience!!!, we were a group of 4 in a van with a Spanish speaker guide. We would highly recommend this tour and specially recommend Adam!!! He is patient and extremely saavy in all matters, giving you precious advice when shopping and lots of knowledge on history at all times during the tour. Being in a such a different culture and language setting Adam was truly a high point of our visit to Cairo and Giza.

  • Ashreaf Zakhary - Cairo tour guide

    Ashreaf was a terrific tour guide to see all of Cairo with. He took the time to get to know us at the beginning of the trip and from there we were joking the rest of the time. He has extensive knowledge of the pyramids and the Egyptian museum. He made sure we got great pictures and even took many of us. I would highly recommend doing this one day tour to see all the main attractions.

  • My tour guide was AMAZING. I was a bit worried since she was a woman and my friend and I are women I wasn't sure if she would be confident enough to control aggressive vendors but she handled herself very well. She was kind, knowledgeable and accommodating.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Great one day tour of Cairo and the pyramids.

    Really enjoyed our full day of discovering Cairo including the marketplace, sphinx, pyramids, camel ride and the Cairo Museum. Finished the day feeling like I had seen everything I needed to see. Thank you Zenab for a great day!

  • Michael, our tour guide was excellent!!
    I would definately come back for your tour.

  • What a long and wonderful day! If you only have a short time in Cairo, I would definitely recommend this tour. You hit all the highlights including the museum, pyramids, and sphinx, but you also get a bit of local culture at the bazaar. My guide Manar was amazing and extremely knowledgeable!

  • We were only in Cairo for a few days so decided to make the most of it and did an 8 hour day trip, definitely worth the money and as a family of 5 we managed to cover off all the main sites. The tour guide was excellent, and lunch was up to scratch.

    The only thing I would change is the two additional things that are offered as time fillers - the visit to the oils and scent display/shop, and the papyrus gallery - The visit to the oils/scent - was a bit of a waste of 30 mins or so - so I would tell the guide at the outset to drop this unless you have a desire to be talked at about essential oils that cure Cancer, Insomnia, Diabetes, Depression etc etc - you get the picture!

    The visit to the papyrus center includes a demonstration of how to make it - which was informative and short - so worth including this.

    The guide was good and her English was good.

  • I only had one day in Cairo by myself and I needed to make the most of it, so I booked a single-day tour with BES Tours and it was the best decision I could have possibly made! I had Manar as my tour guide and she was the most pleasant and knowledgable guide that I've come across in my travels -- honestly. Rather than being 'lectured' (which is what usually happens), Manar used fluid and relaxed conversation to discuss and reveal facts about Cairo and the history of Ancient Egypt. She's also a great photographer and took some pretty great photos of me at the sites. A+ rating!

    From start-to-finish, they take care of your needs and ensure that you cover everything in a thorough manner. My package included the Khan Al-Khalili markets, Egyptian Museum, delicious Egyptian cuisine, Pyramids, camel ride at the site, Sphinx, perfume + papyrus shops, and more. Most importantly, I didn't have to put in the arduous work of navigating a foreign city by myself, coordinating sightseeing, and missing out on essential facts that a tour guide (Egyptologist) can provide.

    Don't think twice -- Cairo is a busy city and can be hard to manage, so this will definitely be worth it!
