    A brilliant tour of the pyramids, Egyptian Museum and Bazaar. Our tour guide Ayman Gabry was fantastic, his knowledge of Egyptology was exceptional and he checked we were content and had enough photos before moving on to the next sight. The camel trip was a highlight and hearing about the mummification process at the Sphinx was so interesting. We had a superb lunch before departing for the museum and bazaar. Our driver Mohamed was amazing too and drove safely amid the Cairo chaos. A wonderful trip, would highly recommend, thank you Ayman 😊

    I was looking for a fun but informative trip to the main sights in Cairo for myself and my 16 year old daughter and was impressed with the trip itinerary. From start to finish this was very professionally organised. Our guide Mr Ayman was very knowledgeable, happy to answer questions and gave us plenty of time to wander around safely on our own. The opportunity to shop safely and the stress free lunch break when we needed it were also much appreciated. I would thoroughly recommend this for families with teens!! Kudos also to our amazing driver who got through the Cairo traffic without a scratch, hats off to him xxx

    Just spent an amazing day on this Tour and had the best time ever! Our Tour Guide Ayman Gabry was absolutely brilliant. He looked after us really well and ensured we had great experiences at the Pyramids, the Egyptian Museum and Market. Aymen’s knowledge is exceptional and he shared so many facts with us. We enjoyed the camel ride at the Pyramids and seeing the artificers at the museum. Lunch was delicious and a great choice for one fussy eater! We would highly recommend this tour, especially if you have Ayman as your guide. Mohamed our driver was also amazing getting us from one place to another safely and always there to pick us up promptly. We will definitely return again after having such a positive experience. Thank you Ayman x

    Fatima was a fantastic guide. Friendly, excellent english and very knowledgeable. We saw Cairo, pyramids, sphinx and The Eygptian Museum of antiquities where the Tutankhamen exhibit was a highlight. The tour schedule was flexible and Fatima focused on what I wanted to see. I skipped the bazaar to spend more time at the museum. TIP: Her recommendation to start the tour a bit early was genius. We were two steps ahead of the crowds all day!

    My lovely guide Amina was very sweet and knowledgeable about everything, As a picky eater i refused the lunch and opted for chips, as she sweetly was worried i wouldn't have enough for the day she asked me questions about what i would eat, she managed to get me chicken also. The driver was very nice too, on time and there everywhere we went. All in all i had a great day visiting the sphinx, pyramids, bazaar and the museum! I had a tpyr to luxor with another company the next day but it was cancelled, thankfully Amina arranged a tour for me with them the next day so i would not lose out on my holiday! I had Amal today for that tour and she was also wonderful!
