    I cannot say enough good things about my time with Heba! I went in January of 2023 and enjoyed the experience so much I brought my family back for another visit. Heba is a great ambassador for Egypt with an amazing ability to convey information that succinctly proves how amazing the key attractions are. She’s flexible and can make the magic happen on short notice when you want to change the itinerary. In addition to trusting her with my family I have also recommended her and the company to many of my friends who have had equally amazing experiences. Book and ask for Heba. You’ll enjoy Egypt even more this way!

    I recently had the extraordinary privilege of a day's layover in Cairo, meticulously orchestrated by the outstanding travel agency, Egypt Tailor Made. This marks my second adventure with them and once again, they've managed to exceed my expectations! Our guide, the phenomenal Heba, truly was the heart and soul of our journey. Her profound understanding of Cairo's history and culture, combined with her infectious passion, made her more than just a guide - she was our time-travelling companion. As we toured the historic Mohammad Ali Mosque, the illuminating National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, and the grandiose Grand Egyptian Museum, her storytelling was so captivating that we could almost hear the echoes of the past. She was like a living, breathing history book, unfolding page by page with every site we visited. Her enthusiastic and sparkling wit kept us engaged, making the experience both educational and entertaining. Meanwhile, our driver, Kavafi, was our unsung hero, skillfully navigating Cairo's vibrant yet chaotic streets. His amiable demeanor and professional skill ensured our journey was smooth and worry-free. Heba's local knowledge came to fruition during lunch at Khufu's, a hidden treasure offering a staggering panorama of the pyramids. The culinary delights were as grand as the view, a sensory feast that I'm sure to remember for years to come. My Cairo layover, under the expert guidance of Heba and the Egypt Tailor Made team, was a day to remember! It was a symphony of historical enlightenment, delightful companionship, and visual splendor. I eagerly anticipate my next journey with them!

    We had an excellent 2 day tour in Cairo, one day at the start of our trip and a second at the end of the week in Egypt. Sabry was our guide. He was fantastic and one of the best guides we have ever had. We are a family of 5 and he was brilliant with all our 3 children. He made the tours interesting and engaging and kept the children entertained. We would definitely recommend him to friends and family travelling to Cairo. The tour was well organised, the vehicle was very clean and we felt very safe with the guide and driver.

    We had a lovely tour of the pyramids, Sphinx and Saqqara with our guide Manar and driver Sheriff. Manar was very good with her explanations and ensured we had enough time at each place. Would highly recommend this trip.

    Laila was great! She was great about maximizing the time in Cairo to see as much as possible. Very nice and friendly and super helpful. Highly recommended!

    We had a 10 hr lay over, with a 7 & 9 yr old who did so well to keep up. We had an amazing tour of the Pyramids, Coptic churches and even a Papyris making shop with artworks for sale. (Not obligated to buy...and great staff.) Our driver Saad was kind and parked wherever we got out, so as to have the airconned vehicle waiting close by upon our return at each site. (It is HOT so this was appreciated!) Our bags were also perfectly safe in his care! Heba, our tour guide was highly informative and so very lovely...and full of smiles...she will definitely always be remembered with fondness, and I would absolutely recommend her and the team any day!

    Heba, our guide, was the perfect antidote to a rather hectic Cairo trip. Having arrived late @night and lost 2 bags we only managed 1 hour of sleep before we met Heba and she took us on our first tour to the Pyramids. She was super personable, calm, helpful and her English was amazing (including. Colloquialisms) which was what I needed. She knew a lot about ancient Egypt which was great as I was travelling with a teen who is studying ancient history and already knew the basics. We did 2 morning tours as it was very hot - firstly to the pyramids and Sphinx (we ended up doing the camel ride too which took us to a great view point - Heba negotiated for us and saved us lots of hassle). The second tour was around the Egyptian museum. There was so much to see and it was great to have a guide whisk you to the most important pieces that would be of interest. She was also always able to answer questions about whichever exhibit caught my teens eyes even if it was not an exhibit she had drawn our attention to. I was travelling with my 2 teen daughters and although I would normally be a DIY traveller I had partly wanted a guide to help deal with any hassle we got as we wouldn't have a man with us (I had left my husband & son behind in Australia). I was a little concerned initially when we had a female guide. But Heba was far better than I could have hoped for .. it felt like travelling with a very knowledgeable friend and we certainly didn’t get any hassle. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a guide in Cairo. And I would recommend Egypt Tailor made for creating tours that suited our interests, the time we had and the time of year. Full day tours in July would just have been too much! We also did 2 morning tours in Luxor - covering Valley of the Kings & Hatshepsuts Temple and the Temples of Luxor and Karnak. I never normally do guided tours but it was so worth it in the heat to have an air conditioned minibus pick you up between stops and supply you with ice cold water. Worth every penny. Thank you so very much.

    Our tour guide, Sabri, was able to chat with the local tomb docents to get us into some tombs that aren't generally open to the public, and it was a magical experience! Most tourists are generally attracted to the typical Great Pyramid stuff, but Sabri was able to give us the rundown on some of these smaller tombs which arguably has so much more interesting information and history of life in ancient Egypt than many of the Pharaoh tombs.

    Hanging out with Ahmed Zaki & Mohamed was the highlight of our trip. They were insightful, kind & experts in their fields.
