    I had a very last minute schedule change and Michael was able to help accommodate immediately. At 7 AM I reached out needing to switch my tour to be that day and he rescheduled me for 9 AM which was so helpful. My tour guide was Marsil. I was the only one on the tour and she made me feel comfortable from the start. She was extremely friendly and informative and would answer any questions. I learned a lot of information that I definitely would not have known if I visited all of the places myself. The driver’s name was Mr. Mohammed and he was also great! He was always waiting outside when we were done with wherever we were visiting and was always driving safely. I would definitely recommend taking this tour!

    Bishoo took us on a very interesting tour of Coptic Cairo, the Citadel and mosque. We learned a lot about the history of old Cairo and the Cavern Church where the holy family stayed was a very amazing experience for the those interested in history or the Christian faith.

    Guide messaged us less than a hour before out your saying there was no guide, just driver. We stated that we wanted a guide as were unfamiliar with churches and mosques. If we just wanted to go to place to piece, taking pictures we would have ordered an UBER at a fraction of the cost. He said give him a hr to try and find someone. We waited the hour and no one reached out and we had to do so and ask for the refund. Ruined our trip as it was too late in the day to find something at the last minute.

    The tour and driver itself was good. There were 2 problems which I would like to comment on. The first was the lack of time to explore. It was all about the talk from the guide and lets go to the next thing. The second were the cheap and cheesy methods they drag you into the "museums" which were just places to sell you a souvenier. The first was the payparus museum. Interesting to see how they do it but then they wanted to sell you a piece of their work. The worst was the "oil" place where they create the oils for the ancient egyptians. The guide sat there and drank a cup of coffee and smoked a cigarette while the "local guide" offered you their hospitality and a drink and went on to try to get you to buy their wares. The tour and the places I saw were great but these things were a complete waste of time which could have been spent more in the Hanging Church or other local. The Khan El Kahilili market was walk through it as fast as you could. No stopping, no browsing, nothing.....just walk through and "did you have a good time" . I will admit I had a good time but the tour was all about hurry, hurry, hurry, and selling a bunch of stuff I didnt have any idea was part of the tour.

    We had an excellent introduction with this tour - others combine a musuem or stretch it out to make it too long. We wanted a tour to cover all the religious sites in a half a day and for this its perfect. Our guide Ehab and driver Hossine were brilliant. Very polite/informative. In particular Ehab took many brilliant photos and Whats app them to me, and what happy to overrun time Two things to note - additional stops are offered for Papyrus shop, perfume etc. We did the first and were happy to see it and buy some. We declined the others which is ok. You can say no - lunch isnt included so the description here maybe needs updated. They did offer us a choice to drop off somewhere for lunch or back to the hotel. We didn't mind this as we were tired after a busy 4 hours. But overall great service - well done Ehab and Hossine
