    Hardly understood our tour guide’s English and lunch was very local (not a good place at all). After booking, couldn’t reach the local tour operator; and tried several time before getting a hold of him.

    I took this tour on Saturday morning before leaving Cairo on Saturday afternoon. Magi my tour guide confirmed via WhatsApp the night before and was prompt with her arrival on Saturday morning. She was very knowledgeable and knew everything there was to know about the Coptic Cairo area. The tour does not take long however which meant we sat down for lunch at around 11:20. And Magi was not eating so just sat at the table with me whilst I ate my lunch. This didn't bother me too much though and if you are in a group then of course, this would not be a problem.

    The tour was perfect, the guide was a little odd. The Coptic City was fabulous and very interesting.

    The coptic tour was a lovely look at the lessor known aspects of Cairo. This was not my first trip to Egypt yet I never knew that the city had such a great history regarding Christianity and Judaism. The tour itself is well timed and makes the most of the short walk. Our guide, Michael was superb. He was very knowledgeable and highly informative. He made the tour enjoyable and was one of the most friendly guides we have ever had in Egypt. We enjoyed a good lunch and more than enough snacks and water during the tour. I highly recommend this tour for those wanting to explore more than just the pyramids. We will definitely include this tour again on our next trip. If you want to learn while you tour, then Michael is the best guide for you.

    I did a full day tour instead of the Giza pyramids and Coptic Cairo. The experience was wonderful, and the price was very reasonable for the average tourist. Highly recommended going with Viator tour! Tour guide was knowledgeable and accommodating. Camel ride was included along with lunch.
