    This was a perfect way to spend a few hours in Cairo. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and brilliant at fitting in all the highlights to our day. Lunch, overlooking the pyramids, was delicious; camel rides with Ali a lot of fun and Michael’s knowledge in the museum meant we saw all we wanted to. Highly recommend this tour and Michael was a great guide. Thank you.

    We were met at the airport by Nour our guide, which instantly made us feel welcome and at ease. We started off in the khan khalili market which was relatively quiet, we didn’t want to buy anything so Nour walked us past a few old buildings and mosques in the old city and gave us some history. We then went on to the museum, it was HUGE! We only spent a couple of hours there where Nour showed us the most important/interesting pieces and then we were given time to explore on our own. We then went for lunch in one of the hotels not far from the pyramids! Food was delicious and filling. You need to pay for your drinks but we knew this and wasn't an issue. We then headed for the pyramids themselves where we got to ride a camel (amazing experience!) and got some great photos from the panoramic point. We quickly went to the sphinx before leaving but we were a little tight on time. Highlights were the museum and pyramids! Had we had enough time Nour had planned to take us to papyrus and oil shops but we weren’t really bothered about this and got to see what we wanted!! Highly recommend Nour as a guide - friendly, knowledgeable and fun!

    A memorable and enjoyable day trip from Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo. The tour guide did not contact me the night before but I rung them to check it was still going ahead. We had a bit of difficulty finding each other at the airport. The guide was a little late. Fortunately I had data on my phone to use abroad. The guide was very attentive and there was a separate driver. The guide helped me into all the attractions. It was amazing to experience going inside the Great Pyramid, even if it was empty inside. The camel ride was 5 minutes instead of 30 minutes but was still amazing. We followed the standard tour itinerary: pyramids + camel, oil shop, papyrus shop, lunch, Egyptian museum. The guide helped protect me from the aggressive Egyptian touts who I thought might hurt me if I didn't buy anything. I was left on my own in the oil shop where they quoted 150 pounds for some oil which I thought was in Egyptian pounds but when they said it was in British pounds I managed to do a runner. All in all, very pleased to see the main sights in one day. Could have done without the oil shop and papyrus shop.

    Nour was an excellent tour guide (& Hussain, our driver, was outstanding in the crazy Cairo traffic). We only had a few hours in Cairo so Nour provided a whirlwind but comprehensive overview of Cairo and its antiquities. His English is very good and his knowledge was superb. This tour also included lunch which was of a high standard and offered great views of the Pyramids. I would thoroughly recommend Nour.

    This day trip was amazing right from the beginning. Nour and Muhammed picked us up from the airport and we did all the stops stated best for us was the Pyramids and the Camel ride. They both got us through the day with no hassle and without having to stop in crowds. Even the oil store we went to was very intuitive with ‘Gugu’. The food was very tasty too and a full 5 course food just kept coming. Definitely highly recommend this private tour with pick up from the airport.

    With limited time in Egpyt it was a wonderful overview of Cairo. It was fast paced enough to fit all the sites in but also slow enough to enjoy everything. Thank you, Esalm!

    What a wonderful day! I had a 16-hour layover in Cairo and was delighted to find this tour where I could be picked up and dropped off at the airport. As a solo female traveller, I requested a female guide. Rania was waiting outside when my plane arrived, and we had a great day together. Not only is she an exceptional Egyptologist, she also has a master’s degree in women’s rights, so it was fascinating to hear her insights on Egyptian culture from ancient history to the present day. We started at the museum, then went to the perfume shop. I enjoyed the experience and didn’t feel any pressure to buy. Then we had a substantial lunch of salad, soup, and grilled meat with rice. Drinks cost extra but are reasonably priced. Then we went to the pyramids - wow! The camel ride was quite fun, though I had to be assertive with the unenthusiastic camel guy to get even 15 minutes. This is the one area that could be improved - if 30 minutes is written in the description, it should be 30 minutes without the guest having to push for it. He did take good pictures though! Then we went to the papyrus shop and the bazaar. Again, no pressure to buy. I was back at the airport 8 hours later with some amazing memories. I felt safe and comfortable the whole day. Highly recommended!
