  • An excellent experience, the guide Nasser was very knowledgeable and a very pleasant character who made it clear I was the focus of the day. Accordingly we adjusted the schedule to fit with my requirements and when I had had enough -am a lazy tourist, there was no protest about we must see this or we must do that. And when I made it clear at the outset that I wouldn't be at all happy being touted around the sellers of stuff this was never an issue.
    For me a private tour is the perfect way to spend a day seeing the wonders of Cairo. And Nasser was an excellent guide.

  • Best tour of three that I have taken here. He will actually take you anywhere, you want to go. Five stars.

  • What an amazing day in Cairo, with the best guide. Nazir and our driver picket us up on time at 9. We visited the pyramids first where he helped us navigate through all the tourist traps. A bonus after this was the purfume shop which is worth a visit but not included in the itinary. After this we asked for a local lunch, he treated us to some fresh mango juice an then we went for lunch cheap and as local as you can get. The churches and especialy driving through garbish city was unforgettable and a must do experience!
    I highly recommend this tour! We ere well looked after and Nazir went out of his way to make us feel welcome.
