    The day was amazing. It far exceeded our expectations. The entire day was easy and flowed seamlessly. Ramadan (our driver) professionally and calmly navigated Cairo to the sites. We were very thankful he was driving - the roads are super busy, confusing and chaotic. Ramadan was courteous and a gentleman helping us out of the van. Our tour guide Mo is enthusiastic, friendly, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable on all things related to our tour. Mo was very engaging, sharing historical facts, and stories about the artifacts and places we were visiting. A huge thank you to Mo for taking pictures of the 3 sisters throughout the day as well as helping us plan the rest of our stay in Egypt including additional tours with Mo and Ramadan.

    Bondok provided an excellent and informative day trip in Cairo. We visited many sights. and learned a great deal from his well prepared presentations which he delivered in clear English. Most important he was attentive to the changing interests of the group of four friends. Bodok’sflexibility was critical to the day’s success.

    Our guide and our driver (Omar and Omar) met us promptly at our hotel and gave us an amazing tour of the Citadel of Salah and the Muhammad Ali Mosque. We then toured the Christian churches of Old Cairo. We would have never been able to navigate the narrow streets in our own. Omar helped us shop for authentic goods at the Old Cairo Bazaar. Highly recommend this tour and the tour company, Deluxe Tavel Egypt.
