    I had a guided tour with Nour Nagy and Capoo, who were excellent throughout the day. They had vast knowledge of the history to compliment already amazing heritage sites. I’d fully recommend them as tour guides and look forward to another awesome tour with them. Noir is also an amazing photographer, so being a phone with a good camera for her to take awesome pictures.

    Ayoub and Amir exceeded our expectations of this tour, they were absolutely lovely and honest and full of knowledge i can't speak for the rest but if you are lucky enough to get them as your guide you will not be disappointed. Shukran a thousand times over, we will always remember you! I would give this review 10 stars if it allowed us to

    The tour was well planned and the tour guide, Ayoub was wonderful! He explained the history of the pyramids and answered any questions we had. He was so kind as to even take our photographs and never rushed us. Highly recommend asking for Ayoub when booking this trip.

    Ibrahim, the guide who took us around Memphis, Saqqara and Giza made the trip a memorable one. He was able to explain things clearly and help us around the place be it the history, local food or shopping. He even took extra steps to make sure we enjoy every moment of the tour.

    Our guide Ibrahim was very friendly, knowledgeable and quite patient. He ensured that we covered all the places and had a great time. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

    Another one on my bucket list accomplished! It was a compact day with just the right amount of information given by the guide (Jimmy); informative and comprehensive, yet not overwhelming!

    I traveled in a group of 9 people with a tour guide named Jimmy. He is very caring and enthusiastic and he guides us through one of the most Cairo sightseeing destinations including the pyramids and The Great Sphinx of Giza. Among some destinations we visited in Cairo, these are the best destinations to visit to understand about ancient Egyptian culture and very nice photo taking as well. The camel riding is good but a bit short, but it is very nice experience for those who ride camels for the first time. Jimmy, the tour guide, is very great as he greatly takes care of each passengers in our tour. Highly recommend!
