    This tour was great, our guide was Kadria and she was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She accommodated my request for a vegetarian meal and we got taken to a famous Koshary diner in Cairo, it was a unique experience. Thank you.

    We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, we had on time pickup and vehicle was clean and comfortable. Our biggest disappointment was that our guide changed the order / sequence of visit of monuments and explained that is better... not really for us. We were supposed to do a break for lunch but she said it is better to go to the khan khalil soup at lunch time and we'll do lunch later... We missed the the Cairo gates etc.. Driver was polite and always there to pick us up from various points he dropped us. We were also asked to lie on our kids age to avoid paying monument visit fees... not fair to ask children to lie !! our kids themselves were uncomfortable. All this could have been much more enjoyable if we had a better guide. Please avoid guide Germaine, we had her for 2 days and it was very unfortunate.
