      Amina was a wonderful tour guide. She explained everything very well. She speaks English clearly. She has a great prespective on Egyptian culture and history. We especially liked her talking about things in Cairo as we were driving to Saqqara. She took lots of beautiful photos of me and my wife. She did not rush us, like some other tours we have been on. The driver got us there rapidly and safely.

      We booked a private tour to Saqqara and Memphis and couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience. Our guide (Amina) was fabulous, she was warm and extremely knowledgeable as we chatted about anything and everything. The sites were relatively quiet with few tourists and if you have already seen the main attractions around Cairo, these two places make a great half day tour.

      Tour started at 9, but our guide Iraki was very accommodating and changed it to 9:30 due to late arriving flight. We were off to Memphis and Saqqara both very fascinating sites. Iraki is well informed and explained everything in detail. Unlike some other tours we took while visiting Egypt, Iraki did not force designated vendor stops. He instead asked and left it up to us to decide. Believe us, it is nice to have them ask you first. The tour was great and would recommend. I am not sure if you can request Iraki because most guides work for multiple companies, but if you can you will not be disappointed.
