    This private tour is well worth the money! Rania was amazing and knowledgeable. She and our driver were so accommodating and patient with us (including my 70 year old mum). I would 100% recommend this to anyone who has the time to do do 2 days or tour.

    My favorite part of the experience was the pyramids and the museum. If you are new to the country, a tour is the way to go at least for the first few days. If you can manage a private tour, do it. My niece and I spent two days with Karam. The first day was dedicated to visiting three Pyramid sites. Karam very informative and showed great pride in his country. We got amazing pictures and learned about the construction of the great structures. Day two was spent visiting a Mosque with a panoramic view of the city, seeing the hanging church in the coptic city, visiting a bazar and the main Egyptian museum. It was a mind-blowing amount of information and the sense of history was life-changing. Karam remained available to answer questions about Egypt after our tour ended which was invaluable. Feel free to modify the order or content of your itinerary. It may cost more but you will be happiest that way on this one in a lifetime trip. Once again, ask for Karam!

    This was our first time in Cairo, and these two days were really an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide, Amina, was really the best. She took us to beautiful places from undisturbed pyramids (where we were the only tourists) to busy markets, and meanwhile she constantly provided us historical background stories, architectual facts and many other interesting stories. I also find it very important to mention: with her we always felt safe, as she has provided us some good advice on where we can shop safely, pay with euros, or where to have a good coffee. Our driver was also very helpful, he was always there to pick us up, and he also surprised us with some fresh dates on our way back to the hotel. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a profound glimpse into Cairo in just two days. They also speak fluent english, and are very flexible.

    Fatma is the best tour guide I've ever encountered, professional, responsible and extremely passionate about touring. I learned so much about Egypt and the culture from her. I am so glad that I booked the trip with her. I should have book more days with her.

    I did the two day tour. My guide was Fatima. I dont remember my driver's name but was fantastic. Both were very friendly. I overslept one day and they were like "no worries" and just waited for me. They even encouraged me to eat breakfast. They were very patient and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour.

    Soo... i have been using trip advisor for a long time and have never bothered to write a review (shamefully). But my guide Sherif made my visit to Egypt so amazing i felt compelled to come and write a review. I am well traveled and after seeing a couple dozen countries and being on dozens of tours I must say this was up in my top 2 experiences EVER. Probably the best trip of my life! I did the Giza Pyramids twice. Once with this tour and our guide Sherif and once on my own. By far having our guide took away any of the hassles and inconveniences i had encountered without him. This trip in my opinion is waaay underpriced for the incredible bargain you get. I would definitely recommend this tour with Sherif. He is a legit Egyptologist with a wealth of knowledge that'll just blow your mind. Just book the tour, you won't regret it. You'll spend 5 times more money if you don't get the tour just based off of how many times you'll be ripped off for not having a guide... believe me, it happened to me.

    This was exceptionally good. Great way to experience all main sights in two packed days, while being flexible with you individual needs. We traveled with 5 year old daughter and felt highly comfortable completing the whole program. The price is ridiculously low. All tickets are included as well as lunches for both days. You will spend the same just on tickets and taxis between the sites with no guide if you try to do it yourself. And the guide. If you buy this tour - ask for Fatima. She made this tour unforgettable, being absolutely passionate about her job and history of this interesting country. She was chatty, always ready to help and adapt, answered any of our questions about history, current life of the country and on recommendations where to have dinner. We visited during Ramadan, so all museums closed at 15.00, but she managed to organise everything so that we made it to all points. On top of that she was able to keep the pace of storytelling even in the middle of the heat and fasting without water (you remember we had this tour during Ramadan?). So all in all Fatima was the one, who made us enjoy Cairo and admire great history of Egypt.

    We have just completed this two day tour and it was an unforgettable experience from start to finish. Our guide Gouda and driver were super efficient,professional and polite. He was extremely knowledgeable and made our trip special. I would highly recommend Gouda as a guide and an all round decent guy. He took some amazing photos and brought us to a shop in the bazaar for really cheap, nice souvenirs.

    Hemos pasado tres días muy buenos con Abdul. Todo bien organizado y él es muy servicial y se explica muy bien, muy recomendable. Lo único ojo con pedir cerveza, puede ser un clavazo importante.

    We have booked a two day tour run by the Tree of life Tours. We wanted to take our grandchildren to Egypt during their half term school holiday. We booked a private car with a driver and a guide for this even. Mohamet, the tour guide, did phone the day before we were due to start the tour to confirm all details including times of pick-ups and also asked if we had any special requests to be included in the itinerary. We were most fortunate to have had Mohamet as he had been most professional in his job, taking the time to explain in details all the historic places. Nothing was a problem for him, showing the highest patient with our grandchildren of 7 & 11 years of age. We were so pleased with the services and the attention we received during our two-day tour that we booked a third day for a visit to Alexandria. My wife, my grandchildren and myself would like to sincerely say a big thank you to Mohamet. Would we use the services of this company and Mohamet in particular? For sure.
