What people are saying about Cairo

It was a hot day, my tour guide Salma show me every temples in Luxor and shared her knowledge with me about history of every temple. I felt bad that she have to go with me all day under the heat. my air balloon ride was cancelled due to weather so I choose quad bike instead and the one who doing the quad bike are really nice and friendly. hope the tour should include the quad bike option also. The hotel in Luxor are horribe, no towels in the room, there stuffs from previous guests in the fridge..I hope they give us option to upgrade to better hotel. the flight they book for me so late so I arrived midnight in Luxor so cant tour around the area at night.

Our guide, Hany Mahmoud, was very informative and helpful. He was good company and fun. The driver, Amir, also for keeping us safe on those crazy roads. Perhaps the day could start later and just take in the Pyramids, the museum and the light show. My wife was hoping to see the markets of Cairo but happy because of the way the day ended with the spectacular light show of the Pyramids and Sphinx. Overall, a magical experience and felt totally safe with Hany as our exceptional guide.
