We had a wonderful first day in Cairo with Mervat as our guide and Ramy. Mervat explained to us very well the sightseeing attractions before we saw them and then reinforced the message when we got closer to the attractions. We also got a general understanding of Egyptian culture, economy and living. She answered all of our questions with great english, professionalism and empathy. Ramy was a great driver, always took care of us, made sure we had water with us, snacks and was in a good mood, always very caring and stopping by the closest possible to the sightseeing attractions to avoid us having to walk too much. Ramy ensured we used hand gel sanitizer throughout the day as a covid protective measure. We felt safe, both followed Covid preventative measures with face masks and it felt safe visiting the pyramids given limited people (very empty) which was also great for pictures! I definitely recommend the tour and also travelling at this time of year. Great hospitality!
This trip was my favorite day of my vacation! Mahmoud and Remy made it so much fun. Mahmoud is so knowledgeable and really helps you feel apart of history. You will get to see the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, the Bent Pyramid, and Classical Pyramid here you can get some cool pictures and see how the progression of Pyramid building happened. You can go inside and see the tombs which you should do for at least one of them. Later in the day, you will get to go and see the three Giza Pyramids, climb up on the Great Pyramid, and all day you will have so many great photo opportunities. Mahmoud and Remy both helped record the experience and made the feel like you were hanging out with friends! Lunch is at a local restaurant and is very good with a variety of local dishes. When you book make sure you ask for Mahmoud and Remy with Ocean Air Travel, they seriously are the best!
Maged was a great tour guide, who you can tell loves his job. He had a great level of knowledge about ancient Egypt and taught us a lot of interesting information. I would completely recommend Maged for newcomers who want to learn more about the culture and history of Egypt.
We couldn’t have had a nicer tour guide. Ayman was wonderful! I highly recommend asking for him. We felt like we were friends by the end of the trip. We loved Alexandria! We weren’t able to get into the library due to restrictions but Ayman made the trip so much fun.
We had such an amazing day in Alexandria with a driver and a fantastic guide. I recommend the trip!
