Being a solo girl traveler I was always afraid that something might happen to me. I loved the trip, Will was very nice and respectful. Showed marvelous places. When coming back to the hotel, the driver said he was going to drop off other passengers first (I taught it was weird since I’m the morning I was the last one being picked up). When me and the driver were alone he told me I was beautiful and asked if I wanna do something with him which made me super uncomfortable and afraid

I would recommend this tour to those who are looking to explore and understand Cairo in more detail ranging from his history to religion. Our guide Ali was great. Lots of knowledge and very friendly and helpful. He guided us through so many ‘secrets’ and explained the mosques, streets and overall the history of Egypt/Cairo very thoroughly. Bonus points for Ali for taking some amazing photos of us.

We had THE BEST time! From start to finish, everything was taken care of! Our guide was wonderful!! It was a small group so we felt like it was a really personable experience. If you’re considering doing this tour, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! This is our third trip with this company booked whilst we have been in Egypt and it won’t be the last!

Kariman is an exceptional guide who has a complete understanding of the wonderful ancient history of Egypt. She was able to guide us by showing us the best places in this magnificent city. Warm and smiling, she shared her passion for history with us. Thanks to her for this wonderful day.

A guia sabe muito a respeito de toda a história, cultura etc. É muito competente e desenvolve seu trabalho com maestria. Não há passeio mais enriquecedor que este, por isso não dá para perder. O almoço também foi ótimo!
