What people are saying about Cairo Region

Our best day in Egypt so far! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on everything we visited, the pyramids and the artefacts in the museum. We had a nice meal at a buffet style restaurant and then went to a Bazaar. We were 3 girls alone and our guide followed closely behind us to ensure we were safe, which allowed us to properly enjoy the experience as we were more comfortable. Our driver was very courteous and friendly also. A great tour would recommend to anybody visiting Cairo !
