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 !

Sam was a fantastic guide, very good at explaining and gave us plenty of time to explore. Luxor is beautiful and a must see. Kept us in the shade to explain as it was close to 40° (July). Mohamed was a great driver, very safe and kept the car cool for us! Brilliant tour!

The experience was truly awesome, the guide Mamdouh-kamal had taken me everywhere and was very knowledgeable and he was very friendly. The driver Ragab was also very good and always near by. Highly recommend and will come back next time I’m in cairo
