What people are saying about Mosque of Amr ibn al-As

I had the best day ever! The tour guide was very friendly and kind. The operating tour communicated with me giving clear & important information for the tour. The price is fantastic too because they pick you up from your hotel & and take you to Cairo museum, then to boat trip in the River Nile then free lunch & then final trip to see the pyramids. Then finally they take you back to your hotel. The bus drivers and all the tour guides are very friendly and kind.

Very long journey but bus took nearly day & half but so worth it the sites you see one of the seven wonders of this world, my guide was Mohammad English guide he was so kind & looked after us so well he also explained everything about the history of the tombs & the museum it’s a magical but wonderful experience with this tour I would highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We loved the pyramids and the Egyptian Museum in Kairo as well as the Nile cruise, but didn't like the Papyrus "institute" and the parfum "museum". It made the trip too long and it's very sales related...The trip is very long, we came back after 27h. The Bus driver did a great job Overall great value for money, but lots of recovery afterwards needed.

Our German-speaking guide was called Amar. He did it so well. He brought us closer to the history of Egypt. Thank you Amar for this very nice day.
