We spent a very special day with our guide, Maged, and our driver, Mustafa. The pick-up was timely, the car was clean and air conditioned. Maged was very knowledgeable about the monuments and history around that time. He answered all our questions and was clearly very passionate about ancient Egypt. He also took some amazing photos! After visiting the sites, we were taken to the 3 Pyramids Papyrus Institute, where we were left to peruse on our own. We were told that his store was regulated by the government, implying it was trustworthy. The artwork was beautiful and the lady who explained the process of making papyrus was pleasant. When it comes to the pricing, we paid much more than the regular value of the artwork. It seemed like the pricing was fixed, but it was not. At this point, Maged’s guidance would have been helpful. He did however again organize some gifts for us from the shop as a birthday gift, which was very nice of him. A similar situation occurred at a perfume store.

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 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!
