Cairo by plane was an absolutely brilliant day out! We were in a small group of 6 which made it personal and built around us. Our guide Sarwat, was brilliant and full of information about literally everything! We were able to have free time to roam at each venue after the guide had shown us the important parts which was nice. We had a great meal in a lovely restaurant and our guide arranged for us to have a night boat trip on the Nile while we waited for our flight back to Hurghada. To get the most out of the history side of Egypt you should visit Cairo and the pyramids first and then visit Luxor and the valley of the kings after. All in all it has been wonderful!

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

We had a great time during our day in Caïro with our guide Sarwat. Would give 6 stars ;) he took the time to show us everything we wanted to see and told us so much about Egypt. We recommend this tour!

Knowledgeable and kind guide, Ehab. Thank you. Patient, understanding and gives information in an easy way.

Our day Mohamed explains very well, very dynamic and excellent treatment.
