Hazem was the best tour guide one can ask for! I was supposed to go with my friends but due to slight miscommunication I ended up doing the tour alone! And honestly I had so much fun still! Hazem took very great care of me and was very concerned about my safety, me tripping or me being harassed by pushy merchands. He took so many pictures of me and brought me to the best spots to be sure I could have lovely photos and memories I could look back too. He was also knowledgeable and knew the history well. We made an extra stop to some perfume, papyrus and cotton factories and also had lunch in a nice restaurant which offered some traditional buffet which was a really great way to end this lovely half day! Would definitely recommend! (Plus the pick you up and drop you back directly where you are staying which is a very nice point as navigating Cairo and traffic are quite chaotic)

Great experience. Tour guide, Busi and driver Muahmmed were amazing esp as we were a family with needy kids! They went out of their way to make everything comfortable for us all. Loved it!

I highly recomand this trip. Was a nice and cultural experience. The guide was very helpful with all, info, pics, tips, etc. The driver was very professional. Lunch was also good.

Guide was informative and kept offering to help take photos. He was also explaining for the most part. Trip price includes entrance to the pyramids and the Egyptian museum.

My guide and drivers were excellent- provided an insightful, fun and friendly exposure to ancient Cairo. I highly recommend Atteya!
