I highly recommend this tour, my Guide Ali and drivers Mustafa and Mustafa were brilliant. Ali was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. He was very respectful and friendly and made me feel safe (being a solo female traveller) it was very well organized and the best way to see the sights! Made my trip very memorable and special. The only downside was getting ripped off at Sultans Palace (perfume shop) so please be careful if you go there and don't be pressured into buying anything... I got charged £160 and I almost cried, that was the only negative of the whole trip. But it can't drop a star because my guide was so good! (he wasn't there at the store) so it wasn't his fault. I still highly recommend this tour, very attentive and amazing knowledge. I learned so much and saw so many amazing things and great photos too :)

We really enjoyed the trip. We've seen everything there is to see. First we went to the museum where we saw all sorts of graves and other beautiful finds. Then we went to a papyrus shop, where there were really nice things. We were very enthusiastic about the pyramids, you don't imagine them that big. You could also ride camels. That was a lot of fun for all of us. Seeing the Sphinx in real life is something you never forget. Thanks to all guides for their help and for the great entertainment ☺️ Attackee Thomas

The one day tour to Cairo was very nice. You know from the start that it will be exhausting, but the view of the pyramids makes up for it. Our guide Eslam took good care of us.
