Lovely tour of Cairo, we had an amazing walk around the old town, looked around a few Coptic churches and learned a lot from our guide Moshera. She helped us get the best pictures at the pyramids and answered all the questions we had, we even had a few detours from the original plan and we learned a lot from her, both about history and modern life in the Egyptian capital. The bus was very comfortable, the drivers were very kind and helpful. I would 10/10 recommend this tour, even for people who have already visited Cairo.

An awesome experience. It was really beyond my expectations. Omar, the guide, was incredibly friendly with a lot of knowledge of ancient and modern Egypt. I learned so much on this tour about Egypt. Omar even offered me to experience some Egyptian daily life. This kind of experience lets you love Egypt and its people. Also, the driver was really good and nice. One more thing, at no moment, there is any pressure to buy anything which is very rarely in any touristic tour. Merci beaucoup Omar :)
