In December we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to have a short stay in Egypt. We had arranged a couple of tours with Marian's company which included a visit to the Eyptian Museum, Sphinx, Pyramids and to the White Desert. Akmed our tour guide was exceptional, he had fantastic knowledge, spoke terrific English and had a likeable friendly... More

I was planning a 2-day visit to Cairo and wanted to tour Cairo using a guide and I was taking with me my wife and three children (aged 7,6 and 1) and younger brother. Having read the positive reviews I emailed Marian Sobhy and we agreed an itinerary and cost. The cost of the tour was 1510 Egyptian pounds which... More

My daughter lifetime trip was going to Egypt, she's been talking about it since she was 7 (she is now 13), read books, internet research, the whole thing. It was very important for us that she got to see Egypt, she is slowly losing her vision, and we don't know how long she has, so visual memories are quite important.... More

The title speaks for itself- I was not picked up, I have sent an email since with no reply. Extremely disappointed.

I visited Egypt with my wife for 7 days. For the majority of the time we were in Sharm El Sheikh however for our return we had a stopover for a day in Cairo. I had looked up for a tour guide when I initially booked my holiday and came across Marian whose reviews were very good. I remember emailing... More

I chose Marion because she replied promptly and worked with me to provide just what we wanted, she is very approachable . Our tours with her were enjoable and her English is good. I would happily recommend her to anyone looking for an easy friendly helpful guide

I have just returned from Cairo last night and spent a few days in the city. I had pre-booked a tour with Marian that was to include Dashur, Saqqara and Memphis. Marian was at the hotel early and when I finished breakfast we set off with Ahmed, her driver who was a great driver and fun to be around. We... More

Me and my wife recently came back from our 6 days trip to Cairo. Before leaving for the holiday I was really concerned about our safety because of the protests going on in Cairo due to the presidential election, we decided to book a tour guide and booked Marian Sobhy for the whole trip. When I contacted Marian via an... More

My wife and I visited Cairo for a pre-cruise stay in May 2012. We initially booked Marian for a morning tour of the Pyramids and main attractions, but when we found out that our cruise line would be collecting us too early from our hotel for the arranged tour to be possible, switched this to an evening tour. We found... More

From emailing Marian a few months out to get quotes etc - she was always quick getting back to me. We hired Marian for two days to take us around Islamic Cairo and the Citadel. Basically I knew nothing of the history, so Marian started from the beginning and taught us everything we needed to know. I'm sure she thought... More
