We had a day layover at Cairo on our recent trip to South Africa. We were initially hesitant to visit the city, but we are REALLY glad we did it with Real Egypt! Samir and his team made us feel very comfortable and safe from the moment we stepped thru customs at the airport. Very personable team! We were really impressed with how knowledgeable Samir is from the start of the journey at the Christian Quarter. He was comfortable talking about modern, medieval and ancient Egypt and pretty much any topic you can ask. From there we visited sites of the ancient pyramids, the boat museum, the sphinx, memphis and sakkara. We love it that he is into photography so he helped us take some amazing photos! The fact that he knows the ppl around so well makes us feel very safe. Samir was very efficient with the little time we had in the area and we were able to see all the sites requested. He took us to a local place for lunch; it was refreshing to be able to experience the local cuisine, people and atmosphere. One of my favorites was walking through the medieval section of Egypt, where most tour groups don't take you to. It was an unforgettable time. Samir was so kind to stop on the way to buy us local snacks. Our driver was super efficient in getting us to places as well, despite the crazy Cairo traffic. We travel a lot so we know what good and bad service is, and we have high expectations. Real Egypt definitely surpass ours expectations. We'd Highly recommend this tour! In fact, when time permits, we will return to take advantage of Samir's other tours to Luxor and Southern Egypt in the future. Five Stars!!!
