“Excellent guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We used Mohammed's service to visit the pyramids at Saqqara and Dashur in April.
We had a female guide, Mrs Seham, who was very informative and knowledgeable - she was excellent. We had a really good day out.
The only thing that grated was being asked lots and lots of times how we were enjoying it and then being accused of not sounding enthusiastic enough!
However, I would definitely recommend this company. Mohammed always answered my emails promptly, Mrs Seham was interesting and very patient with all my many questions and the car was comfortable.

“Above and beyond!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

My partner and I booked a last minute trip to Egypt and found Mohamed on trip advisor. He responded quickly to our emails and answered all our questions, changing the itinerary as needed and making suggestions (as we had little time to research). His price seemed fair for our 2 1/2 day tour. We had two drivers - Hosam and 3bdalla, both made us feel safe in the crazy Cairo traffic. Our guide was Mahmaoud Elwakeel (Medo), he was very friendly and knowledgable! He answered all of our questions, a highlight was finding out all about the Muslim culture and religion. During our visit we could not believe how quiet some of the sites were, we even had some of the pyramids to ourselves.

Our first day and a half we did the usual sight seeing - pyramids, Sakkara, Dashur, the museum. We were glad we had a guide (who was a wealth of knowledge) to point out things we may have missed if we went alone. Also we did not get hassled at all and he gave us many great tips on how to haggle, shopping and where to go etc.

Our last day we went to Islamic Cairo, Coptic Cairo and through Garbage City to the Caved Church. We thoroughly enjoyed the tours through the different Mosques and learnt about their religion. He organised lunch on the days and took us to try the local food, which was very delicious! I had mentioned that I wanted to visited the markets so they added this in as well last minute.

So a big thank you to Mohamed for organising this tour, it is something that we will remember forever and thank you to our guide and driver.

If you are thinking of going to Egypt, please do! It was a great experience and we felt safe especially in the hands of this tour company (even though there were riots on at the time, we just stayed away from that area, the news seems to make it a lot worse). The people are unbelievably friendly and willing to help.

“Excellent services !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

During the end of november 2012 my sister and I have visited Cairo and the most famous historical sites in and nearby the Egyptian capital.

It has been a short but memorable trip. We have enjoyed staying at the Mena House Hotel, next to the pyramids of Giza. The 5* hotel services are excellent. Breakfast and dinner at the hotel have been a delightful culinary experience. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful at all times. Staying at the hotel is recommended, especially when you are able to book a room with a view at the famous pyramids, situated only a few hundred meters away from the historical hotel.

We had the pleasure to have a private guide delivered by the services of Mr. Mohamed Bahaa. During our stay we have been guided around by Mrs. Hoda. Our female personal guide, assisted by a private driver, was very professional and helpful. Within only a few days we have been able to visit all the most famous and intriguing Egyptian historical monuments in the neighborhood.

The political situation in Egypt is unstable and visiting Cairo might seem a bad idea. We can’t agree, because tourists are being taken care of and it even might be the perfect moment to support the Egyptian economy and at the same time be able to visit world famous heritage without standing in line. It’s a great experience to visit the burial chamber of Cheops in the presence of only a handful of tourists.

So, anyone who likes to get this luxury experience for a very correct price, don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Bahaa and ask for his superb guide Hoda. Book a room at the Mena House and enjoy one of the most exceptional cities in the world.

“Naema -our guide- is our hero of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I absolutely reccommend Mohamed Bahaa and his team as tour guides, even our day didn't start smoothely.
We had the appointment at 7:30 at our hotel, but no one showed up. After I had called Mohammed, he arranged everything perfectly and charmingly. In my eyes, this proves his proffesionality even more as if everything runs well!
At the end, Mohamed himself came to pick us up with his private car. He dropped us at front of the pyramides where Naema, our tour-guide, was already awaiting us.
With her we spend a marvellous day around the pyramides, in Coptic Cairo and in the old islamic center of the city, including the famous Khan el-Khalili market. Lovely and very funny, especially as Naema emerged as very competent and flexible guide.
If you'd like to experience Cairo with a female guide, ask Mohamed for Naema!
Thank you Naema and thank you Mohamed for this memorable day! I hope to see you again!!!

“The BEST guide in Egypt!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Please if you are going to Egypt you couldn't be any safer than with Mohamed. He is very knowledgeable and will tailor your tour to show you exactly what you want to see and when you want to see it. Very helpful friendly and from speaking over email to meeting in Cairo the booking was so easy and Mohamed really made me feel welcome and safe. For a one day tour or if you are lucky enough to stay longer I cannot recommend Mohamed Bahaa enough. I know I will keep in touch for years to come as he is a genuinely fantastic guy. Definite 5* service and he made visiting Egypt an unforgettable experience!
